August Amber

The nose is somewhere between caramel and toffee; sweet but not so roasted as to get that more complex burnt quality.

The flavors follow this, I’m pleased to say, but there’s also an interesting dryness to the finish. It’s not exactly bitter-I don’t think the hops involved really push that note. But it isn’t a white wine thing, either.

It does cleanse the palate off nicely enough though, and encourage another sip. So that’s pretty good, at least by me!
