Mmmmm mmmm! Good beer, good beer! Unusual for an amber. Like an IPA with a lot of malt, or something. Slightly sweet, caramel. Slightly citrusy in the finish. Very interesting and very good. But like all AV products in Iowa--is it really worth 10 bucks a sixer?!

Had this one on draught in Geneva, Illinois. Unusual hop character for an amber ale, somewhat more bitter than most. Deep, copper color, no head, carmel and orange in the nose. Very strange.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2005
12 oz bottle - Pours a dark amber with an amazing half inch offwhite puffy head that laces well. Aroma is mostly caramel malts but a slight hop scent can also be detected. Flavor is strong caramel malts upfront with a slightly bitter hop finish. Like a little more malty IPA. Pretty delicious. On the palate this is medium bodied and hearty for an amber ale. I really liked this beer and I’m looking forward to trying more from this brewer.

Pailhead (4606) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAY 22, 2005
Bottle: Aroma of caramel and some light flowery hops is not all that strong. Pours a dark transparent amber with a small white head that diminishes rather quickly. Watery caramel malt up front with a decent citrus and flowery hop finish. EPA-like with some citrusy notes in the finish.

bottle from brickskeller. aroma: malt, with some mild aromatic hops present. looks: clear amber. flavor: caramel malt is dominant, with a slightly sweet finish. a stellar amber, but definitely on the sweeter side than others.

darkerdabetter (255) - Michigan, USA - APR 27, 2005
Decent looking, with a nice amber color and white head. Lots of carbonation. Nothing spectacular in flavor, slight hops and sweetness, but overall found it very drinkable.

Cloudy red/amber, decent sized white head. Sweet nose--cream and honey. Fairly thin flavor, some musty malt, dry nutty bitterness.

It poured an amber color. Orange like head, that did not last.Hop, malt, and Sweet scent. This was quite nice for a pale ale. I looked hard and found some caramel in nose and taste. A bit watery.

Good amber. On tap at Coles. Deep amber, orange body with a thick white head. Some good hoppy, malty scents. Roasted malty, slight hoppy flavor. I expected more from this. Solid beer.
