Pours a clear amber on tap with fluffy tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma is citrus hops covering the sweet maltiness. Taste follows, light and easy, medium carbonation. More like a light brown IPA.

This is a nice amber ale. Classic dark orange color with a medium sized head. Good retention. Caramel and fruit on the nose and palate. Light-med sweet flavor that finishes with a bitter edge. One amber I could drink again.

A nice Amber ale, better than most. The confusing thing with this style is that most people expect a hoppy ale from the look of it, but it’s more balanced than that even approaching the maltier side of the spectrum. This one is well balanced with a nice floral hop aroma and flavor along with a cereal and sometimes hay or grassy malt backer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Yamaichi. Medium-strength caramel nose, with a slight earthy note. Reddish-copper color, thin head. Bready, caramel initial / deep hefty hopping in mid / finish is balanced and a bit buttery. Medium body, with hops felt as a thick texture on the tongue. Rich flavors, which deliver on the promise of the aroma. Good stuff.
