COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our West-Coast style amber is aggressively hopped, with a strong malt backbone and a mild hop bitterness in the finish.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Bottle: Dull Amber, fairly dirty, moderate to large fluffy off-white head, fairly nice lacing.   Hop oriented nose, very pale citrus zest as well.   Somewhat malty on the tongue, but moreso a healthy hop dose.   Not enough to be an IPA, but certainly more than one would expect for an Amber Ale.   Well at least for an Amber thats not going to be very malty, which this one isnít.   There is some meat there, but not enough in my book.   However, it does make for quite a nice Pale Ale.   Moderate to full bodied, moderate mouthfeel.   Pleasant, even if not malty enough.   Thanks Mike for this one!

This beer wasnít what I expected, and Iím not sure itís "true to style," but I thought it was delicious. A very pleasant ruby red-amber color with a relatively brilliant finish, but a limited amount of carbonation, from the look of it. Aroma is what I think an amber ale should be - a nice blend of caramel and hoppiness bound together so thoroughly you canít really tell where one ends and the other begins. Flavor is pronounced hoppiness...not really true to style (IMO) but delicious nonetheless. Mouthfeel is a bit sticky, like a pretty good IPA. I like this beer quite a bit.

First of all bonus appearance point for the baddass label. However, despite all the tough talk on the label, this is in fact, a rally nice session ale, nicely blended and very quaffable. Nice floral hop note throughout. Thanks to Buckybeer for the trade!

(Bottle) Pours a clear golden amber body with a creamy medium-sized off-white head. Aroma of sunflower seeds, toasted malt, fried egg whites, citrus, and caramel. Flavor of citrusy hops, nuts, and caramel malt. Nice easy drinker!

WallyWalrus (205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Bottled courtesy of Gurst. Dark orangish/amber color with a thin head. Extremely effervescent. Strong hoppy smell of citrus and coriander. Starts with a crisp taste more reminiscent of an IPA, but with a slightier heavier body and a subtle malty and nutty finish. Very unique beer.

Bottle. Pours hazy amber color with a mdeum sized off white head. Aroma of hops and cirtus. Taste is slightly bitter intiallu and then mellows to a nice malt flavor with hints of caramel and lemon. Finishes with a bit of hop aftertaste.
