Pours lite with little head. Pretty dry and hoppy with a touch of malt that gets through. Great overall beer....

Not really to style. Not sweet enough. Much more an American pale or an IPA, I’d say. Enjoyable beer nonetheless, it’s just that the amber malt can’t cut through that much hop.

Deep gold nice with a off white creamy
head that clings to the glass as you drink.
great floral hop aroma and flavor that doesn’t overpower the maltiness of this brew.This beer seemed bigger in ABV then it appears to be.Great stuff!

Bottle. A nice amber color pour with a thin white lace head. Hoppy armoma with a nice little bite to it. Interesting finish, not as dry and I would have expected it with the smell.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A nice amber-gold, starts off with a nice hop flavor and finishes with subtle malt. An interseting malt flavor i might add. Definitly for the hopheads out there.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A nice golden amber coloring with an aroma that is definately floral. This beer has a taste that is very smooth but also offers some bitter hopness. A very good beer that I definately recommend trying.

Pours a great amber color with a long lasting head. Aroma is good but nothing special. Wow!!much better than expected. Nice malty, caramel flavor turns into a nicely hopped finish. Supreme balance of malt and hops in this one. Perfect carbonation. Best Amber ale I’ve ever had

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle; It pours a medium amber w/ a lasting, medium sized off white head of smaller bubbles. Aroma is a wonderful floral and lemon citrusy hop at first, then it gets some hints of orange before it warms up. Also some hints of perfumey, piney, hairspray alcohol, but it’s strange given the lower ABV. Some lightly toasted malts, hints of caramel, and low fruitiness. Very well balanced w/a distinct caramel flavor up front, then becomes lightly citrusy hoppy after. Toasty malt comes in third w/ the dry finish and floral hop flavored aftertaste. Dry m/f, but not astringent, lower carb., & lighter medium body. Overall a very enjoyable beer for an amber ale. Very pleasant hop characteristics balanced by a caramel malt flavor. Very yummy!
