AlabastorJones (813) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 10, 2003
Malty aroma, rich amber color, white lacey head, roasted flavor with chocolate/nut notes and a hoppy bite. A different amber, but one worth trying.

DiamondD (38) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - NOV 8, 2003
Pours a medium mohogany. Pretty thick tan head. Medium spicy hop nose with dark malts mixed in. I dont care for chocolate malts in the Amber style. This not a bad beer at all. Its just not what I like in this style. A little to hearty. Bordering Brown Ale, which is a style I never buy.

Appears a golden-red, with a nice head that sticks around for a while. Aroma is mostly bready, with a little cherry fruity goodness. Flavour is moderate - nothing special. Very nice mouthfeel though.

This had lots of flavor, unfortunately, I wasn't crazy about it. To me it has this overpowering sickly caramel flavor. Very crisp amber color. Average (at best) to below average beer.

Slightly sweet malt aroma. Body is very smooth with a touch of sweetness to match the bitterness. Quite enjoyable.

PrinceofNessus (236) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 8, 2003
Quite tasty for an amber ale, The color is a rich amber, and the beer has a thick white head. The smell is slightly of flowers, the taste is slightly sweet and malty with a nice hop complement.

OldGrowth (3058) - the Containment Area, North Carolina, USA - OCT 5, 2003
Draft @ McCormick & Schmicks: Carmel fruity nose. Classic copper color. Clear, little head. Nice malt body with enough hop to sort of balance. Smooth, kinda creamy, clean finish. Nice amber.

UPDATED: MAR 28, 2004 Nice amber color, I often end up going through a pitcher of this by myself, glass after glass. One of my favorite session beers.
