Davinci (295) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Pours a cloudy amber color with nice enough white head. Good retention of the foam around the glass. Nose is fruity and hoppy, smells of strawberries ahnd plastic. Taste is bitter and astringent with a medium body. Finishes somewhat fruity, but also bitter in a wierd unpleasant way. We home brewed something like this once... and I poured the batch down the drain. Not a good beer IMHO.

WickerBrew (311) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2008
Actually not too bad, wasn’t really expecting great things. Kind of a solid woody/organic flavor. Might call it bland for an amber, but it doesnt go anywhere it shouldnt.

MrRain (472) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 21, 2008
This is a nice, mild amber. It has good taste but not the typical overpowering kick of some ambers. You could drink quite a few of these & still be in good shape.

Rockinout (966) - Kent, Ohio, USA - AUG 24, 2007
Malty and sweetish at the start, softly carbonated, doughy aroma. Finishes with minimal hops.

Optigon (562) - Bloomington, Indiana, USA - JUN 27, 2007
Pours clear, amber, with a moderate head. Hoppy, fruity aroma. Caramel flavors with a bit of a hoppy, fruity finish. Generally a pleasant departure from typical ambers.

gmcase (115) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2007 tap. So far the best amber that I have ever had. More nutty almost like a really good brown ale. Not usually a fan of ambers but I would actually have this one again. Looks like it doesn’t fair well in the bottle though.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2007
12oz bottle pours amber with a short offwhite head. Aromas of caramel, some yeast and a little grass. Flavor is caramel, some slight citrus, and a good amount of yeast. Medium body and pretty sweet throughout. Another ho hum average amber.

MI2CA (1340) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - FEB 5, 2007
12oz - Pure toasty malt aroma. Pours dark amber with a small head and good lacing. Flavor matches aroma with a rusty aftertaste. Boy does this get bad as it warms. Palate is sticky and sweet. Not very good at all.

redlem (1301) - Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2006
Dark amber color with a small head. Clean, fresh, sweet malt aroma. Sweet malt, yeast taste up front with some bitterness at end. IMO an above average amber, for whatever that is worth.
