Lake Winnipesaukee is the largest of New Hampshire’s 944 lakes, boasting 288 miles of shoreline. A clean amber ale with a subtle but noticeable hop character. Best if poured slowly into a glass, leaving the natural yeast sediment. Cheers!

12 ounce can from a random gas station. Hazy dark amber, large foamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of grainy malt and caramel. The taste is toffee, caramel, grain. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Where is this noticeable hop character they speak of?

Yep, that’s an amber ale color. I’m in for it. Very little white head. Thin taste that leads to a really awful lingering aftertaste. Smells like something I shouldn’t have even considered drinking.

This is a bomber, dark reddish brown, small head faded very fast. has a graham cracker and maple aroma with bread yeast, dough and malts. Very thin mouthfeel. nothing popping out here. It’s an amber ale, alright!

Thanks Nate. On tap, looks like a darker beer like a yuengling. Taste is somewhat bitter but now as sharp or bitter as the other 603 beers. But no fooling this does have lots of sharp astringent bitter bite in it.

On tap at The Coach Stop, Londonderry NH. Aroma is lightly toasted/bready malts. Appearance is clear, medium brown with small head and minimal lacing. Taste is light to medium sweet. Palate is medium bodied with medium texture, average carbonation. As you can tell from the number of "mediums" in the comments, overall this is a drinkable, fairly average beer.

Poured from can into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours nice deep reddish amber color with a two finger head of white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, fading over time to leave a light level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma was a sweet mix of caramel and a little bit of fruit. Along with these aromas came some smells of a bready smell as well as a little bit of light pine hop Taste – The taste begins a rather sweet and bready taste with the sweet being mainly of a caramel nature, but containing some tropical fruit flavors as well. These sweet flavors remain quite potent throughout, but are joined by some rather light pine and earthy hops. In the end, a smooth and sweet, but pleasant flavor is left to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average to slightly chewier side with a carbonation level that is on the slightly lower side. For the style and the sweeter flavors the slightly thicker body and lower carbonation helped bring out the lighter hop flavors which nicely balanced out the sweeter flavors well. Overall- A rather sweeter and tastier amber that all the while maintained a great drinkability. This was a rather nice brew.

halfonit (1258) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Pours a slightly hazy deep amber/brown color with a thick off white head. Aroma is of malts, caramel, soap, yeast, and some brown sugar. Lighter palate. Flavors include malts, dark caramel, a little dark fruit, figs, and a little roastyness. Leaves a slightly fruity malted finish. Ehh. Nothing special.

Draft sample @ the brewery. Darker amber color with a small, minimal head/ Aroma is caramel, honey, light citrus and mild toasted grain. Taste is caramel, roasted malts, mild citrus, pine and toffee in the finish. Mouthfeel is medium with moderate carbonation and a long, citrus hop finish. Nicely balanced and well crafted. Easy drinking for sure.

Dark amber red pour with a brownish head. Aroma is of sweet malts, dark fruit... Dates, raisons? Taste is similar... Sticky sweet palette. Decent, just too sweet for my tastes.
