Never had much luck with organics or ambers. The combination doesn’t do much either. Just plain boring even though it looks sexy. Like the hottest chick you’ve ever seen then you find out she’s a lesbian.

Bottle Oxford Amber Ale. Pours clear copper color with a large frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus aroma. Medium body. Medium balanced malty flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of an average duration. My expectation where met.

Pours a nice copper color with a short-lived off white head. Aroma is a lot of nice malt and caramel. Unfortunately the flavor doesn’t even remotely live up. Very bland boring beer. Kind of thin. Doesn’t do much on the palate and the back end is fairly metallic.

From cask at Northern Virginia Summer BrewFest. Beer pours an slightly darker amber color with a white head. The aroma is sweet, with a nice malt component. Pretty refreshing in my opinion.

bottle. pours a deep amber with a bit of white head. not bad, but kinda blah. not much going on in the nose... just a bit of bready malt - as it warms. a bit thin and watery on the palate.... but as it warms, it becomes fuller. there is some caramel and a touch of bitterness. short lived finish. I would not buy this in a store....

Pours a darker amber color with an off-white head. Aroma is pretty sweet with mostly caramel malts with a hint of biscuity malts and floral hops. Hops come out a little more on the flavor but not that much more. Caramel and biscuit malts dominate with a very slight hop flavor on the finish.

reddish amber with nice white head. flavor is not overly impressive with only a mild malt component and little hop aspect with a dry finish. an underwelming beer
