Pours a caramel color with a hops aroma. Taste is mild hoppiness with a small amount of sweetness. Malt flavor throughout, with a good lingering malt flavor on the palate. A Decent amber ale that was complex as a red.

On tap.Aroma was of caramel and roasted malt. Not a bad amber ale at all. Had a great toasty nut and raisin taste with a proper balancing of hops. It was a easy drinking medium bodied ale. Not big on amber ale, but this one is okay by me.

On draft at Heartland Union Square. This had a yeasty amber/lager taste. Mediocre. Heartland likes to run advertisements with photos of their smiling brewers showing off their beers, but this one is nothing to be so proud of.

Mörkbrun med litet skum! Inte mycket doft men i smaken finns det mycket caramelsmak och humle!

I wish I knew what happened with this one... It was a decent amber ale with slight malty notes. I was too put off by the alcohol flavor in my drink though! It covered any enjoyable maltiness that might otherwise have made this an enjoyable beer.
