Gorgeously clear medium amber color with a dense finger high foam of cream colored lsuhness. Lots of lacing in tiny spotted sheetings and some threads.

Aroma is a wonderful display of dryish hoppyness thats grassy, smurfing in on some herbal qualities and floral notes. Perfect background of dry caramel malt and cereal grains.

Flavors are just as nice and quite lengthy with lots of balancing fun flavors! Super finely crafted with great aspects to dryish hoppyness that splits between floral grassyness and herbal bitterness with a touch of oily resin and toasted orangey fruityness. Great backbone of dry caramel malt, some sweet burnt butter and toasty edgings to its rounded finish as it has a complexing hoppy finish of dry grassy, herbal, bittering spice, and uniquely grained toasty parts. Nice!

Body is easily medium with a simple alluring carbonation that sits back enough to let in an easy softness within its drier tones and bittering hoppy elements.

So glad to see a well-balanced Amber like this dawn the shelves here in MN, and by Magic Hat no less? Hope it sticks around as this will be consumed quickly upon purchase.

Pours a nice dark amber color with a 1/4 head that dissipates quickly.

Smell is something like dark roasted malts, decent.

Good taste, roasted malts and decent hop presence.

Good carbonation, smooth beer like the hops for an amber.

Good session beer, especially with the hop taste. Nice seasonal.
