A rich, smooth medium-bodied amber ale. We balance the complex maltiness of six varieties of toasted & caramel malts with the subtle bitterness of Cluster & Willamette hops. A luxury you canít afford to miss. Thanks for your support.

Not a bad amber ale, but it certainly pales in comparison to Bellís or even Mi. Brewingís Sunset Amber. Aroma is pretty weak with some maltiness present and a tiny bit of Band-Aid type phenols. Taste is clean and refreshing, but in the end itís just an average ale IMO.

Poured a dasrk amber color with a large beige colored head. Aroma was grains, nuts and hint of malt. Flavor had some caramel notes with the same grain nutty taste. Moderately dry finish with light bitterness.

Bottle gift from SJ. This is a decent brew. Easy drinking, a bit thin the body for my taste, but the taste is there. Nice notes of hop, nut, candy and caramel malt.

Cloudy amber pour with small head leaving significant lacing. Nice citrus in the aroma. Taste is overwhelmingly bitter more akin to an IPA. Short bitter finish.

Pours mahogany with a thin tan head. Smells of caramel, some fruity hints, resiny. Tastes sweet with caramel and some peppery splashes dominating a bitter finish.

SHANER4 (491) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 20, 2008
12 oz. bottle - Poured a deep amber color with medium head. Aroma - sweet, cotton candy, herbal hops, caramel malt and bubblegum. Flavor - A mixture of sweet and sour flavor. Palate - light to medium mouthfeel. Lively and soft carbonation with short finish with little aftertaste. Overall - I am quite surprised by low ratings. I realli enjoyed this beer and would purchase again.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - OCT 31, 2007
Sampled at Cellarís Wine & Spirits mini tasting and shared by joebrew as Founderís Red Eye Ale. Pours a hazy orange amber brew with a thick beige head that has some good retention. Aroma of caramel malt, some flowery hops wit a slight apple/pear character. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with flavors of fruity caramel malt, some citrusy hops and a touch of butterscotch. Finish is semi-sweet, dry hop bitterness and a slight fruit aftertaste flavor.
