COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A brilliant copper color distinguishes this malty light amber ale. Designed as the ultimate compromise beer, everybody will enjoy this draft. After all, why compromise if you don’t have to?

2008-09-06. Darkish amber body with a small white head. Sweetish flavour with just a bit of balancing bitterness and touches of dry tangy caramel malt. (6+) Muted aroma, lightly fruity malt notes and not a lot else. Average palate. ok. On tap at the brewpub.

[1676-20080906] Tap. Mild nothing aroma, maybe something like yeast. Clear, amber red body with quick foamy white bubbles. Grains and light rough yeast flavour with some light fruitiness throughout. Medium body is nice and smooth. Repeatable.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice average drinking amber. Very easy malt and hops balance. Good for the average Joe.

jsquire (3425) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - FEB 1, 2005
On tap at the 2005 Great Alaska Beer and Barley Wine Festival. Deep golden color with a fluffy white head. Sour wet grain nose. The flavor was a quick hit a grain astringency followed by apple and pear fruitiness with a soft bitter finish. Nice session beer.

aracauna (3055) - Georgia, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Clear copper with a light head. Sofy malty aroma. Caramel and a touch of tea, perhaps a litte light brown sugar. Definitely not up to par with their regular amber, this is still a good session beer.

DarkElf (3033) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 1, 2004
(Draft: Moose’s Tooth Brewing Company in Anchorage AK) Malty, grainy, lightly sweet, moderately bitter, and overall just nothing to get excited about; The nose is malty, lightly carmel, semi-sweet; Medium bodied with a fairly carbonated mouthfeel; Light amber color; The off-white head is mostly just a rim on the pour

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - AUG 1, 2008
On tap at The Moose’s Tooth. This is a good, mellow, easy drinking beer. Nothing out of the ordinary as far as Ambers go. Very smooth and consistent. My wife’s favorite Moose’s Tooth ale.
