Review: Jumping Cow Amber Ale

Jumping Cow Amber Ale from Steinhaus Brewing Co.
Rating: B-

Purchased at a Trader Joe's in Massachusetts.

Appearance: Quite orange in color and clear. Thin head, with little retention and lacing.

Smell: Malty with caramel and bready notes, but little hops.

Taste: Some spicy hops, and a slightly boozy finish to accompany those caramel malts.

Mouthfeel: Light/medium body, somewhat slick, with moderate carbonation.

Drinkability: Not bad, and potentially sessionable, but disappointing on the whole.
