Made from mostly pale malt and some Munich and caramel malts. These add a little sweetness, which is balanced by more hops. The result is a rich color and fruity flavor.

A little hoppy for an amber. More of an IPA. Not a lot of malt. Drinkable, but not great.

willisread (836) - Tokyo, JAPAN - MAR 12, 2015
Old rating. A bellwether for ambers. One of my old town go to beers. Pours a clear copper red with a modest eggshell head. Nut-forward aroma with grain, caramel and a hint of stone fruit. Taste is more of the same with the sweetness from the malts and and slight hoppy bitterness balancing well. Watery mouthfeel. Medium light body. Nice smooth finish.

Cloudy light reddish orange with a minimal tan head. Light sweet citrus and floral notes, hay. Crisp upfront bitterness that quickly fades into a sweeter body then re-emerges in the finish. Slightly watery, light body. Medium finish. High amount of acidity and fair amount of acidity. Well balanced.

Sampled at Northgate Liqours tasting. This is light and sweet and refreshing and all the other adjectives that amber ales aspire for. This one nails it. I hope this is cheap because it’s going to be my new go-to easy drinking beer.
