3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
7oz on tap at the brewpub. Mostly clear, kind of a darker amber color. Little white head. Bits of lace. Lightly citrusy hop nose. Light-to-medium body. Lighter carbonation. Lightly dry texture. Coold malt bill - kind of toasty, less caramel than in most ambers, pretty clean. Moderate, lightly citrusy hops (grapefruit), hint of spicy hop. Moderate (a satisfying) amount of bitter - less sweet, lightly tart. Tiniest hint of chocolate malt? I usually don’t care about ambers, but this one is different. I can get on board with this.

The flavor is led with citrus, then pale and cereal malts. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a balanced, citrusy mouthfeel. Solid amber ale.

Draft to taster at Fifty West. Looks solid; a semi-transparent copper with off-white lacing. Smells malty and hoppy. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A decent example of the style.
