JMerritt (1842) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2005
On tap at the brewpub. Dark amber in color with a medium-sized white head. Thick lacing. Caramel, juniper, rye and raspberry aroma is rather light. Definite berryness in the flavor, along with more rye, chicory and a fair amount of butterscotch. Medium-high carbonation.

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JUL 25, 2005
Tap: transparent amber with decent head. Decent bready caramel aroma. Flavor has lots of caramel, nuts and some peach. Decent amber.

ElGaucho (2240) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Beautiful amber color. No visible carbonation as is the case with most of Moosejaw’s beers. Ring of off-white head. Roasted malt flavor with some caramel notes. Very soft. Too soft. No bite. Easy drinking. More alcohol and a hoppier bite would help.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2005
Transparent caramel brown with an admirable tan/grey head. Aroma is honey bread, brown sugar and hazelnuts, although it’s fairly reserved. Irish red-like nuttiness and malt complexity. A pleasant surprise and nice deviation from this brewery’s paler beers. Caramel, toffee chews, pumpernickel bread and a mixed bag of nuts round out the flavoring. Well-executed and modest beer.

SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 30, 2005
Amber with no head. Nose is rusty but barely present. Lots of malts and an almost formaldyhyde character in the alcohol presence. Drinkable but nothing interesting really.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 11/20
JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 29, 2005
Dark amber color with a small off white head. Again serve near sub-zero temperatures. Very light toffee and mild fruit aromas. Flavors of toffee with peaches and cream. Somewhat interesting, but like most ambers unremarkable. An easy quaff.

PorterPounder (5707) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 24, 2005
On tap at the brewpub/restaurant in the Wisconsin Dells. Light copper pour with a decent sized, off-white head, good lacing. No apparent aroma that I could pick up. Flavor has some traces of caramel, mint, and cotton candy. Mouthfeel is slightly thin. Had much better ambers.

badgerben (4502) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2005
Darker amber color with a thin head. Light grain and malt aroma and taste. Slightly bitter. A pretty good and simple example of an amber, although there really isn’t much here.

robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 2005
Amber to Brown Coloring with White Ring. Light Grain..Sweet Malt Aroma. Sweet Malt to Begin With...and Quickly Gives Way to Hops and a Buttered Toast Flavor...Drinkable Enough for an Amber.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Sample at the brewpub. Dark amber. Lightly smoky malt nose. Very sweet: candied apricots, caramel; somewhat syrupy mouthfeel. Good flavors, but overall too sweet and thick.
