This Amber Ale has a sweet, rich caramel aroma supported by a lightly grainy and dusty malt undertone. True to style, it features a  clear, amber color with a low, off-white head that dissipates after only a few moments. This beer's flavor contains caramel and toasted malts, cherry and red apple. Hop flavor is absent aside from a light grassiness. It is moderately bitter and finishes evenly but is under-carbonated. Hoppier versions of Amber Ales are the norm, but this example is notable for its interesting ester profile.
