I poured it from the bottle into a pint glass. It pours amber with a tan head and lacing. The aroma is pine and dried fruit. The taste is strong on hops and dried fruit with some biscuit and malt. There’s nice carbonation balanced with some smoothness. This is one of the best ambers I’ve had.

Petty good for an Amber ale. Lot’s of floral hop aroma. Flavor is not bad, though a bit mild for my usual taste preferences. Finish is bitter, but overall it’s a fairly well balanced ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A clear, dark golden to amber colored beer topped by a small, dense, off-white head. The aroma is lightly bready, with caramel malts, perfumed candy and some pine cones and grass. It’s medium to full-bodied, with a soft carbonation. Rather dry. Less bread and caramel in the flavor, a decent bitterness showing up and there’s also a piney, grassy touch and some candy hints. Mostly bitter finish. A rather boring one, but at least it drinks easy. 150625

I very much enjoyed this amber ale, one of my favorites of the style, so far. Aroma was nice, perhaps reflecting it being "hopback"
