CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 6/22/07: Clear amber bronze color has a thin, wispy-lacing off-white head. Sweet grainy caramel malty aroma has some toasty notes. Body starts fairly sweet and has some earthy hop flavor, but needs some more balance and has almost a soapy floral off-flavor.

Ughsmash (7101) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2010
On tap at Moosejaw. Poured medium iced tea brown with very little head. The aroma was soft with fruits, honey, and molasses leading.. some berries on the back. The flavor found sweet berries and other fruits along with molasses and caramel.. light fruity bitterness surrounded.. odd for an amber. Light-medium bodied with almost no perceptible carbonation on the palate.. not so good.

PorterPounder (5375) - 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.

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 25, 2007
On tap at the brewpub in Wisconsin Dells, pours a clear light brownish amber with a fast dissolving off-white head. Lacing is average. Aroma of toffee, multi-grain bread, some roasted nuts and brown sugar. Taste is creamy, smooth, no carbonation and texture like a scotch ale. Finish is clean with hardly any aftertaste.

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.

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.

badgerben (4387) - 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.
