Pours a hazy amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes slowly. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, caramel and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of sweet caramel malt, grassy hops and fruit. The finish is sweet with an earthy malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

Can sent to me as an extra from drfabulous. Brownish-amber pour with a moderate head but very little retention. The aroma shows plenty of toasted malt, that mixes with caramel, nuts, and light floral notes. Easy drinking, simple, and smooth. The flavor offers no surprises: toasted biscuity malt, almond, some fruitiness, and caramel. The carbonation is a shade high it seems. Light hop bitterness is noted on the back end providing nice balance. Not lacking but still kind of boring and limited (it is an Amber Ale, after all). Still, pretty well executed overall.

12oz can. Looks amber. Aroma of pale and lightly toasted malts plus light floral hops. Flavor the same. Average texture. Not bad for the style, but still an amber ale, that came from Lexington KY.

Can to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a semi-transparent brownish orange with head somewhere between off-white and light beige that dissipates into thin lacing pretty quickly. Smells malty and a bit hoppy with notes of caramel. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. A solid beer.
