Light golden brown color served with no head. High carbonation again nothing that jumps out at the drinker that would make it stand out in a crowd.

Tap at the brewpub. Pours amber in color with off white head. Aroma sweet, malty and citrus hops. Taste malty and citrus hops with bitter finish. This one is more or an APA then a Amber Ale.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the brewpub. Same ol’ same ol’. Amber is so boring. Mildly malty, mildly grassy, thick and lip coating.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy amber beer, creamy white head. Aroma is quite sweet and malty. Lightly nutty and quite fruity as well. Soft grapefruity hops. Nice fruity hoppiness, soft and lightly fruity. A little bit of very light fruity bitterness. It’s pretty clean though. A much nice pint than I initially expected based on the aroma.

Amber color with the obvious yoghurt-like head. It has some caramel aroma and flavor, of course with a smooth mouthfeel. Simple.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled on tap on 7/15/06: Pours a clear copper mahogany with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of lightly sweet and toasty malt has a touch of graininess. Body starts with some lightly sweet toasty grainy pale malt turning more dry, earthy and bitter toward a crisp finish. A decent amber.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper-amber color with thin head. Nice citrusy aroma and flavor balanced with malt. Hops not assertive, but stand out, particularly when compared to their other offerings
