COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Harkening back to old world brewing styles, Cable Car handcrafts each and every small batch. This Amber Ale is 100% all-malt brewed in the Marzen Style. Rich and malty, it’s balanced with mild hop and smooth flavor. Enjoy the ride!

Note: Moved in 2008 from City Brewery to Genesee in Rochester, NY. Changed over time from a 5.7% beer to a 4.5% beer with honey added.

Decent amber ale, not sure why all the really low ratings, caramel, floral, grassy, decent.

Totally loved the smoothness of this beer. Picked it up from whole foods for relatively cheap too.

I expected better, not just better, but a whole damn lot better. Tasted sweet and blah, no real aftertaste. Nuff said, I can’t recommend.

355ml bottle pours amber in color with a small white head that leaves only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is mild caramel and honey with hints of grass. Taste is predominantly caramel malty sweetness with a mild grassy hop bitterness. Light bodied with mild carbonation. A below average amber ale and not recommended.

rdixon77 (682) - Georgia, USA - JUN 10, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2012 Kind of a gross looking beer. Dirty amber color. Taste was all sugary malts. Not very pleasing to drink. Update: Nasty headache after drinking! Wife says the beer needs to be banned and tested for fusel alcohol dangers!

12 oz bottle pours amber with a white head. Aroma was just faint malts. Taste is sweet malt and nothing else.

Pretty color. Price attracted buy. Disgusting after taste and lacks aroma.

Very disappointed. I was excited for the small batch and the fact that it was next to some good beers at Whole Foods. Did not enjoy it. No aroma and very little taste.

Not what I was expecting, but the best of the 4 Cable Car "small batch" varieties I’ve tried. Pours an amber color (duh!) with little or no head or lacing. Smells like honey and alcohol. Aroma is pleasantly malty with no hops that I can detect.. Has a slightly oily texture. Taste is sweet, and the finish is malty.
