Bottled. Amber colour, big off-white head. Aroma is earthy, some floral notes, mild toffee and some grassy notes. Flavour is grassy, floral and some earthy notes. Surprisingly dry flavour for an amber ale. Still pretty much has got "old beer" feeling over it. (Bottled 04/10/14).

mcberko (14979) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 18, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a dark amber / brown with a small beige head. Aroma brings out dry earthy malts, some slight caramel undertones, and a considerable hop profile. Flavour is very well-balanced, with tons of dry earthy, bready malts, and a great hop punch without being too overbearing. Highly drinkable and sessionable. Finishes dry and earthy. Great stuff.
