From bottle at home. Pours light amber with one finger of off-white head. Pretty standard stuff, drinks well. Light caramel flavors balanced exactly with offsetting refreshing hops. This is a great go-to option (do to ubiquitousness) at establishments with a limited selection.

Geruch schwach, aber angenehm malzig. Im Geschmack süßlich und vollmundig, ein wenig karamellartig. Wenig Hopfen.

haven’t drank this much; but can’t believe I haven’t rated one of the original craft brews. I like Ambers esp. when they aren’t over hopped - this was malty with slight hops that made it well balanced; need to try side by side with Alaskan Amber. good summer brew.

For some reason I've been drinking more beer... Probably because it's summer but this beer is a wonderful brew easy drinking for a wonderful summer day.

15cl sample from bottle at the Leuven Innovation Beer Festival (25 V 2015). Almost brown amber ale with strong malt and grain aroma. A plain, good drinker. Note to myself: try this again - the beer notes were on the brink of getting nonsensical.

355 ml. can from Systembolaget. Clear amber colour with a golden tint. Thin, off-white head. Sweet aroma with caramel malts, light yeasts and spices, bread and biscuits. Taste is light sweet. Medium body with a slick feel and a soft carbonation. Finishes drying and fruity with caramel malts, toasted notes and bread. Okay, rather much in the middle of the road Amber.
