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.

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.

Bitter hoppy malty toasty. Most ambers are big on the caramel and pretty mellow. Not this one!

cduncan14 (138) - Sandy Springs, Georgia, USA - APR 3, 2013
Poured from draft to a pint. Way darker that a typical amber. Creamy brown head that sticks around for a while. Tons of caramel malt on the nose. A solid amber, but I wish it were a tad less sweet. Itís a solid amber, if a touch too sweet for my preferences.

Pours a dark amber color with a one finger tan head. Smells strongly of malts and some toffee, caramel and hop aromas. Tastes of malts and caramel with some hop bite. Slight bitter finish. Medium body and decent carbonation. Overall a great amber/esb style ale.

This beer pours a dark brownish red color. It has a thick copper tinged head which sticks around very well. It has a malt aroma and has a nice bitterness which is balanced well with a smoky malt flavor. This is a very well done beer all around. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

lusikka (6343) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2012
Draught @ Pacific Coast Brewing Company, Oakland. Rated on 19.10.2012.
Pours an amber colour with a white head. Aroma of toasted malts, dry grassy notes and some earth. Flavour is rather rich with toasted malts, strong grassy hops, earth and subtle caramel sweetness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a bitter, slightly sweet finish. Enjoyable.
