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.

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