Grapefruit. pine, floral, and some resin notes. Pretty crisp. Light-ish body. Very enjoyable summer amber.

Can @ Kafe Belgie, small sample. Slight hazy amber color, short head. Aroma is slight caramelly, bit malty, some grapefruity hops. Soft bitter in taste, slight sweetness. Quite typical american amber ale I think. Good stuff.

Clear amber colour. Quite a malty aroma with some caramel. Not particularly strong in flavour but the balance is good. Makes for a good session beer.

Can from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a clear amber colour with a thin broken white head. The aroma is toffee caramel resin hop. The flavour is medium bitter with a big hop citrus bitter palate. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Can’t quite believe the aroma to be honest. An amazing beer for me. Need to drink this more often.
