Aroma is of strong mildew and a little malt. Appearance is a very attractive amber with decent head. The taste is more mildew and some sweat. Palate is nice medium body and smooth, quite wet. OVerall, this was a drain-pour.

9/7/10. Thanks, Cavie! Clear amber pour with a khaki head that fades fast but laces a lot. The aroma is huge burnt licorice/anise, which transfers huge into the flavor with a hint of mint and sour. This is very odd.

brenn79 (1498) - Idaho, USA - AUG 28, 2010
12 oz. bottle- Pours amber with a nice creamy yet thin head and nice sticky lacing that almost looks like a spideweb of foam, aroma is malty and mild hops with some apple juice.The flavor is malty, bready, maybe rye, caramel malts. Overall a good amber ale, just not good enough for me to love it, or ever purchase again.

crazyvin (1929) - New York, USA - AUG 23, 2010
Had a thin looking amber body that seemed to lack any carbonation and life, it did however have a nice initial white frothy head that quickly faded to a thin coating. Aroma was of mild caramel malts. Flavor was similar some hops but not much. Palate was weak.

Pretty standard amber beer. Very malty nose and flavors, slightly bitter, but nothing special.

12oz bottle from BevMo. Pretty much a watered down version of Karl Strauss Amber. A light toffee nose with a somewhat malty watery finish.

Fine regular beer, nothing special. Malty and sweet but not quite right. Try Rogue Amber Ale instead.

lipscomb216 (80) - USA - SEP 2, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2007 A fairly good Amber. Has a nice malty taste to it, and a sweet, sort of raisin taste to it. Pours out an orange amber color and has notes of grapefruit and caramel in the nose.

isamublue (21) - Huntington Beach, California, USA - MAY 5, 2006
12 oz bottle. I found this to be too sweet and malty, compared to other amber ales I’ve had and liked much better. No hoppy bite at all, almost seemed syrupy.

Keg. It was a little difficult to see the beer in the classic plastic red cup, but it seemed fairly amber colored. Poured with a white head. Smelled sweet and malty. Tasted some mild hops, caramel, and malts. Decent, better than standard party fair.
