As everyone put it, a decent beer but nothing to write home about. Pours with little head, slightly lucid beer with an orange tint. The taste had nothing distinguishable neither did the aroma.

beervana (781) - Libertyville, Illinois, USA - FEB 23, 2006
(02.22.06) 12 oz brown bottle received as gift in a trade with Thaichile. Yeast conditioned bottle only 75% full with about 3” head space. Slight gusher on pouring. Pours hazy amber with small white head. Soft carbonation. Juicy fruit esters on nose. Light-to-medium bodied amber ale that starts dry with wisp of malt sweetness and light malt flavor. Slight sharpness on mouth. Finishes dry with light nutty malt and bitterness fade. Slight metallic aftertaste. Thin, watery flavored, overly dry, and lacking complexity. No discernable oxidation products, despite large head space. Borderline drinkable. Maybe an old bottle?

porterhouse (1580) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JAN 21, 2006
(Bottle) Cloudy amber with off-white head. Rotten egg aroma. Some sloppy lacing. Dryish mouthfeel. Tastes fairly bitter up front, then some maltiness. Not really objectionable but pretty mediocre.

On tap at The Great Lost Bear in Portland, ME:
Interesting caramel maltiness coalesces with the peachy fruitiness...The hops’ soapiness detract from their citrusy fruitiness...Well-rounded, with a low but prickly carbonation, a simple, run-of-the-mill amber ale...

I admit that amber ale isn’t my favorite style, and I suppose this was par for the course. Nice color, subdued malt sweetness, subdued hoppiness. Nothing to hate, but not a lot to get excited about. Like every other amber ale I’ve ever tried.

Rastacouere (6162) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2005
Deep orange with a slight haze, faint white head. Straightforward sweet and grainy malts completed by a racy floral hop touch. Quite bitter, certainly dry, brings forth slight nutty oiliness, but remains tame in all its componenents. Light bodied, crisp texture. From average to average.

Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - OCT 19, 2005
Thanks to DavidP for sharing this. Pours a clear light amber color, no head. Aroma is stale and cheesy, some caramel as well. Flavor is bitter, dark fruits and caramel.

heemer77 (5210) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 17, 2005
Poured a medium orange with a thin head. The aroma was Colby cheese with some old toffee. There was also a hint of butterscotch. The taste had some funky cardboard and old tobacco. There was also some light orange peel.

Clear amber body. Slightly roasty cyrstal malt aroma. Bitter start to the flavor (noble hops) leading to average caramel. Unripe raspberry finish.
