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.

Ungstrup (29207) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. An amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of fruit - too light for my liking. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of caramel as well as light notes of fruit, leading to a slightly bitter finish. OK, but nothing special.

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.
