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 isnít very interesting, but itís drinkable and goes with lunch/dinner quite well. I could have used more hoppiness, though. Fat Tire fans will love it.

Sample at brewfest, caramel malts, decent hops...very malty. Decent mouthfeel as well.

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

Realizing that I am not as much an amber fan as I thought I was. Solid brew from a fantastic brewery.

Pour is cloudy amber orange with a nice foamy white head. Aroma ensembles fresh baked bread and citrus. Taste is slightly bitter and breads with a smooth finish that leaves a strong bitterness. As far as ambers, I have certainly had better.

Bottle. Clear light brown. Carmel up front, nothing special but decent. Clean mouthfeel.

trapped (1119) - New York City, TURKEY - NOV 18, 2014
Draught. Clear amber color with medium beige spongy head, very little hops aroma, slightly sweet and spicy taste, medium finish with bitter aftertaste. Reminded me of an ESB.

Look: pours a dark Amber. White head. Minimal haze. Smell: similar to a lager. Caramel sweet. Cracker or bread. Taste: bitter on the back. Slight breadiness. Not overly sweet like the aroma. Pine. Onion. Feel: medium carbonation. Not overly dry, just on the back end. Overall: ok beer. Just not my style. First drank: home 11/23/14

Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot, orange, flowers). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Fairly sweet, and the nose is simple (nice fruity hops though), but itís clean and enjoyable enough.

UPDATED: SEP 16, 2005 ReRate again! this beer is just not that good. this bottle i had was pretty fresh and it just didnít 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.
