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.

ChainGangGuy (4347) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 18, 2012
Appearance: Pours a hazed, appropriately amber-hued body with a sporadic, stray, whitish head.

Smell: Spiced, caramel enveloped toasted malt with teensy fruit notes.

Taste: Moderately toasty malts with a fair degree of caramel sweetness. Low fruitiness of apricot, perhaps a bit of apple. Light spice accent. Hint of citrus. Subtly bitter. Drying, soft finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: A clean, refreshing, welcome amber ale with a likable ABV.

Gription79 (2228) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 16, 2011
22 oz bomber
Aroma: nice mild fruity hop bouquet, sweet malts, slight dustiness
Appearance: amber, tan head that will not go down
Taste: great malt profile, hops that add a fruity character, nutty
Palate: medium bodied, easy drinking
Overall: I was very surprised that I enjoyed this amber this much. I won’t be afraid to order another one when it is available.

Ernest (6143) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy dark amber, bottle conditioned. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot, flowers, grapefruit), with light notes of mango and black tea, hint of ginger. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation. Well, I’ll be damned. This is quite a solid bitter (pale ale, amber ale, whatever Americans want to call it, it’s an English bitter). Pleasant and enticing balance of cookie-caramel malt and fruity hops and esters, can’t go wrong with that. Clean and balanced in the mouth, velvety-creamy mouthfeel, lasting head, bottle conditioned. Reminds me a bit of Santa Fe Pale Ale. A lot better than I was expecting based on their Elevated/Exponential specialty series, which so far have still failed to impress...kept passing this up in the store ’cause who cares about another fricking amber ale, right? Well, I’d buy this again for sure...4.8% and not priced at the stupid levels of most breweries these days ($4.50/bomber). Good on ya for this one, Epic.

daknole (8851) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Amber pour, almost a white head. Very malt forward aroma, some dried fig notes, and a hint of hops. Flavor is mild but has a good blend of hops and malt.

Toasty malt and orange-y hop aroma. Nice toasted/bread crust malt flavor; sweeter and light caramel in finish. Citrus fruity hop flavors.

kagent777 (6) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - AUG 14, 2010 does not count
22 oz. bomber from Epic Brewing in SLC poured into a goblet. Appearance: Clear amber brew with a quickly dissipating one fingered light tan head. Beautiful color, light lacing. Aroma: I get a toasty caramel smell, with a slight alcohol accent. A little hops in the nose. Taste: While I prefer hoppier beers, this one is that I would drink again. It has a very nice sweet malty character. There is just enough hops to create a good balance. Palate: This is a light to medium bodied beer. The texture is best described as also light, with the carbonation adding just the right amount of acidity. The finish is also middling, not as long as some strong IPAs, but does not fade away quickly either. Overall: This is simply not my favorite style of beer. That being said, I can tell that it is well made, and I would drink this one again.

Courtesy of douglas88. Pours copper with white head and some spotty lacing. The aroma has pine hops, some malts, a touch of toffee and faint graininess. The taste initially is an even mix of pine hops and sweet malts and then moving toward grapefruit hops bitterness. This is a nice hoppy amber.

A nice session beer, maybe a little sweet to be a lawnmower beer. Very good. clean and crisp on the palate.
