A pleasant amber - a style I am not overly fond of to begin with - this brew favors malt both in aromatics and flavor profile. A slight sweetness bordering on caramel is in evidence, as is a bit of hops; the malt and the hops are nicely balanced, and that’s about all I’ve got to say about that.

Pretty good amber. I enjoy most things that new Belgium does. Of course this is their first

Pours dark orange with a smooth head. Aroma of fruits and malts. Taste is malty, grassy and easygoing with some caramel and toffee notes. Finish is sweet and malty. Decent, light bodied and easy going amber ale.

Aroma has resiny hops and some fruits. Feels a bit musty. Also caramel. Flavour has fruity hops, some harsh malt, apricot and caramel. Also some mineral tones. Easy-going and straightforward.

Guess I am just not a fan of amber. Well balanced with a slight malt forward character.Taste has a bit of sweet caramel and toffee. Finish is long but consistent will the taste.

Light aroma, a bit floral. Not much but malt and toast in toast. Easy on the mouthfeel. Smooth finish. Ok as a sessionable beer.

Sweet smell and amber in color, this beer initially has a caramel taste, but then a slight floral hop and clean finish make this a great session beer.

Poured from a can. Amber as can be. Slight off-white head. Aroma is sweet, sugary malt with a bit of roast and grass. Taste is lightly roasted malts, a bit of red apple, grass, cereal. Slightly above-average, non-offensive amber.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap: Translucent copper body with an off-white, fluffy head. A little lacing left behind. Aroma is super-malty caramel & toasted nuts all day with a little bit of cocoa dust. Super caramely. Taste is the same, burnt caramel, toffee, & a lighter presence of chocolate with roast underneath. Sweet, about 95% malts with 5% hops peaking through, adding a hint of floral bitterness in the finish. This stuff is liquid caramel malt juice. Decent, but pretty generic all around.
