UPDATED: MAR 1, 2011 I had this a while ago, and I wasn’t as impressed as this time around. Glad I gave it another shot! Really well balanced amber with nice hop and malt.

this is one of the best session beers around. great balance of malt and hops... the type of beer that one bottle can satisfy an evening drinker, but a six pack won’t overwhelm somebody with inebriation in mind. the stubby bottle and fantastic design help distinguish it from other regional quaffers.

One of the better amber ales i’ve had to my recollection. There are tons of them on the market but this one stands out. If you’re in the market for a good amber this is one that won’t dissapoint.

Nice, crisp amber color. Not much of a head. Just one smell has you knowing you’re going to be in for something different. There is a ton of flavor in this Siren. Lots of malt, caramel, toasted bread, some hops in the finish. Big, round mouthfeel. There’s a bit of a dry, bitter finish.
Tons of flavor, well balanced, and a bigger feel than you’d expect. A very good amber ale.

Really enjoyed this beer. Had a nice nutty malty taste with a little sweetness and very little hop presence, also had a nice aroma, no head.

Had a glass on tap as part of a sampler at the brewery. Solid effort for a boring style.

12 oz. bottle. A "malt bomb" as expected. Clear amber color with average head. Lots of body for 5%! Sweet malt aroma and taste, but cut with hop bitterness in the aftertaste. I intend to buy this again.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 8/19/2013. Pours lightly hazy ruby copper color with a 1-2 finger dense cream colored head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of caramel, toast, biscuit, toffee, orange zest, lemon zest, floral, grass, light pine, light roast, and floral earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of malt and hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, biscuit, toffee, floral, grass, lemon/orange zest, light pine, light roast, and floral earthiness. Fair amount of earthy pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, toffee, citrus, floral, grass, light pine, and light roast on the finish for a bit. Nice balance of malt and hop flavors; with good robustness and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a lightly creamy, smooth, and crisp mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice amber ale! All around good balance and robustness of malt and hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Aroma is has a nice robust malt aroma with a somewhat burn scent to it. Old fashioned hard candy, grain, really dough with some twangy hops poking through on the back end. Appearance is a very clear amber color with a medium sized off white head that diminishes quickly. Taste is Cereal malt characteristic, lightly coffee tasting, with hints of nuts and caramel. Some bitter hops in there as well. More of a German Lager type hops to the taste like Saaz in my honest opinion. Palate is nicely carbonated, slightly heavy on the tongue with a lingering aftertaste of a light burnt malt characteristic and more prominent hops. Overall, Really decent brew. It’s good cool or warm. Cheers!
