I just have to say that, although it is a perfect amber colour, this ale has no head, nothing at all no matter whether poured straight or at an angle. There wasn't even a rapidly disappearing head, it's just not there at all, there are only a few bubbles around the edges. It's slightly disappointing in appearance for an amber ale, but we all know that appearances can be deceptive, so let's see what it smells and tastes like.
I was very impressed by the smell and taste; it is very malty and has a smooth and fruity taste like a thick butterly slice of malt loaf. It's actually a very nice taste and it's a real shame that there's no head (did I mention that). It is quite fizzy but smooth, you can see from the picture that there isn't much carbonation but the bubbles appear from nowhere as they burst on your tongue. It's tastes very crisp and refreshing, with a clear spring water aftertaste. Half way down the glass, the head magically appeared, but it was too little too late I think.
