Strykzone (6212) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Received in a trade from Hayduke. We shared a bottle via facebook chat. This beer was clear and coppery with a nice head. A rich malty nose that says Irish. A big malty flavor profile that is also grassy and swampy. Light fruit and nuts. Alcohol is also tasted and should not be. Some Graham crackers. Almost no carbonation. Nothing exciting here in a style that is rarely great.

riversideAK (6040) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 10, 2007
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 Aroma is sweet toffee and some dried fruit. Appearance is a darker red than what most would consider an amber ale. Flavor is toffee, fruit, some vanilla. It is exceptionally smooth and easy to drink, but this stuff gives me a wicked hangover for some reason. Good for an amber. More flavor than most.

22 ounce thanks to JohnCoctosin. Red colored body. Caramel and sugar. Nice malty aroma. Sweetness really carries this one.

BlackHaddock (5732) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2014
Three 12 oz bottles after a day in the sun on 15th March 2014. Pours an amber red colour with non-staying head. Caramel malty sweetness dominate the brew in both the aroma and taste. My sweet tooth took to it straight away, hence three bottles from the six pack in one go. A little one dimensional maybe but I liked it.

Draught at Karl Strauss La Jolla: Bronze color, nose of caramel and light fruity hops and strawberry. The flavor is lightly sweet and crisp with hops. Finishes creamy and light, meh.

jgb9348 (5461) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2004
Clear amber coloured body with a small white head. Aroma of vinegar and malt mixed with some soap. Light to medium-bodied; Spicey flavour with some light spices and malt present. Hardly and hops-nothing crazy. Aftertaste clean and malty-nothing else. Overall, a decent amber-not great nor horrible. I sampled this draught beer from Terminal 7 at LAX on 31-May-2004.

ben4321 (5396) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 26, 2010
Location: On tap at the SD Airport, 1/9/10

Aroma: This beer has lots of caramel malts and bread on the nose
Appearance: Dark reddish color with a head that leaves a lot of lace
Flavor: Taste is mostly sweet caramel malts and mild bitterness in the finish
Palate: Medium bodied and pretty drinkable with a soft carbonation
Overall Impression: This beer was alright, it helped me kill some time in an airport. I’d drink it again, but I certainly wouldn’t suggest going out of the way for it. The real impression I have recorded in my notes is that is has a big caramel malt feel.

Medium amber color. Medium head. Aroma is malty and a touch sweet. A medium bodied amber. Malts are nutty and a touch sweet. Hops are slightly spicy. There is a slightly harsh feel to the taste in this beer. Kind of a typical amber. Drinkable, but typical. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is harsh. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
