This delightfully floral American style Amber Ale displays a wonderful balance while still maintaining a profound hoppy goodness. We load this beer with a ridiculous and obscene amount of West Coast hops that are added late in the boil resulting in a hoppy beer without any bitterness.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer is served a copper golden color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a lighter level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is big of a caramel smell with a good showing of a bready and molasses smell accompanying it. Along with these aromas comes a little bit of a floral and grassy smell along with a tiny bit of earth. Taste – The taste begins just as the nose would have suggested with a big sweet caramel and doughty taste mixed with just a hint of a grassy hop. The sweet remains strong throughout with the hop growing stronger and stronger as the taste advances all while a bit of a floral and earthy hop comes to the tongue. In the end, with all the flavors transitions that have occurred, one is left with a rather sweet, but lightly hopped amber taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side in terms of thickness, with a carbonation level that is slightly lower. A little thicker body, in conjunction with the lower carbonation, may have been slightly better for the malt and light hop, but overall the feel was pretty good overall. Overall – A decent amber ale with a nice easy drinking abv at only 5.25%. Not a bad brew and one to try if you get a chance.

Can. Clear amber. Floral and malty aroma. The taste adds toasty malt, caramel, and acidic, vinous booze. Not very good. Wouldn't recommend this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This one might as well be sweet tea. Not too much character as this one is malty but unsure of what kind. Not my style.

Terminus (3544) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Can-from beer of the month club Pours deep amber hue with a small soapy white head and some rising carbonation from the middle of glass. Nose is earthy, very toasted, lite piney hops, herbal and slightly earthy. Almost seems like an organic brew. Flavors are strong piney/earthy herbal hops up front with lots of toasted grains across the board. Finishes very earthy/herbal with some strong pine/resin. I feel this beer is actually pretty good for the style. Its a hoppy amber, but not like something like Hop Head Red or Marble Red. This is a good old-school amber with a boost of some hops. well done and this is not a style i really care for. very nice amber in my book.
