A medium hopped, light bodied Amber Ale. This brew derives its flavor from American grains with emphasis on caramel and roasted malts. oregon grown hops abound. I hope the Avenel gang enjoys this one. Cheers from Augie. (4.6%ABV)

I had it on tap at Bitting. It pours amber with almost no head and good lacing. The aroma is malt and caramel. The taste is heavy on caramel and malt with a hint of hops and bread. The mouth feel is pretty smooth. It’s a good amber.

3oz sample at the brew pub. Pours a clear amber color with a small foamy off white head. Aroma of sweet grain, toasted malt, and old citrus. Taste of rotted citrus fruit, grapefruit skins, soap, and toasted malt.

Tap. Pours clear amber with a medium, frothy light tan head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma is grain and cookie malt, pear fruity esters and a pine hop character. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness with supporting malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

On tap at J. J. Bitting. Pours a clear tawny gold with a thin white head. Sweet malt, toast, caramel, light dusty hops. Medium bodied, light citrus and malt, earthy hops come through. A touch empty. Moves to a nice bitter finish with touches of earth and grapefruit.

I would say that this was just your run-of-the-mill amber, but actually I liked this one more than average.

Draft. Pours golden amber with a white head. Light sweet malty aroma with a hint of hops. The flavor is well balanced, with sweet malts and floral and earthy hops. Pretty good.

Pours, well, amber from tap. Not much aroma to speak of but if you really really focus you might get some hop action on the finish.
