On tap at Brewvine, Long Island. Pours caramel color, off white creamy head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, very mild hop character. Flavor is hoppier than the Aroma would suggest, still a lot of caramel malt sweetness. Bitter finish.

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

willisread (953) - 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.
