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.

nuplastikk (4441) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 23, 2008
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.

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. Moderately sweet caramel malt aroma. Dark copper body, small head. Flavor is nutty, with caramel malt. Pleasant finish. Very nice.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 18, 2009
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a clear dark red color with nearly no head. Aroma is caramel with nutty notes and subtle chocolate. Taste is chocolate, caramel, leafy hops, caramel, peach, apple and other subtle fruity notes. Medium bodied.

Tmoney99 (10717) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2008
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.
