What the brewer says

“The fos­sil record proves one thing— that beer alone is re­spon­si­ble for the evo­lu­tion­ary leap from ape to man. This malty am­ber is our trib­ute to Charles Dar­win, evo­lu­tion, and per­fec­tion.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Bis­cu­ity malt, medium citrusy and wild­flower hops, caramel, and light berry or stone-fruit es­ters. Bready with some bis­cuit or gra­ham cracker notes, slight toast. Hints of dark fruit and some earth­i­ness.” Fla­vor: “The good news—this is a light, fla­vor­ful, bal­anced beer with notes of toasted bread and earthy hops, lively carbonation, and a nice lin­ger­ing bis­cuit malt fla­vor. It’s heav­ier on the malt side, but the dry fin­ish en­sures that it’s not too sweet or heavy. The bad news is that it is some­what grainy. The astin­gency is mild, but de­spite look­ing crys­tal clear (pun in­tended), my mouth feels like I should pick out some husk.” Over­all: “A well-bal­anced am­ber ale, per­fect for sum­mer days and work lunches. It’s dry and light but still has some nice malt com­plex­ity with just a hint of hop­pi­ness. Good ses­sion beer with enough fla­vor to sat­isfy.”
