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 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.

Pint glass, from bottle, about 40deg F. Pours translucent cloudy amber with little head. A low level of carbonation and a very rich creamy texture that lingers on the palate. Strong taste of cane sugar, caramel, malt, and finishes with a mild hoppy bitterness. After the beer warmed up a but there was a very nice shot of orange and citrus that was unexpected. This beer is quite good. It could use a little more bitterness to balance the sugars and more carbonation to enhance the finish. Regardless, it is a tasty brew that I will have again.

Decent amber ale. Nice malty aromas, light sweetness. Easily drinkable. Itís a little on the thin side.

Ok. Pours a nice dark amber. Nose like an IPA. Hoppy and a little citrus aroma. Taste is a little flat without much depth, but ok. A little caramel and nutty flavor.

Very light bodied. Had a good flavor. Amber beers are among my favorites, so I enjoyed trying this one.

Three strong and distinct flavors roll through the mouth at every sip. On first taste, you are greeted by an intense malty sweetness, which soon gives way to strong fruit notes. This is strange, because I could not exactly pin what fruit, but itís definitely fruit. Just as you are finishing with the fruit, a slightly dry, bitter ending comes to remind you to take another sip. I was very surprised when I was almost done with this brew so soon after I started.

Had this on draft. Dark straw color, cloudy appearance. Lacks hop bite up front. Full malt flavor but a bit too sweet for my taste. Stronger hops would let me rate this brew higher.
