steelers (35) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Just had this beer for the first time out of a bottle. Of course I poured the beer into a glass. :0 Pours a slightly hazy amber/copper color with a thin off-white head on top. Decent retention, and it leaves some sticky lace in its wake. Smells very hoppy, of the citrus variety. Also some candied malts and brown sugar come through as well. Every time I sip this, Iím getting bombarded with nice aroma. This beer is actually much more malty than I expected. I was expecting a wave of bittering hops, but instead whatís there is a simple delicious mild hop profile, with a toasted caramel-flavor on the finish. This is really well-balanced and well-made beer. I will buy more of this beer in a blink of an eye. It toook me awhile to nail downa beer that reminded me of this beer. Summits Pale Ale is very simalur but the Ambergeddon is much better.

Hoppy up front, malty in back. This bet doesnít lack flavor. The hops seem to overpower the malt though. Neither one overpowers your taste buds though.

Deep amber pour with giant red tinted off white head. Smell is lots of sweet caramel with a cherry hint, citrus hops and wood. Taste is a good dose of hops (citrus and grassy) with a bigger dose of the caramel backbone from the malts, with a hint of some cherrywood. Really nice amber.
