35.5cl can, served in Shaker. Pours dark orange / amber with some white froth on top. Aroma is caramel, ripe fruits and earthy hops. Taste is the same with herbal essence. Moderately dry & sweet finish, the hops and the malts are equally present. Medium body, soft carbonation. A very balanced and easy going amber ale, not as complex as other beers though.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a copper amber-orange color, with a small, bubbly head, falling to thick lacing immediately.
Smells of caramel malts, wrapping up ripe fruit, topped of by a note of zingy lemon peel. Has a perfumy fruitiness of peach and blood orange, which gets perfectly complimented by the sweet, profound malts. Its real quality is the crisp lemon peel though, hovering above the malty nose, adding a pleasant hop punch to the aromas, which also interacts well with the fruits.
Has a creamy mouthfeel, due to a surprisingly low carbonation, while the beer remains refreshing. It features leafy hops among a distinct maltiness, which results in a versatile taste with a pleasant, lighter body.
Tastes of lemon juice dripping grass, together with a herbal note, which blends together with earthy malts, turning caramel sweet, while the beer develops a biting dryness. Dough bread settles the balance, embracing both hops and malts, creating a great malt defined taste, which lets room for a citrussy hop dryness. During its finish, a bubbly carbonation enhances the hops, while malts produce a great ripened fruit quality, initially picked up on the nose.
This is a textbook example for a well made amber, all ingredients compliment each other perfectly, creating a sappy, but sweet interplay with a great mouthfeel to it.

Really classic amber ale with everything you would expect from it: a bit of caramel and bready malts in the aroma, slightly sweet taste at first with a bit of bread crust and some piney and earthy hops and a bitter aftertaste. Well made, easy to drink and quite tasty.
