fairly aggressive pour yielded a respectable 1 1/2" head that quickly fell to a wispy film that sticks to the sides of the glass. Some sediment in the bottle and glass. Faint sweet aroma, balanced hop scent. Good balance in flavor between the initial sweetness and the floral bitter finish. Most ambers have little hop finish, this one is very nice.

Tap at Brouwers. Dark amber color with a nice head. Aroma is dark toast. Flavor is dark and toasty with nutty aspects with a pleasant mild NW hop finish. A better than average amber ale and highly drinkable.

Bottle: Copper color, light white head and lacing. Nose of caramel and cream, some light earthy hops. The flavor is malty, decent body with a blah flavor. Nutty and caramelly but nothing to really snap or round out the end. Finishes clean. Ok.

Pours a reddish amber with medium tan head. Subtle floral hops on the nose. Drinks surprisingly smooth with a hoppy finish. Not bad. Not bad at all.
