COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our lightest in terms of alcohol comes in at 4.8% by volume so that malt can dominate the flavor profile. Caramel sweet malt all over the palate with a noticeable “jumping just over the barrier” citrus hop aroma. Surprisingly refreshing for such a malt driven ale. Truly and all season American Amber.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - DEC 8, 2011
22oz bottle from the brewery - had this a couple of times but haven’t gotten around to rating it. Pours a hazy copper color with medium sized light tan head. Aroma is bready and toasty, with light caramel and dry toast, a faint hint of orange peel. Flavor has a firm malty backbone, with medium caramel, toasty notes, and a bit of dry oak. Finish is balanced. This is alright but nothing amazing.

Very nice amber with a lot of lager qualities. Pours amber of course with a small head. The aroma has biscuit, yeast, malt. The flavor has the same with a bit of bitterness in the end. Dry finish.

ben4321 (3560) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/26/11

Aroma: Has kind of faint nose, what is there is sweet, caramel, and fruity notes (maybe a little apple?)
Appearance: This one pours a cloudy dark orange color with small beige head and light lace on the glass
Flavor: The taste is fairly sweet, it is similar to the nose, mostly caramel/ toffee malts, and just a touch tart
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a decent feel, tingly carbonation, and a lasting, slightly dry finish
Overall Impression: This is an alright Amber beer. It was drinkable enough, but it wasn’t particularly exciting. Decent stuff, I don’t have a ton more to add beyond that...
