Has a soft ale smell to it. Ugly brownish color. The head was about a half inch and was an off white color. Had kind of a fruity IPA taste. A decent beer.

Little malty for my liking but for an amber ale.... this one is enjoyable. Taste of malt and hop. Good looking brew with a caramel / amber color and a wonderful forming head. Good brew. Not great brew.

From notes: Poured clear golden amber with a 3-finger off-white head. Mild, resiny hop aroma with a touch of caramel malt. Medium body, a touch oily. Light citrus hops flavor, a touch resiny, with some caramel at the back.

Mmm, a pretty tasty amber! It pours copper w/ a small white head that leaves significant lacing. The aroma is dominated by sweet malt w/ a tiny hop undertone. The taste is well balanced and quite drinkable. The malt flavor hits up front, followed by some nice bitterness, and ultimately ends clean. Pretty good stuff!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to Keef for this as an extra!
Poured to NB globe.
A: Burnt orange ale with little head development. Thin, translucent film of yellowed white foam. No evidence of carbonation. Spotty lacing.
S: Malty, woody backbone with earthy hops in there. The nose is non-intrusive, good for an amber.
T: Good caramel malts meld into this beer allowing for a heavier amber flavor. I really like this, but feel like it’s a one at a time beer. Premium for the beer. Sweet and malty.
M: Sweet, creamy mouthfeel. Exceptional. Leaves the mouth slightly dry. Medium-heavy body with lower carbonation. Good.
D: As stated above, this beer is too much to drink too many. Just too heavy for sessionability.

Bottle. Courtesy of Falco242 on his trip East. Nondescript aroma. Clear dark amber with a lasting but thin light tan head. Malt first but moderate hop in the finish. Nice flavor but feeling its a bit overrated.
