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.

Nice amber color, thin head with a sweet aroma. Smooth and drinkable. Slight caramel initial and then finishes with a little bitterness. A good amber.

Bockyhorsey (2610) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAY 9, 2005
Somewhat of a camel aroma to it. Copper body and good head on the pour but was gone quick. Flavor of some hoppinees and smooth on the palate. If this beer would of been cool and crisp on the palate rating might of been a different story.

Cornfield (5465) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 6, 2005
Nice session beer, pouring a hazy amber color with a lazy white head. The aroma is mainly caramel malt with orange and floral hops. It’s a creamy caramel drink with a flavor of orange hops and a smattering of herbal bitterness in the finish. Okay.

WISEGUY572 (1373) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2005
A good looking amber ale with a white heade. Not great. but pleasant mix of sweet malt, floral hops, and some bitter hops. Low enough alcohol to make it a good session beer, and to provide a good explanation for the lack of in-your-face intensity and complexity.

SDbruboy (1864) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 12, 2005
Bottle. Pours copper color with a small white head. Mild aroma without much recognizable character, flavor is sweet, caramelly with a bit of hop in the finish. Medium body and little carbonation. So-so ale, better than the macros - but not by much.

Bottle. Again, a rotting fruit/melon nose. Very mild with some slight hops. Sour finish. Blah.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 1, 2005
Clear amber color with a big head and lots of lacing. Aroma is caramel and wet sponge. Taste is a congealed malty mess. Way too sweet and sticky.

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - DEC 10, 2004
Deep amber w/ a big white head. Med. bodied. A little overly spicy. Very estery. Not much caramel but a fair amount maltiness. A fair amount of diacetyl. Very little hops in th finish. Fairly typical of the style.
