Hazy dark amber with a thin rocky light beige head. Bland toast and slightly nutty aroma. The flavor is a bit light at first but it ends with a smack of toast and caramelized pale ale grains. And maybe a touch of oatmeal, I think.The start has a thorough leafy bitterness with a slight, slight acidity before the toast and light caramel and amber grains kick in.

Great overall Amber. You smell hoppy and complex and then tastes like an amber. Hits all over the palate. Great beer for an amber!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy semi-dark red color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. The lacing was somewhat w there in a speckled messy sort of way.
The smell had some toasted caramel malts and a light toffee backed up by a light nuttiness.
The taste was basically the same.
On the palate, this was about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. Carbonation finishes somewhat crisp yet smooth.
Overall, for the most part, this was a decent Amber/Red ale.

can. pours hazy bright golden-orange with a small off-white cap, some retention and lacing. subtle flowery citrusy, crackery lightly toasted maltiness, fruitiness - peaches and oranges, spicy oranges, but also fairly present peppery-earthy ntoes, something woodsy-vanilla-esque if not almost a young brett, few herbal-grassy notes. moderate carbonation, light body, dry crisp grassy-peppery finish. a rare much enjoyed amber.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From the 650 ml. bottle. The pour is mahogany amber with a quick lasting off-white head. The aroma is not very vibrant but I do pick up roasted caramel malts. The body is light to medium. The taste has a good sweet malty character with little to no bitterness at the end. It’s an amber and nothing out of this world.

Draft at Jack Rose. To break up the high abv beers that we’d been drinking, we got the Amber. The beer was standard to style, but still impressive. Refreshing, nicely balanced - not overly malted and no stale hop flavors. Light, creamy body. Quite refreshing.
