Poured a hazy amber with a smallish head that stayed aroung for awhile. Nice balance of bitter hops and sweet malt. Some citris and burnt carmel notes. Pleasantly surprised.

Not extremely tasty, nor aromatic. Taste is nutty, pretty sweet, toasty or roasty (whatever the difference is). Aftertaste is not bitter, but alcoholic.

Bottle. Poured hazy amber with a beige head. Sweet caramel and citrusy hops aroma. Flavor was sweet malt, some orange, and a very subtle hops finish.. Light bodied with a carbonated tingle. Overall simple, but still nice.

Onslow (1210) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 21, 2010
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. SLightly hazy brown brew with three fingers of off white head - seems a little over-carbonated as the foam gushes out of the bottle after opening. Aroma of brown sugar and malt extract. Taste is sweet with hints of molassas and a bit of hops bitter in the finsih. Rather thin palate. A little too sweet throughout and hops is a little unbalanced, but otherwise a very nice brew.

I LIKE IT! Iím an IPA guy, and Amber Ales are my next choice. A good one has a nice carmel taste, with just the right mix of malt, and a slight hop like finish. This one does it in spades, IMO. A nice carmel/malt start thatís not too heavy but, you know you are drinking a serious beer. Goes down SUPER smooth, to my pallet. The finish has a nice little citrus after taste. Subtle - but, itís there. A fantastic brewery (the Indica IPA is a favorite) and this is a stellar Amber.

12oz btl. Pours a copper with a super thin white head. Has a malty molasses aroma. Smooth malty start with a mildy bitter hoppiness then to a candied carmel finish. Not bad.

ante (3374) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 23, 2010
Bottle. Pours out in a hazy brownish amber colour with a small bubbly off-white head. Malty aroma of caramel, fudge and almonds. Medium-bodied with strong malty notes of caramel, toasted malts, nuts and cherry-sweets. Fairly clean mouthfeel. Medium-bitter finish of fudge, caramel, toasted malts and dark berries. Decent amber, this. .

JaBier (5011) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Sample at the brewpub on 8/5/10. Clear amber pour with a medium beige head. Malty character thatís not quite caramel with grassy and citrusy cascade hops. Malty flavor with some citrus hints and a thin, bitter cascade finish.

omhper (19972) - TyresŲ, SWEDEN - JUL 27, 2010
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stovkholm. Hazy copper colour, minimal head. Perfumy pear aroma with roasty crystal malt behind. Dryish with clean, crisp mouthfeel and fairly light body. Mildly salty with fresh perfumy peschy hops, slight notes of paper. Growing pleasant late bitterness. It was real nice to re-visit this beer. If I remember correctly it was one of the first American microbrews I tasted, sometimes in the mid-90s, at which time I did not keep descriptive reviews, just numbers.
