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.

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 28, 2005
Maple colored, gentle off-white head. Apricot and peaches are overrun by sweet caramely maltiness in the nose. Light floral hops, herbal and balanced. Fairly typical, even for an amber ale. The hoppiness remains fairly restrained, while the malt dances from québécoise rousse nuttiness to more competent toastiness. Light-medium bodied, malty texture, moderate carbonation. Cerealic, smooth, sweet and easy-going for a 6% beer.

5000 (6029) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Bottle pours pale caramel, very cloudy with bits floating about, virtually no head, good carbonation, with slick lacing.   Sweet malts & butterscotch on the nose.   Semi sweet malts up front, immediately followed by a biting graininess, which also fades rather quick.   Finishes rather boring, more bitter than malty.   Medium body and mouthfeel, but too much like a malty pale ale.   Thankes goes out to atpayne for the trade!

HogTownHarry (5984) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 24, 2006
Bottle (12oz). Deep hazy amber with a solid beige foamy-rocky lasting head. Pleasant orange juice malty aroma, mild resiny hops, fresh grain and wildflowers. Taste is sweet juicy malt, maybe a bit more orange flavouring than I’d like, and the hops seem positively perfumy - I’d like something a little ballsier with the hops. Creamy, lightly carbonated almost sugary mouthfeel - I mean this isn’t bad, but it doesn’t scream "Bells" to me.

drowland (5961) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2009
On tap in a pint glass. Pours amber (go figure!) with a small white head that sticks a bit. The aroma is surprisingly hoppy for an amber, and so is the flavor. The flavor is like hoppy caramel biscuits - a welcome change for an amber. Light body and somewhat high carbonation.

after4ever (5937) - Brier, Washington, USA - DEC 2, 2007
12-oz. Thanks, Boboski! Pours a deep cloudy medium toffeed amber. Thick rocky head falls away to white moussy film after a few drinks. Rather sour bready/yeasty nose. Medium body with crisp but somehow intermittent carbonation. Lots of caramel and pale wheat bread on the mid-palate. Bready finish. This beer is definitely a celebration of all the grain agriculture that beer and breadmaking have in common.

KyotoLefty (5906) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 29, 2010
Bottle with dcachur after the Founders night, RBSG. Nice amber malt falvor and great hop balance. Slightly sweet, with a bit of chocolate and caramel. Very drinkable.

Svesse (5876) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2010
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Wallingatan, Stockholm) Amber colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, slightly fruity nose with notes of caramel, dried fruit and orange peel. Fruity, malty taste with dried fruit, orange, caramel and a balanced bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with some sweetness. Lacking something extra, but well balanced and tasty.

phaleslu (5875) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 30, 2009
12 oz. bottle from the Party Source. Pours a cloudy amber-gold color with some visible sediment and a big rocky off-white head that leaves some lacing. Light aroma of orange citrus, caramel, toast, and rye. Malty flavor, with notes of orange citrus, toast, and a little spice. Well-balanced, malty, and a bit sweet. Mild and light-medium bodied, with a dry finish. Good beer.

blankboy (5799) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 10, 2007
Bottle shared with tupalev -- my bottle. Pours a hazy orange-amber with an average size diminishing frothy off-white head. Nice, pleasant aroma of hops, caramel malt and fruit. Flavour’s the same, hops, caramel malt and fruit -- simple, but tasty and easy to drink. Medium bodied. Very good, a nice version of the style.
