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.

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.

BritAlesRule (213) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 5, 2012
Pours a nice dark amber. Aroma is subdued floral hop, maybe a room full of potted plants, and caramel malt. Iíll never get Cascade hops no matter how you throw them at me. Beer has good balance, a friend agreed. Would drink again.

Blairgus (2728) - 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

Barreras (1047) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Pours an amber caramel mixed color with a floral aroma. Taste is hop filled, a lot for an amber style beer. The taste is similar to a mild IPA. Overall a decent beer but more of a hoppy beer than I like especially for an amber.

b3shine (5821) - Indiana, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Can to pint. Looks solid; a semi-transparent burnt-orange with thin white lacing. Smells sweet and malty. Tastes like it smells with some hoppiness too. Average on the palate. Not bad, but nothing to write home about.

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.

marcus (6772) - Sacramento, California, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Pours cloudy amber with a decent off-white head and a toffee aroma. There is a floral caramel malt flavor with a slightly bitter finish. A bit thin.

I picked up a sixer of this because the description led me to believe it was hoppy. It was not. Total waste of $9. Reddish amber color, decent lace, looks pretty good. The smell is malts and buttered popcorn, uh-oh. The flavor was more malts dripping with butter. Iím no brewer but Iíve been told this buttered popcorn flavor is diacetyl and I canít stand it. Iíd try this again on tap but I wonít be buying any more cans, yuck. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 09-21-2011 16:26:08

bhensonb (11494) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 7, 2012
Can from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours clear copper with a slight beige? head. Sweet roast malt aroma. Med minus body. Flavor is roast caramel (comes across almost like a brown ale) with some arguable hop bitter. Have no idea what these folks think an obscene amount is, but it doesnít match mine. Pretty dull drink, tho arguably the flavors are not weak.
