On tap at all three Elysian locations over the past few years. Pours an almost perfect amber hue for this kind of brew. Small retentive white head. Aroma is lots and lots of sweet tender malts with a bit of fruits tossed between. Flavor is fairly sweet in the malt factory, while also being quite caramely at the same time. A tiny bit of roast is found towards the finish which ends strongly hoppy, and lingers. Pretty good for an amber.

after4ever (5947) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUN 2, 2007
Draft at Elysian Fields. Pours medium clear ruby amber with a moussy white head and plenty of lace. Pretty vacant nose and a modest attack, but a surprisingly nice rich earthy leafy resiny mid-palate and finish. Solid effort for an amber.

harrisoni (12676) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2006
On tap at Elysian, Seattle. Amber/red colour with lasting beige head. Red berry malt and hop aroma. Smooth in mouth, almost creamy with nicely balanced red berry malt and tingly hop to finish. Never a fan of amber ales, but this is good.

On tap at the new Elysian Fields. Dark amber with decent head. Very drinkable amber....just enough taste without being overwhelming. Good hops are balanced well.

Oakes (11874) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2006
Hazy amber colour. Chewy caramelly, earthy, leafy aroma. Full body. Clean, with an even balance that lands on the rich, earthy, hoppy side of the style. Nicely done.
