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

On tap at Shiki Sushi. Pours clear reddish copper with a pillowy white head. Aroma is mild pine hops. Taste is similar, piney hops with a caramel malt backing. Body is about average, slightly creamy texture. Overall a decent amber ale. Not my favorite style but a solid enough offering.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber beer with a thin foamy off-white head. Rather strange nose of menthol, soap, perfume, and funk. Flavor is better with a nice malty caramel sweetness up front followed by a medium bitterness of spruce, pine, and resin. Rather thick on the palate, this is an unusual beer that grows on you.
