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."

[Can] Medium shade of amber in color. Not much head or lacing to speak of. Nose is of pine and bready malts. Flavor has a mild vegetal hop kick to it. Otherwise, more caramel, bread and toast notes. Highly carbonated. Almost a soda-like quality to it. Wasn’t great, but not terrible either. Tasting notes from 10/2014.

I loved this Amber Ale from Geneva Lake. It was fresh, buttery, and smooth. Pleasant.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reddish amber pour. Nose of light citrus and pine hopping with toasted/candied malt hanging in the background. Flavor is toasted malt and citrus hopping. Light nuttiness with lingering hops and caramel/toasted malt. This was quite an enjoyable amber. Much better show than the wheat.

Who watchout! Not your typical Amber. I would have rated this lower if the brewer didn’t warn me ahead of time. What a nice twist on a traditional beer. Plesantly suprised!

Golden-amber, white head, great lacing and head retention. Lemon,floral, grain, and corn aroma. Medium bodied, lemony, tart bitterness that lingers.

Bomber. Pours a deep amber color. Minimal head and little lacing. Had hopes for this one..... It is slightly more hopped than your average amber but I just cant get past the diacetyl in this one. Maybe its better on tap, IDK.
