COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This delightfully floral American style Amber Ale displays a wonderful balance while still maintaining a profound hoppy goodness. We load this beer with a ridiculous and obscene amount of West Coast hops that are added late in the boil resulting in a hoppy beer without any bitterness.

From the can, amber pour, Some Hoppiness and malty flavors. It's a nice and simple beer, earthy finish. Still good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A lot of breweries are straying from the original malty American amber and are putting out ambers that are just slightly darker APAs. While these are good, It’s nice to see some folks are still doing it the old fashioned way. This is a nice, full bodied malt accented brew. There is a touch of floral hop character in the nose but very little bitterness in the finish. A nice, creamy texture keeps it easily drinkable and the relatively high level of sweetness never cloys. Overall, it works quite well.

Pours amber with minimal head. Slight caramel aroma, but not much else. Not much to taste either: a bit of roastiness and an inappropriate amount of hop bitterness. Bit too carbonated for my taste. Bitter finish.

Poured from a bottle to cup. Beer is a amber orange in color and clear. Would drink again.

Can. Pours a clear amber color with very little head on it. Nose is quite toasty and malt forward. Taste has the same toasty elements with just a slight hint of sweetness on the back end. Light and easy to drink, just not overly flavorful.

12 oz can. Pours a hazy amber color with small creamy tan head. Aroma is mostly caramel malt, maybe just a bit of pine or spruce in there as well. Chocolate notes in the flavor. Decent.

thome50 (1046) - Boringville aka Irvine, California, USA - MAR 29, 2013
Can leftover from someone at RATXIII. Pours an amber with minimal white head. Aroma is off hops, caramel that has melted them left to rot. Taste is bland to gross levels of yard waste.

Scipio (708) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - FEB 21, 2013
Pours an amber with a thin, off white head. Aroma has floral hops, caramel, and nuts. The taste is heavy on malts. Mostly caramel, and there is a good deal of bread as well. Some cereal flavor. There is a slight pine flavor as well. Short and weak aftertaste of caramel with a hint of pine. Light in body with decent carbonation. Not much more going on here. Pretty basic and unimpressive.

ccex (931) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 20, 2013
12 oz can pours a clear medium amber color with moderate white head but hardly any lacing. Delightful aroma is full of floral hops, butter, bread and a bit of resin. Taste is slightly sweet without the bitter finish that I had expected from something so hoppy flavored. Body is light to medium without too much carbonation. An easily drinkable, slightly different amber ale I wouldn’t mind trying again.

Sampled on tap at Crazy Mountain on 12/27/12. Pours an amber color with white head. Caramel, hoppy, piney, resiny flavors. Nice drinkable amber ale.
