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 (5609) - 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 (2301) - 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 .

NachlamSie (3251) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Can from BBM. Looks amber fo sho. The aroma is extremely biscuity with a touch of bitter hops. It is an amber ale all the way with a bunch of sticky malt. There is a crap ton of biscuit flavor. Not real bad but too sticky to be a standby session brew. I’ll be sticking with Caldera’s IPA. Or perhaps their pale ale.

troopie (2293) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Tin. Poured clear copper with thick white head. No lacing. Aroma of fruity hops, some citrus. Medium hop flavour, not quite an IPA but more hop than a pale. Crisp clean finish. Good on a warm muggy day.

12 oz can. Clear copper with a lasting ring of bubbles. Earthy spice, orange and molasses aromas. Flavor is orange, toasted walnut, molasses and earthy tea leaf. Light medium body is dry and smoothly carbonated. Nice session.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 31, 2010
Can. Poured amber with an off-white head that settled to a ring and left light lace. Toasted malt aroma. The flavor found caramel malt with a hop background. Medium body. Sweet upfront with a slight bitter ending.
