Quite quaffable. This won’t be remembered in the morning but the caramel malt sure kept me from having trouble drinking it.

Has a decent color for this style. Darkish brown with a little bit of red tints. The aroma is a little malty with a hint of spice, but overall somewhat bland.

Sampled at the brewery. Good brew, but the selection of styles was causing the beers to run together in my mind at this point. Amber, pale ale, ESB, etc... none of them really stood apart from the others.

Drank from the tap at the brewery. Pours a light brown body with a thin dissipating white head. Taste is very earthy, slightly bready with a crisp aftertaste. Nothing special here, just an average amber.
