Only my second contribution to the DB here. I am on my second large batch of this Amber ale. Much lighter than shown here as Victory wasn't an option,. The beer has a fantastic red hue.
I'll try to get a pic tommorow if i think of it.

Very easy drinking without a harsh roast profile. Big on Hop aroma, but a nice blend of malt and hops in the flavour. I have it on tap next to the Evil Twin atm and i slightly prefer this one as having more hop aroma and still being a smooth beer.
