Draft to taster at The Pint Room. Looks solid; a completely transparent caramelish orange with foamy off-white head. Smells malty with notes of fruity hops, ale yeast, and a touch of toast. Tastes like it smells with a mildly bitter medium-bodied mouthfeel. Solid, but unmemorable.

A rather delicious amber ale. Has quite an uplifting taste. Quite a fruity conponent makes it almost a hybrid between an amber and a pale ale.
