On tap at James Joyce in Baltimore under the name James Joyce Amber. The pour is light amber with a small foamy head and nice lacing. The scent is earth with a slight metallic note. The taste is malt, earthy, subtle hops. A smooth drink with subtle flavor. Not exciting, but better than mass market. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice pale amber which had a full head when poured for me. Tasty and smooth.

oldrtybastrd (3222) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 23, 2006
Pours a light amber color. Aromas of roasted malts, and some hint of fruit. Flavor is malty, slightly sweet, with a bitter finish.

Neutral nose. Pale amber, low head. Slightly perfumed, pine, grass. Ok malt balance. Not that exiting.

UPDATED: NOV 21, 2003 I did not enter this beer--it was already in existance without ratings. I am not entirely certain this is the correct entry--Clipper City brews (as of 11/03) a beer for the bar Boatyard in Eastport which they call "Chesapeake Ale". The bar serves it too cold. But the beer is very good. A lot of American hops in the nose and flavor. A terribly easy drinker, modeled on the really nice Pacific hoppy ales. Damned fine.
