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.

Interesting amber. True to its description, it has a slight chocolate taste. Very different from other ambers I’ve had.

12oz - thanks Irishboy - Aroma is sticky carmel and toffee with a bit of hops. Pours transparent amber with a huge fluffy head and good lacing. Flavor is roasty malts and hops backed by the sticky carmel and toffee from the aroma. Palate is sticky and tart. Almost a scottish ale in my opinion. Very tasty.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JUN 18, 2006
(Bottle via trade with IrishBoy, thanks Richard!) Pours a hazy deep burnt amber with about 1" of rocky biscuit head. Rich aroma of toasted caramel and toffee, fruity hops, vanilla and malt. Spotty lacing. Palate is pretty thick and smooth for an amber. Taste of rich but light caramel, hops and malt and a fairly bitter finish. Nice rich beer.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 30, 2006
12 oz bottle, Hennepin glass, Noogfest. Brown-amber hue with a medium, off white head. Aroma of caramel, treacle, honey, maple syrup and a floral hint. Astonishingly huge aroma for an amber ale. HUGE, I say. However, the flavor is rather disappointing. In fact, if I rated upon crushed dreams this would get a ’1’ for flavor. But I don’t. Decent taste, feels kind of watered down, light caramel sweetness throughout with a moderate floral bite to the finish. Medium bodied with a watery texture and soft carbonation.

mjg74 (2492) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 28, 2006
Bottled. Pours a dark amber color with quite a bit of sediment floating about. Aroma is malty with some caramel, some hops are present as well. Mildly hoppy right up front. Fairly hoppy for an amber with the right amount of maltiness for balance.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 22, 2006
a decent beer, but nothing to get over excited over. there was some carmel and malt. hops in the flavor but not in the aroma. very carbonated and bitter.

brianprentiss (675) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 9, 2006
Very rich, caramelly, malty, toffee, amber. Little head but good lacing, very dark appearance. Leans almost toward Stout range. Interesting and good, would buy a single again, not sure about a six pack.

bu11zeye (11942) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 8, 2006
(Bottle) Pours a lightly cloudy dark amber body with a medium-sized off-white head. Aroma of nuts, toasted malt, citrus, and caramel. Flavor of toasted malt, hops, and cocoa. A complex and well crafted amber.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - APR 24, 2006
Clear dark copper brown with a thin off-white head. Toasty earthy caramel aroma has some English hop notes. Body starts with some pleasant light crystal malty sweetness, well-balanced with a bittering piney hop finish. A nice, drinkable and flavorful amber with mild toasted chocolate subtleties.
