Ungstrup (29846) - 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.

fiulijn (15249) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 14, 2014
Draught at Collective on Tap, Woodinville, WA, nitro tap
Dark amber to brown color with creamy head. Itís 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; itís also a bit creamy.

Oakes (12788) - 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.

brokensail (11540) - Orange County, 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.

bhensonb (11509) - 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 Iíve had lately. This is really fantastic. An amber? Get out of town.

Ratman197 (10196) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 28, 2005
Clear reddish amber color with a frothy ivory head. Malty aroma with some fruitiness, maybe melon. Flavors of toffee and some rosted malt with just enough hops to balance the sweetness without being noticable. Smooth creamy mouthfeel. This would make a great session beer.
