This is a plain, easy drinking session beer with sweet candy and red fruit taste.

Drake (8029) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - NOV 13, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Total Wine VA Beach. Pours a hazy amber color with a medium sized creamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of caramel malts, stone fruits and earthy notes. The taste is caramel and toasted malts, apples, earthy and floral notes. Medium bodied.

shoulderbroken (1909) - Tokyo, JAPAN - NOV 6, 2012
Bottle from Mitsuya’s. Very clear, golden amber colour, bubbly golden head. Aroma is doughy, but of spice, bready malt. Maybe slightly floral. Taste is quite subtle and maybe a bit one dimensional, but quite nice. Bit of caramel, bit of malt. Quite smooth. Just a hint of a hoppy prickle at the end. Quite simple but nice and easy drinking. Maybe it lost a bit of spike in the trip over here, but I still like it.

Oxidized aroma,oxidized flavor, oxidized palate. I hesitate to even rate this, since this bottle is so old.

zgaier (1334) - Coral Springs, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2012
Pours amber with a beige head and sweet aroma of hops. Taste is sweet and well balanced, of malt, hops, and caramel with a long, bitter finish. Simple, solid amber ale brew that goes down easy.

Pours a muddy brown color. Nose is malty with caramel notes. Taste is malty and bready with some hops to it. Carbonation is soft, with a medium texture. Finish is dry with a bitter finish. Very drinkable and simple amber ale.

maxwelldeux (3505) - Everett, Washington, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a moderate white head. A little malty in the nose, but not a huge smell to it. A little bready in the taste, but not too bad. Overall, meh.

rbrazell (1593) - Charleston, South Carolina, USA - OCT 20, 2012
Amber pour with a small white head. Plain aroma of caramel malty sweetness and mild pine hops. Flavor is similar with a quick sweet finish. Pretty boring beer.

edgallow (1941) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 7, 2012
Bottle pours amber with a off white head. Aroma is sweet and malty. Taste is the malts and only a hint of sweetness.

bytemesis (3028) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle @ Lost Coast tasting at Artisan Wine Depot. Pours clear amber with a small off-white head and some lacing. Aroma is of citrus hops, caramel and lightly roasted malts. Flavor is medium sweet caramel, toffee, citrus, floral hops, with some smokey notes. Light bitter finish. Hoppier than most ambers I have tried.
