3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
nice color and a good white head. aroma is distantly fruity and a little faintly alcohol, not altogether pleasant. palate is predominantly hopped, bitter aftertaste with high carbonation. The palate is complex for an amber, lacks the usual caramel flavors and has no sweetness. Bitterness is more reminiscent of an IPA. This is a good, drinkable beer, but not one I buy again. Judging from the other comments, the draft variety is a different animal than the one from the bottle and I would like to try that one.

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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
