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.

On tap at Guana Banas in Jupiter FL. Great amber colour. Nice floral notes. Hoppy but not too bitter. Loved this one ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Meh. Reminded me more of a pilsner. Not much going on with this beer if you ask me. On tap at the Marlboro Ranch in Montana.

12 oz. can. Paid $1.90 @ The Beer Store, Nashua, NH. Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. Color is indeed a clear amber. Aromas are citrus hops, followed by the malt: bread, toast, and light nutty notes. The taste is straight forward and identical to the nose. Hops linger very slightly after the sip. Very light body, thin and watery. Overall it’s easy enough to drink. However, I got to say it is very boring.

this beer is nice and smooth, it has a nice balance of hops and malty sweetness. the color is a solid brown amber with a really smooth creamy head. this works all around.

12oz can 12/17/12 (Courtesy of RSRIZZO)-42° in English Pint-Pours a hazy amber with a small off white head. Aroma of malt, hops, and roses. Taste of hops, malt, and grains. This medium bodied brew is not too bad.

Mild aroma and no head. The flavor is a little bit bitter/sour, but not in the good way. Some orange and spices. Not very smooth.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Can. Oh man, this is awful. Stale buttered popcorn smell, very abrasive bite that has a little bit of sour overtones - drain pour.

Pours an amber color and leaves a white head. Has strong citrus taste from the hops much like mild IPA. Almost suprising for an amber ale. Overall, a decent beer. Great if you want something with a little bit of a bite but not as powerfull as an IPA.

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. I’m no brewer but I’ve been told this buttered popcorn flavor is diacetyl and I can’t stand it. I’d try this again on tap but I won’t be buying any more cans, yuck. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 09-21-2011 16:26:08

Barreras (1228) - 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.
