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.

Brief write-up. No, this one isn’t very interesting, but it’s drinkable and goes with lunch/dinner quite well. I could have used more hoppiness, though. Fat Tire fans will love it.

Bottle. Pours clear orange with a bunch of micro floaties. Small white head, decent lacing. Aroma is caramel, not much else. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, nondescript. Medium body.

Bottle from Wegmans Sterling - had this one a couple days ago and frankly, I can remember it. Not really a ringing endorsement.

tectactoe (1664) - Michigan, USA - OCT 7, 2013
UPDATED: APR 8, 2014 Bottle: Golden-orange color with a yeasty haze that sticks around; light, eggshell head, slightly creamy and quickly receding to a small collar. Aroma is kind of mild, there isn’t much to it. Some biscuits, bread, and lightly toasted malt with a touch of mildly leafy and lightly spices hops. Touch of pine, even? Taste is equally mild... Mostly malty, toasted bread, light caramel even with some hops that seem of the English persuasion; leafy & earthy with a delicate spice to them. Touch of apple skin in the finish, though it’s mostly made of malt. Not a bad sipper. Kind of bland, but still a decent, relaxing drink.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2005 ReRate again! this beer is just not that good. this bottle i had was pretty fresh and it just didn’t do it for me. the beer was lightly carbonated, smelled like seaweed and toasted grains. herbal/tea flavors with a very flimsy body. highly over-rated amber in my book! ReRate-another one of the origonal ratings that i had to go back to. pous a copper hue with small white head. medium carbonation. slightly buttery dyacytl aroma, especially on the older of the 2 bottles i had. the toasty malts are the most represented in this beer. some hops in the finish-earthy and dry. not a bad amber, but not one of the best either.

Pours to a fizzy white head that quickly but not fully dispapates. The body is a liquid caramel color. There are tiny brown particles in the opaque body. The aroma is kinda weak. Light caramel malts and some apple peel with light nuts. The flavor is malty and lightly floral with an ever so slight nuttiness. I can’t say that this is very good. Perhaps an old bottle? The palate is velvety and has decent carbonation. Medium light mouthfeel, yet it still seems watery. This one falls way short of being a good beer.

Rastacouere (6125) - 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.

Thanks to Duane for this one. It poured a nice copper color, with an average head. Flavor was a bit too sweet for me, not very balanced, sweet aftertaste. Not terrible by any means, but not great either, ok.
