VitaminR (540) - Colorado, USA - AUG 26, 2008
Nutmeg caramel nose, some slight hop spice.Crystal clear amber color with a frothy head. light malty sweetness, considerable bitterness. Well carbonated, thinner body, slightly astringent mouth feel, nice balanced finish. A very easy drinking beer with better than average bitterness for an Amber Ale.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2008 There is something about this beer which had a bad effect on me. It is very chemicalised or something I expect. Leaves an unpleasant feelings. Those adverts with the haunted thing seem relevant.

KingGambrinus (117) - Santiago, CHILE - AUG 16, 2008
Clear amber colour with a small but lasting head. Aroma of fruits, caramel malts, grains, and flowery. Malty flavor, sweet, and medium bitterness. Medium body, not watery at all (except by the finish). Well rounded and refreshing, very surprising beer.

Not much aroma, thin, and watery. It was quite drinkable, my girlfriend drank most of the one I had. Not a big loss that she did either.

NeoHippie2 (1068) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 31, 2008
This was a decent brew. Pours a copper amber with a nice head. Lots and lots of roasted malts to this one. Finishes smooth. Not much hop character to it though. However, it is pretty drinkable, has good flavor to it, and isnt too expensive. Worth a try.

hero12 (180) - Minnesota, USA - JUL 13, 2008
Poured a thin head that disapeared quickly. Aroma wasn’t great, a little skunky. Tasted as watery as the lager, but the aroma and palate were better as it was a little smoother.

From a bottle poured a light amber color with a fair amount of head. Kind of a watery beer taste.

This is an ok beer that you can find in mass quantities, worth a try if you like amber ales.

Heathen (1500) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JUN 23, 2008
THOUGHTS: Not much to this beer. Nice and malty, but nothing special. It might have been a little better, if not for the slight skunkiness from the clear bottle. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, medium amber with an average-sized, off-white head that mostly diminished. The aroma was moderate grain and caramel malts and light to moderate grassy hops. The initial flavor was lightly sweet and light to moderately acidic; while the finish was moderately sweet, sour and light to moderately bitter for a second with a short to average duration. There was caramel malt then a little grassy hops. The light to medium body was sort of watery with fizzy carbonation and a lightly astringent and slightly metallic finish.

Well, it’s a bit like a Newcastle with a hoppier finish. The palate is caramel and brown sugar, with the aforementioned hops coming in toward the end. Not bad, but nothing to go out of your way over. Beats the hell out of Grolsch lager though!
