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.

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.

Solid Amber Ale. Color is good. Nice nutty/caramel flavor with good carbonation. Crisp finish. Solid and would welcome another round

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.

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 it’s 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.

Ferociousaurus (37) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 18, 2009
Orange-amber color with some head and good lacing. Clear, dry hops evident in smell and taste. Honey and a decent toasted malt presence. Prefer other ambers, but certainly don’t regret this one.

Not their best, but still an overall quality amber ale from a Class A brewer. Finish is a little off imho.

imanerd (37) - Novi, Michigan, USA - JAN 12, 2007
Not an impressive beer. Its a standard amber. Malt, slight hops, subtle bitterness. The Laura Bell is 21 sticker is what made mine special.

Hazy amber and brown appearance, malt and caramel aroma and taste, mild hop appearance. Mouthfeel medium.
