Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours copper/amber with a slight off-white head. Aroma is mild citrus/floral. Med body. Flavor is cooked caramel, spicy hop, citrus and floral hop. The cooked aspect doesn’t appeal. That’s two beers tonight I’ve had that as an issue with. Maybe I am just needing more hops than some brewers choose to use. I agree this is hoppy for an amber, and as a very little bitter builds the ale becomes more agreeable.

Clean yeast wise. Flavors are malty, grassy, medium bitter. Caramel, lightly nutty, floral. Pretty clean. Straight forward, clean and good. A pretty decent amber ale (as far as those go).

On cask w/ ginger root at brewery tap room. Nice aroma of caramel hops and floral hops. I can’t really sniff the ginger. The mouthfeel is creamy and light as you would expect from a cask. Flavor is a nice rounded blend of malts and hops with out being too bitter. The ginger gives it a little bite in the finish that is very welcome.
