COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in the style of an American Amber ale, this beer is smooth and complex with a distinctive hop aroma and flavor. Its reddish hue is a result of our brewmaster’s unique combination of crystal malts and chocolate malt used during the mashing process.

Dogbrick (7586) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 29, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. This brew is a clear dark amber color with a medium thin off-white head that diminishes steadily to an outer ring. Stringy lacing. Aroma of hops and caramel malt. Light-bodied with flavors of hops and earthy malt, along with a bit of ripe fruit. The finish is malty with a short sweet aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Deep gold pour with off white head and lace. Aroma of caramel malt dominates. Caramel malt and a light bitter. Medium bodied with good mouthfeel make this a pretty nice drinker.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - DEC 17, 2009
Pours cloudy amber with a big frothy beige head. Aroma- yeast, ripe fruit, caramel, dough, apple, overall very lively. Taste is sweet initially with some yeast tartness coming through and a floral, roasty mildly bitter finish. Medium body and soft carbonation. This beer is somewhere between a German Altbier and an Amber on this batch because of the German yeast addition.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 31, 2010
Corny keg at Hamilton Creek. Pours amber with an off white head. Aroma of fruity ale esters. Lighter side of medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavor of caramel malts, with some toasty and nutty nuances, countered by a tamed spicy bitterness. Sort of boring by itself, but a good gateway beer or something to pair with food (pizza, wings, etc)
