COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Atlas is Big Time’s most popular beer. Its mixture of pale, crystal, Munich, and light dextrin malts, with just a few pounds of roasted barley, give it a rich, robust malt flavor, and three distinctive Northwestern hop varieties (Chinook, Cascade, and Centennial) impart an aggressive hop character.

DSG (7485) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[3/2/15] Draught at Big Time Brewery in Seattle. Clear amber. Buttery aroma. Sweetish buttery flavor with some toasty and caramelly malt and a bitterish finish. Medium-bodied.

mcberko (8115) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 7, 2015
On tap at Big Time, pours a hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out bready caramel malt and a very gentle resinous hoppiness. Flavour is fairly bland but clean and pleasant, with bready caramel malts showcasing - not much hops at all. Very solid if unexciting.

Ferris (6594) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 6, 2015
Draft - Light caramel and pale malts. Clear copper with a decent beige head. Caramel and hoppy bitterness, with an oddly bitter fruity finish.

What you would expect from an amber ale, just the right flavor but nothing too exciting. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

fiulijn (15780) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2012
Draught at the brewpub, 4.5% ABV
Hazy amber color. The aroma is mild. It has a quite nice flavor of caramel, with light nuttyness; compared to other Amber Ales, this one has just an impression of sweetness and fruitiness, therefore it’s a better one; correct bitterness.
Good Amber Ale.

saxo (14424) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2012
Tap @ the brewery. Nice head with good duration. Color is amber. Aroma and taste are caramel, nuts, fruits, malt and hops. Semi bitter finish.

Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Pours a dark cherry with minimal head. Smell is a bit malty cherry. Taste has some spice to it. Drinkable.

Dogbrick (8983) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 4, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a clear amber color with a medium off-white head that dissipates slowly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt and mild hops. Light body with a sweet roasted malt character and notes of caramel and hops. The finish is short with a sweet malt aftertaste. Average Amber overall.

A quite dark red. This is decent. Not too malty, it has a bit of body but not too thick. Pretty decent.
