Smooth without being bland, rich without being heavy, and has a nice crisp finish. I wish this was available in Tennessee becasue Iíd like to try more of their stuff.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy orange with medium off-white head. Citrus hoppy aroma, very fresh. Distinctly hoppy flavor thatís unexpected for an amber. But thereís a lot of sweetness, too much so.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a great beer. It seems to have a good blend of hops to give it a very good taste, with an aroma that is excellent. I would have to say one of the best beers that i have had i would suggest it to anyone.

I am not a huge fan of ambers, but the hops in this one made it a bit better than others I have had.

Very nice amber color. Aroma is of caramal, malt, citrus and just a tiny bit of a floral note. Tastes like the description, just a bit sweet and a little hoppy. This is probably my favorite amber.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer is very bitter and very hoppy. The hops are almost overpowering. Greatly distracting from my enjoyment from the rest of the brew. I donít quite get it. Maybe I donít have tolerance for hops or something. Every time someone mentions nice restrained hops, I can rest assured that Itís going to make my mouth burn. So, thatís my soapbox rant for today.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy orange/amber pour with little head. Aroma reminds me a little of sweet tea with lemon. Nice body with a little hop bite at the end. Thanks to MaxPower for this one.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
austinpowers, my man, you write a fine review and you are a beer lover and trader par excellance, but you are hopeless when it comes to birds. That, my friend, is no swan, it is a GBH (great blue heron), a more spectacular bird than a cygnus, in my eyes. About the brew, however, you and I agree exactly. The definitive 3.6 - well made, sturdy, dependable. A fine rich malt action generously balanced.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2003 Pale orange-amber color, nice foamy head leaves a nice lace. Cloudy with floating yeast. Clean mild hop aroma, very balanced medium body feels full on the palate, nice hop bite in the finish, a little sour.
