  • Pours clear with enormous amounts of thick, tan foam on top. Effervescent might be an under statement. Retention is above average with the foam thickening even more. No real lacing in spite of the thickness of the foam.

    Aroma is malt forward. Toffee, toasted, and caramel all have their place. Sweet. Hops seems to be a bit of things: citrus, floral, and slight spice(?). Cherries strangely find the nose.

    Taste comes across sweet as could be expected from the nose. Too sweet but the a hint of sour comes across along with some citrus hops for a touch of balance. The sour carries the cherries mentioned in the aroma.

    A thick beer for an amber, towards the creamy side. Carbonation is mild to medium, depends on the sip. Sugars coat some.

    There are some aspects to this beer that are really nice and then there are some on the opposite side of the spectrum. The sweetness and sour are both something that I can't remember in an amber or at least to the degree they are here. The aroma is nice and complex. Enjoy!
