3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can. The pour was a cloudy medium orange with a slight pink hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) off white frothy head that receded slowly, down to a thin cap with a large collar creating some good streaky lacing.
The aroma was moderately heavy of a biscuit malt, floral and cascade hops and an earthy yeast with notes of caramel, citrus (grapefruit) and a mild fruity ester (apple).
The taste was lightly malty sweet with a hint of caramel from the onset, becoming a light bitter sweet with a nice touch of hops and citrus towards the end. The flavor was somewhat short in duration with a light sweet grapefruit flavor left behind.
Mouthfeel was light in body and watery in texture with a light to medium carbonation.
Overall a tasty Amber Ale that was lightly fruity sweet with a nice hoppy feel and a great drinkability...

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at hot mamaís in Eugene Oregon. Appearance is of the standard affair. Nothing too outstanding here but quite beautiful nonetheless. The taste is quite impressive. Kind of has a nutty almost hemp-like backbone with a floral background and an earthy "smell of autumn" crispness. Pretty complex for an Amber. Easy to drink and super pleasant mouth feel. Ambers are one of my least favorite styles but Iíd get this one again. Comparable to African Amber by Mac and Jacks.

9 feb 2012, bottle. Orange with pink tint, clear, no bubbles. Great orange pulp and sweet grapefruit hops, some sawdust, alcohol, and oatmeal. Med body and a bit fizzy. Sweet grapefruit and caramel. Hops are grassy and a twinge butter. Really tastes like a sweet, amber version of their Pale ale

In can at home. Pours a beautiful amber colour with a thick off-white head. Lovely hoppy aroma of pineapple,mango, yeast and caramel. Similar flavours with a chewy caramel malt backbone. Peppery, resinous finish. Really tasty with moderate carbonation and CO2 prickle.

More pale than amber, medium bodied ale. Citrus hops are present, but not over powering. Ashland Amber works as a canned beer, and is tailgate worthy.

Iím not usually an enthusiast of drinking canned beer. Iíll do it if there is no other option, but by and large if I canít have it in a pint from a bar, Iíll go for bottles. This is me seriously branching out.
Good amber colour with a white head with hoppy green tinges. It smelt initially of pineapple coming out of the can. On closer nasal inspection, spruce and hops initially and then a good dose of malt.Flavours are cool and then good mouthfeel and a developing blood orange tinge of hoppy bitterness. It lingers tangily on the sides of the tongue and sits, enduring on my tongue. For all the trepidation of the whole can thing, not bloody bad.

From can. Beautiful golden pour with a thin white head. Aroma is wheat, polished wood, hints of citrus hops. Flavour is sweet, again, malty wheat and barley, plenty of crystal malt here. Dangerously drinkable, generally a very tasty brew.
