COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our flagship amber ale is brewed with English malt, hops and yeast. The extra malt lends a lightly toasted, chocolate flavor, a tawny color, and a smooth, rich character; it's perfect for sipping one or enjoying many.

On tap at Flavor in Half Moon Bay, CA. Pour is medium amber. Aroma is caramel, black tea. Taste is smooth malts then quickly turns to mild bitternes (A bit unexpected at first but grows more enjoyable).

Yet another great beer from Drakes. Somewhat similar to their IPA without the hops. Overall, nice job.

Iím a huge Drakeís fan.... Also a huge amber fan, so this beer could do no wrong! Itís not the best Iíve ever had, by a long shot, but itís a great beer to have that change of pace from the shit beers on tap in most bars.

jkwood04 (3975) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 1, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours deep amber with an off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, pale and caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer.

Aroma is toffee, mild butterscotch, malts and a hint of earthiness. The flavor is toffee/caramel, fruit, citrus and a tart/malty finish.

Full bodied aroma that features malt and molasses. A dark amber color and a slightly thick palate make me glad it is a bit foggy today. The flavor is close to toasted rice and dried stone fruit. And a hint of black tea. Very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cory (330) - , California, USA - SEP 30, 2013
Bottle. Aroma of dried apricot and molasses, dark amber color, light crisp and short sweet/savory taste. Lingering brown rice finish. Solid beer thatís complex enough to be respected and light enough to be pint worthy.

mintzmeet (207) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 12, 2013
Deep malty aromas. Delicious but simple malt with oaken flavors. Lightly roasted with some subtle hoppy undertones.

On tap at the Hilltop. Pours an amber brown color without much head. Lots of hops and maltiness.

12oz bottle from Bytemesis, Thanks Mike. This is an amber but also has ESB on the label so Iím a touch confused, but the taste and aroma lead me more to amber. decent beer but iím finding little touches of sweet toffee like flavors, not sure about that.
