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.

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.

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.

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.

jimhilt (2555) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 13, 2006
Pours a one finger light brown head that fades to a thin layer leaving some lace. Cloudy amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Malty bready nose. Starts sweet with the hops right there, but not as overpowering like some ambers. Finish has some bitterness. $1.79 for a 12oz bottle from Chalet Party Goshen, In.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 6, 2006
12oz bottle. Filtered with an amber hue. Slight caramel bready nose. Sweet with a sour tart complexity. Bready dry bitter finish. Rather back heavy. Not too well rounded.

vyvvy (5864) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - NOV 1, 2006
Pours lightly hazy amber with a small tan head. Aroma is typical malty amber ale maltiness - the aroma itself is fairly hard to detect. Medium / light body with a small amount of carbonation. Taste is a bit watery and musty. There is some light malt that is somewhat astringent. The finish adds more astringency and some spice. Mediocre at best.

shigadeyo (3635) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 12, 2006
Amber color with chill haze. Mild carbonation with a yellowish head. Aroma is pine/resin hops and malt. Flavor is caramel malt extract and a hoppy, malty and slightly bitter finish. Average palate. Not bad, but not great either. However, the warmer it gets, the better the aroma and flavor. Both become fuller, slightly more comlex, and more enjoyable. 12 oz bottle, $1.75 from the Pour House Bottle Shop.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2006
Bonus from Hippie4beer. Pours a medium amber with a thin dissipating head. Slight chill haze which clears to show you there are lots of hop leaf particles floating around. Aroma is initially lots of DMS when chilled, but gives way to some nice fruity esters, light citrus hops and some caramel malt sweetness. Flavor is a bit weak- light caramel malts, some dms and herbal hops- some hay-like notes, and a light herbal bitterness.

muenster (345) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 14, 2006
Draught at Oaken Barrel Brewpub. Poured a nice red color, with an offwhite head. Strong malts and toast in the aroma. Flavor has definite hoppy turn, but the finish is pure maltiness.
