Dark amber good head. Sweet malt aroma. Sharp hop bite at the finish. Slight floral and cotton candy sweetness in the taste. A bit too sweet for my liking.

Bottle. A copper brown color with a foamy tan head. Caramel, lightly toasted, cookie, light fruits (grapefruit) and floral aroma. Quite nice, actually, for a style that rarely seems to produce a strong aroma. A mild fruit (tartness) flavor with a solid malty flavor, light hops, and a semi-sweet finish.

This amber ale pours a deep copper color from a 22oz bottle. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is malty, hoppy and a touch bitter. A medium bodied Amber. Malts are caramel and toffee, not too sweet. Hops are grapefruity and piney. Probably more of an imperial red than an amber, the malts aren’t as sweet and the hops are fairly aggressive for an amber. It seems to fall more between an amber and an American Strong Ale. Kind of nice really. Good balance. Decent carbonation, Nice step up from an amber. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Pours a nice red with a modest hop aroma and flavor and reasonable share of caramel; while it is enjoyable enough, the overall impression is too close to a watered-down Lagunitas brew to be make much of an impression on me.

riversideAK (6160) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 18, 2007
Aroma is mostly citrus and earth. Pours a dark amber/red that is somewhat hazy. Flavor is citrus hops out front, followed by some mild sweet earth and toffee/caramel. Medium bodied. Went down relatively. Somewhat resiny and dry. Middle of the road.

Clean, balanced with some caramel malt flavor but a pretty unremarkable beer! With the description I was expecting a hoppier brew.

Doughy, grainy aroma with flowery and herbal hop notes; slightly vegetal; sweet, toasty caramel flavor, some pheonelics; nice balance, round, slightly slick palate. A nice amber.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2007
22oz bottle via trade with cbkschubert - Thanks Craig - Pours copper with ruby highlights and a fair offwhite head that leaves a good amount of lace. Aroma is big of caramel, and some candi sugar. Toasted malts and toffee there as well and some pine. Flavor is interestingly sweet with a good amount of toffee, caramel, candi sugar, and some citrus and pine at the finish. Medium body with light carbonation. Easy to drink.
