Fatehunter's rating

   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 17/20
Fatehunter (2053) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Pours two fingers of head on a hazy medium straw colored body. The aroma is tropical fruit forward (mango and pineapple) with some pine and grapefruit in the background. The taste is nicely balanced. Some pineapple sweetness, a bite of lemon bitterness in the middle and finishes on a little honey sweet note. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. It has great balance in both smell and flavor.

bhensonb (13609) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle from Total Wine in Folsom, CA. Pours translucent copper with a beige head. Aroma: malty, nutty, chocolaty - but not strong in any particular. Med body or so. Carbonation is strong, so the flavors were confused at first - but then it went amber. Not very bitter; definitely malty. Finishing with sort of nut/chocolate - mildly.

A very nutty and sweet malt flavor dominates. Smooth with a long and lingering finish. Pretty average for the style.

DuffMan (8915) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 10, 2015
Bottle. Medium cooper hue, average white head. Caramel with a dry tannic/woody character, moderate pithy bitterness. The label is far better than the beer itself.

IslandHaole (1207) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - APR 14, 2016
Dark amber, clear, good beige head, nice looking brew in the glass. Lightly roasted malt, earthy, hints of toffee. Nutty lightly sweet malts, traces of Milk Chocolate, Caramel ,Allspice & mineral salts, like a Candy Apple, has a mild bitter follow. Certainly nothing to get excited over, I’m not a huge Amber Ale fan but this is a decent beer.

maekchu (3240) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 17, 2015
Bottle from Kumiyama AEON Mall liquor shop. Thin roast malt nose, some fruitiness. Dark brown/amber color, thin tan head. Sweetish malty initial, gets candyish very quickly as sweetness intensifies. Light bittering in mid and final. Thin body, near watery. Thin in all aspects, except color and sweetness. Okay.

Sirmixsomewhat (173) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2016
This beer isn't bad, but I can't imagine I'll remember much else about it other than a "I drank this once" kind of experience. It's s nice color and smells fine, but its smooth taste is about all it has that stands out. Solid beer, not great.

gripweed57 (1283) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 14, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Hazy Amber orange color. Foamy beige head. Toasted caramel malt nose. Slightly sweet, fruity toasted malt upfront. Medium bodied with a caramel apple nuance. Tangy notes in midtaste. Slightly dry finish. Overall, just a pedestrian amber ale.

chriszfat (79) - Lake stevens, Washington, USA - APR 3, 2016
Pours slightly cloudy amber with disappearing head. Aroma is nice malty and sweet. Drinks kind of nutty and muddy. Not a fan.

Amber pour with aroma of caramel, bread, and hint of nuts. Caramel and sweet fruit flavor with bread. Pretty nice beer.
