Aroma is very malt forward, some sweetness in the aroma, very little hop character. Taste is toasty, slight caramel, light sweetness with some sourdough bread character coming through and a bitter finish. Very nice appearance, dark amber and very clear with a nice creamy head. Medium body. Overall, a good beer.

kramer (4860) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear amber body with a small fizzy white head that faded pretty quickly. The nose is slightly sweet with a light graininess, minimal touch of floral hops. The flavor is pretty weak and watery with a thin caramel malt sweetness and minimal bitterness. Rather bland beer overall. Lighter bodied, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. About what you’d expect from most Amber ales.

A good, crisp Amber with floral and caramel notes. A good "go to" beer when you hit a store that doesn’t carry a wide variety of craft beers.
