3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a dark orange with amber hues and a large off white head that leaves quite a bit of stixky lacing. Nice mix of malt and hop in the aroma. Picking up caramel, wheat, dough, and earthy hops in the nose. Taste is also an excellent balance of hops and malts. Getting caramel, light citrus, floral, wheat, white bread, and pine. Very crisp and refreshing. Long slightly bitter finish of caramel malts and light citrus. Medium bodied, surprisingly somewhat thick texture, lively carbonation. Very, very nice beer. Not really a "session" beer as it is over 5%, but it’s certainly a beer I could drink several of in a sitting. Very easy drinker.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
