actually as far as ambers go, this is probably one of the better and well balanced versions of the style.

Poured as a taster at local bottle shop. Pours a ruddy brown. Aromas of hops and caramel. Taste is dominated by malt flavors - brown sugar, caramel, and biscuit - just a touch of hops. A little out of balance, but this would be excellent with food.

Drank from the bottle. Aroma consists of hay, caramel, and toasted malt. Taste is malt, brown sugar, caramel, and hay. Moderately sweet beer, medium bodied and medium carbonation. Solid brew.

Bottle at home. Nose was grass and citrus with a light caramel malt. Flavors were similar. The hops seemed faded out. I may have had an older bottle but I couldn’t locate a date. Overall it was decent it just seemed...boring. Not sure. Gonna give it another try in the future and re-rate.

12oz bottle. Thanks Lehr! Pours into a red cup like liquid. Delicious liquid. Aroma of caramel and citrus. Late dry finish.

Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice ruddy looking amber to brown color. There’s a nice looking one finger white foamy head that dies within less than a minute.
There’s not much lacing at all.
The smell had a nice toasted caramel malts to it and shows a decent bitter citrus hoppiness in the background.
The taste was mainly sweet but still had a light bitterness helping to balance it.
On the palate, this one sat at/about a medium in body. It was somewhat sessionable and had a decent carbonation running over my mouth and tongue.
Overall, I say this was a good Amber ale worthy of having again.

Very malty, too much so, with a sweetness that doesn't pair well. It's too simple, like that damned car stereo you had that didn't even have the basic bass and treble knobs...but a single tone knob instead. Yeah, it's like that.

Nice tasting Ale with a bit of a floral bite at the very end of your sip. Would be better with more alcohol in it.

[Bottle] Reddish amber color with a soapy white head. Nose is of caramel malts and a decent amount of floral hops. Sweet fruits, caramel, dusty grains, toasted bread and light astringency in the taste. Smooth and sticky mouthfeel. A nice beer for the style. Tasting notes from early 2012.
