fiulijn (14978) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 12, 2014
Draught at Hales Ales Brewery and Pub
Hazy amber color. Dry mouthfeel, with almost no aroma, traces of caramel flavor, fairly bitter and a bit metallic.
This is really the darker sister of their Pale Ale.

Travlr (12255) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Unanimous choice for a drainpour by five tasters at the brewpub in Seattle. Seemed to be flavored by added syrup. Not a nice beer.

bhensonb (11239) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 15, 2008
Bomber from Liquid Solutions. Medium roasted caramel aroma backed by citrus hop - both aromas are substantial. Near mahogany color with a beige head that sort of hung in. Near medium body with mild, creamy carbonation. Fair balance between sweet malt and hop. Lots of hop for an amber. Finishes dryish, and the bitter builds along. Good drink.
