Light, clear brown pour. Malty caramel aroma. Sweetness is neatly balanced by the hops with a nice, creamy mouthfeel. residual sweetness and bitterness conflict afterwards.

UPDATED: JAN 13, 2014 On tap at Cactus Jack’s. Amber and clear with a sticky white head and light lacing. Toasted malts, light hops, caramel, toffee, light chocolate and earthy aroma. Similar flavor, pretty mild and easy to drink, lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Average body with a crisp feel. Not bad. Update: I had 4 or 5 of these last night. Definitely some brown ale characteristics with this beer. 647313

onceblind (3939) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Tap at brewery. Clear amber hued with a thin, fast-dissipating head. Slightly off aroma for an amber, smelled kinda candy sweet and a little vegetal, though there was also a touch of caramel and some sort of tone akin to fresh linen. Odd. Taste was much more classical, though not as caramelly sweet as I had hoped. Malty earthiness starts the flavor with a little bitterness and just the littlest bit of some sort of maple-like sweetness. Surprisingly dry overall. Not a huge fan.

Brouwerij (915) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 20, 2012
Pours a clear amber with a finger of rocky tan head. Decent retention and a little lacing. Aroma was mild, slight sweet malt, bread, and hay. Flavor was sweet and and mellow up front, mildly malty, grain. Faintly nutty with caramel, fairly light taste overall. Relatively clean finish. Moderate carbonation and a light body. Clean, drinkable, and tasty, but could have a bolder flavor.

A grassy-toffee aroma, slightly bitter taste with a short lingering malty palate. Not as sweet as the brewer describes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3fourths (7874) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 6, 2012
draft. hazed amber with a small tan head. sweet toasty caramel malt with dense and creamy carbonation. green, rough, raw and young tasting. stewed bitter greens, from spicy raw arugula to celery beef stew to actual hops. almost punishing in its rawness. erratic and sweet and bitter.

bigbish (511) - California, USA - MAR 15, 2011
Pours a nice amber color, thin head. Malts flavor, very smooth. Not a ton if flavor, its a little bland. A good beer, not amazing.

Nikiel (875) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Pours gold with light foam, looks more like an IPA than an amber. Smells of cherry blossoms and light hops. Tastes of cherry wood and strawberries with light bitterness from the hops and a bit of sweetness that doesn’t seem to come directly from the excess of malts in many ambers.

TwoSipDip (8948) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Tap at brewery. Clear rust orange colored body with an off white colored head. Slightly bitter amber malty aroma- pretty basic. Slightly bitter flavor with amber malts. This could be classified as a weak ESB or a red ale. Definitely more bitter than other amber ales but still drinkable. Ok.

bu11zeye (11933) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2011
(Draught) Pours a lightly hazy amber body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel, orange, grass, light pine, and sweaty gym socks. Flavor of caramel malt, citrus, and some grass with a dry finish.
