akoeninger (430) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 11, 2013
On tap at Ale Asylum, this is a nice hoppy amber ale. Great amber color with off white lacing and head. Has a floral hoppy aroma with hints of sweetness. Taste is floral and piney, at first but more of the sweet and toasted malt comes at as you drink it and it warms. Still a hop forward beer, the finish is long with bitterness at the front but sweet at the end. Complex in its simplicity, ( it's hoppy but the malt is so well balanced that it keeps it from being the dominate characteristic) this is an amber to try at least once. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not sure on the age of this beer, cryptic best by code is D6. Aroma is nice, tropical fruits, but also slight butter. The flavor is tropical, but not overtly bitter, has a nice tangerine quality. Dont think the bottle is fresh, woudl like to try it fresher.

Bottle thanks to Mark. Probably the best amber ale I’ve had. Awesome clear amber red color with fluffy off white head. Heavy hop aroma and flavor. Unique for amber ale.

Wow awesome amber beer. Nice caramel and toffee maltiness. What really elevates this beer is the solid hop backbone. Well done

Slight nutty aroma with little head, but a nice golden dark brown color. Some nutty flavor, but more hops come through. A easy drinking beer.

Bottle. Pours beautifully rich, deep amber with a lasting lacy white head. Aroma is toffee, caramel, malts and floral. Taste is medium bitter, light sweet. Soft carbonation, creamy texture and medium bodied. Tasty!
