As distinct as the ruddy lava butte that inspired its name, this ale pours mahogany red and has a rich toffee flavor from caramel malt and roasted barley. Amarillo and Tettnang hops give every sip balance and subtle bite.

Malt: Caramel, Roasted Barley
Hops: Amarillo, Tettnang

12 fl oz bottle. Pours clear and golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is mild caramel and roasted. Flavour has the same, dry and towards breadish yet with a subtle hoppy note. Bitter and mild roasted finish.

Ungstrup (34658) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 15, 2009
Bottled. An amber beer with a thin tan head. The aroma is sweet with notes of caramel and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel - a bland malt profile, with just a hint of fruit from the yeast. The finish is dry and medium bitter.

Draught at Collective on Tap, Woodinville, WA, nitro tap
Dark amber to brown color with creamy head. It’s a good Amber Ale, with caramel flavor, light residual sweetness, some crystal malt, and a good amount of fruity and resiny hops; the nitro kills some of the aroma and flavor; it’s also a bit creamy.

brokensail (16057) - Dublin, California, USA - FEB 15, 2010
A: The beer pours a hazy dark amber color with plenty of red tint. The head is about a finger and a half and white, subsides quickly and leaves spots of lacing. S: There is tons of caramel and caramel sweetness, along with some mild sweet citrus. There is not any real hop aroma to speak of, maybe a bit of floral hops. T: Much like the nose, this beer is extremely sweet. The primary flavors are sweet caramel maltiness and some toffee notes. There are are some mild citrus flavors, but nothing too pronounced. M: The beer features moderate carbonation and a medium body. D: While the sweetness of this beer is not my cup of tea, it is still quite drinkable and is another good offering from Deschutes.

Oakes (15805) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 15, 2005
Copper colour. Earthy-hoppy aroma with crystal malts. Fresh grapefruity hops, hint of crystal. Balanced, tasty. One of the better, and more robust, examples of the style.

mcberko (14663) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
650mL bottle, pours a hazy amber with a small off-white head. Aroma and flavour is quite dry and metallic, with earthy notes, and biscuity malt. Super dry, metallic, and earthy. Not understanding the high ratings for this, but it’s a pretty solid amber.

bhensonb (14165) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 9, 2007
Rich aroma of citrus, arguably supported by malt. Coppery color with a vigorous and lasting tannish white head. Starts with a grapefruit sensation, followed by a hint of malt. The mouthfeel is medium. The bitterness goes on, and it is not overly strong. Just stronger than most anything I’ve had lately. This is really fantastic. An amber? Get out of town.

Tmoney99 (13600) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2016
Draft nitro. Poured a clear dark copper color with an average fizzy off-white head that was mostly lasting and had good lacing. Good earthy hop & toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good brew.
