COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Amber is a beautiful red color with slight sweetness and a wonderful blend of hops.

Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Bottle. . Body-amber with a medium ring of bubbles. Nose-diaper, rotten vegetable juice. Taste-flat, peanut skins, wet wood, a mish-mash of bad malt, bad hops, and broken dreams. Why in the hell do people still make Amber Ales? What is the f’ing point? Even the best AA, on the best day, will be a mediocre turd. Stop the madness. Brewers should unite to save precious resources, energy, and time by ceasing the brewing of this awful style all together. Let it go the way of the slide rule.

mar (4663) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2009 Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Amber pour with a cream head that fades to a ring quite fast. Nose of caramel malts and fruits. Great on the palate with a slight sweet malt flavor. Easy finish and a good clean aftertaste.

Strykzone (4483) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2009
Dark caramel color with a small head that does not last. Aroma is overripe fruit and sweet malt. Flavor is malt with black licorice. Some powdery dry chocolate. Very little hop presence.

Dogbrick (7253) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Bottle at The Stable in St. Louis. Pours a clear dark amber-copper color with a medium foamy beige head that recedes slowly. Spotty lacing on the glass that slides down quickly. Caramel malt aroma with some hops and dark fruit. Medium-bodied and sweet with flavors of grainy malt and caramel, along with hints of vinous fruits and hops. The finish is sweet and malty with a mildly tart fruit aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

kwoeltje (2212) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JUL 17, 2008
(22 oz bottle) Deep copper with tan head. Toasty malt aroma. Flavor is biscuit malt, slightly sweet. Finish is a bit wine like, with hints of grapes.

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - APR 13, 2008
Bomber. Medium copper colored body with a light khaki head. The aroma has some grainy notes like Wheaties cereal. There is also some dusty old oranges. The taste has some light tobacco and dusty caramel. There is also some apple core. This is definitely on the malty end for an amber ale, I would say that it is closer to an ESB than an amber. Decent.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - JAN 25, 2008
22 oz bomber bought in St Louis. Pours a clear copper body with a nice khaki head that laces well. Aroma is muted, some toasty and biscuity malts and a hint of vague fruits. Medium body and carbonation. Taste is malty toffee and caramel. Very little hop presence but for an everpresent earthy bitterness. This is my first beer from a Missouri winery but nothing to get excited about.

thegreenrooster (3089) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 8, 2007
Pour is a brown with a average tan head. Aroma is a nice mix of caramel malts and dark chocolate. Flavor is very much toasted malts and a caramel sweetness. Finish is a bit thick and heavy with a lasting roasted malt on the tounge. The aroma and flavor profiles push this one over the top especially for the style. A plus is that the 22 oz bottle only cost $2.99.

22 oz. bomber bottle, no freshness date, sampled in a pint glass. Purchased at the Whole Foods in Brentwood, Missouri. Poured a clear reddish amber with a bubbly, tiny foamy head that quickly dissipated into a fizzy lacing, no sticking that is worth mentioning. Lightly sweet, mildly tart fruitiness is the first smells I noticed, sort of a white grape and tropical fruits. Traces of floral leaves and toasted caramelized malts. Smooth moderate body that would benefit from more carbonation, needs to be more crisp with less of a watery feel. Pleasant sweet fruity taste, once again, grapes and tropical. A mild hoppiness, spicy, ending with a softly bitter herbal leafiness. Toasted caramelized malts add more sweetness to taste. Semi-dry finish, toasted sweet, fruity and herbal spicy. I wish I could be more positive about this Amber Ale, something tells me this is a lot better fresh from the tap at the vineyard brewery. There are enough good things about this Amber Ale that will make me try it again in the future.

Ughsmash (7008) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2007
Bomber. Poured a clear, translucent burnt sienna with a light dusting of white head sticking around. The aroma picked up sweet toasted caramel.. came across a touch candied with just a hint of cocoa.. some floral and perfumey hop accents. Flavor had more toasted and candied caramels with darker fruits.. accented by dry floral and fruity bitterness, especially at the finish. Light-medium bodied with OK balance to it.. left sweet fruit, bitter herbs, and sharp diacetyl at the finish. Solid session brew.
