Bottle- I really enjoyed this beer, one of the best amber ales i’ve had. Nice balance of hops and malts. Great hop aromas, with anise malt taste up front and then finishing off with a yummy hop bitterness.

Bottle [330ml] at Rhino. Pours a deep ruby with a large lasting frothy off-white head. Nice aroma of caramel malt, a good amount of fruity hops along with resin and piney hops, some pepper and pumpernickel. Spicy, malty flavour with a good amount of hops along with some fruit and bread. Surprisingly spicy. Decent bitter finish. Average bodied. For an Amber Ale this is really good, I quite enjoyed it.

Do i recommend it?: yeah, well if you want a quite funny beer to drink with alot of taste and sweetness ok. But it does not fully fold into my taste.
Will I drink it again?: probably not in a couple of years. Maybe ice cold (god forbid) a warm summers eve

Impressive Amber ale. Drinks smooth. Good one to share with larger louts and may convince them that craft beer is the future.
