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.

Pours a nice dark amber. Aroma is subdued floral hop, maybe a room full of potted plants, and caramel malt. I’ll never get Cascade hops no matter how you throw them at me. Beer has good balance, a friend agreed. Would drink again.

Sampled on 9/30/2102. This amber ale pours a medium amber color from a 12oz can. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel, fruity and sweet, some hops. A medium bodied amber ale. The malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Decent carbonation. A fairly standard amber ale. There is a bit of lingering bitterness at the finish. A little crisp at the finish as well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Copper/mahogany pour with a slight haze, medium head and ok lace. Bready malt aromas with a hint of floral hops. Flavor is mostly toasted malt, with some caramel sweetness and a touch of hops bitterness. Medium body and carbonation, and a clean finish.

Blairgus (2537) - California, USA - SEP 13, 2012
13 sept 2012, can. Light amber/slightly orange, clear, some steady bubbles. Nose is slightly dark toast at first followed by faint chlorine and harsh grapefruit runs hops. Thin body and fizzy. Tastes surprisingly different. Bubblegum and orange juice citrus with faint toasty malt. Pretty nice, though not what I'd call an amber. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

dimenhetfield (2487) - , Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2012
12oz can poured into glass. Light amber color with a thin fluffy head. Aroma carries hints of earthy hops, malts and wheat bread. Flavor is mostly malty but not overly sweet. Very drinkable but nothing super special.

dwfresh (1) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 2, 2012 does not count
easily one of the best Amber Ales I have ever had. and a little bit of hoppiness to it, but not too much.

jbruner (2135) - Athens, Georgia, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Pours a dark amber on tap with thin off-white head and moderate lacing. Aroma is very faint of rye and chocolate malts. Taste is all those malts beefed up with some roasted nut and toffee extra. It’s decent, but nothing special.

rayOfBeer (656) - El Cerrito, California, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Can: amber with off-white small head. Aroma is bisquity malt and slightly piney hops. Flavor is bread, light pine, a little caramel and tea. Palate has a light sweetness with a dusty bitterness and is rather flat. Ok flavor, more bitter than expected and lacking in carbonation make this beer mediocre.
