Sweet and malty up front with a good citrusy hop flavor and bitterness. This was my favorite of the sampler.

Good overall color and head. Average aroma. More a classic Amber than a Red Ale, more malt than hops. Still balanced and roasty. Good with a Steak and Mushrooms. One of the Brewery’s two best for me.

On tap at the Ram/Big Horn in Rosemont, IL. Pours a coppery red amber brew with an average off-white head that dissolves to a fine film and good lacing. Aroma of light caramel, toffee, mild malt, and a touch of citrus hops. Taste is medium body, lightly carbonated with a slight hop bite. Finish is sweet with a touch of citrus peel dryness.

I liked this amber. It was pretty good. A nice balance, however slightly muted. Deep dark reddish brown mahogany color with a fluffy head.

woah, looks pretty dark brown for an amber. no head. on draft at Rams in Northgate mall. Love the aroma, almost like chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Tastes like it smells but no roasted flavor really. nice carbonation pop to it. Some of the more nutty flavors taste "young."
