jgb9348 (4921) - 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.

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 (2576) - 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 (788) - 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.

badgerben (4529) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2003
I can't even remember anything about this beer, which probably says something about its quality. I like the end of the commercial description best: "companion to any of our Pub Favorites," hopefuly meaning food. It's good to wash down things, but not to have on its own.

TAR (2518) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAY 20, 2003
Pale golden hue. Prominent toasty, toffeeish aroma. Faint nuttiness, sweet corn, wood, coarse, leafy hop, light tropical fruitiness, and metallic undertones. Soft, smooth mouthfeel. Gentle carbonation. Predictable bland maltiness and faint hoppiness which is expected of the style. Finishes with slightly abrasive hop textures and lingering toast. Adequate malt profile and hop backbone for this typical, boring style.

Suttree (5317) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 4, 2003
Sure enough, it is Copper colored. Veggie flavors, up front, then a grainy palate and a dry, hoppy finish. Somewhere the was a green bean flavor that lingers around in the aftertaste.
