Really nice amber ale. The beer smells of bready and caramel malt citrus hops in the orange range. The beer is a hazy deep gold to orange with a big dense white head. The beer tastes of bead, caramel and orange hops. There is also some light butter like richness. The body is medium with an incredible smoothness. Very good.

Bottle in Florida. Smells great, almost like a chocolate porter. Nutty flavor. No bitterness as expected. Fuller flavor than many thin ambers. Above average

I kinda thought this would be terrible but it wasn’t! Popped the crown with a loud pop, poured almost as a gusher, with a huge foaming head, thick meringue like texture sticking out of the glass and holding its shape. Took forever to pour. Clean caramel bready malts, light grassy hops. Clean overall approach, fairly done although heavy on the carbonation.

12oz bottle. Pale orange-tan with a steady, frothy head. Dry cherry amber malt and piny citrus hop aroma. A pretty respectable Amber Ale. Solid hop backbone shows. Subtle vanilla tones, not unlike Dead Guy. On the fuller side of medium bodied. OK, well balanced.

Aroma is light hops and earthy. Taste is of dough and very light hops. Pours a nice light brown/medium yellow with a brownish white head. Weak carbonation. Overall not a bad beer.
