Easy on the palate and sessionable. Not a mind-blowing beer, but a solid ale, nonetheless. Caramel sweetness, solid bread body. A bit of grass.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Harpoon Tasting Room. Great to try the original, and it stands up to time. Pale Crystal, malt alt-amber sour. but much hops to balance that. A small bier, but very tasty in a limited, restrained Ale

Light brown gold SRM of 9
Cinnamon. Malts. Sugar. Caramel. It’s very weak on the nose.
Very wheaty. Grassy and bland. Whatever really. There’s some nuttiness like almonds on the finish
50/50 carb. Light body. Bitter roasted finish

With a slight floral aroma and after-taste, this beer is great for mass consumption. The reason I could drink so much of this is that the flavors are subtle, offering a very light, enjoyable beer.

Bottle. Similar to the IPA, but more subdued aroma and flavor. Caramel and hops, with a hint of floral. Floral finish. Would consider buying only if the IPA weren’t available.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, the color of apple juice with a fluffly white head. Smells of apple juice; fruity on the tongue, light hoppiness.

Reviewed from notes.
Served in a tulip glass. Pours a golden amber color. White head without too much lacing but a decent amount of retention time. The nose is some light malt with a bit of caramel and bread. There are some light citrus and floral hops there as well. Taste is a bit bland with some bready malt, faint hops, and a bit of yeast. Decent body and carbonation. Nothing wrong with this beer, but a bit bland and I know that they can do better.

This is my favorite easy access amber ale, very smooth drinkablilty, very likable profile, getting a little harder to find unfortunately
