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.

Nice head that stays for a while. Malty beginnning that finishes quite bitter for an amber. Much sweeter and more well rounded on draught, as are all offerings from K-zoo brewery.

I havenít tried too many beers of this style...not quite as good as John Courage in my book, flavor is slightly lacking and the body is thin for an ale. Worth a taste though.

Beautiful color. Better than your average amber. Kind of chestnutty. Round and pleasant.

Sweet, fruity aroma that follows through in the taste. A strong fruit-malt beginning complimented with a pleasant bitter finish.

Beautiful white head on this one. A load of hops for a dry finish but not overdone. I drink this in summer when I canít get Bellís Oberon.

Auburn, with a creamy off-white head. Nose is peachy and a bit fruity, with noticeable hops. I usually think of ambers as malty, not particularly hopped brews, but this one has a load of hops. Very bitter. Slight fruit of the peach or apricot variety, but mostly just sharply bitter with few malts.

this beer was a suprise to me. with a light coppor flavor and a medium head leaving nice rings on the glass. it has a smooth taste, sweet at first with a light hoppy finish that is barely noticeable at first. it also has a dry finish on your lips. suprising to my self i enjoyed this beer.

Like the Pale Ale, itís on the pale side for the style and has a similiar head. The body is a medium amber, but looks gold in some lights. Aroma is less hoppy than the PA and picks up some caramel notes. The flavor also has the slight caramel notes, but is still dominated by that crisp pale malt flavor (donít know what itís called). The hops are subtle to not there in the beginning but come out to give you a slow motion punch in the end. Itís a very weak, friendly punch though. Seems like the hop blend is the same or similar to the one used in the Pale Ale, just in lower amounts.
