UPDATED: JUN 14, 2006 Pours a clear amber color. Nice toasty malt aroma. Well balanced flavor with a slight lean to the malty side. Nice head retention throughout. Slight malty after taste. Medium body. An a very nice amber ale. Needs nationwide distribution. This beer will grow on you. Try it again. Its good stuff

Very toasty and nutty. Much more flavorful then I would have expected from an amber ale. Almost like a mix of a nut brown and an amber. A slight hoppyness comes in the finish. From the reviews I was expecting very little but I was pleasently suprised.

Nice color and well balanced beer. Not overpowering. Easy to drink all night long. Very enjoyable and a favorite of mine.

This beers not THAT well balanced. I thought that it could have used quite a bit more body for an amber. Nice blend of malt and hops though, that must be what they meant.

Nice deep red color, not much head. Yeasty smell, with nice nut and roast aromas, little hops. Nice malty flavor with a good roasted malt finish. Clean finish with enough body to carry the flavor. A good beer overall

Not a bad beer to drink in quantity. Too little taste for my liking. Starts weak and ends weak. Michelob Amber Bock is a much better beer if you are looking for something like this.

Pours a muddy amber with a nice tan head. Flavor is malty and i get lots of raisons. There is some lingering hops in the swallow. A very nice beer expierince in my opinion. Available almost everywhere and worth trying.

Not that great of an ale. Tasted good but nothing special. Amber body, very malty.

On tap. Amber color, tan head. Toasty malt aroma. Flavor was malty as well, lightly sweet, tiny bit of hops. Average body, but pretty drinkable. Not bad.

Its a shame this beer isnt available east of the Mississippi River. A delightful ale with a nice, smooth taste.
