Bomber into pint glass. Nice amber/copy body with a minimal bubbly white head that fades to not much more than a ring. Smells doughy and cakey -- simple but solid. Flavor is the same with a bit of a bitter hop finish. Again, simple, but solid. Alcohol hidden very well. Medium body with medium carbonation. Overall: nothing special, but wholly inoffensive and flawless. Easy session beer (whose abv might creep on you).

hayduke (3779) - Eureka, California, USA - OCT 16, 2009
From a 22 oz bottle this bottle of amber ale poured a very clear red to amber color with a good sized white and fat head and very good lacing rings as it settled. Nose of caramel malts and floral hops. Good clean mouthfeel. The flavor is more sweet than bitter, but the finish moves toward biter making this very easy to drink. A very nice amber.

beerguy101 (5338) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 25, 2009
Sampled 9/18/2009. This amber ale pours a reddish amber color from a 22oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel malt, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied amber. The malts are caramel and semi-sweet. The hops are floral and earthy. Nice balance. Decent carbonation. This beer is mostly an amber ale with a couple of exceptions, it’s not as sweet and it’s was more hoppy. Nice clean beer with a nice dry finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - SEP 7, 2009
Sparkling light amber with a big fluffy head and moderate lacing, appearance is the best aspect of this beer. Faint crystal malt aroma, paper and stale neutral hops. Sticky sweet, light bodied and awkward. Flavor tastes of sweet adjuncts and plain malt. Finished empty with a very mild bitterness. Nothing too redeeming here.

travita (4435) - Frisco, Texas, USA - SEP 3, 2009
Bottle thanks to ericandersnavy. The look is clear, copper colored, with an off white head. The smell is candy, hops, sweet, and caramel. The taste is hops, bitterness, fruits, malts, and caramel.

Clear golden orange with a fizzy white head. Sweet apple, orange, and cinnamon aroma. Tangy and earthy caramel and straw taste with a tangy fruit finish.

thirdeye11 (5819) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 9, 2009
(22oz bottle thanks to ericandersnavy) Pours amber with nice bubbles and good lacing. Nose is corn, plastic, and sweet malts. Taste slightly sweet but I wish there was more. Solid red, but wish it had a little more of everything.

Didn’t really seem very much like an amber. Poured gold, tasted a lot like a lager. Flavor was caramel. Forgettable.
