Block (1520) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 8, 2013
Malty. A little more roasted than I was expecting. Medium body but it feels a bit heavy. Not much in terms of fruits or floral notes which would really open this beer up.

Jumping Cow Amber Ale is a wonderful looking, super clear, deep amber ale that has light, frothy, sand colored lacing. The aroma is mostly of dark malt extract and caramel. Thereís a hint of grassiness. Itís medium-light bodied, gritty and metallic. It leaves the mouth and teeth feeling pretty dirty. This seems to be a focus on caramel malt and thatís the main flavor here. Itís countered with a wooden, resiny sort of bitterness. It picks up some black pepper, juniper and sweetness after the swallow. Itís a loud flavor. This kind of seems like a home brew. It seems a little rough to me. Thereís something unpleasant about the bitterness. Is it soapiness? This tastes twice as strong as it is.

shadey (1916) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 16, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a dull amber color with minimal head. Aroma was lightly caramel and just a touch bitter. Flavors were bland and uninteresting. Iím really surprised that a California brewery allowed this to escape their bottling line. Itís not terrible, but it is far too boring.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2012 Location/Date:Bottle on December 11th, 2012.

Appearance: Pours a dark amber copper.
Aroma: Aroma of caramel.
Taste: Caramel, little bitterness, faint soap flavor, sweet.
Palate:Light body, faint fizz.

Summary: An okay amber ale. Maybe this bottle is a bit old, taste is solid but missing something.

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 (4100) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Location: 12 oz bottle from Trader Joeís, 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 wasnít a huge fan of this beer. The flavor just doesnít 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 (3847) - 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.
