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 (4730) - 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 that’s not quite caramel with grassy and citrusy cascade hops. Malty flavor with some citrus hints and a thin, bitter cascade finish.

omhper (19192) - Tyresö, 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.

Short 12oz bottle. Solid copper color, thick creamy head. Aroma of sweet malt, some light spicy rye, loads of caramel. Flavor is a bunch of caramel malt. Lightly carbonated. smooth and creamy . finishes sweet, with the slightest bit of hop. This beer helped me remember why I love Amber Ales so much. 7,5,8,4,14

Fratto (2590) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 18, 2010

Cavie (3746) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - JUN 16, 2010
Bottle from Mary’s. Clouded amber orange color. Bubbly white color. Aroma of red malts and earthy hops. A bit spicy, but only a bit. Taste is a little dry with some easy malts and hops. Fairly easy going but has a bit of a undesirable finish. All in all not bad.

ExpendableHero (742) - Florida, USA - JUN 13, 2010
Cloudy amber colored beer with a minimal off-white head. Slight hoppy aromas mixed with a bit of caramel. Nice lacing effect on glass. Tastes of caramel, grains, and bitter hops. Much hoppier than I expected with a bitter finish. Thick mouth feel, a decent beer.

nickd717 (3457) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 10, 2010
On tap at Pi Bar in San Francisco. I expected a good amber ale and got one slightly on the crappier side of average. Pours amber (what a surprise!) with a one-finger white head. Standard appearance for the style. Aroma is fairly faint and citrusy - blood orange to be exact - with a little caramel malt. Flavor is not too assertive caramel malt with a large citrus presence. Blood orange and a little grapefruit. Some black tea comes out as the beer warms a bit. Palate is fairly bland and somewhat astringent. Medium-light body. Overall, I did not like this beer much, and not only because it wasn’t over 10% ABV or -bal aged. It just wasn’t a very good amber ale. I didn’t finish the glass because I had to drive and didn’t want to waste my sobriety on this when Supplication, Death & Taxes, and Blind Pig were on tap.
