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.

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.

Light amber color with a small wispy white head. Some sweet pale malt and just a hint of dry herb hops in the aroma. Will the nut brown had some character, this one has nothing going for it aside from the fact that it is amber sudsy stuff. Cheers.

Had on draft at the brewery/restaurant in Sedona. Not much to say about this one, however the food was GREAT! No head, amber golden color, good carbonation, and average amber ale flavor. It’s a good ’drinking’ beer when you want to pound quite a ’few’ back...

JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Bottle. Pours a rich amber color with a small off white head. Aroma of toffee and roasted malt. Taste was semi sweet with a caramel and citrus flavor. The malt is definately dominant in this brew however. Very smooth and easy to drink. Nothing really remarkable about it though.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 3, 2007
Pours a clear copper orange with a thin ring of wispy white head. Aroma of sweet toasty crystal malts with a touch of earthy noble hops. Body starts slightly caramely and sweet thinning into a slightly bitter bland and watery finish with a touch of astringency. A very blah beer that could be better with just a few recipe tweaks.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with cbkschubert (thanks!). Poured a medium amber color with a small sized off white head. Muted aromas of caramel and citrus. I had to breath in real deep to get those. Tastes of caramel, citrus, and a splash of roastiness. Thinner body.
