Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 21, 2003
An average amber ale - malts are on the sweet side, but the finish is metallic, sharp and chalky.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - SEP 21, 2003
Bottle, pours amber with a full white head. Aroma is honey, malts, lemon and floral hops. Flavor is sweet caramel hops with a nice balance of hoppiness and a tangy finish. Medium body and light carbonation. Not outstanding, but nice session ale.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 18, 2003
Dark golden to near amber color with a beige head. Typical caramel aroma for an amber with undertones of citric zest. Dry toffee flavors with a sudden sharpness in bite. A bit resinous and somewhat thin in feel. Another ambe that does little for me.

jgb9348 (4486) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 16, 2003
Clear amber in colour with almost no head. Sweet maltiness with some subtle yeastiness. Short flavour full of malt with a very subtle hoppiness. Once again, not my favourite style, but even this could be improved tremendously. I bought this 12 ounce bottle from Total Beverage in Thornton (Denver), Colorado.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - AUG 9, 2003
Nice copper color,very small white head vey little staying power.Malty aroma,mild amount of caramel hints with an even milder hint of hops.Very slight fruit presence as well in the aroma.Nice malty caramel tastemildly hopped with a brief presence of what i would have to say seems like raisin.The after taste is caramelymildly hoppy and just damn good IMO.it takes some getting used to but this is definately a brew i could sit a drink alot of in one sitting.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2003
Bright copper color, white head, and medium carbonation. Fragrant hop spice aroma and malty background. Caramel malt flavor and some apparent bitterness, however this brew seemed somewhat flimsy after the expectations produced by the firm aromatic hops. Watery mouthfeel and a short finish. Seemed exactly like an American Pale Ale rather than an Amber to me.

GreatStelle (363) - Chico, California, USA - JUL 25, 2003
I had a hard time with this beer. It was unique but not good. The malts and hops were out of balanve and it left a bad taste in my mouth.

jazz88 (2525) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 17, 2003
Bottle. A rich copper color with a foamy tan head. Light fruit and floral aroma with a malt base. Dry with a medium body. Primarily just a malty beer typical of amber ales.

Aggie80 (785) - Michigan, USA - JUN 29, 2003
Very good head that pours with a nice copper color. Good balance all the way around with good carbination making this a refreshing brew. Slight hoppy aftertaste. Vacation 03

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUN 26, 2003
Strange light pale brown with a orangy glow, kinda coppery, looks like a dark honey or thin maple syrup. Finger high head of off-white creamy, bumpy foam. Smells of fresh citrus fruits, not to sour, dull orange and peachy, very nice. Taste is smooth and pale of malt, caramel malt, with a short hop twinge, very clean and mellow. Fairly sugary sweet but dulled, short lived with a small creamy tang, quite enjoyable. Medium bodied, with a smooth creamyness feel, nice. Major drinkability, its one smooth, lighty creamy, yummy, mellowy sweet ride.
