Can thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours with a white head that fades over and amber orange body. Aroma has a lot of caramel, a bit of tea and faded hops. Taste is caramel, sweet (too much crystal), tea and a hint of berries. Creamy carbonation.

Can. Pours a deep dark copper amber color. Rich in appearance for an amber. Absolutely loved the nose of this beer. It had a lot going on. There was certainly a malt presence with notes of caramel, toffee, and toast, but it was light and pleasant. Hop presence was more earthy than I usually get. Blended in really well. Great presence of dried fruits, raisins, apricots, nuts, trail mix. Soft and subtle at times, but bold in the right areas. Best amber that I’ve had in awhile.

12oz. Can: Aroma of malt, Earth, light caramel, slight brown sugar, and a hint of floral hops. Poured amber in color with a huge, creamy, dense, fluffy, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Clear. Slightly sparkling. A few tiny particles. Good lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet. Tastes of caramel, Earth, slight hops, and a hint of brown sugar. Medium body. Lightly chalky, slightly dry texture. Soft to average carbonation. Caramel, malt, and Earth finish is lightly chalky and slightly dry.

Dogbrick (9344) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 6, 2010
Sample from a can at the "Portland? Psh More Like Beerland" tasting on 03/10/10. This brew is a clear amber-orange color with a thin off-white head that recedes quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. The aroma is malty and has a moderate hops presence too. Medium body with a roasted malt character and floral hops and citrus flavors. The finish is sweet and malty and lingers a bit. Decent overall.

Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 26, 2010
12 oz can from John’s - Aroma of bread, leaves, and a bit woody. Appearance is amber, cloudy. Tastes like it smells. Sort of like a tree stump with some leaves and flowers rubbed on it.

TomDecapolis (4617) - Milton, Delaware, USA - FEB 21, 2010
From a can pours a translucent deeper amber with a smaller bubbly off white head. Aroma of caramel and lightly toasted malt along with floral and citrus hops. Flavor of the same nice caramel and toasted malt, some nuts and the same floral and citrus hops. Bitterness very appropriate. Excellent Amercan Amber. Excited to see this one in PA

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 7, 2010
Can from BofE. Orange amber colour with a white head, Looks very nice. Piney hop aroma. Taste has ash, grassiness, a hint of pineapple, followed by a long sharp bitter finish. Haven’t had a beer for a bit after a chest infection, so this went down pretty well.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - FEB 2, 2010
Dark amber/ruby, thick frothy beige head. Aroma is mild floral hops and caramel. Taste is sweet with enough hops to give great flavor but not to overwhelm. Thick creamy texture, great malt body. Smooth clean finish, lots of flavor.
