  • Pours clear into my snifter with about an inch of slightly off-white, meringue foam. Retention is average at least. Lacing is sheeting but thin.

    Aroma has lots of malt: caramel for sweetness with toasted and biscuit scents. There is some fruitiness going on but I don't get much on the hops.

    Taste is malt forward. Once again caramel, toasted, and biscuit make you want to pull out a fork and add some gravy. There is a pleasant fruitness. Toast and fruit seem to last for a while in the mouth.

    Medium body with a heavy end of light carbonation.

    Why are ambers so damn monotonous? Nothing really wrong with this beer but nothing stands out and makes it any better. I actually thought this beer might be some type of Belgian based on the name. Enjoy!
