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.

Golden in color with an off white head. Sweet malty aroma. Had a slight sour palate with a high carbonation finish

This particular bottle poured with large head...the ale has some beautiful bubbles. The color is a cloudy amber that is very inviting. The sweet aroma is contrasted by a lingering bitterness, the contrast and balance is nice. A nice thin head is lingering...this adds to the overall look. A very nice Amber Ale this one is.

Bottle pours clear amber with thin white head. Aroma is malt and bread. First taste is sweet malt with nice hops balance. Finish is sweet. Not strong on hops but really like this one. Way better than Fat Tire.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a cloudy copper. Taste on the nose is malt followed by a nice citrus follow. Tastes more like an APA then a amber ale. It's good as an APA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

smboselli (146) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2012
A foggy pale copper pour with a thick white head that huge the glass. In addition to the sweet malty smell, there are citrus notes. Taste did not disappoint. Very smooth, delicious ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

fuchebu (146) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 31, 2003
This is a classic session beer. It has enough malts to provide a slightly sweet flavor. But it is hopped well enough to be balanced. A touch of fruitiness makes it a grand beer experience.

DCopperfields (146) - New York, USA - JAN 6, 2004
Not exactly what I would deem amber; actually, more of a malty pale ale. Nice, bubbly headwith a cotton candy lace following the the tophat. Aroma is big floral hops, sweet like caramel with candied apple. Medium bodied brew, quenching and then nice hop follow up. Juicy, delicous. Cheers.

scrawfis (143) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - JAN 31, 2004
Great malty aroma. Appearance is light amber and slightly opaque. Flavor is crisp and refreshing with a good hop/malt balance, a fruit flavor is very noticeable. Surprising amount of body to this type of beer. Would definitely buy again.

Sweet to the touch. I had to take a pause after I took my first sip. I was drinking Birra Moretti before this and was not expecting it to come along so brutishly. Ripping and tearing apart my taste buds like a box of sour patch kids mixed with rusty nails. Not bad, not bad at all.
