Draft pour pint at BB’s. Wasn’t expecting to get such a refreshing amber out of this, but it really was. Ruby pour with an active fizz head. Caramel malt and soft spice aroma. Cool flavor with a moderate rich caramel malt. Mild toasty finish. Cant complain wiyh this one. Well executed amber. Playing a game of not knowing the beers, and having them just bring me one. Good pick here.

Pours a dark amber color. Aromas of hops, caramel, and a hint of citrus. Flavor is malty with a touch of nuts and chocolate finished with some mild hop action.

klaing (251) - Florida, USA - MAR 27, 2016
Dark Amber, high carbonation, thin head. Light body for an amber. Malts also on the light side for an amber. Hops are not intrusive. Simple drinking beer, good for the thirsty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 24, 2016
Can... Pours lightly hazy and dirty orange with a small, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The aroma features toastiness, caramel, doughiness and black tea. Medium-bodied with tickling carbonation. The flavor is well-balanced overall - toasted malts and caramel. Lightly bitter, refreshing finish.

hotstuff (4802) - 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.

Pours a dark Amber with a cream foam head. Basic malt aroma. Watery taste and mouthfeel with an acrid flavor and aftertaste. Slightly spicy.

Bottle. Rich biscuit and cereal flavor. Similar in flavor to a Marzen. A bit sweet, I enjoyed this.

FlandersNed (392) - , Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2015
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.
