Pours a nice amber colour with nice white bubbly head leaving an awesome sticky white lace. Mainly caramel and accompanying grains make up the aroma. Carbonation is quite apparent with flavours of sweet caramel maltiness, a certain dryness with light hop bitterness to finish it off. Better than I remember it. Would make a good session beer.

Amber colour with an off white head. Caramel and a bit grassy aroma. Medium to light body. A bit over to the sweet side and light bitter. Light texture. Sweet caramel are dominating the flavour. Also some grassy notes. Very flat.

330 ml bottle from The Beer Store. Pours a clear amber with modest-sized whiteish head. Aroma is sweet caramel and grains. Flavour is also dominated by sweet caramel with some graininess and a light bitterness in finish. Nothing special but pleasant.

Drinkable. Quite plain. I’ve found amber ales can be all over the place, this one is mellow compared to many. A little hop balance in the background, overall it’s fine, no more no less.

such a good brew. mmmmbeer introduced me to this, and i'm thankful. local pub serves on tap, which i had today, and it was a treat. poured with a decent head, that left good lacing on glass. right now drinking out of bottle and reviewing. aroma boasts sweet malts, and light flowery scent. refreshing. taste is fresh with the malts again showing good presence. colour is clear, light copper. all around good beer.
