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.

mu11igan (133) - Davis, California, USA - DEC 23, 2010
12oz bottle pours a dark brown body with a very thin tan head. Aroma is bready malt with some subtle caramel and chocolate notes. Flavors follows aroma, but also brings along much more hop character. Very nice, complex amber ale. The wife approves, as well.

elihapa (1533) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - JUL 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours dark copper and red. Aroma features a powerful waft of caramel, toffee, ripe plum, ripe orange. Perfect creamy, medium-body mouthfeel. Flavor follows suit, with blasts of fruit-forward hops, pronounced toasted caramel and toffee candy, a bit of earthy minerality, strong flavor finish with bitter undertones. Hoppy, malty, robust, satisfying for the style. As my friend affectionately noted, this is “an amber for beer geeks.”

Barreras (1314) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - MAY 31, 2010
Pours a deep dark brown typical of brown ales. Aroma of chocolate and roasted nuts. Taste leaves you with a mouthful, very distinct chocolate in the taste with a rich bitter finish. A very bitter aftertaste for an amber ale. Overall, a decent beer.

illidurit (2245) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Hazy medium brown color with a creamy beige head. Good head retention and lacing. Bready malts with a chocolatey tinge. Also some toast and caramel. Flavor has some cocoa and toast with lighter orange and butter notes. Sort of earthy and maybe a bit vegetal. Nice heft to the body but not a very clean mouthfeel. Reasonably drinkable.
