A deep reddish-brown ale with medium to full body and a lively hop character which makes it particularly refreshing. This is a much fuller style than most amber ales. Original Gravity 1.058

On tap at the brewpub. Pours amber with a lacy white head. Not a lot in the nose, but I find some nutty malt and citrus. Medium-light body and light carbonation. Caramel taste with a dry citrus/pine/wood finish.

On tap at BB. A bit more hoppy than your standard Amber. Reminds of a poor man’s mac and jacks due to hoppiness and citrus notes. Gorgeous color, weak head. I like my ambers less hoppy than this. Almost closer to a pale ale in my mind. Decent, but not BB’s best offering.

A deep amber color with a nice nose. This was a very nice easy to drink beer. Wish I had this before the Double IPA which killed my tatse buds. This was very flavorful and a nice easy smooth finish.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2006 A lost of citrus in the nose. The hops in this beer really come through, giving a very nice, dry flavor. The malt brings to mind flavors of citrus, giving a nice balance to the stronger than expected hops. This beer demonstrates a nice balance. I think that this beert is somewhat underrated overall. Cheers!

Draft at Abondanza (West Seattle). Beautiful dark red amber in the glass, with a thin (half-finger) off-white head. Not much on the nose, and even with a huge swig you have to work to wrench much out of the flavor; it’s a very mild and courteous little beer. There’s some malt sugar and a bit of toast if you look. But the mouthfeel is perfect: rich texture, big body without feeling goopy, nicely balanced medium carb. A little earthy hop on the finish.

Draught at the brewpub. Clear nut brown. Dryish and lightly roasty with notes of grapefruit. Medium bodied with mellow mouthfeel and slightly inky finish.

Draught at the pub in Bellingham
Mahogany color, light head, light lacing. Nose of dusty and musky (dusky!) amarillo, a bit much hops. The flavor is good but moreso an IPA than an amber. The tail is a bit musky and again, over the top.

DarkElf (3059) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 1, 2005
(Draft: Boundary Bay Brewery & Bistro in Bellingham, WA) Malty and hoppy nose is dry, well-balanced, and quite aromatic. Similar balance is demonstrated in the flavor where a moderately bitter and citrusy hoppiness frolics with the minimally sweet, lightly roasty malts. Dry, clean, crisp mouthfeel from start to finish, and medium bodied. Ruddy amber in color, and again, quite cloudy. Off-white head settles to a ring, leaving many dots of lace on the glass. A bit dry for my tastes, but still decent.

On tap at the brew pub. Fairly dark amber color witha modest off white head. Sturdy malt backbone and fairly strong hops as well in the aromas. Flavors were similar. Hops were citrusy and seems fairly strong for the style. A bit more like an IPA

Would you guess it pours a nice amber color with a slight of white head?? Well it does. Decent hop aroma tickles my nose, some hints of caramel. Tastes rather hoppy, pretty un-balanced. Dont really taste the malt until tthe after taste. My GF really likes this beer, and it is good for drinking.
