Go to amber ale. Does have Bells yeast unique flavor that lingers in a good way. Clearly intended to be hop mild... It is a Michigan staple. Not to be passed on... It’s exactly what’s meant to be.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a brown colored body and leaves a moderately sized white head that lasts for about thirty seconds. Nice spotty lacing appears and some light carbonation is seen rising.
The smell was sweet and has some light hops coming in as the beer warms.
The taste was basically the same with a dry malty aftertaste.
The palate was about a medium and had a dry finish.
Overall, this is a solid American Amber/Red Ale that I would have again.

Tap from Lazy Dog. Pours a transparent dark gold with a little bit of off white head. Aroma floralish hops and malts. Taste of pretty much the same.

bottle. Amber with one finger head. Aboverage amber with caramel malt and some light hops. Well balanced. I don’t really dig this style, but this is an exception.

Bottle. Slightly hazy dark amber colour. Muted aroma but there is some floral hops and caramel with a hint of roast. Medium body, watery mid-palate and a slightly bitter finish. I find this not overly enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brick red color, not much head. Had a sticky palate. Earthy malts as expected. The hops are bitter and woody, but not overwhelming. The woody hops float above the glass and then linger in the aftertaste. Amber isn’t my favorite style but this one has enough hop balance to do it right.
