very spicy hopping, medium bodied, dry finish. malt is in the background. more hoppy than most ambers - almost like they spilled just a little IPA in the batch... a rich beer that’s still quite refreshing. summertime favorite - quite good.

Nice amber color, but not a see through beer. Nice aroma, goes down smooth. Not something I’d go out of my way for, but a nice beer to drink when it’s around.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light color with just a tint of redish, malty followed by a healthy bunch of hops. A little "off", very hard to put your finger on it kind of taste. Not really sour, but just a touch bitter and odd after taste. Reasonable but left with a question mark at the end.

A relatively weak aroma (though this may have been a function of the place I was in) which was slightly sweet. Reddish-copper in color with a quickly disappearing head of off-white foam. The flavor is un-complex and rather straightforward. Certainly not bad, but not my favorite

Bottle. Pours mid amber with a little white head. Nose is faint caramel malt and hop note. Taste is the same, bread and caramel malt and a light bitter hop note. Dry finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A great amber ale. A decent sized, foamy head. A tad too much bitterness in the aftertaste, detracting from the overall score. Crisp and dry, yet not overdone.
