3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ C.B. & Potts in Greenwood Village, CO. Copper in colour, bubbly off-white head. Smell is predominately malty and nutty. Taste is confusing. Its mainly malty with tones of liqorice, chocolate cream, with a finish that is only a whisper of grassy hops. Very creamy texture. Was not expecting this lack of a hop profile in an "Amber". It’s balanced for an Oktoberfest, and it would probably make more sense under that label. But, that aside, it’s a fine malty brew.
