Brewery: Okanagan Spring Brewery, Vernon, BC
Style: Amber Ale
Translucent copper-amber colour with a finger of off-white foam that recedes to a thin cap. Aroma and flavour both strike a good balance of caramel malt - and perhaps some crystal as well? - and herbal, grassy hops. Finish has a slight metallic hint that is off-putting at first, but actually meshes well with the herbal and lemony hops that linger for a while at the back of the palate. A bit safer than most of the American craft ambers it seems keen to emulate, but a nice brew nonetheless.
