Bottle pour. Great mix of amber and hoppy IPA style. Nice citrus with a toasty malt background. Good amount of citrus, floral, without too bitter. Honey, biscuit, toasty malts. Gorgeous color. Perfect early spring beer, just enough hops, but not huge IBU’s. Nice work troegs.

Uploading old ratings that were missing comments. Big hoppy nose. Strong malt backbone balances it out. A notch below Nugget Nectar and Perpetual but very good.

Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a mostly transparent amber with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes sweet and hoppy with notes of caramel. Good on the palate. A good example of the style.

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear dark amber with a little white head. Aroma of hops (mostly) and malts. Taste, this beer is a great combination of malts sweetness and bitter hoppiness; along the lines of an IPA but that is not a bad thing, awesome taste dry finish lovely beer that is quite easy to enjoy.

355ml bottle. Seems all the ambers Iam getting lately are hopped like an APA or IPA, almost. Not that this is such a bad thing. Of the bunch, Troegs managed to pull off probably the best balance between the hop bitterness and amber caramel malt of the hoppy ambers I’ve tried so far. Nothing experiment or envelope pushing, but tasty and damn drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy, amber-orange with a short tan head.
Scent is floral/grassy hop.
Taste is caramel malt, citrus, florals....
Smooth mix of sweet and bitter.
Very solid, though closer to a mild IPA than an Amber.
