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.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2007 rerate, May 22, 2007: Right there with Ipswich as the most perfectly balanced beer. Perfect amount of sweet caramel malt, crisp and delicious. Original rating, Mar 24, 2006 (3.9):rich copper color with a small head and nice lacing. very nice, if slightly subdued aroma of sweet malt with a hoppy presence. Flavor is very lightly sweet and carmely with a fair amount of hoppieness. Rich fruity tones. Very nicely balanced, finishes moderatly hopped and lightly dry.

This has to be the best amber I have ever had. Nice and balanced as you would ever wanted it to be. Nice amber color with a good off-white head. Decent malt and hop nose. Medium body to round everything out. A must try for amber lovers

12oz bottle. This amber came highly recommended and I understand why. A very enjoyable ale! Off white head, golden tone. Sweet malty initial and mid taste. An almost fruit like finish. Very palletable!

Pours a pretty clouded orange-ish brown amber. Slight leafy nose. Seems very calm though. The flavor really brings it here. Even and firm bodied. Consistently earthy woody tones. Feel is very well bodied on the liquid and a good carbonation as well. I’m calling this as a good example of the style and an overall good brew to try.

As to my joy and luck finding this beer on vacation in a small town in northern Minnesota. Nice brown reddish color. Malt and caramel aroma was an eye opener. Malty and smooth was the flavor nice and creamy but not too heavy. Semi-sweet aftertaste some bits if hops on the tongue. One of the best amber ales.

Not bad!!! If Val Blatz had invented this it would rate even higher. Nice color, aroma, and flavor. A little expensive, but worth it to have one before slamming a 12 pack of Blatz!

Very nice color which is copper looking. The beer has a excellent taste but not overpowering. Very good beer.

Overall a smooth easy to drink brew with a nice light sweetness, that is offset by the mild hoppy bitterness...
