superspak (2203) - Michigan, USA - DEC 8, 2013
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 11/30/2012. Pours moderately hazy deep reddish copper color with a 2 finger dense light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, bread, toffee, orange peel, grapefruit, lemon zest, peach, floral, grass, and floral earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance of malt and hop notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, biscuit, toast, toffee, nuttiness, orange zest, grapefruit, lemon zest, floral, grass, and toasted earthiness. No bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, biscuit, toffee, nuttiness, citrus zest, floral, and toasted earthiness. Damn nice balance and robustness of malt and moderate hop flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a moderately creamy and smooth mouthfeel that is very nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent amber ale. All around great balance and robustness of malt and moderate hop flavors; and very smooth to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Lagerboy (1067) - British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 28, 2013
Bomber. Unclear medium copper, lasting small creamy off-tan head. Caramel malt, faint hop aroma and taste, lightly fruity and not much else. Soft carbonation, light-medium bodied, low hopped. Somewhat bland and boring. MLF (More Lagerboy Friendly)

Came around to this after re-trying in early 2013. Great balance of malt and hops. Hops present but not overwhelmed by the caramel flavors.

A pretty impressive amber ale, kind of a hoppy smoked gouda, blueberry and blue cheese. Interesting. Nice.
