COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full-bodied amber ale with a rich, smooth flavor, just the right balance of hops and notes of caramel and toffee.

Pours a deep amber color with a big, creamy beige head. The aroma is largely like a sweet wheat bread, with a little grassy bitterness to balance. The flavor is likewise very sweetly bready, with some light caramel and herbal hops adding some depth. The medium-light body feels resinous and somewhat astringent, adding some presence to hold up the reasonably balanced flavor profile. Overall, this beer is a nice amber, but being a nice amber will only go so far.

Aroma of roasted maple. Taste is smoked and toasted dark malt with a touch of raspberry. The malt sweetness is quickly offset by peppery hops, resulting in a clean crisp finish.
