3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a fiery amber with a dissapating off white head. Aroma is floral and malty. Taste is of caramel malt, citrus and floral hops. Moderately sweet with a bitter aftertaste. Bold and full bodied-very satisfying. Nice lacing. This is one of the better ambers Iíve had. Very well balanced- recommended.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Reddish, amber appearance with a small head. Floral, malty nose with a sweet caramel aroma. Hops were the first to hit the tastebuds, follwed by a wheaty, fruity balancing flavor. Nicely carbonated with a dry, slightly bitter finish.

Canít really put my finger on the reason I didínt enjoy this beer. It made me quiver few times when i was at the end of my cup and made me regret going half on the 6 pack. I know lot of people love this beer and rave and rant about it but this is just my honest opinion.

Klingers-Very nice looking brew. Aroma and flavor is a nice blend of sweet oranges and smooth carmel. Great brew

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled. Pours crystal clear, copper color, giant beige head thatís creamy on top, less so on the sides, decent lacing start to finish. Heavy malts on the nose with honey, but dominated by hops with bitter citrus and some almost piney notes and definite sweet flowers on the end. Smells more like an IPA than an amber. Nice, lively carbonation, medium body with a somewhat watery finish, like syrup in water. Sugary sweet, but not enough to balance out the hops that are dominant from start to finish; pine and citrus hops, very bitter flavor, but not an overwhelming amount of it and the sugar, lasting through the finish, helps. The flavor is somewhat abrasive with the harsh bitter and the watery finish that doesnít "buffer" your palate from that, but itís still rather drinkable and VERY refreshing. Nice amber.

Copper body with frothy beige head. Pleasant citrusy hops aroma. Medium bodied, creamy, nice carbonation. Flavor was a refreshing citrus/hops. A good but not great ale with a clean, crisp, satisfying taste.

As a local brew, this is easy to find here, and a lot of locals purchase it in bottles. I drank one yesterday, and as a newer rater paid a lot of attention to what I was drinking. Poured into a glass it had an interesting amber color that somehow reminded me of honey. Nice white head, and I was greeted by an aroma that I can only describe as a mixture of hops, carmel, and maybe coffee. It had a little bit of a bite at the start that I found a little disconcerting, that went away but returned again right at the end. Yet it was drinkable and overall a decent, but not outstanding ale. There are other ales made and available here in Humboldt County I like better. But if someone hands me one, I will not complain.
