Amber ale with a caramelly accent. I have to say, after Double Bag, I really don’t want these guys to shoot for ’smooth’.

I though this was pretty solid. Had some on draught in Vermont. Poured a lovely, light amber-brown with a fine head. Aroma of sweet malts. Flavor was rich with a nice malty character and notes of caramel and minor hop presence. Very smooth, clean finish. Would make a great beer to session.

Deep amber pour. The nose is quite light - softly malty with a fairly clean light sort of caramel. A little bit of soft earthy hoppiness but this is also quite malt accented. Bready with a kiss of toffee through the middle. It’s actually quite well-balanced though. Despite the malt flavour - it drinks a little bit thin.

12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market, Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear reddish brown color with a medium tan head. Decent head retention and lacing. Malty aroma with caramel, chocolate, faint nutty notes, spices and leafy hops. The taste is faint malty notes and leafy hops, some nuts, grain and very faint chocolate. Thin bodied. Fairly average beer.

Pleasant caramel and roasted malt…Elegant flowers and spices…A bit too quiet though…
