Amber ody with a decent retaining head. Aroma is sugary with some nutty undertones and faint hops. Quite sweet with a caramel taste and a light hop kick for balance.

Leighton (18745) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2016
Draft at the brewpub. Pours mostly clear amber with a creamy topping. Bland aroma, just a few leaves and lightly toasted grains. Light sweet flavour, very bitter, with a quite odd fruit syrup note, some burnt caramel, harsh grassy bitterness. Light bodied with average carbonation. Astringent and harshly bitter on the finish. Hard to drink.

Keg at the brewpub, 01/02/16. Yay - a brewpub amber ! Reddish amber with a decent light beige cap. Nose is pretty thin ... light fruit esters, caramel, grain. Taste comprises sweet malts, toffee, candied fruit notes. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. The blandometer is pretty high with this one!

phaleslu (9428) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber color with a khaki head that settles into a ring and laces the glass. Notes of mildew, sweat, wet leaves, nuts, wet grass, and faint toast. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bitter, earthy moutheel. Not as mineralic as the others, but also more foul in other ways. Had an old, damp quality that was so unappealing. Also was listed as "Tail Waggin’ West Coast Bitter" - is it intended to be an amber ale or an English bitter? It’s that same lack of attention to detail that characterizes the beers.

Draft - Bitter sweet toffee and hops. Deep Amber with a decent beige head. Malty and very bitter hops with a long finish.

VsXsV (3970) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2016
Draught at Downtown Joe’s Napa. Almost clear deep amber liquid with medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, pine, toffee and raw sugar. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of citrus, caramel and toast. Medium bodied with medium carbonation. Meh. Very bland. Not too offensive.

mR_fr0g (9555) - Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2016
Draft a the the brewpub. Mid amber coloured pour with a lasting greyish loose head. Aroma is tangy tart red berry., nutty malts solvent. Flavour is composed of dirty toast, nutty malts, red berry, bitter, dirty hop. Bland and terrible. Palate is dry and chalky, grainy, highish spritzy. Aggressively bitter and dirty. Dirty.

Homer321 (4325) - Melboring, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2016
Draft at source. A moderate citrus nose with some toasty malt character. A weird malty taste like it was made with extract.

djd07 (10571) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2016
On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear copper with medium frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is faint grapefruit and wheat. Medium mouth, very bitter, bready malt, light, decent.

On tap at the brewpub. Clear amber-copper pour with lacy white head. Aroma is really grainy, sticky caramel malt. Taste is sweet, brown sugar, caramel, boiled hops. Meh.

slight malt heavy which is too bad - I like the hops used in this beer - there’s just not enough. about average for the style.
