Nose is toffee, red berry, with light pine and citrus. Taste is pine, malt, red berry, slight rye then floral and peppery tones touch of lemon grass and salt in the finish. It’s more ESB than I finished, and the nose and taste don’t marry well for me. It’s OK

Has a really nice malty taste to it. Almost an iced tea flavor. Easy to drink, and very little hops. Bready, bright, crisp without being boring. Very nice Amber ale, When you want malt go here.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle a surprisingly colorful pale copper, lots of orange hues with bright golds and rosy reds. Aroma is citrusy and piney, a touch of malt. Flavour is of caramel and malt, but well balanced by the hops. Aftertaste is quite malty as well, which lingers a bit. Overall a decent amber, however not that memorable.
