Tonight I have a 4-beer sampler of the Double Take series of beer. Starting light, here we have the Amber Ale. It smells like spilled beer on a hot day. It doesnít taste much better. Round 1: fail.

Transfer from BA review on 6-29-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance- The beer pours a caramel color with a one finger thick white head. The head fades slowly over time leaving a decent level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell- The aroma is bready and sweet with smells of caramel and toffee. Mixed with these smells is a little bit of citrus as well as some nut producing a rather nice smell overall. Taste- The taste starts out with the caramel sweetness and breadiness detected in the nose with a bit of the citrus developing more toward the middle of the taste. Toward the end some flavors of nut and roasted malt come to the tongue bittering the taste ever so slightly. This mixed with an increase in the citrus end up leaving a more off and bitter flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel-The body of the brew was on the lighter side in its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that was rather average. Both suited the brews flavors and profile rather well and made for a rather refreshing and crisper brew overall. Overall Ė A little too bitter on the back end for an amber ale in my opinion, but nothing all that bad. Just alright I suppose.

"Malt leaning color by numbers amber ale. Carmel and bready malts. Light hopping. Not alot going on, for better or worse. Party beer on the cheap, perhaps..."

vulcanmeister (199) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Pours from a 12 oz bottle, a clear copper with tan head. Nose is hoppy, grass, and biscuit. Taste a bit bitter with some sharp spiciness and carmel. Finish is mild pepper and hops. A nice refreshing brew.

DipHead14 (26) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Very little head, but nice and pillowy; light and fluffy. Nice apricot undertone, with a sugary aftertaste. Easy drinking here, and thatís what I like best.

greenhorn1 (816) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle. For an amber style beer, not too bad. Caramel notes in the nose and taste. Some very mild bitterness in the finish and a touch dry. Medium carbonation.

nakedwhendrunk (2202) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - APR 3, 2014
Reviewed from notes. The appearance had an amber/red colored body with a one finger white foamy head that leaves a great amount of speckled spider web lacing. The smell had a decent amount of caramel malts, lightly hopped. The taste was mainly sweet through the malts, dry bitter aftertaste and finish. On the palate, it sat really light, was pretty sessionable, and the carbonation is pretty smooth and decent for the style. Overall, this was not a bad American Red ale, but it wasnít exactly anything to really seek out again either.

maxwelldeux (3725) - Everett, Washington, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a very clear amber color with a small off-white head. Nose is a little bitter, like some hops in there have turned old. I can get a little caramel in there, but itís subtle. Taste is also old and a little bitter. Very little substance, and itís clearly been on the shelf too long.

Braudog (5841) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle. Looks exactly like their "pale ale" and frankly tastes almost identical, too. Yep, itís amber. Very even keeled and clean, with little to distinguish it in any way whatsoever. Mild caramel malt, sweet finish, light hop kiss. (#5393, 12/1/2013)

bergstaden (1311) - RÝros, NORWAY - NOV 18, 2013
Amber with a small off white head - hints of caramel malt in the aroma - Bdoy is of caramel malt with a small hint of hops - Short thin finish - Something is not quite there and it is not interesting at all

Thanks to iNBe. Reminds me of the ales that came out in the early days of the microbrew movement. Decent stuff, not super exciting put very drinkable. Serving: Bottle
