From a pounder bottle. Nice big brown clear pour with a tad of orange red. Smell is a bit cloying but yes, some hops poke thru to the olfactory. Taste is about the same but there is this mild tartness in there that gives it a bit of a farmy effect,not much tho. Some very mild barely detectable carbonation. Ropey and leathery at times, could be a little more well behaved. Will not appeal to a lager lover. Slight sweet medicinal finish. Sometimes I thought I was sipping an ipa. There, you have it.

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.

Patrickctenchi (3807) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Bottle: Cloudy brown with a moderate tan head. Fruit, tree bark aroma. Taste is light, malty......just reminds me of tree-like flavours.... Woody, but sweet. Apple notes, lightly toasted malt. Very enjoyable.

bottle - Pours dark amber-brown with an off white head. It has a toasted caramel malt aroma. The flavor is of rich toasted caramel malt with a solid, bitter balance. It’s medium bodied and finishes with some good bitterness.

troyc (2473) - Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2014
[Tap] Darker amber pour with good head and good lacing as well. Caramel, molasses and toasted aromas. The taste is of sticky caramel, wood chips, peat and light floral hops. Not getting much smoke here. Good balance, and one of the few enjoyable beers for me in this style. I would buy this again.

tmoreau (2465) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - OCT 27, 2009
Enjoyed during a closed door tasting session in Green Bay with the brewer, Joe Karls. Poured a deep copper/amber with a modest, white, bubbly foam head and light streaks of lacing. The aroma offered some light esters, a little graininess, smooth malt and a touch of caramel. The flavor continued these adding some malt sweetness and subtle hop bitterness. A medium bodied beer that finished pleasantly dry. A solid and long standing offering from Hinterland.
