Copper with a beige head. Aroma was non-descript. Couldn’t really identify anything as predominating. Very subtle. Moderate carbonation and a medium body. Flavor was a pleasant bitterness and was somewhat refreshing. Nothing remarkable or impressive. Just a decent beer.

Sample at the Brewpub The amber ale poured clear dark amber with a white head and lacing. The aroma was of caramel and toasted malts. The ale was balance between a sweetness and floral hops. The ale had medium body with average carbonation. The finish was clean with smooth tones of caramel malts.

Sampled on draught. Pours really nice, has a crispness to its aroma. Drinks really nice, full of caramel. Don’t taste the malts too strong, but really refreshing.

(Bottle via trade with <A HREF=http://www.ratebeer.com/ViewUser.asp?UserID=3 target=blank>IrishBoy, thanks Richard!) Pours slightly hazy reddish-amber. Five fingers of lightly amberish off-white head recede to a foamy rocky cap. Aroma of caramel, vanilla and pine. Mouthfeel is smooth and shows a nice bit of heft for the style. Very lightly prickly. Flavor is a good dose of both malt and hops - light-medium bitterness overlays some caramel and vanilla maltiness. Lightly piney with a good pinch of bitterness through the finish. Good.

12 oz bottle from Bier Stein. Pours light amber with a gigantic fluffy white head and a lot of blotchy lacing. Aroma of caramel, biscuit, very light floral hops. Tasted very thin with caramel, floral hops, biscuit and some astringency. Not a very good beer at all.
