It’s a fierce canine, hiding a bite...

Lord knows I love an amber ale. This one tended to the darker side becoming almost tawny in appearance with a minimal head from gas pourage. Would I wouldn’t give to have had this a bit warmer on handpull. The smell of this beer was fairly restrained, given the serving temperature, but discernible was spruce and resin, chipped redwood and peachy tart. Those flavours were abundant too in a fullish sort of body with tingly mouthfeel. The bitterness wasn’t overwhelming but was definitely there giving the impression of a silky, elegant but chewable beer. Lovely. Just lovely.

Pours a lovely dark amber with a generous head. Nicely balanced imp red with a bit of spice and heat on the palate.

A reasonably Light Amber Ale, mid-range cloudiness giving the impression of fullness which is always appealing. Taste wise was a little bit of a let-down compared to the look of the beer. I thought it would be a little bit more of a mouthful, but still a very nice ale. Quite dry with the bitterness aftertaste not lasting too long, but with s good smell through the nose once swallowed.
The head resided quite quickly so not too gaseous.
