On-tap at MacKenzie's: Dark cloudy golden amber with more gold at the bottom. Small bubbly cap of creamy colored foam sits atop. Maintains a good skim and collar and when swirled the head flows back up to a respectable level so it seemingly has good carbonation. Lacing in adequate amounts of webby strings.

Aroma is firm, steady, crispened, and present of sour dough bagels and roasty nuttyness. Very bready on the nose.

Taste is also pretty bready; and thickly so. Nice sour dough bagel creamy breadyness with some nice evenly handeled roasted nuttyness towards the finish and some buttery notes mixed with warm whole grain toast spread with an orange/apricot marmalade. Solid taster for an amber, more so then most I've encountered with a Vienna style twist of heavy breads. Nice.

Fantastic full bodied finish, creamy, full, and eager with incredibly fine breadyness thats very well rounded and creamy with just the right amount of give in the carbonation.

This is one of the better Ambers I've had in quite awhile. I actually stay away from this style on most occasions due to its basic flavor profile and character that's seemingly copied at every brewpub or wannabe brewery. A good change of pace for the style; and I for sure as hell was glad to have tried it. Very good on-tap.

A: Super hazy uncouth dirty bronzeish color with a lot of sediment in it. Head is medium sized, just a tad off white.

S: Cascade hops, little bit of pine, little bit of grapefruit with a doughy bite. This is an amber ale, right?

T: Tastes a lot like it smells but without a lot of depth. Begins with the trademark cascade taste at the front of the tongue with a wash of soapiness following up. A healthy dough flavor with aspects of caramel and muffins centers in on the middle of the tongue and comes into its own once the cascade falls off. Alcohol flavors actually flirt with the tip of the tongue, which surprises me for how low this beer is. Finishes sort of grainy with small nips of honey.

M: Medum body with a really smooth mouthfeel.

D: Not bad actually. I usually shy away from ambers, but this one sort of breaks the rules. Attractive beer with great good mouthfeel.

Review written from notes from a couple weeks ago.

A - Highly hazed (obviously unfiltered) orange/apricot colored body. Small tan head sits atop. Sticky lacing.

S - Sweet and fruity. Orange juice and strawberry with light caramel.

T - Super sweet and fruity. Mixed berries, strawberry and huge flavor of frozen orange juice. Slight hop bitterness, then back to more of the sweetness. Can't say how much I get frozen OJ here.

M - Medium bodied with slightly prickly carbonation, but not so prickly that it gets in the way of enjoyment.

D - Very different amber that is super sweet. I would guess that after a couple pints, the sweetness would be cloying, but it was pretty nice in the heat of the day when I had it.
