Tryin’ the Rampant Lion

Arcadia Ales’ Amber Ale is a good unfiltered ale.  Very effervescent, orange with a big fluffy head.  I poured about 1″ and got 7″ of foam.  It retains a good 2″ head after all said and done.  It has a nice, sharp, citrusy bouquet, as well as a clean, not overpowering floral note, like freshly mown hay, but not in a abad way.  Make sense?  It’s also lively on the tongue, but not as much as you might expect from the results of the initial pour.  There’s a good balance of malt and hops, but the hoppy dryness lingers longer.  Good Stuff, and a lot of good stuff seems to be coming out of Michigan recently.
