AgentSteve (1614) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - FEB 15, 2012
On Tap at Livermore Saloon, pours a bit of a foggy rusty copper with a full, frothy cream colored head. Nice malt nose with slight hop influence. Same in the flavor with a dry slight bitter finish. Full caramel malt without getting too sweet. Nice balance.

On tap at Drakes Barrel House. Pours reddish brown with a decent beige head and a citrus aroma. There is a robust caramel malt flavor with a bitter hoppy finish.

joeneugs (3241) - Livermore, California, USA - APR 30, 2011
On cask at the PP Carlsbad Real Ale fest. It pours orange amber with an off white head. The aroma is malty and hoppy with plums, fig, orange, and grapefruit. The flavor is herbal hops with some caramel, bread, and a potent earthy bitter finish. Some floral and tropical touches as well.

JohnnyJ (4356) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Draft. Clear dark gold/amber, with sticky off-white head. Caramel malt, slightly nutty, fresh piney hops, and floral. Not very strong... refreshing.

tmoreau (2420) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 22, 2010
Cellared 12 oz. bottle, poured to my favorite 1/2 pint sampling glass with a hazed, brownish amber color, decent, tan head foam that lingered long enough, then reduced to film, a creamy ring, and etched-like lacing. The aroma was mid-fruit, some citrus, light, brown sugar sweetness, and a touch of caramel. The flavor presented a sharp bitterness that dominated rather than balanced with the light malt, and remained constant into the finish.

brokensail (10916) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 20, 2010
A: The pour is a dark amber color with a creamy off-white head and some sticky lacing. S: A light hoppiness to the nose provides some definite fruit character and maybe even a bit of woodiness. A strange nose that doesn’t really match up with the flavors. T: Lightly bitter and buttery with some decent hop flavor. Not all that malty, but nicely sweet and not very much of the usual caramel flavors. M: The body is medium with a light to medium carbonation to it. D: This is just a strange beer all-around and one that I was not too crazy about. Maybe worth another try, but not something I’m in a hurry to get my hands on.

beersearcher (2334) - Glendale, California, USA - JUN 26, 2010
Sampled at blind tasting. Solid hoppy flavor to it. Woodsy, peppery notes to it. Pours a medium orange color.

Taverner (1096) - San Ramon, California, USA - JAN 2, 2010
What can I say but a great hopped up (literally, not just figuratively) Amber Ale. Definitely more of a ’Red’ than an ’Amber,’ since Ambers usually mean weak golden ales with some more malt. Pours red. Notes of cascade hops in the nose, finishes clean.
