Nice malty aroma. Pours amber with very little head. Leaves a little lacing. Very good smooth malty flavor. Nice hop finish. Bitterness linger on back of tongue. Very drinkable. A very good amber ale.

Tap. Clear amber/copper w good carb & fantastic rocky beige head that held up rather well. Good sticky lace. Aroma is sweet creamy malt w moderate hops. Flavor is rather bitter semi sweet med roast malt w moderate hop flavor & good bitterness. Into med bodied. This beer was OK, but for an IPA addict, a bit subdued.

Jonathan3584 (323) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAY 4, 2005
Exceptionally sweet amber. Much moreso than I expected. The hop bitterness is there, but you really have to look for it. This isnít a beer I could drink more than one or two of.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 28, 2005
From a bottle. Pours a deep orange color. Very piney aroma. Hops, pine, a little grass, and a slight hint of grapefruit in the flavor. This is a pretty good beer.

hezron (610) - Viroqua, Wisconsin, USA - APR 9, 2005
Poured a nice amber color with a white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of cereal malt and celery. Flavor is thin at first but lots of grassy-pine hops come through in a fairly bitter finish. Medium slick feel with a dry metallic finish. The hoppiest amber Iíve had so far. Not bad.
