Traditional American ale, amber color, well hopped with complex malt bill to give it a good balance, sweet and bitter.

UPDATED: DEC 16, 2014 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.

Draft at the source, served in a sampler tray. Pours a semi-cloudy golden amber color with a small, soft white head. Aroma is light, with pale and caramel malts, grass, and citrus. The flavor is led with citrus, then pale and cereal malts. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a balanced, citrusy mouthfeel. Solid amber ale.

b3shine (8107) - Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2012
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.

Tap. Poured a clear amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate balanced hop and malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good session beer.
