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).

Tried this on tap at Beer Lands inside the Outside Lands Music Festival in San Francisco. Sweet malt flavor with nice citrus hop notes, a well balanced amber. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cryotek (206) - Pawtucket, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 14, 2008
Smells fruiy-flowery, hoppy, sweet, like a light IPA. Deep golden amber color. Tastes very bitter, with a sweet malty caramel flavor. Roasty hoppy taste, emphasis on the hoppy. Dry bitter finish. Not my cup of beer.

UPDATED: APR 24, 2007 A pretty dark amber ale, darker than most. Has a smilir taste to Fat Tire, but I prefer this one a little more. Has nice roasted flavor to it.

3daddict (139) - Portland, Maine, USA - AUG 8, 2005
Poured a light brown orange color with thin head. Getting an earthy malt backed up by a hop aroma. Mouthfeel is clean and light. Malt taste with a touch of chocolate milk that is gently washed away by the hop finish. Awesome Amber.

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. It’s a solid amber, if a touch too sweet for my preferences.

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.

Poured a dark copper brown. Light sweet aromas with a bit of a nutty taste and a big toasty taste on the palate. Finishes with a toasty nutty flavor. Not Not too big on this amber.
