(Contract-brewed version, Sand Creek Brewery) Picked up a couple singles in Galena while passing through. No freshness date on the bottle. Into an 8 oz. Hamms goblet, this has a nice cap of white foam, and a burnt copper body. Slightly hazed with slow carbonation rising. The head fades to a ring at the edge. Apple, caramel, and nutty toasted malt aroma. So far so good. Taste isn’t as good, some toasted grain, mild bitterness, with an odd vegetal note. Some huskiness and slight residual sweetness. Light carbonation, somewhat watery, though it’s an easy drinking beer. Reviewed on: 07-25-2010

12oz bottle. Unfiltered glowing orange-brown. Respectable steady off-white head. Chewy, medium to full bodied. Fruity amber malt tones,cherrywood, nice malt depth. Not really a style I am fond of, but I think an Amber fan would find this quite enjoyable. OK.

Tap at the brewpub. Orange amber pour with a white head. Bread and caramel, slight hop - just okay.

12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a slightly cloudy dark amber with a finger off white head. Aroma of light caramel, light fruit and light hops. Taste is light bitter. Caramel, grains and floral hops. Light bodied with a relatively thin texturr. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, decent. Great sessionable summertime brew.

Pours a cloudy brown amber with good long lasting head as the aroma of wheat and spices tickle your nose. Has a smooth mellow taste that is quite full in texture. Great blend of wheat and malts. Has a great full taste but at the same time is kind of bland since no ingredient really stands out too much. Definitely worth a try!

Aroma is sweetish malts, mild earthiness and some grit. The flavor is malts, mild sweetness and a hint of tea in the finish.

From a bottle bought at the brewery.Amber color.Not much head.Frothy ring.Bits of lacing not much. Aroma is some light carmel toasty bready,slightly yeasty,mineral,Little bit of fruit/hops. Taste is mildy carmel sweet light grain/mildly bready.Mild nuttyness.Pretty much matches the description well,im enjoying this more than i liked the flight sampler which is odd because i liked the others on tap rather than bottle.Differnt batches do different things i guess. Prettty smooth overall,some mild esters but great drinability, nice mild citrus on the finish finishing well. Pretty good.Wish i had another.I like the way this one finishes up.Good solid mild amber. I like a little more bitterness but no complaints here.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours hazy amber with small whitish head. The aroma is caramel, some light fruity hops. Flavor is bland caramel with some fruit notes, a dusty hint, slight grain, and pine.

tmoreau (2562) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - SEP 3, 2011
12 oz. bottle poured to a shaker with a clear, copper color, and a decent amount of silky, cream colored head foam that lingered for awhile while depositing wavy lacing on the interior. The nose was light grain, and light toast & caramel notes. The flavor contributed some smooth, but non- hefty malt, and low hop bitterness. Not a strong version of the style, but well carbonated, light to medium bodied, and sessionable.

4oz pour at the brewery. Lightly sweet caramel malt with light bitterness to finish. Smooth, lightly fruity, and sessionable. But, ultimately quite bland.
