better in a plastic cup than the typical dish soap glasses they serve, its bright and hoppy with some pine and floral aromas and hints of dough.

A big beer (high alcohol) but a little to sweet for my liking. I would compare this close to alaka amber ale. I thought the choice of an all hersbrucker hopped amber was a little unusual. Is this an american amber ale or a german alt-type beer ? It misses on both fronts.

I was very impressed by this beer. Very good balance, malty and hoppy. A very good example of the style. I think this is an excellent gateway beer for the Budmilloors crowd.

Interesting at first, but flavor quickly fades. Strange biscuity alcohol flavor - which isnt so bad - I kind of enjoyed it. Tasted like a bitter red ale. Apple aroma.
