A nice amber ale. Somewhat carmel taste. Nice aftertaste and good color. Nice aroma and poors really well.

Draught. Clear amber color with medium beige spongy head, very little hops aroma, slightly sweet and spicy taste, medium finish with bitter aftertaste. Reminded me of an ESB.

12 fl oz bottle. Pours well, amber, and hazy with a quite a bit of sediment floaters, and a light creme coloured head. Aromas are light, but mostly caramel, and almost pilsener like straw heavy malt notes. Fuller bodied than I was expecting it starts with caramel, light resinous hops, mineral notes, and light floral notes that lead into a hefty amount of woody/toasty malt notes, and light sweetness that’s balanced out with light metallic/resinous hopping. Super sessionable, and not overwhelming in any way. This here is a top notch six-pack beer.

Bottle. Hazy amber with thin white head. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is caramel and something savory I can’t put my finger on. Medium mouthfeel and light carb. Not my favorite.

"wish list cross-off from pfoxyjohn. unfortunately, i was a little underwhelmed by this one. not expecting greatness, but hoping for a favorite or near favorite for the style. pours a murky amber with a nice looking head. flavor is mostly malt, as is the flavor, and just wasn’t complex, bright, or hoppy enough to do much for me. not bad, but i’ve had much better in the style. 1st disappointment from Kalamazoo

Draft at Milkboy. Hazy mediium-darkish orange with a just off-white head. Fairly juicy citrus amber. Orange pips, juice and peels. Tanned leather sandals. Bell peppers. Starfruit. Persimmon. Heirloom tomatoes. Paprika. Bit bizarre.

Good and solid but nothing outstanding. Is pleasantly similar to Sierra Nevada. Too carbonated for me but so are most American ales.
