fattybladdy (628) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAR 13, 2014
12oz bottle, pours a robust amber with tall head. Sweet malt in the aroma. Caramel malt, bread, citrus hops, fairly sweet all around. Kind of a unique taste for a red.

Stuedmaster (315) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 6, 2014
22 oz. bomber from a local liquor store. Aroma is very unique, like persimmon pudding with caramel and oak. Nice light amber/ orange/red pour with a creamy white head, leaves lacing. Taste is sweet and complex, with the right amount of bitterness. Has some dough and fruit character. Medium body, thick texture, average carbonation, long sweet finish. A good example of the style with an added level of complexity. The 7.2% alcohol is well hidden.

@ Party Town / Florence KY Cloudy dark amber, no head, no lace. Taste is malt and dark fruit with slight bitterness that moves through the palate and finish without change. Inoffensive, static, I can drink it, but why?

DTM (798) - Winters, California, USA - JAN 13, 2014
Bottle from Safeway in Cordelia, CA. Pours a dark amber color. Really like the mild hop character followed up by a good amount of malty caramel goodness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hihosteveareno (9) - - JAN 12, 2014 does not count
Overall very good. Hoppy fruity a bit bitter and very drinkable. Leaves a clean mouth feel. The 7% alcohol gives a nice buzz and the price was right for me at about $4.00 for the two servings bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VinegarStroke (345) - Napa, California, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Tap: Clear, copper to red with medium head. Red fruit beer, caramel, medium hoppy lift, citrus rind, orange, clean, bright, spice. Off dry, not sour, medium bitterness. Medium weight and length. Rich finish. Hops are used wisely for a west coast style Amber Ale. Rich and primary.

Mora2000 (6101) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Amber with a white head. The aroma has a lot of toffee as well as some grass and light pine. The flavor is similar with a lot of toffee and caramel. Fairly sweet overall with a good bit of alcohol noticeable. Also get some light pine notes and a low amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

tnkw01 (1538) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Bottle. Amber color with a medium head. Hazy with a lot of floaties. Aroma was malt and caramel, didn’t get much hops. Taste was caramel, slight floral, maybe a little funk. Must of been a old beer.

Poured into a Napa Smith pint glass at the Napa Smith Brewery. From notes, July 29, 2012. Thanks Karl! A: Roasted malt, caramel sweetness, hints of dark fruit and pine. A: Pours a hazy copper in color with a decent head and some lacing. T: Follows the nose with roasted malt, caramel sweetness and a mild bitterness and a dry finish. P: Medium body, smooth and decent carbonation. O: Decent beer, very quaffable, but nothing I would go out of my way for.
