This Amber Ale is brewed with all American ingredients, showcasing a rich amber color with a pleasant malt sweetness on the front and enough hop body to balance the flavor all around for a crisp refreshing craft ale taste.

hotstuff (4643) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - FEB 7, 2016
Rated on 02-07-2016 (Can) The appearance is a medium sized beige head that mostly diminished, opaque ruby body, fast rising carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is some citrus and caramel malt. The flavor mimics the aroma along with tasting old and thick. The mouthfeel is thick and sour. This beer is light bodied. This beer taste old as if it’s been on the store shelf for way too long and lost its characteristics. This was disappointing since I like amber ale beers. This beer is one of the worst tasting beers that I have drank/rated.

12oz can. Cloudy rust hue/large pale tan head. Leafy nose. Moderate hops at best-seemed an English style; earthy, toasted caramel maltiness. Medium to full body and moderate to medium carbonation.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - OCT 7, 2015
Can: Well it is more hoppy than the norm and is less sweet, really it is not your standard Amber Ale at all but more akin to a Bitter. So being better that most in the genre make it noteworthy or something I would want again... hum NO.

RichardW (1813) - Carlisle, Cumbria, ENGLAND - JUL 20, 2015
On tap at Cafe Tu Tu Tango, Orlando. Pours pretty flat, deep reddy-amber colour. Very reminiscent of an English bitter, slightly woody, with a late hop note that could have done with being a little more obvious.

SHIG (4210) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUN 7, 2015
Can thanks to stephrocks: Poured a mahogany brown with a two finger beige head. Aroma is leafy malt and tobacco. Taste is a sweet toffee malt, it has a light hop bite that helps balance the sweetness.

BelgianBeerGal (3580) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Tallahassee TJ’s can. Slightly cloudy bronze color with a foamy khaki head that settles into a film. Aroma is sweet perfume with a hint of yeast. Flavor has a light hoppiness with pineapple fruitiness. Meh.
