COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cricket Hill American Ale is an easy drinking “amber” ale with a wonderful balance of caramel sweetness and hop flavor. The aroma has a slight note of citrus and rock candy. There is not an imported ale on the market that tastes this fresh.

Nice easy drinking beer. Unfortunately the brew was changed slightly from the previous recipe (which I thought was better). However, this beer is always fresh with a mild citrus flavor and seldom tastes oxidized like so many others. Overall an excellent brew at a very reasonable price.

Very good - I was pleasantly surprised. Great color, flavor, and aroma. I’ll definitely look for this one again.

What a nice beer. I met the brewer, Rick Reed at the brewery, and I have to say...impressive.

Pours a cloudy copper gold with a thick white head. Aroma has a strong hint of hops. Flavor is well balanced between the hops and the malt with an unusual sugary sweetness in the finish. Not what I think of when drinking an amber ale...to me it is more like a sweet IPA. This would be an excellent choice to go with spicy Mexican or Southwestern food to help cut through the heat.

Light amber color with a small creamy beige head. Aroma is a little hoppy. Flavor of hops with a little malt. Long bitter hop finish. Thanks to Dogbrick for the trade.

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2005 Update: Tap at Andy’s. I would swear this has been upgraded in aggressiveness. Love the hoppy aroma and malty hoppy flavors. Much improved over first time, very drinkable and has enough oomph to keep you interested. New rating.

Light color. Clean aroma with a touch of hop. Light flavor, with a little hop note in the background. Very drinkable, but nothing there to really seek.6-5-5-3-10

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2004 RERATE: bumping up a few things after a second round with this refreshing ale! ORIGINAL: A solid ale. Very fresh and lively even after having several beers prior. Certainly a good go-to beer.

UPDATED: JUN 26, 2005 At NJ Craft Brew Fest 2005: A solid amber ale. Perhaps their best beer available that day. They should brew more beers.

amber orange, perhaps a touch hazy, with a fluffy white head. sweet citrus and malt aromas. mild bitterness followed by perfect malt. finishes long and balanced between malt and hops, with floral and grapefruit notes. nice body, too.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 7, 2005
Now in DC (12 oz bottle) - Clear sparkling amber, thick creamy lightly tanned head. Great lacing all the way through. The nose was a nice blend of toasted grains, florals, and touches of toffee. Flavor was similar with floral hops and caramel malt balancing each other to near perfection. Full bodied, soft smooth carbonation, bittersweet finish. Very easy to drink, perfect for quantity sessions, and not nearly as bad as the score would indicate.
