COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The color of a Colorado sunset, this complex, garnet colored ale blends the nutty flavor of roasted barley with three varieties of hops to impart a rich malt flavor and hoppy finish. Medium-to-full bodied with dry, almost smokey characteristics, Sundance Amber is a very sophisticated brew.

Nothing about this beer really resonated with me in any way. It wasn’t bad, it wasn’t good. Just rather...there. I can’t really knock it for much. The beer smelled and tasted okay. Notes of mild hops and caramel malts in both the aroma and flavor. Easy to drink. Pretty forgettable in the long line of forgettable Amber Ales.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Bottle. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Sweet caramel and fruity esters. Light grape, and some peat. Bready with more malt to boot. eh.

VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - FEB 8, 2009
Biscuity fruit nose. Pure amber color, smaller head. Cracker sugar, mild bitterness. Massive carbonation, lighter body, malt finish with a quick bitter snap. Decent Amber, but not much depth.

That1Guy (1934) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - FEB 4, 2009
Crushed with Jakebra. These guys just seem to specialize in mild yet inoffensive brews. Mostly sweet, but an okay hop presence in the finish. Drinkable.

fidelis83 (1954) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - JAN 16, 2009
Pours a slightly dark amber with a 2 finger creamy white off white head. Aroma is toast, sweet grain, caramel, a hint of roast, citrus and a little pine. Flavor is weak sweet toasty malt, grain, bitter hops, and some metallic malt notes. Finish is slightly bitter and metallic. Body is thin and dry.

Butters (3764) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Sampled at the Second Cellar Reduction. Pours a clear amber with thin white head. Aroma is light dogfood, dark earthy malt. Malty backbone with some citrus and hops. Well balanced I suppose, but not that enjoyable. On the bad side of average.

Barrios (1243) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 5, 2009
Bottle with Butters at Second Cellar Reduction. Amber body with a pale tan head. Sweet malty flavor with a touch of bitterness.

Enniskillen (2029) - Salinas, California, USA - DEC 19, 2008
Amber with a thin white head. Aroma is a light maltiness, a light caramel note, faint hops. Taste is light toffee, malt, a wheat light character, mettalic.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - DEC 7, 2008
Bottle. Clear pure rusty color with small off-white head. Sweet caramel malt aroma is nutty with some hazelnut essence. Soft but high carbonation. Woodsy flavors, lots of tree barks. Sweet but a decent flavor with sticky finish.

Oakes (12612) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2008 Bright amber. Rotting fruit on the nose with some caramel. Light body. Light caramel taste, with some crackery notes. Tough to choke back a glass of this uninspired lameness, yo.
