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.

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.

On tap in KZoo: Yep it's an Amber alright. I was greeted by sweet caramel malt and fresh berry/apple aroma with a touch of dough yeast thrown about for good measure. Sweet tasting on the forefront with a delayed bitter hop balance, clean and crisp, taste was gone before you knew it. Dry and lively mouthfeel with no noticable flaws on the palate. Nice lighty fruity and hoppy beer. Underrated IMO, better on the tap than the bottle.

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.

Botte. Pours a deep amber with a decent white head. The aroma consists of malts and sweet bread. The taste is subdued, some sweet malts, a bit of hops, some bready parts, and maybe a light side of fruit. Easy to drink and smooth. Nothing too special though.

DSG (5799) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 17, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Tempo. Thanks kerenmk. Clear amber. Aroma of cardboard, malt, a bit of caramel and a bit of stale hops. Sweetish flavor with malt, caramel, cardboard and some stale hops bitterness. Medium-bodied. Too old.

mabel (5762) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 10, 2007
[394-20070702] 355mL (w/ jerc). Wheaty malt and toasted straw yeast aroma with a hint of fruit, apple if anything. Slightly hazy, dark orange body with a long-lasting thin creamy white head. Grainy vegetable alcohol flavour with toasted yeast. Light-medium body. Not impressive, something funky there.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2007 Orange-amber, lightly sedimented, with a large head. Lightly bready aroma. Drinks with a sweet edge, a light caramel-candy underbelly, and a sticky consistency. Numbers not changed much. <<Re-rated 10/31/2007>>

12 oz. bottle from John’s Grocery (Iowa City, IA). Pours a very hazy dark amber hue with a significant bubbly tan head that begins to dissipate. Aromas of sweet caramel malts and sugary sweetness with a nice hoppiness. Initial taste is a mellow sweetness that flows through to a bit of a hoppy fruitiness and moves further towards a smooth semisweet finish that tastes of wonderful caramel malts. Overall, lacking in hop bitterness, the aroma led me to believe we’d have a more noticeable hop portion. However, a nice mellow amber that openly displays an impressive malt bill in taste and in aroma. Yum.
