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.

Cloudy orange with medium off-white head. Citrus hoppy aroma, very fresh. Distinctly hoppy flavor that’s unexpected for an amber. But there’s a lot of sweetness, too much so.

bhensonb (11367) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 25, 2008
Bottle. Aroma of hop over caramel. Amber color with a huge, frothy white head. Thin to medium body with very mild carbonation. Flavor is kind of bready with fruity/floral hop. Finish is more dry than sweet. Seems more like an ESB, but perhaps the bitter is inadequate for that. Pretty good, but seems bland. Barring the 6% it would be a good session beer.

brokensail (11231) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 17, 2011
A: The pour is a clear amber color with a finger of light khaki head. S: An alright aroma to this one. Some toasted malt and bread notes with a bit of floral and grassy hops. Light sweetness with the caramel and toffee notes coming through. T: There is quite a bit of grassy hop flavor with just a bit of bitterness. Most of the flavor comes in the form of toffee, toasted bread, and caramel sweetness. M: Medium bodied with a medium level of carbonation. O: An okay amber ale, but not really any better than any number of amber ales I’ve had.

Lubiere (10285) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 21, 2006
Hazy amber ale with a very thin white head. Small floaties. Aroma is sweet and fruity but not very hoppy. In mouth, a nice sweet nutty malt with woody notes, and light raisins. A lingering malt remains, with powdery and light oily mouthfeel. Medium bodied. From piscator, Nov. 2005. Merci Kris.
