A different kind of Amber than I expected. Appearance was awesome followed by average aroma in the nose. Malt backbone, while present, didnt leave any trace of mild sweetness that I expect in an amber. Had a little too much Irish red going on, though jailhouse releasing this "summer" seasonal around st pattys day(2014) maybe is what they had in mind. Bottle says 8% alcohol which is bordering on Imperial Amber status which this brew is not. Not a bad beer, just an average brew with an identity crisis.

Tap from Lazy Dog. Pours a hazy amber with minimal off white head. Aroma of hops. Very very bitter up front with not much else.

Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. Reddish-amber color with a medium off-white head and strings of lace. Aroma of roasted malt. Light body with flavors of caramel, sweet malt and a touch of hops. The finish is short and malty. Just average overall.

This is a full-bodied beer that is sweet and sticky. A bit of bread, toffee, and slightly spicy bananas. Weak aroma. Easy drinking and pretty decent for a red. Kind of funky if you’re calling this an amber ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep coppery red body with a tall, long lasting, off-white head.
The aroma is fruit and light molasses.
The flavor follows the aroma with the addition of some hop bitterness that adds to the malt sweetness and then becomes dominant in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 ounce thanks to Debi. Big malty caramel flavor. Something akin to a brown ale. Lacking the hops overdrive I expect from a big red. I may be drinking this too long after it was bottled and the hops have had some fade. Somewhat tasty finish.
