Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: The body has a beautiful deep amber color with good clarity. Its head builds up to a nice white 2 inch collar of foam. This head slowly fades but keeps a small covering to the end and on the way down the glass it leaves some spotty slick lace. Smell: It has a light aroma with a mild bready and caramel sweetness. Hop notes are very faint and distant. Taste/Palate: On the tongue I get a bready and caramel character with a touch of fruity sweetness and some raw grain towards the finish. A slight floral and earthy hop presence gives it a snappy balanced finish. With its medium body and balanced carbonation it is an easy drinker. Notes: Overall its nice average Amber Ale with great drinkability.

Pale copper with small head and ok lacing. Lemon herbal smell with malt sweetness. Some semi sweet malt up front lemon then herbs finish with some bitterness and an astringency I don't like. Enticing but ultimately fails for me because of astringency and lemon pledge taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
