12 Fl. Oz. Can. Poured a darker amber, clear with a nice frothy off white head. Aroma is quite floral with some hints of citrus fruits and I’m also sensing some caramel notes. Taste is very sweet, malty and very moderate bitter finish; medium body and nice carbonation making it a very crisp brew. Quite nice after all.

nakedwhendrunk (2202) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - SEP 19, 2014
Reviewed from notes. Thanks Gwen. The appearance was a slight clear amber color with a slight transparency about it. One finger white foamy head dissipated within less than about forty seconds. Light lacing trickles into its body. The smell was a sweet caramel malt with a slight crisp citrus hops underneath. The taste was balanced between the sweet malts and the bitter citrus hops. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a slight sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed decent for the style and for me. Overall, I say this was a decent Amber ale I could go at again.

Lacking some bite in my opinion, but very smooth and drinkable. A bit more hops would be nice.

Pours a thin head on a clear straw colored body. The aroma is faint caramel, with lemon, pine and cinnamon bring up the rear. The taste has a mild sweetness that rolls into a mild lemon bitter finish. Great balance. The texture is soft with moderate carbonation. Good flavor and drinkability.
