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.

Radek Kliber (6495) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - JUL 1, 2003
Thick head, light as some of my fellow friends noticed with me (Hoppygrrrl and Psych.). Very sweet aroma, some honey and caramel. Slightly alcoholic, medium light body. Light and refreshing brake from heavier brothers. Fun to drink

DrSilverworm (6478) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 25, 2011
12oz, bottled on 9/20/11. 5.8% ABV. Halfway-hazy orange color, minimal white head with a sparse webby surface. Very nicely hopped with a pleasant orange-peel aroma. Spots of lace. Crisp carbonation. Light bitterness with tart sweetness. Really nice. A fantastic amber.

Pours amber with a thin white head. Smells of roses, sweet malt, some pepper. Tastes of pepper, citrus and sweet malt.

5000 (6300) - 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!

arminjewell (6217) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 5, 2009
A fairly good version of the style, nose of malts and tastes of just the same but fairly weak in body and finish.

Svesse (6163) - 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.

after4ever (6140) - 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.

Rastacouere (6131) - 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.

HogTownHarry (6108) - 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.
