Bottle. Pours with a white foamy head that laces well. Dark amber with a slight haze. The aroma has some heave coffee notes. Medium body with a flat finish, the extra hops are evident.

What a really nice beer. Crisp, and slightly malty. A little sweetness. Nice aroma with a trace of maltyness. I find it to be one of the more pleasant beers in this style.

Large off-white head. Minimal carbonation. Lots of small floaters in there also. Malty and roasted grain aroma with some light vanilla. Color is a hazy medium amber. Light flavor with a little bit of fruit and malts. Pretty bland. Finish is a little on the creamy side with some more malts. Really nothing special with this one. I need a damn belgian after all of the mediocre brews.

Really, Iím not that all crazy about Amber beers. Strong flavor, almost like well water as it tastes like iron. Not bad but Iíd prefer to spend my money on some of their other concoctions.

Cloudy orange with medium off-white head. Citrus hoppy aroma, very fresh. Distinctly hoppy flavor thatís unexpected for an amber. But thereís a lot of sweetness, too much so.

Although this amber has a nice (albiet unexpected) hop bitterness, it is cloyingly sweet. Like drinking sugar syrup. I mean itís not terrible but definetely lacking something that makes a beer exceptional.

An acceptable drink. Nice reddish brown color with a passing white head. Sweet caramel malt aroma with a touch of bitterness. Much the same with the taste. Disappointing in that I know this brewery can and does much, much better.

This tastes like a quality brew, but they said it had a sweetness and based on that I bought some. It was too hoppy to really be sweet. The malts didnít really "balance" the hops flavor either, in my opinion. By being adaptable and changing my expectations based on what I now know to be true about this brew, I will gladly finish the six pack, since, after all, it is quality brew. However, I wasnít really after the bitter hops flavor at all, so I feel its misrepresented.
