RATINGS: 17   MEAN: 3.11/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.08/5   ABV: -
This reddish amber ale is generously hopped throughout the brewing processes. Extra flavor and aroma are obtained by adding raw hops during fermentation - a process known as dry hoppng.

Pours a clear copper colour with little to no head. Watery on the palate, and noticeable metallicy taste. Aroma is soft almonds and caramel malts. Finish is slightly hopped but mostly watery.

Sweet malt aroma with just a tinge of hop, much as you would expect from an amber,the taste however was surprisingly reversed, hoppier start and finish and very little malt taste. Must not be many finishing hops in this tastey enough

Translucent brown with a thin head. Aroma of earthy malts. Bitterness in both taste and especially aftertaste. Slightly sweet, citrus flavor. Medium body and minimum carbonation.

Pretty mundane nose, with some sweet malts coming through. The body is surprisingly hoppy, although a bit watery. Really unlike other ambers I’ve had. Not bad, just more like a Pale than anything else.

DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2005
Bottle. Clear amber body. Not much in the aroma just a bit of dusty malt. More bitter than sweet flavor. Primarly dandelion hops with some citrus influence over a toffee malt base. Dandelion finish. Light mouthfeel, low carbonation. Well-hopped for an "amber" but still not terribly interesting.

JPDIPSO (5667) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 13, 2005
Dark golden color with a tall beige head. Mild caramel malt mixes with wild flowers, thorns and light goldenrod. Flavors seem to match the aroma well. Late tartness distracts.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 26, 2005
Deep rosy amber in color with no head. Aroma is pine, cedar panels, honey and grass. Overall sweet smelling, hoppy and a nice change of pace in relation to their other beers. Taste is bitter and souped-up with some caramel and rye. Thin - we’ve got an understanding of the importance of hops, but in doing so, the malts were forgotten. Citric hiss, some fresh cut wet grass, but overall lacking in flavor. Highly bitter and dry aftertaste.

Juelze (1144) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2005
Aroma of floral hops and malt. Taste is malt, roasted grains, and a bit of hops join the party. Color is reddish-copper. It had a thin and watery finish as well as bitter.

badgerben (4884) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 11, 2005
Amber (duh) color with no head. Slightly floral aroma. Bitter hops in the taste. It’s very dry and dusty. I could have sworn I tasted a bit of bread.

Pretty Decent Ale. Amber Coloring. Small Head. Good Hops and Malt. Balanced Well. Some Caramel. Not Bad.
