Bottled last week of January
Pours amber with an etched mirror surface and excellent clarity. Smells richly of malts, toffee, caramel and hints of tea. Herbal hops are subtle and pleasant. Flavor follows through with an herbal, sweet malt profile. Hints of tea and toffee - nice flavor for an amber, one of the better I’ve had. medium bodied with average carb on the style. Really a great amber ale.

@World Market Columbus Freash hop aroma, clear dark copper with a 1" rocky head, a mess of lace. Taste is sweet caramel malt with ripe cut grass and mild, but still dominant, floral hops. Somehow, the whole package is only average for me, even though each separate element is well done. Perhaps the elements don’t quite complement each other. It is big, and it is filling. Good, not great.

This is one of the better amber ales I’ve had. Copper colored, sweet, and thick on the tongue. Grassy hops.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Creamy coconut milk on the nose accompanied by subtle hops. Deep ruby/amber with a fast dissipating foam. Strong earthy hop notes greet the palate. Crisp flavors of malted caramel, sweet sugar, thin molasses and apple cider. Overall, I’m not a big fan of amber ales but this is pretty impressive. There is a really nice apple cider overtone. A- rating.

Bottle. Pours very slightly hazy copper brown with airy but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, fruit, and caramel, with subtle hoppy notes. Sweetish taste of caramel malt and fruit, enriched by regular hoppy notes. Mildly bitter and grassy finish. A really nice Amber Ale.
