COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Medium-bodied with an appealing amber hue, this is the First Ale of the Republic. Its organic pale, Munich, and crystal malts create a gentle sweet character that is difficult to resist. From organic Hallertauer hops come a zesty flavor and aroma that beautifully balance Organic Amberís malt profile. The result: Truly delicious ale that salutes organic farmers and all the goodness they bring to our tables.

Bottle, this ale had a clear red pour with some burnt orange color and a few particles in the glass, and made an off-white one finger head that receded, effervescence was a little less than medium with a center stream and a few bubbles here and there, this beer left some spots and fingers on the sides of the glass, no sediment in the bottle, the aromas were light toasted malt and bread, caramel with some honey sweetness and very light hops, this beer had flavors of toasted malt, faint nut and caramel, there was a faint hop bitterness after the finish, the mouth feel was light with soft carbonation, an ok drink.

A very balanced ale. Some mildly sweet malt (caramel, nut, toast) with a bit of a hoppy finish that is not extensively bitter. Quite drinkable and a good session ale.

from a bottle. nice light brown hazy look about it. smell is floral hints and malt. strong initial personality. yes, quite strong. rather difficult for a lager lover. malty alky finish says this must be at least 6 percent.

MadIndian (2410) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Bottle. A pleasant bread, hop and caramel aroma and flavored beer. Nothing too dominant, but hey, itís organic and still has flavor.

Braudog (5832) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Bottle. Dark chestnut-amber with a thin but solid head. Somewhat sour, woodsy aroma. This drinks with a mushy, wet wood base, that near-sourness rearing its head in the background, slightly nutty, too. (#4389, 12/11/2011)

CampesinoTino (770) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2011
Bomber. Amber colored with burnt orange highlights and foamy off-white head. The aromatic notes are mostly biscuit malt, citrus and grains. The taste starts off with strong caramel and bready malt flavors with some herbal hops and pine toward the back end. The body has medium-level carbonation and finishes malty with some slight bitterness and citrus notes. Itís drinkable enough with a decent blend of malt and hops for an Amber.

ROGUE (2099) - Newark, Delaware, USA - AUG 2, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a light amber color with a thick frothy off white head that slowly fades to thin lacing. Aroma is of fresh baked bread, smooth malts, and faint alcohol. Taste is bread, caramel, ripe fruits, mellow bitterness, and a bit of yeast, that is nicely balanced. Mouthfeel is lightly crisp at the start, smoother towards the finish.

MarinaMarket (211) - POULSBO, Washington, USA - JUL 13, 2011
Pours fairly clear orange/amber with a light head and lacing. Aroma of honey & malt. Very sweet honey malt flavor with virtually zero hop. Some graininess, and light follow-through. A little sticky sweet with a slight citrus note. Going for organic? This brew is quite drinkable, but not impressive. Tasted from the bottle @ 55F.

An old rating note from years ago - actually vaguely remember it because it was terrible and I flinch every time I see it at the store. Donít have much more other than "vegetable taste" and a score to warn me off.
