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.

bhensonb (14172) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 22, 2006
Medium malty aroma. Hazy reddish apricot color with a vigorous tan/white head. Starts with a malty sweetness, there’s an interestingly unusual flavor component, then an earthy component. It’s not a typical amber. It’s really quite good. There’s a carob type of flavor in there. Decent mouthfeel.

Bottle courtesy of Beerguy101, thanks again Mitch! Hazy amber pour with an off white head. Aroma of brown sugar, earthy hops and some caramel malt. Flavor of light sweet malt, brown sugar, and a bit of spice. Light body, easy drinkability with a fairly clean finish. Not bad.

On tap at Drake’s. This dark brown ale poured with a nice off-white head. The flavor is very hoppy with a carbonated mouthfeel. Better than most ambers I have tried.
