COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made from mostly pale malt and some Munich and caramel malts. These add a little sweetness, which is balanced by more hops. The result is a rich color and fruity flavor.

Pretty good amber. A decent head and nice body. I had it on tap, so I will have to try the bottle. Not too hoppy.

Poured orangey cloudy amber with no head and MUCHO floaties...almost like an Achel Tripel...the floaties, not the color...smell is all malt, with caramel and sweet cookie dough dominating...taste is rich and malty...sweet with nuts, biscuits, dough, an a hint of caramel...quite tasty and flavorful for an amber...

SUPER malty! Reminds me of several homebrews in the american ale style. Not enough hops to balance the sweetness. Not a favortite of mine but does have itís merits as an old standby. Quality ingredients make up for a lack of complexity.

Lucky thing we caught the guy at the liquor store in Oxford, OH last night before he locked up or I wouldnt tried this fine amber ale. Great taste great aroma. A good way to fill the gap for my Fat Tire cravings while Iím at Miami.

I enjoyed this beer. It had a sweet aroma with a nice brown color and creamy white head. It was a tasty drink overall with a mild malty flavor. Cheers!

An acceptable drink. Nice reddish brown color with a passing white head. Sweet caramel malt aroma with a touch of bitterness. Much the same with the taste. Disappointing in that I know this brewery can and does much, much better.

Two 12 oz bottles at Rickís on the MSU campus. Bonus appearance point for the label (I dig Pelicans). Rich, chewy, brew.

Sweet and somewhat grassy on the nose. Poured a cloudy, golden color. Terrific mouthfeel. Tasted sweet initially but hops quickly neutralized things, leaving a pleasant, balanced aftertaste.
