5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Bottle: Deep amber, large off-white frothy head, attractive lacing, soft carbonation.   Pale malt aroma, slightly floral, but also a dash of butter.   Somewhat dirty malt profiler, a bit biscuity.   Moderate body, medium mouthfeel that is nearing the thin side.   Clean finish, but the flavor falls off quickly.   Tiz okay, somewhat light tho.

(12 oz bottle: Bottleworks in Seattle, WA) Okay, so this isn’t the best red ale I’ve ever tasted, but it’s still quite good. A fairly caramely and sweet malt flavor is balanced by floral, moderately bitter, lightly citrusy hoppiness. The nose isn’t all that aromatic, but it’s dominated by the caramely malt, plus the floral hops has moderate presence. Standard medium body, but there’s a nice creaminess and slightly oily mouthfeel for a smooth and soft palate. Medium amber and slightly hazy in appearance, the beer is covered, at least initially by an off-white and finely bubbled head. The head fades to a wide ring surrounding a few wisps in the center. Lacing is sporadic, but at least present on the glass. Not as good as the Dark (Amber) Ale, but it’s definitely more than just a generic and boring American red ale.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - AUG 22, 2007
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Bottleworks in Seattle. Pours a clear orange amber brew with a fast dissolving white head that leaves behind a white ring and some lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, some flowery hops, roasted nuts and a touch of green vegetables. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with a caramel malt and slight citrus zest flavor. Finish is slightly metalic, semi sweet with a caramel malt aftertaste. A little light for my favorite type of amber ales but still drinkable.

Looks "pretty". Incredibly smooth drink with an ever-so-slight touch of hops to finish. Wish this was more available on tap.

riversideAK (5626) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2008
Poured amber with a nice beige head that lasted forever. Aroma of toasted malt and a touch of sweetness. Toasted malt in the flavor, mild caramel sweetness, a bit of metal, and light spicy hops in the finish. Quaffable, light, sessionable etc, but not a lot going on.

reebtogi (4375) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 4, 2012
355ml bottle pours amber in color with a finger and a half of off-white head that leaves only a few specks of lace. Aroma is mild floral hops and hints of caramel. Taste is caramel malty sweetness with a hint of roasty bitterness followed by a nice hoppy bitterness in the finish. This beer was light to medium bodied with some soft carbonation. This was a decent amber ale, but just seemed to be missing a little something.

Dogbrick (8660) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a clear dark orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, hops and caramel. Light-bodied with flavors of toasted malt, caramel and mild hops. The finish is sweet with a caramel aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.
