12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Market Duluth, GA. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized white head that fades quickly. Aroma of caramel malts, earth, raw malt, bitter almond, earthy hops. The taste is caramel malts with muted citrus hops. Medium bodied.

Fruity, slightly hoppy, but in the end it is another benign red ale. Luckily i got a single bottle.

Draft @ OTH Strangely enough this one reminded me a lot of RB Peachstreet beer. Light amber color, white head. Aroma and flavor, fruit and hop citrus presence, leaning on a peach side. Mild notes of malt giving the beer a thin caramel and roasted malts in the profile. Just never imagined this one to be an amber.

Draught. Pours mahogany with a white head. Smells of light caramel, some earthy hints. Tastes rosey and watery with a thin, caramel finish.

blipp (6200) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Malty sweet and bready aroma. The flavor has some light sweetness, with bready, earthy, and toffee notes. Not bad.

DSG (6162) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 1, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2010 Bottle. Beer of the Month club. Clear deep golden to amber with a huge, short-lasting, shaving-foam-like head. Aroma of floral and citric hops and some biscuity, slightly caramelly malt. Flavor starts with some sweetish chewy biscuity malt and some fruitiness and continues on to a pleasant hoppy bitter finish with some notes of citrus and grass. Medium-bodied. A decent refreshing Amber Ale.

7/25/10. 12oz bottle courtesy Cavie. Malty caramel aroma with a hint of medicinal astringency. Very plain malty aroma with a hint of caramel. Meh.
