3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I tend to get suckered by beers like this-- nice rich, carmely reds that have a blazing hop note or two through them.
This one seems to lack some complexity in that hop note, but it has a nice drinkability. And itís a rare beer than can get oakey, carmely, and hoppy at the same time while avoiding any major missteps in taste or aftertaste. Pretty good.

Pours deep amber into a Sam glass. Off-white head with medium retention recedes leaving spot lacing to coat surface. Caramel and bread aromas. Medium bodied with sourdough and caramel upfront turning to a lasting roasted resin finish.

Despite the warning, I was surprised by the strength of the beer. Poured a nice amber color (as the name would suggest) and started off with nice sweet malty aroma. Very little head. More citrus flavors than I was expecting, but balanced out okay. Pairs well with skinny jeans.

reddish amber with small head. very strong "red" flavor with hoppy bite. seems slightly unbalanced and thereís something slightly off with the finish. has potential, but not quite...

Bottle from ck1 - thanks bro! Pours an unclear reddish copper with a foamy reddish white head, nice lacing. Aroma has sweet caramel, piney hops and some spice. Very nice smelling amber! Taste is of sweet toffee, some earthiness, faint grassy hops and some pine. Finishes sweetly dusty bitter. A very nice amber.

a pretty sweet aroma with citrus and caramel smells. a complex flavor with fruits and citrus the body is a bit too heavy for the style. the finish is creamy with a bit of hops. Overall good but not great.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice lacing with rich rusty color with light white head. Aroma is of bright citrus, light caramel malt and some notes of grassiness. Taste much the same with a more floral, and citrus profile. Solid offering from Lakefront.

Bottled 1st week of May. Pours dark coppery red with a 2-finger foamy orange/beige head. Thick lacing as it recedes. Aromas of mild juniper (gin), pine, some orange rind, and alcohol. The flavor is slightly bitter citrus peel, sweet fruit, and maybe some peach and mango. Decent.

On draught at the brewery, July 2012. Dark amber color. Hop aroma before the glass is even near my nose. Closer inspection has very dry hops. Flavor is bitter with hops as well, and this is one of the most flavorful amber ales I have had anywhere.
