Malty and a bit sweet. A bit watery in the finish with hints of bitter hoppiness as well. Easy to drink.

Not much in the way of aroma apart from some faint malty aromas. Lightly roasted in the flavor, not as sweet as most amber ales. Drinkable but far too faint in flavor.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Roasty balanced ale. Medium bodied and done well but nothing stands out to me... a bit flat and safe.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a very slightly hazy copper color with a nice off-white head that leaves enticing lace. The aroma is of amber malt and citric and resinous hops. Delicious and balanced, and the flavor follows suit. Not too physically "out-standing", but definitely very balanced--an ideal session brew. Medium body and carbonation. Overall: a great session beer.

Draft: Tinny malt nose. Clear copper, medium yellow head, nice lacing. Tinny barley malt flavor, with toasted chestnut accents. Metallic dried leaf finish. Pretty good if not for the persistent metallic qualities.
