TURDFERGUSON (4043) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2011
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2011 Mucho cans on the disc golf course and one at home. Layered amber with a steady off white head, lots of lacing. Fresh nose of caramel, toasted malt, herbal, grassy, citrus hops. Nice balance, light bitterness, a bit of tea, herbal and citrus hops, caramel. Lots of malt, but not too sweet, and appropriate bitter balance. Wish it wasn’t 12 bucks a 6er.

emacgee (4593) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUN 13, 2011
Thanks turd for sharing. Pours sharp clean amber with one finger of sticky offwhite head. Nose shows toasted grain and a mild sweetness and herbal hop character. Well balanced and lacking in that really heavy caramel character that a lot of Ambers have. Flavor is nice and clean with a very mild and well integrated hop bitterness over toasted grain and light caramel notes. Nice, I could drink on this.

greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 3, 2011
A decent beer, but not sure it’s true to style. A bit thin for the abv, and some toffee/burnt caramel which distracts from the clean hoppyness which makes itself known briefly before being overcome by the malt.

kbutler1 (1378) - North Carolina, USA - JUN 2, 2011
Can. Poured into a tulip glass a fairly clear copper amber color with a 2 finger ligth tan head. The nose has a sweet orange caramel aroma mixed with a slight breadiness. Medium mouthfeel. Starts with a light sweet orange flavor mixed with a some caramel notes. Slight bitterness in the end that lingers for a second. A fairly straight forward amber. Not bad but nothing extraordinary. Some lace left on the glass.

daknole (10848) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 23, 2011
Reddish pour, off white head. Caramel, resin hops, bread, grapefruit aroma. Nice flavor. The malt and hops work well together in this one. I like the bready notes, the citrus hop flavor is great. Good work.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - MAY 5, 2011
Appearance: Pours a very hazy amber with a small head that subsides to a tan film.

Aroma: Grapefruit rind, pine, floral notes, hops and rock sugar.

Taste: Caramel malt, a quick zap of citrus, finishing slightly bready and hoppy.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, sticky, average carbonation.

Overall: An above average amber. I prefer Caldera’s IPA to this.

Cloudy copper with a beige floaty rocky top and puffy lacing. Aroma of lemon, citrus, dough, caramel and grains. Taste is malty with caramel, mild citrus and a mild bitter finish.

presario (4903) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 5, 2011
Can. Dark amber with an attractive head. More woody hops than normal obnoxious amber scent. Soft velvet sweet woody malt and enjoyable vanilla taste. I could drink a few of these.
