BelgianBeerGal (3704) - Panama City, Florida, USA - NOV 10, 2010
Can from Platte City. Interesting amber, in a good way. Definitely a hint of hops but this focused more on caramel and roasted malts. Nicely done and thanks for canning.

Canned@SBWF2010. Golden colour, small head. Aroma is fruits, cardboard, some fruity and floral hops alon with quite big grainyness. Flavour is being quite similar. Quite boring.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - OCT 24, 2010
12oz can, unknown date. Pours hazy red/copper/amber with a one finger off white head that holds a good cap but only leaves a few short-lived spots of lacing. Aroma is some caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, grassy, floral hops, bready and yeasty, touch of citrus and fruity esters, good strength. Flavor is somewhat fruity, pears and apples, some citrus, caramel, toffee, bready malt, fairly sweet, low bitterness. Sweet finish. Mouthfeel is thin to medium bodied, low to medium carbonation. Very good Amber Ale, but not as robust as Bell’s excellent Amber Ale.

Canned at Stockholm Beer Festival. Hazy amber, mid sized head. Soft and doughy, above medium bodied with well rounded mouthfeel. Aromatic and floral, mildly roasty. Salty finish. An attractive, well balanced beer.

This was a pretty hoppy amber ale that had a good amount of bite and tasted alot like what you would get from Dales.

On tap at apizza scholls in Portland. Big citrus aroma in the nose, lots of grapefruit and a catty-like snap. Pours a medium amber, little head but good carbonation is present. Flavor is fairly straightforward simple medium caramel malt and nice biscuit backbone. Citrus hops definitely blend well with the relatively light body. An above average northwest style amber ale.

jgb9348 (5522) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - SEP 18, 2010
Nice crisp amber coloured (surprising, huh?) body with a thin tan head. Aroma of bright hops, grapes, caster sugar, malt and a touch of nuts. Medium-bodied; Strong malty flavours with caramel and nuts very strong and a hoppy finish. Aftertaste shows a resiny hop finish and a strong malt and caramel end. Overall, a good beer - better than most Ambers, but still showing some off-flavours and not such a great finish. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Total Wine in Chantilly, Virginia on 14-July-2010 sampled at home in Washington on 18-September-2010.

Pours a medium ruddy red color, no real hop character, medium sweetness, a little boring.

Reid (2251) - Salem, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2010
12oz can from Lifesource, Salem Average looking amber beer with a OK light tan head that hangs around. Aroma is pretty weak, subdued, sligh aroma of caramel,hay some slight grassy hop taste is the same mostly semi sweet malts..a little hop and watery finish. OK average palate. Not too impressed with this. Very average. Weinhards used to do a similar Amber .
