Pours a bronze color. Smell is of hops and citrus. Taste is more malty than the smell, some hops, well balanced. Overall a good quality beer.

This beer pours a clear amber with a large, frothy head. It has a rich hops aroma and the it has a heavy alcohol aroma as well. Itís a bit more bitter than I was hoping and is very reminiscent of an IPA. It has a pretty light body. Itís not bad but I wish I didnít have to buy a six-pack to try it.

it pours a rich amber color. The hops are evident the second itís poured. At first, there is a high citrus note but that goes away as the hops kick in. It doesnít have the most bite of any beer Iíve had, but the bite is there for sure! Surprisingly low ABV at 4.4.
Great color, great flavor, aggressive but not overwhelming bite, very good lacing.

Wonderful aroma and solid flavor that isnít too heavy-handed. Good session beer. Also, one of the best-looking bottles, in my opinion.

330ml bottle from ōlhandleriet. Tiny white head. Clear, but slightly cloudy amber body. Aroma of light hops, citrus, yeast and butter. Quite sweet on the tongue, bitter long lasting taste.

Great session beer, but more like an English best bitter, but with US hop character than an American Amber ale. Meh, definitions, itís still a tasty beer and great for a session.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured an amber color with a medium head. mild citrus hop aroma with heavy malt presence. When I first tasted this I couldnít believe it only had 4.4% alcohol. This is very well balanced and very flavorfull for that type of alcohol content. a mild hoppy flavor with a big rich malt flavor and some caramel notes. Thanks DarkElf!
