COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A 2001 Silver Medal Winner at the North American Brewers' Association competition. A deep-copper colored medium - bodied ale. Its fresh flavor is smooth and carefully balanced with a nice mellowness and hint of caramel malt balanced by medium hop bitterness. It is an all malt beer that is naturally carbonated. A very drinkable beer all on its own and pairs well with all kinds of foods.

UPDATED: DEC 27, 2007 Pours amber copper w/ a shallow semi creamy froth. Aroma of malt and biscuits. Medium nectar w/ mellow residual effers. Flavors are soft yet true w/ malted biscuits. Soft bittering on the finish. Overall: A very mellow amber. I liked it.

Bottle from cbkschubert; Thanks Craig! Nose of caramel malts, citrus, and a little bit of banana esters showed. Rusty colored with a tiny beige head; malty caramel flavor with some roastiness.

Ratman197 (9961) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 31, 2006
Bottle poured a clear reddish amber with a small lasting amber head. Aromas of carmel, toffee, nuts and just a hint of citrus. Palate was light bodied and smooth. Flavors of malt, carmel, toffee and a hint of honey with a smooth bittersweet finish.

This brew was one of the 7 Dwarves of the Oak Creek tasting set at their Sedona location. Copper pour under a small khaki head. Malty aroma with a touch of citrus and toffee. Pleasant malty flavor with some vanilla & caramel. Nothing remarkable in the flavor or finish. The views from the window, unfortunately, were better than the beer.

UPDATED: OCT 12, 2007 Re-rates: This thing isnít that sweet, despite lacking any hops. It has a nutty, almost amber lager type twist, pretty crisp, somewhat dry, with a firm malt presence. Original rating: Nothing bad to say about this one, other than the fact that the hops were underplayed. The aroma was of strong caramel, somewhat sweet. The flavor was much the same, although the caramel got to me after a while: too sweet (theme here w/ OC). The mouthfeel wasnít as sticky and the sweetness wasnít really cloying.... just overdone, but drinkable.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2006
12oz bottle and the last of my tour tonight of Oak Creek provided via trade with cbkschubert - Thanks Craig! - Pours amber with a short white head. Aroma of caramel malts and grassy hops. Flavor is caramel, and some frosted flakes. Oddly enough this tastes nutty too. Very similar to the same flavor as the nut brown ale I had earlier. Palate is creamy and medium bodied. A little less roasty than the nut brown but very similar in flavor. Not much hop presence here.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - MAY 29, 2006
Pours a clear reddish-amber color with a faint head that faded. Has a light grassy hop aroma. Flavor is also a slight grassy hops with just a touch of caramel malt sweetness. Medium body. Not too bad.

KUEric (886) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - MAR 30, 2006
12 oz bottle: Tiny little 1/8" head that fades away in a matter of seconds. The color is a nice amber-brown color almost a copper. The aroma is fruity, carboard and very mild to non-existant. The flavor is sweet malts up front (only on the first touch of the tounge/lips) then fruity, cardboard, wood, and socks with a bitter (not necessarily in a good way) finish.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 18, 2005
Very unusual beer. Pours very dark mahogany with a tan head. Aroma is nutty and caramel. Flavor is the same, but with a sour finish. I donít know how this can be called an amber. Not sweet, not transparent. Iíd call this a stout, and not a very good one.

Shared this with Aurelius who brought it back from Arizona. Medium copper-coloered pour, decent off-white head. Aroma has some fruity and floral notes to it with some nectarines. Flavor has a profile of citrus and caramel with an odd celery back end. The finish has a sweet, biscuity maltiness to it with a hint of nuttiness. Thick mouthfeel, decent amber. Actually had this before on a trip to Sedona before my RB days.
