Nate (3727) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2008
From bomber brought back from WA. Buttery notes with tons of caramel and biscuit malt, toffee. Light hoppiness, but mostly a warming malty comforting aroma. Mild fruity. A bit murky, reddish amber clear, with thin off-white foamy lacing head. Medium watery body with light-medium carbonation. Starts fairly dry, with a bit of caramel and biscuit. Decent hoppy character, mild acidity, with good medium bitter finish and dry bitter after. Doesnít have all of the sweet and toffee-like maltiness that the nose would have you prepared for. Nice amber ale.

BŁckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Bottle: Mahogany color with a creamy tan head and decent lacing. The nose is earthy and metallic with a light faded dusty hop note and a chewy spicy caramel malt note. The flavor is tangy with some creamy caramel and light spongy spicy hops. A creamy tail and a lasting earthiness. Nugget, eh? I like nugget.

AmEricanbrew (5840) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - FEB 26, 2008
Clear copper with a tan head. Spicy herbal hop and caramel malt smell. Smooth mouthfeel. Decent flavors of lightly sweet caramel malt and bready yeast with a nice bitter herbal hop taste to finish. Tastes a lot like FS Amber. Not too bad. 597

Goodgrief (1789) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - FEB 24, 2008
June 2007 - Deep amber color with smallish head, little to no lace. Odd sweet malty flavor. Same oddness in the flavor, donít know what it is. Sweet and bitter, pretty good, actually. Very unique brew...worth having. Nice mouthfeel.

doubleo (1433) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 27, 2008
Pours a murky light brown color with a thick, somewhat frothy off-white head that laces the glass as it subsides. I smell raspberries and other red fruits. I also get faint malt smells. Tastes of fruity malts and some hops. Lots of red fruits and berries in this brew. Tastes good. Pretty standard palate, almost a little metallic up front. Subdued carbonation, a bit thick. Not the best red Iíve ever had, but good.

ChainGangGuy (4373) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, dark amber body with a wispy, off-white head. Smell: Altogether light aroma of dark caramel with notes of grains and citrus. Taste: Sweet dark caramel thatís soon scrubbed away by a moderate bitter and a touch of acidity. Spicy, citrusy hop flavors (though more spice than citrus). Hint of grains. Finishes dry with a tea-like bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Very slight stickiness to the mouthfeel. Drinkability: Itís okay. If youíre looking for a decent amber ale then this will scratch that itch.

JB175 (1665) - Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2007
Reddish amber color with an off white head. Aroma is sweet with caramel, toffee, bread, and some piney/citrus hop essence. Flavor is caramelly/bready, candyish, and mildly-medium hoppy - all without being too medicinal. Sweet maltiness and mild hoppiness goes well together, but not quite incredible. For the style its damn good.

A dark amber appearance. The aroma consists of toffee, caramel, and faint citrus showing. The flavor is rather malty with some toffee. A little bit of citrus, lemons and oranges, are in there as well. The finish is slightly sour. Overall it was ok.
