This draft brew from the BW3 on Maryland Ave in Indianapolis on our wedding day, Hotstuff and I, poured a small head of finely sized white colored mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a good lacing. The body was carbonated, transparent and copper brown in color. It had a mild malt hop red ale aroma and a tingly hoppy mouth feel with a lingering tingle in the finish. The flavor contained notes of red ale and hops.

Rockies Brewing...Faintly toasty, caramel, creamy malt nose. Orange copper hue, creamy off white head, lasting with moderate lacing. Toffee-ish malts, sweet, toasted cereal, late nuts, light to medium body, lacking in great falvor and balance. Faint bitter hop ending. Drinkable; a decent amber.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
The Singletrack pours an orange-copper color (surprise!) with a kind of fizzy off-white head that had decent retention and some lacing.
It aroma is very sweet smalt, almost cloying and kind of reminiscent of of mass produced crap but with a slightly spicy, toasted caramel note.
It’s taste is a lot of sweet, starchy malt up front with a subtle spicy, hop bite at the finish. As it warms, some toasted malt and toffee comes out, and the bitter finish becomes a little more pronounced. It has a thin, watery body.
Overall, I could see this as a good transition beer, or something to drink if there was nothing better available. It kind of reminds me of a beefed up Dos Equis Amber. It’s too sweet for me.

bottle-pours an orange hue with small white head. mild carbonation. Malty sweet aroma slight citrus with some earthy hops as well. Flavors are similar, just not as strong. all the flavor up front with no finish. boring and unbalanced. Very biting bitterness also, which was not good. This tastes more like an ESB than an Amber.

Bottle from Rockies Brewing Company. Clear orange appearance, sweet nose full of malts with some orange, wood, nuts, and grape aromas. Very clean and crisp malt flavor, a little grainy, with a sweet orange and bread overriding flavor. Certinaly not bad, but nothing special.

Nice bitterness, medium hop aroma with a hoppy aftertaste. It's a bitter by style. Nice light beer but nothing special. Some people didn't seem to like it, maybe they had bad bottles, I can't find a date anywhere on it.

Amber colour (surprise) with a creamy off-white head. Caramel/toffee malt aroma with some cookie dough as well. Flavour shows good balance of malt and hops. Slightly citrus hoppiness. I liked it.
