Bottle into an ale glass. Aroma is on the low end but it?s a malt and caramel. Pour is a dark honey with a thick head that dies fast. Taste is a pure malt with little hop but it?s crisp. Finish is warm. Not a bad ale, not to heavy. Good on a hot summer day I?m sure.

355ml bottle. Dark clear amber pour with a beautiful shiny head. Smell is caramel and citrus, some herbs. Flavor is malty, lots of caramel, bread, some herb marmalade typ hop flavor. Ultimately it is easy to dirnk and good beer but a boring one.

adster (427) - HUNGARY - SEP 1, 2014
Borostyán színben tündöklő ital egy nagy adag karamellás, mézes és fűszeres beütéssel, friss, fenyős-komlós illatokkal. Íze kiegyensúlyozott, füves árnyalatú, kellőképpen édes, de leginkább mérsékelten száraz. Közepes szénsavtartalma mögül fanyar gyümölcsök, eperlekvár, kelttésztás jegyek bontakoznak ki. Jól összerakott, apró kortyokban is sokat nyújtó, de vehemensebb, ivótempóban is remekül élvezhető alkotás.

Nice color, and a good choice of a variety of hops. Taste was solid as well.

Good and not bad at all. NIce to drink, easy to enjoy and with a thin shape but with some character.

On tap at The Yard House. String floral aroma. Half inch head which dissipated quickly. Clear amber. Very hoppy taste for an amber ale. Not what I expected ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle 355ml, a clear amber beer with good creamy head. Nose is on fruit hops such as mangoo with caramel. Aroma is on carared malt, brown caramel, medium bitterness, orange and apricot notes, honey, resin and raspberries touch. Good.

Amber ale che si accontenta di una forte presenza di malti caramellati, con uno sfondo evanescente di note agrumate. Non eccezionale, ma bevuta volentieri.

We did a blind taste test between this beer and 4 other amber ales to objectively determine which one was best. The beers were Full Sail Amber, Anderson Valley Boont Amber Ale, New Belgium Fat Tire, Lost Coast Alleycat, and Alaskan Amber.
