OnWisconsin (132) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Pours a nice golden medium amber color. Had about a 1/2 finger head which disipated in about 2 minutes. Aroma had malts up front with some mild pine hops after. Tasted a sweet malt very smooth and well balanced. Thought this would have more hop to it but very nice and smooth, especially when it hits about 50 degrees, about 5 minutes after pulling it out of the 35 degree fridge. Smooth light to medium mouthfeel.

LilBeerDoctor (3497) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 23, 2014
On tap at Ale Asylum. Pours a hazy orange brown with a thick white head. Aroma of caramel malt, floral hops, grassy hops. Flavor of sweet fruits, sweet pale malts, earthy hops, light bitterness. A tasty amber, not super hoppy as others have described but fairly hoppy for an amber. Sturdy palate, drinkable. 7/4/8/4/14 (3.7/5)

Excellant amber ale lots of flavor. Hints of chocolate aroma and taste the hefty ABV is well hidden with all the flavors more malt then hops a nice change from the many IPA’s I have been trying lately.

Finhead (1189) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 26, 2014
Cloudy, amber-brown pour with a frothy off-white head. The aroma has pine with some bread and caramel. It has a medium body with smooth texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bittersweet, then finishes more bitter and dry.

Dogbrick (8149) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Sample at the brewpub. Clear dark amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing. Malt, caramel and hops in the nose. Medium body with flavors of caramel, malt and subtle resiny hops. The finish is malty up front with a piney hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Nero55 (722) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2014
Draft. Amber with thin off white head. Aroma fruit (cherries), fruity hops, and some caramel sweetness. Medium body, heavy caramel sweetness, medium hop bitterness, and some fruit notes.

Indra (2621) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - AUG 17, 2014
On draft at the brewpub. Aroma of piney, citric hop, toasted malt, caramel, background fruitiness and earthiness. Clear medium red in color with a fine, sparse head and very fine lacing. Flavor profile is full of piney, earthy hop flavors and bitterness, with the dark, caramel, toasty malts certainly present but largely overridden by the hops here, very much a Red IPA. Fine but persistent effervescence, a high degree of it in fact, body is medium. Interesting stuff, very earthy and bitter overall, lacking in balance to an extent due to this factor.

stoutchap (416) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Pretty decent ale. More like an IPA than a true amber though. Lots of hops and a bit of malt. Very tasty, but not a traditional amber.

jjgmd (1447) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Pours an amber reddish brown color with a foamy cream head. Nose is rich caramel, toffee and malt and sweet. Taste more hoppy than sweet, with a mild to long lingering finish. Quaff Score 6 / 10

zgaier (1400) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours an amber orange with a tan head and aroma of hops and caramel. Taste is bitter, hoppy, grapefruit notes with malt and caramel leading to a dry, bitter finish

Best damn amber I’ve had in awhile. Beautiful color with a great finish and one of the most badass labels you can find. I think I’ll be drinking more ale asylum beers, you got me hooked
