Bomber. Poured orangey-amber with very fine sediment in there. The aroma picked up sweet caramel and lesser nutty notes with leafy accents.. lots of sugars going on. The flavor found sweet caramel, molasses, and lesser vanilla with light tanginess around.. finished syrupy sweet and lacking some direction. Medium-bodied and a touch cloying on the palate.. OK drinker.

Tap at Old Fashioned. Amber-tan color, steady off-white head, creamy. Fruity amber malt forward, fruity. Creamy smooth malt body. Nice subtle hop balance. Overall a pretty decent offering, no off flavors. Somewhat toasty. Slightly hazy. Middle of the road.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Geneva Lake tasting room. Amber with a creamy beige cap that slowly dissolves. Aroma if a floral/herbal mix with caramel and mild woodsy notes. Taste is along with same lines with floral, herbal and spicy hope and a sweeter malt backer and a moderate bitter finish. Not bad.

Cloudy copper with white foam. Nice light hoppy aroma with a little malt. Well balanced malt/hop taste. This is a great Amber. Enjoyed it a lot.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - Pours clear amber with a big foamy off white head. Nose is fairly pungent, with citrus hops, bready malt, and some weird buttery cooked veggies. A little bit of spicy hops as well. Taste is the same. The buttery, vegetal malt base distracts from a nice mild piney hoppiness that lasts through the finish. Big and thick in the mouth with fluffy carbonation. This one had potential, but man that weird flavor/smell turns me off to the whole thing.

One of my favorite beers! I always order it in the Geneva Lake area. Not a huge beer nerd but I do try a lot of different beers. You won’t be disappointed with this choice.

Got a growler of this one at the brewery. It poured the expected amber color with minimal head. The aroma was strongly hopped, as was the taste of a spruce/citrus combination. It went down well and would be a good session beer. It’s more than just "slightly-more-hopped."

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from the brewery. Pours a light amber color with an off white head. Aroma is hoppy, pine. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is bitter, pine, malty, bread, cereal, with a light bitter finish. A little more hoppy than I normally like in an amber ale, but nice just the same.

UPDATED: DEC 31, 2012 From a growler bought tonight...definitely more hoppy than your usual amber. Pours a bright amber / orange with thin head...bitter edge to the brew. Could use a little more malt but still one I’ll come back to.

On tap at my work. It is a standard amber ale. It isn’t slightly hoppier or anything, just a mundane amber ale.
