This is a clean and refreshing amber ale, brewed with an international mélange of hops—Aurora and Styrian Golding from Slovenia, Citra from Oregon and Nelson Sauvin from New Zealand—that lends a pleasant bitterness to the otherwise malt-driven profile. The nose offers soft scents of caramel malt, tropical fruit and brown bread, while the palate boasts medium-intense flavors of honeyed orange, citrus zest and brown bread. A tinge of hop astringency unfolds on the clean, dry close. Athenee Importers.
