Garbageman (443) - Lexington, South Carolina, USA - NOV 22, 2012
From bottle. Pours like an amber ale with good color. Aroma was weak with a sweet malt and earth. Taste was bland for an amber. Not enough malt, bitter with no hop aroma, not a traditional amber. Thin lite beer with too much carbonation.

ben4321 (3563) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Trader Joe’s, 11/18/12

Aroma: The nose is heavy on caramel, rather malty, and has some lighter earthy notes
Appearance: This one pours an amber color with a small beige head, and some light lace
Flavor: This one has a kind of unpleasant taste of macro-lager, caramel, and other of flavors
Palate: The body is medium, it feels a little too sticky, and almost cloying, with a pretty lively carbonation
Overall Impression:  I wasn’t a huge fan of this beer. The flavor just doesn’t work all that well in my opinion, and the quality is not really that high. Really not a winner in my opinion.

12 oz bottle. It is am amber beer, and the color is right. Slightly sweet and malty with a touch of bitter hops. A bit soapy though and the hop bitterness is a bit flat.

nearbeer (3432) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 12, 2012
12 oz. Clear copper with a lasting spongy foam. Light aroma of toasted walnut and nearly scalded vanilla toffee. Taste is the same but with a more pronounced toastiness, plus a light earthiness and sour apple touch reminiscent of English Ale yeast. Light-medium body has medium carbonation and is a well balanced, easy drinker.

Barreras (849) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Pours a copper color with a hue of red. Aroma of sweet malt with a slight hoppiness to it. Taste is a typical red but very refreshing and light on the palate. Overall a clean amber ale with a little more flavor than most amber beer. If you’re in the San Dimas area make it a priority to visit the brewing company!!

A private label beer made specifically for the Mission Inn Hotel in Riverside California. A great tasting amber ale, extremely drinkable with mild bitterness. A copper red color with an off white head. Mild tastes of caramel and sweetness. If your ever in Riverside, California treat yourself to this wonderful amber ale.

TURDFERGUSON (3912) - Carrboro, North Carolina, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Murky amber with small tan lace. Nose is sweet, grainy malt, cardboard. Malty, lightly bitter flavor. A little too much carbonation makes for a slick and strange mouthfeel. This is why I don’t buy beer at Trader Joes.

Chudwick (1789) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - MAY 6, 2012
12oz bottle - pours amber with quickly diminishing off-white head. Nose is caramel and potpourri. Flavor adds malty goodness and faint hops. taste is lightly sweet and a little bitter. I’m a sucker for this malty goodness; pardon my high rating.
