3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pint at beer revolution. Nice light amber with an airy crayola crayon "skin color" cap. Pleasant malt nose with dry, crisp grapefruit. Taste is actually a trailing hoppy vinegar. Weird. But prominent taste is a balanced spice, hoppy malt. Yeah. Get what you want outta that aces review.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Another 8 wired winner! Pours a beautiful colour with a fantastic nose. This is a great take on an amber. As with most of the 8 wired range, would thoroughly recommend it. Its only drawback is the price: AUS $14.

Bottle. LA will win the cup but I still end up second in my pool. Dark red with fair head. Nice malty aroma with noticeable hops. Woody red hoppy flavour. Nice and drinkable. Not extreme just strong flavours and drinkable.

Bottle at home, from my Minneapolis Town Hall glass. Pours deep ruby red, with a garnet hue. Nose is dense grapefruit, tropical fruit, some pine, sweet caramel, really nice smelling Amber! Flavours of smoky red berries, caramel, grapefruit hops, nice bitterness, which plays well off the sweetness. Not great but very good. Would have again happily.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle pours a rich amber color with a small off-white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is pleasantly fruity with some mild hops. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness and some light fruits balanced nicely with a bold spicy hop bitterness. Medium bodied with nice carbonation. One of the better amber ales that I have sampled, just very enjoyable.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
No where near as popular as the Hopwired, but to me this is more the real deal. Softer hops and a richer and fuller flavour.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at Henrik. Has a hazy brown colour with a medium light beige head. Fruity hops in the aroma along with berries, red currants, raspberries, and peaches. More touch of forest in the mouth with berries, wild berries, wood, grass, hops, pine and alcohol. Medium bitterness, and a soft mouth feel. A nice balanced mixture of flavours in this ale.
