Pours amber with a medium off white head that quickly dissipated. Aroma is caramel, toast and some florals. Taste is sweet with definitive bitters that are not normally present in ambers. Medium bodied, slick texture and lingering finish.

Sour. Red apple skins, peach yogurt, red hot cinnamon candies, alcohol and hairspray in the nose. Burnt sugar. Medium body, sweet, phenolic and acidic enough to ruin the experience. Yeasty yogurt and cosmetic off-notes.

12 oz. can. Pour is a medium amber, hazy with an off-white head. Aroma is sweet caramel, with honey and some sweet citrus notes. Maybe a bit of pineapple. Taste is malty with plenty of caramel, some sweet fruit, a decent amount of hop bitterness. Not bad.

A respectable amber ale is a prototypical summer grilling beer. I can’t say that I was wild about this first experience with Crazy Mountain but at less than $2.00 it was low risk. That said I’d definitely not turn it down at a tailgating party or somewhere else where I was just hanging out with friends.
Aroma / Appearance - A creamy orange base with vanilla head has a gentle presence. Warm woody hops tickle the air with orange glaze and melony cheesecake.
Flavor / Palate - Opening with a pleasant oakiness this slowly warms the tongue and throat. Light pine, orange glo, and traces of wood ash add some depth. This has a reasonable texture. A bit more depth might be nice. Overall though it is one of those interchangeable low ABV session beers that is perfect for when you don’t want a high gravity behemoth.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 Decent amber ale, on tap at the los angeles beer festival, slight sweet aroma. Very smooth in flavor and easy drinking. Not too hoppy or bitter, so a decent amber ale for me.

This beer is your portotypical 3.1. Not much at all. Light hoppiness with notes of water, caramel, grass, and water. Just inoffensive and average.

Wonderful hoppy aroma leads to complex malt flavors. Nutty flavors with an American hop flavor play together very well.
