COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Its call is intoxicating. An aroma that beckons you to pull up a stool and linger over its toasted malt character. Next, a deep kiss of liquid lust that will caress your tongue, thanks to an array of toasty Pale, Crystal (30 and 75), what, Carapils and roasted barley malts balanced by the subtle bite of Willamette and Fuggle hops. It’s a brew that will seduce your heart, mind and palette.

I really wanted to like this more than I did, the only thing holding me back from rating it higher was the beer itself. It has a cool label design and comes in a cool stubby bottle ala Red Stripe. That’s really where the good stuff ends, not much worth reporting otherwise. Just pretty mediocre, I would like it better if it was free. I would drink it again, I just wouldn’t pay for it again.

trapped (1428) - New York, TURKEY - AUG 1, 2015
Draught @ Jolly Pumpkin Ann Arbor. Dark amber with small foamy beige head, faint caramel aroma, low carbonation, caramel malt taste, medium caramel finish. Very smooth and balanced caramel taste.

chucklemation (838) - Royal Oak, Michigan, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Pours a light amber with a thin, long-lasting white foam head. Aroma is caramel malts, sweet bread, and light earthy hops. Flavor is sweet bread, some caramel, and a light note of the hops. A very light touch of bitterness as well. Decent if you’re looking for something light and not hoppy.

Meilby (9728) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2015
Draught @ Jolly Pumpkin Cafe & Brewery, Ann Arbor, MI
Pours clear amber with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, floral and some fruitiness. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long caramel, fruity and floral finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 14, 2015
On tap at Jolly Pumpkin, Ann Arbor. A clear, dark amber colored beer with a small dark beige head. The aroma is quite malty, bread and caramel, with some dried fruits and a grassy touch. Rather boring flavor too, bread, caramel and prunes, and some hoppy notes. Full to medium body, soft carbonation. Long malty finish. A rather boring beer, thirteen on the dozen. 150614

EtTuCthulhu (1384) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - MAR 26, 2015
This beer pours a slightly hazy copper color with a medium khaki-colored head with some retention. The aroma is a blend of caramel, toasted, and slightly smoked malts with very little earthy hop characteristic; the taste is mildly sour, slightly umami, and a touch bitter, which isn’t terribly pleasant or inviting. The aftertaste is toasted malts that have been toasted a bit too long to be appealing anymore, and the rest of the palate reveals an average carbonation, slick texture, and a medium-light body.

cards04 (2374) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
Pours a nice amber with soft white head. Aromas are very sweet. Honey, corn syrup, and fresh grains. Sweet and refreshing drink. I like this more than the score indicates.

thegreenrooster (3566) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Pour is a murky brown with a small white head. Aroma is a decent caramel malt with some sweetness. Flavor is some chewy caramel malt with some chocolate in the back round. As far as amber ales go this is not a bad version. Decent malt profile and not a watery mess at all.

Faint caramel, grains and sweet brown sugar, with light citrus hop bitterness. Slightly metallic with a lemony finish. It?s light and easy to drink.

On tap at North Peak. Pour amber with an off white head. Taste and aroma of malt with a light hoppyness. An OK amber.

Nice amber color. I like how light it is. Very subtle flavor. Malty, smooth, and well-balanced.
