3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A winsome transpicuous burnished copper color, the head mountainous in size, creamy in texture, light tan with a fine coating of lace. Nose is sweet, caramel, malt, clean and crisp, a nice beer for the sniffer and the eyes, now let’s see about the palate. Start is sweet, loads of malt, top is fair to middling in feel, the finish spitefully bitter, perky in its acidity, dry aftertaste, a quaffable beer.

I didn't think this would turn out so well, but it did. Light hopping balanced well with adaquate maltiness. Balance is the key here. I can see myself making this my default amber.

Copper color.Nice full flavor of hops with a good balance with the malt. The fruity character really didn't come out for me. My palate wasn't blown away but that's ok. Another good beer from Full Sail.
