3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The pour was a medium brown with a yellow hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) frothy off white head that diminished to a thin layer of residue and lasted throughout creating some really good spotty sticky lacing.
The aroma was of mild bread and grain malts, an herbal hop and a sweet earthy yeast with notes of toffee and caramel.
The taste was lightly sweet and malty with just a mild hint of toffee at first and then got a little hop bite with a nice caramel note at the end. The flavor lasted a decent amount of time with a slight hoppiness left at the finish.
Mouthfeel was just a bit above light in body with the texture being a bit watery and a tad dry with a lively carbonation.
Overall a nice tasty Amber ale with a nice mild hoppiness to it. But it seems that everything I try from this brewer is quite tasty.

Poured from 12 oz bottle a crystal clear amber, forming a fine off white head. Aroma that of a restrained flowery hop character and a touch of caramel malt. Not much after that. Flavour waffles of floral hops, carmel malt, just a hint of sweetness. Blah....
