Bottle. Bright amber color, beige head. Light, sweet, and fruity nose and flavors. A little too easy and simple, not really anything remarkable.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 1, 2006
Pours dark amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of metallic, oxidized (cardboard) notes, and dates. Taste is sweetish malts, slightly nutty toasted malt. Mouthfeel is medium-bodied, slightly sticky with medium carbonation. Not bad, but not very enjoyable.

rotoguru (126) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2005
Great amber ale. Poured typical amber color with strong frothy head. Lightly sweet aroma is matched with a sweet taste and light hop backing that lasts. Currently my favorite amber.

oldrtybastrd (3222) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2005
Pours a nice bright amber color. Aromas of fruit/pine with some roasty scents. Flavor is citrus mixed well with the sweet malt, nice hoppy taste on this one.

FistFullOfCats (163) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2005
Bottle. Dark, nutty, toffee, malty. Little toasted, low on the hops...I could session this one pretty easily. Not bad at all. Finishes pretty darn clean. I agree with muzzlehatch, this one is a bit like an ESB. More details after I try it again.

beachbum25 (1085) - Powellville, Maryland, USA - DEC 17, 2005
12 oz bottle-Pours dark ruby red/brown with a foamy amber head which hangs in there a while. Nice appearence. Moderate toasted aroma, nutty,woodsy taste up front followed by just enough bitterness to leave you wanting more. Tasty ale, definatly one you could sit down & enjoy a few.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 10, 2005
22 oz bottle. A hint of dull haze to the dark amber body, topped by an everlasting fluffy thick-bubbled just-about-white head...lightly toasty, caramel aroma, lightly woody and doughy, just a touch of citric hops...very sweet initially, fruity (blueberries, apples), with a drier woody tone creeping slowly in...lightly syrupy-thick body actually works for this one, as it dries out considerably at the end and light mineralic bitter hints show up. Quite a fine example of an unremarkable style, though this feels a little closer to an ESB to me.

Megan (101) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - DEC 2, 2005
Had at Ashville BBQ Co. Cloudy red appearance. Decent head (although served in a plastic pint glass, yuk). Almost purple in color. Medium mouthfeel and fruity aroma and taste. Almost smells like lemon pledge.
