Truly an American favorite. Medium bodied ale with notes of roasted barley and a mellow malty sweetness. The Amber's malt character is challenged by aromatic hops from the Pacific Northwest that come through and leave a cleansing floral finish.

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2006 This is a great beer. Strong citrus hops in aroma and flavor. Kind of dark murky copper color with a nice frothy head. Above average amber ale....Rerate... a little less intense, more watery, and more soapy tasting.

Had this one on draught in Dundee, Illinois. A somewhat dissapointing product from Emmetts. Deep reddish color, thick head, somewhat hoppy but mostly just a sweet-sour taste that I didnít really get into. Your standard average Amber but thatís not what Iíve come to expect from this place.

Copper-colored with an unending, large, creamy head. Pleasantly hopped aroma was grapefruit, orange and pine. Hoppiness continued in the flavor providing a moderate bitterness throughout the tasting and left a dry, fruity finish. Unevenly balanced, bumping up the malts would make it truly delicious.

Palatine location. Sweet and hoppy - this smells great. Orange glow. Tastes like a pale ale, but itís pretty straightforward. Smokey-rye quality. Good stuff.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2005 This is a neat drink. Iím not a big fan of ambers (a middle-of-the-road ale at best of times, to me), but I was pleasantly surprised by this clear, deep amber brew with a lofty off-white head. The aroma was controlled by some heavy duty floral hopping backed by a richly sweet malt scent. Very lively in the mouth, this tasted of sweet caramel malts beneath a heartily hopped bitter floral flavor. It finishes on a lingering bitter taste. Good stuff.

Cherry-wood colored with a medium/large off-white head. Hopped, spicy aroma full of caramel and toffee. Rather high hoppiness, with underlying caramel malts, ginger, and candi sugar. Lightly syrupy.

begining is sweet and malty, but comes off a little lacking in the finish. still solid though.

Once again the floral hops are the key here. Its indicative of all thier brews. the hops is a large component of each of thier brews.
