COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The fiery color and unique thirst quenching hop profile give this amber ale a signature all its own. Hand-selected Cascade hops from the NorthWest United States provide a distinct citrus flavor, while still allowing for a subtle malty sweetness.

aracauna (3399) - Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2006
Dark red with a soupy off-white head. The aroma is a bit of fresh piney hops and a bit of caramel. The flavor is pleasingly malty up front but finishes with an unpleasant thin bitterness.

Braudog (6172) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Draft at the brewpub, 5/5/06: Nice firm head on a reddish-amber brew. Big citric-hop aroma. Not quite as hoppy on the palate, smooth and tart instead. This is a GOOD amber beer with just a kiss of the hop over a solid malt goody.

JonMoore (2058) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2006 Tap at the ChopHouse. Amber coloured with a slim white head. Hops and malts in the aroma. Flavours are reasonably well balanced hops and malts with some caramel. Light to medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Not bad.

TheBeerGod (5854) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - SEP 8, 2005
From a sampler at District ChopHouse in DC on September 5th, 2005. Amber bodied with a hoppy and well malted nose. Taste is hoppy and malty with dried fruits coming through along with light caramel. Body is medium with a mild carbonation feel. Finishes fruity and hoppy with light sweet malt and hints of caramel.

Nuffield (3953) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2005
Deep copper color, rich clinging off-white head. Very easy drinking, not as "NW Style" as they claim on the nearby chalkboard. Mild caramel and a bit of fruit. Simply and easy, plain but palatable, good body. (on tap at brewpub)

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2005
On draught at the brewpub: Slightly hazy, though almost clear, amber with dark copper highlights and a small off-white head. Aroma is mild in terms of hops, has some malt syrupy sweetness and a bit of grapefruit/pine hops, and maybe a bit of caramel. Taste is somewhat sweet, with notes of grapefruit (bitter though not sour), caramel, and mild toffee. Moderate carbonation (right where I like it), light-medium bodied, and a nice balanced mouthfeel.

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - JAN 8, 2005
(draught - as the "velvet") orange-amber. Mild hops aroma. Very hoppy with citrus but had a funny sour taste. Only OK.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 6, 2004
A pleasantly hoppy, but smooth, brew. Not a blockbuster, but slipped down very nicely on my lunch break. Good balance. On tap at the brewpub, Washington DC.

Had this one in Denver. Good flavor that went well with the meal I had. Overall, not a bad selection.

A pathetic excuse for an amber ale. I was shocked that they serve this garbage.
