Pours cloudy orange with foamy white head that dissipates quickly. Fruity, malty aroma. Slightly sweet and slightly bitter. Lively, but smooth. I really, really like this one. Not my typical favorite type of beer, but if Iím looking to kick back a bunch of beers, Iíll try to gt a case of this stuff. I could drink 9 of these, and Iíd enjoy every bit of it.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(On tap at Bell's) With an unexpectedly light color for an "amber" ale, this brew has a sweet aroma. Hoppy, tangy flavor, but falls flat. In sum: OK, but rather disappointing.

This is an awesomly thick amber ale with loads of flavor. Agreat traveling beer as it does not need to be fridge-cold to be enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A: The body is an exceptionally clear amber color topped with a very small white head that fell quickly.
S: There is a pleasant sweet malty aroma with caramel notes from the beer.
T: There is a bit of hoppiness that presents itself in the flavor; having been hidden in the aroma. This is backed up by a bit of caramel but is bitterness dominated.
M: This is a good light bodied beer without being watery.
D: Nothing in this beer really stands out even though it is a solid beer. A good example of an amber ale but not one to write home about. Would make a good session beer though.

Light amber with little head but very clingy. Light malty aroma. Light creamy malty swee taste with a hint of black currant, nicely offset with finishing hops. Surprisingly light mouthfeel considering the taste. Finishes a bit fuller than the start.

Im not a big fan of the amber ale style, but I have been told by so many that this is one of the best. Its good, caramel, amber colored, with a caramel toast presence with a nice hop balance. For the style its good.

Iíve had this on tap and in bottles. Both experiences were pretty good. For an amber ale, it does finish well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber with a white head. Malts are just light caramel and thereís just a slight spicy hop note in the aftertaste. Yes, itís very drinkable and not really bland, but itís kind of boring.

(bottled & bottle conditioned). Faintly sweet malt aroma, cloudy lighter-than-copper color (which is very attractive). Moderate body with a slightly sweet pale malty tinge. Nice clean bitterness fades shortly after the finish. Moderate carbonation adds to the body perception. I'd like to see this in a filtered version.
