I like this beeer for its robust character and malty flavor. Has kind floral aroma and a little bit of a sweet finish.

Nice draft quaffer. Moderate maltiness, good hops kick. Nice start to my midwest road trip.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 30, 2007 Clear amber with an off-white head. Some floral hops and freshly-baked bread in the nose. Flavor has notes of toasted malt, a little bread, caramel and a very pleasant hop character in the finish. Moderately sweet, some hop bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied, smooth texture and moderate carbonation. Overall, very nice drinkable beer.

A good American Amber Ale, wish it would make it to the east coast. My cousin gave me a bottle once and I’ve also had it on Tap in Washington St. It has a great balance between hoppiness and toasty malts.

I thought this beer would be hoppier than it was, but I still enjoyed it, Malty, but enough bite to it too, pretty good, quite refreshing. I had this on tap at Hollingshead deli, Orange, Ca.

A very pleasant beer. The aroma is subtle, but rich in honey notes. I couldn’t detect much hoppiness, it’s just incredibly balanced. This would be a great late afternoon beer to enjoy in the sunshine with some friends.

This is a great beer. They are doing something right. The overall flavor was refereshing and I enjoyed the light hint of hops at the end. They have a great hops mix on this beer. I get Cascade hops for sure. I would drink this tap or bottle there is little difference.

After dragging a box of beer through the Denver Airport this beer was a welcome relief. Paired with a Wolfgang Puck Chinois Salad, this beer went down too quickly. In fact I drank it so fast I cant even rate it. I will have to try it again.

I got a sample of 3 of these bottles from a friend and finished them fairly quickly and am looking for more. I really enjoy the smooth, easy drinkability of this beer.
