Growler poured a clear reddish amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of carmel, earthiness, light cocoa and light toffee. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of carmel, toffe, earthiness and light cocoa with a crisp lingering malty finish.

adnielsen (9449) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 18, 2011
On tap @ Liquid Bread. Carmelized, burnt orange appearance. Quite malty nose with a noted toastiness and nuttiness. Big malty amber beer again that’s fairly toasty and a bit nutty. Not too shabby.

BeerandBlues2 (10039) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 6, 2010
Tap at Lb. Pours clear amber with an average, fizzy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (bread, cookie, caramel), average hops (floral, citrus), and average esters (apple/pear). Flavor is heavy malt (bread, cookie, caramel, toasted), light hops (floral, citrus), and light esters (apple/pear). Medium body and carbonation, low warmth and creaminess with a medium sweet finish.

swanmann (627) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - SEP 21, 2010
From the taster; Nice clear caramel color. It’s got mild toasty and hoppy aromas. Well balanced with a touch of sweetness comes through over bread crust with some hoppy bitterness.

Dogbrick (8650) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2010
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2010 Growler courtesy of a traveling beer club member. This brew is a clear brownish-amber color with a medium thin light beige head that recedes quickly. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malt and mild hops. Light body with a sweet malty flavor with notes of caramel and hops in the background. The finish is malty with a short sweet aftertaste. Slightly above average Amber overall.

theisti (3295) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - AUG 5, 2010
Approximately 4 oz sample at the brewpub in Hays, Kansas. Pour is copper golden, clear with more of a head than the other samples. Nice lacing left behind as the glass goes down. Aroma is pleasant cooking sweet caramel, a well rounded nuttiness and a mild hoppiness. Taste is the nose (sweet caramel, nuttiness and hops), combining the flavors in a really fresh and vibrant way. The malt in the flavor is more of the nuttiness of the malt versus the caramel, which I prefer. The hops kick in at the back, and dry the beer our nicely. Palate is light to medium bodied, nice amount of carbonation with the mineral finish. Great amber.

tgenenbacher (6) - Lenexa, Kansas, USA - MAY 20, 2010 does not count
Light carmel pour. Carmel -n- toffee with a very lite finish. Not a bad beer but certainly doesn’t knock your socks off.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Sampler at the brewpub. Pours a see-through medium brown body with a thin, creamy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and remains lightly laced. Aroma is mostly sweet caramels. Some cooked toffee as well as touch of earthy hop backing. Flavor is a little better and very soft. Lightly toasted toffee and caramel malts make up most of the flavor. A bit of nut comes in at the end as well as a touch of herbal hops. Palate is light to medium and smooth. Overall, not a bad amber ale, just pretty boring.

beastiefan2k (2522) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - OCT 13, 2008
Sampler @ brewpub. Clear brown color with a slightly sticky lacing. Aroma is thick caramel malts with just a bit of spiky hops coming through. Taste is of light hoppiness (earthy) and a light caramel flavor underneath that. Easy drinking beer, not weak at all though. Very clean and fun.

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 30, 2008
This is pretty standard for am amber ale. Toasty caramel and a hint of dried fruits, some bitter herbal hoppiness. A hint of nuttiness here and there. The finish just ends after you swallow, no lingering flavors at all.
