So I wanted a beer and it's Fathers Day. We've had a nice weekend. At the store I decided to get an amber ale since that's my dad's favorite style and he's learned to feel trepidation at some beers I enjoy. This is Northern Hawk Owl amber ale from Traverse City, MI.
I poured us each a little glass. Medium-brown amber, fluffy tan head that sank into a ring. Very light smell, a little like sweet bread dough. And the taste - first sip was caramel. And stayed consistently caramel throughout. I asked my dad what he thought.
