Not usually a fan of widely distributed Ambers, but this was better than I expected. Darker than usual copper colour, Nice malt balanced with subtle hops, a little fruit. Overall, a pretty, drinkable Amber.

Aroma is mmmm citrusy. Soapy. Appearance is a very brown amber with little head. Taste is hoppier than other ambers. A subtle like grapefruit note. Palate is medium body. Overall this is like... Too much. Itís not really malty enough to be an amber. This is closer to a pale but itís too wet and muddled. A solid beer tho.

On tap at the brewpub - Pours more gold than amber with an off-white head. The aroma has roasty nutty malt. It has a medium body with a moderate amount of carbonation. The flavor begins with dry amber ale toasty malt, earthiness and a bit of a dirty taste. The finish is much of the same. This one didnít do much for me.

Nice floral hops aroma. Somewhat generic malt flavour with a little nibble on the palate but a slightly unpleasant palate effect.

12oz bottle from Wegmans, West Seneca, NY. A golden amber pour with a scattering of cream head; caramel malt aroma; sweet earthy caramel malt taste; and thats it. A rather basic amber ale.

Best by date of 08.26.14. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 06.30.14. A: Caramel and some breadiness. A: 1/3 finger head. See through red/amber body. The head burns off quickly. T: Caramel dominates. Bready sweetness and flower are subtle. P: Too bubbly and watery but satisfying like a lager. O: This wasnít complex at all, like a lager. It felt and tasted like a lager too. Itís an older style amber (1989), but itís boring today.

loubar (123) - Los Gatos, California, USA - DEC 10, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Trader Joeís. Nose of malt and yeast. Taste of malt with a little toast, caramel and limited bitterness. Not floral or piney. Sweeter than I expected and not particularly smooth or complex. Overall an acceptable amber ale.

Good ass hops and fresh flowery ass grains on the nose and taste buds. Ahhhh. Always count on full sail for a decent brew. Loads of flavor. Very pleased with this bottle in a pint glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

low caramel and scratch and easy with the butter makes this a pretty decent amber. moderate body with some hop and a bit of fruit. yeah a little spicy.
