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.

Bottle thanks to cbkschubert. Pours a copper color with decent white head. Hints of hops and roasted sweet malt. Light hops at first, then followed by a sweet roasted almost nutty malt flavor. Body is light, as is the finish. Very clean and quick.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 19, 2008
Slightly cloudy copper colored pour, with a flimsy white head. Nice aroma of hops and malt, with some fruity sweetness. Flavor is dominated by the hops, but with some notes of malt and caramel. Easy drinking BBQ style beer.

12 oz bottle vai Hellbilly (thanks!). Pours a semi-hazy copper with a tiny head. Nose is sweet & malty. Taste is ice tea, biscuits, and subtle earthy hops. Carbonation is high, body is medium. An ok backyard bbq type beer.

12oz brown bottle courtesy of my parents, who recently went to Sedona. Pours a copper-amber body with a thin film of offwhite head that dissipates quickly. Smells sweet and malty, siimilar to malt extract. Tastes toasty buttery sweet. Smooth medium mouthfeel makes this a pretty drinkable ale. Not the best beer in theworld, but a really solid sessionalbe ale that I’d get mopre often if it was local here. Good beer!

Pours amber with small white head. Aroma is mellowed caramel. Flavor is low caramel, biscuit and victory malt. Floral hops as well. Easy drinking, nice crispness and biscuit touch. Not bad.

Poured a mostly clear amber color with a thin off-white head. The aroma is malty and toasty with some biscuit notes. Mild citrus as well. The flavor had a mild tartness to it over a toasty malt.

Bottle. Thanks to cbkschubert for sending me this. Poured a cloudy red amber body with thin head. Aroma is malty, light hops and a little fruity scent. Flavor was sweet malt, light citrus and fruit flavors, and a low amount of caramel. Well carbonated. Easy drinking.

I dont know how this was rated so low. This was probably one of the better ambers that I have had. A nice sweet arom of caramel and some vanilla. Amber in color. Flavor is nice sweet caramel malt balanced delicatley by some hops. This was one of the smoothest beer I have ever had believe it or not. Velvetty on the palate.
