COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This amber is created with the use of choice hops and a unique blend of specialty malts to produce a rich and tasty brew. It is especially unique due to its original flavor influenced by biscuit and earthy characteristics.

Appearance: pours with a 1" off white sudsy heads that recedes quickly. Faint lacing only. Color is a slightly cloudy amber with small amount of carbonation streaming. Aroma: sweet barley malt syrup, toasted wheat bread, some earthy hop spice as well. Mouthfeel: light and watery with a dry finish. Flavor: mild flavor, I expected more in the taste based on the aroma. Bland is the best way I can describe the flavor. There is not much of the expected caramel sweetness from an amber ale. Hard to find something good to say about this one.

Darkmagus82 (1917) - - DEC 2, 2014
Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a clear slightly red tinted amber color with a small head of pure white foam. The head has a very light level of retention, fading quickly to leave a good level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the beer is an odd mix of sweet and somewhat gristy wheaty smells. The sweet is of a more caramel nature with the wheaty smells having hints of a more hay-like nature mixed within. A little bit of fruity peach and apricot smell as there as well as well as a little bit of a spent grain smell. Overall, not really an all that pleasant mix of smells. Taste – The taste begins with a mix of a sweeter fruit and caramel taste along with a little bit of light roasted malt and bready flavor. The sweeter fruit flavors are a mix of cherry and plum, but these are light in comparison to the caramel. As the taste moves forward, the caramel grows more intense and is joined by a more buttery toffee flavor at the expense of the fruit. A little bit of a more woody and slightly gristy spent grain flavor come to the tongue at the end, leaving a rather oddly sweet, woody, and slightly stale grainy taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the average side for a brew of 5.5 % abv with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. A decent feel for the odd mix of flavors, but nothing too special. Overall – Nothing too great here in my opinion. A little to gristy and stale tasting with a rather odd mix of flavors. It lacks balance, so not really one I would want to go to again.

Reddish/brown pour with a light brown fading head. Slight hop/grassy aroma. Slight pilsner finish on this amber, but its tasty and goes down easy.
