I liked the malt and hop bite of this beer, strong and robust flavors that stand out, all in all a very good beer.

Nice beer that is all caramel. I loved the malt complex on this one, lost of oaties and sugar, with some interesting but very muted nut tastes in the mix. A fine beer.

Nicely done ale, still produced in small quantities by Clipper City Brewery. On draft it was rich mahagony in pour with a decent offwhite head. Wonderful maltiness reminded me of roasted chestnuts.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Deep amber brown color with a frothy head. Mellow doughy aroma. A crisp hoppy taste at first sip, which fades into a smooth, medium to light bodied malty sweet finish. A pretty pleasant session beer, but nothing special.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep amber copper with a little white head and low to medium carbonation. Smell is of a sweet lager and the flavor is fruity yet not citrusy--perhaps a slight hint of apple or pear. It feels medium bodied and tart on the tongue with a sweet tartness left afterward. This is a pretty decent amber and the fruity hints make it original and quite drinkable.

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.
