Amber color with a thick off white head. Aroma is nutty malts. Flavor is a little nutty with notes of toffee. Finishes slightly bitter, and overall fairly drinkable if not anything stellar.

Slight hoppy, yeasty, and malty flavors. Very nicely balanced. Medium to full bodied. Finish is a little thin. Decent brew.

draft. Pours a dark, brownish read with creamy, almost nitrogen like tan head. Medium bodied, low in carbonation, almost drinks like a bitter. Aroma is earthy with caramel, flavor is the same, notes of soil, toast, nuts, and caramel. Overall not too shabby.

Pour more of hazy straw color (red or amber to be seen). Aroma and taste were super heavy on malt (and skunkiness). Not sure if I got a bad bottle, but just not very tasty. Not amberish. More like a pils, but not that great for that even.Disappointment.

Draft. Amber with small white head. Aroma of sweet fruit (raspberries) and caramel. Light body that is very sweet throughout, fruit, and some stale notes (cardboard).

Bottle--well, it looked good, nice copper color with a small head, but that’s where the good stuff ended. Something like a malt aroma hit you in the nose. The taste was like the color, copper. None of the sweetness of caramel that was expected. High carbonation. Petty’s 1.99

12 oz bottle from the CASK Brewclub Banquet. Lightly floral and lemony hop aroma. Mild amber ale flavor, with a bit of caramel, light hop flavor and a little bitterness at the end. Very little aftertaste. Mild throughout, but completely drinkable. Not bad, not memorable.

12oz bottle, I forget the date but a fresh sample.

Pours clear light amber with a two finger off white head that leaves nice cobwebs of lacing and holds a small cap.

Aroma is pretty typical for an Amber, a little fruity, a little caramel, a little nutty, some light floral and grassy hops. Good strength.

Flavor is caramel malt, light fruits, light citrus hops, somewhat sweet, moderate bitterness, little to no alcohol.

Mouthfeel is on the light side of medium, a bit oily, medium carbonation.

A solid Amber Ale, but nothing spectacular.
