Im not a big fan of the amber ale style, but I have been told by so many that this is one of the best. Its good, caramel, amber colored, with a caramel toast presence with a nice hop balance. For the style its good.

I’ve had this on tap and in bottles. Both experiences were pretty good. For an amber ale, it does finish well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber with a white head. Malts are just light caramel and there’s just a slight spicy hop note in the aftertaste. Yes, it’s very drinkable and not really bland, but it’s kind of boring.

(bottled & bottle conditioned). Faintly sweet malt aroma, cloudy lighter-than-copper color (which is very attractive). Moderate body with a slightly sweet pale malty tinge. Nice clean bitterness fades shortly after the finish. Moderate carbonation adds to the body perception. I'd like to see this in a filtered version.

Nice amber color, good white head. Aroma is light fruit and malt. Taste is balanced and slightly sweet malt forward. Nice amber.

Poured from a bottle a cloudy orange/amber with little head. Has a little hop bite at the end. It’s a nice amber ale!

12 oz poured into a pint glass. Appearance is a clear amber color with a medium off white head. Little retention. Aromas of carmels and malts. Nice sweet malty taste throughout. Not much hop character. Easy drinkability. A nice beer.

I enjoyed this beer. It had a sweet aroma with a nice brown color and creamy white head. It was a tasty drink overall with a mild malty flavor. Cheers!
