I waited far too long to try this, due to an unfortunate bias against anything called an "amber ale". Really an extra buscuity pale with great balance and hop flavor.

12oz bottle from Woodmanís in Madison. Pours slightly hazy golden copper with off-white head. Aroma is hoppy with citrus and pine with a touch of caramel malt. Flavor is nicely balanace between caramel malt with citrus, pine, and hops. This more hoppy than some of the IPAís I have had recently. This is a really good amber ale and I am surprised by the low ratings.

bottle. seems like this should have more alcohol with a name like ambergeddon. well, whatever. pours an uninspired, uniform straight red color. smells pretty damned good, actually, especially from afar, where fruit candy dominates. closer, itís much hoppier and not unlike a 2 hearted. Flavor is a bit of a letdown, with not much hop character, pretty dry, and some metal. Just kinda mild/boring, nothing particularly bad about it. Overall, another good offering from ale asylum (2 for 2). And much better than i was expecting it to be.

GAManiac (1944) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 3, 2009
12oz bottle courtesy of the maximum12 Fight Club beat-down, poured into a tulip. Pours a slightly hazy amber brown in the glass that shows bright amber when held up to light. An aggressive pour created a huge creamy off-white head that leaves tons of lacing on the way down. The aroma is a combination of light citrus hops, with oranges and pineapple, and a light caramel malt sweetness. Itís kinda got a musty character to it, with some earthy hops as it warms. The taste has a minimal hop kick up front with hints of citrus before giving way to a slight toasted caramel malt backbone. The finish is a combination of sweet malts and a little earthy hop bitterness. The mouthfeel is creamy with plenty of carbonation and medium-bodied overall. This is a solid brew that very drinkable. Itís not extraordinarily complex, but itís got enough flavor to make it a very good beer.

notalush (5280) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2009
Quite and amped up amber in the hop department - a lot of earthy hops in the nose - the flavor starts bitter and almost peppery - followed fast by a light fruity character and a medium caramel maltiness - medium-bodied and quite quaffable.

mabel (7059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2009
[1857-20081112] 12floz bottle. Hoppy grains aroma with a big of orange citrus and mild heather. Clear, amber red body with a medium-lasting creamy light tan head with some lacing. Dry grainy toasted yeast flavour with some leafy hops. Medium body is dry and bitter. Quite drinkable.

hopheaven (91) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 1, 2009
Murky brown in color with a frothy white head. Smells very nutty with a backbone of piney/citrus hops. Flavor is same. Very delicious. All of the Ale Asylum beers Iíve tried so far have had a distracting hop presence and a very nutty tasting malt profile. In this case, it is a perfect product and flawlessly true to style. There is enough fragrance and fruitiness from the hops to balance the sweet, nutty malt character. A significant alcohol content is evident too. Yeast flavor is detectable but not off-putting. Finishes semi-dry with a lingering bitterness.

jercraigs (8334) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2009
2008-11-12. Dark amber with a smallish beige head. (3+) Mild aroma, muted grains, alcohol fueled hops. Lightly astringent malt, sweet caramel flavours, a touch oxidized perhaps? Average palate. Possibly a bit past its prime? <i>Bottle shared by DuctTape</i>

holdenn (2088) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Pours a hazed amber with a soapy off white head. Nose of malt that is slightly sweet aged and an herbal hop. Smooth body. The malts have a strong herbal earthy bitterness that is quite tasty. A solid hopped up amber. 7/3/8/3/15 = 3.6
