Pours a deep amber (go figure) with thin white head. A lot of lacing is left. Aroma is malty and sweet. The taste is full of malts up front, then some caramel and roasted notes come in before a slightly hoppy finish. Not too bad!

From the one pint olive-brown colored bottle. No matter how aggressive the pour I can’t get a lot of head but it does have a handsome looking , albeit cloudy, reddish-brown tone. The aroma starts out with sweet malts but there is also a notable floral hoppy character to it. In the end it leans more toward a hoppy scent. The body is thin to moderate. The taste brings out the beer’s bitter qualities more than anything else with a fresh, hoppy finish. This is something I’d have more than once.

pkbites (673) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2010
Rather dark for an amber. Nose is nice and warm: caramel and malt. Flavor is warm but it has a metallic taste that assaults it’s overall score. There is a taste in this that is more reminiscence of a Bock than an amber ale. It’s nice, even very good. But the strange metal taste needs to go!

dekester1 (309) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2010
Hinterland tapper was reddish amber with a nice frothy lace. Aroma was of malts and hops. Taste was similar - no non-sense malts with a nice mild-hop wrap follow-up. Palate was decent. Overall a nice amber that’s worth a second, third, etc... try.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 21, 2010
Reddish copper with a medium off-white head. Aroma of heavy caramel, dark fruits, light grassy hops and a touch of chocolate. Taste is very sweet and grainy. Caramel and dark fruits prevail with a smattering of citrus and the aforementioned grains. Just a shade of bitterness. Overall, not to bad, a bit maltier than I had expected, but has more character than most ambers on the market.

brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Aroma was mostly a caramel sauce malt,not a lot of hops like you get in most American ambers lately, flavor again is that caramelly maltingwith a slight background of grainey hops,very different animal then one would expect from this style

wedgie9 (1825) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Tasted on draft at Hinterland. Pours clear amber with a medium white head that leaves decent lace. Nose is fairly simple with some bread malt and honey. Flavor is more of the same with honey up front and moving to lightly toasted malt a very light bitterness. Body is medium with active carbonation and a medium bitter honey finish.

First had a taste of this ale on tap at the Gren bay (Austin Straubel) Airport. Excellent taste, better aftertaste, with fruity head. Now routinely have relatives bring several 12 packs to NJ yearly as a nive sumer treat.
