(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with atpayne, thanks Adam!) This seems like a pretty standard amber ale, somewhat sweet, malty, and caramely, but balanced by a lively hoppiness that is moderately bitter and tea-like. Sweet, light caramel, slight hops and some tea in the nose. Medium bodied, with a nicely carbonated, crisp and refreshing mouthfeel. Medium amber color is slightly hazy. Small, off-white head settles to a thin ring. Nothing too out of the ordinary, but pleasant and easy to drink without being boring.

Nose of grain and cereal, slightly floral. Pours a medium clear sparkling copper red. The average creamy off white head is mostly diminishing and leaves a light sheet of lace. The brew is well balanced with a hint of sweet citrus bite. The finish is average. The medium dry body is lively and feels dry at the finish.

On tap at the pub. This ale appears to be the obligatory standard ale that all brewpubs serve. A decent session beer but not noteworthy or memorable.

Yea, so this beer really isn’t that good. A bit more sour then I would like in a beer. I guess it will surfice for the night.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - OCT 6, 2005
Pours a redish orange with small off white head. Aroma is malty, but not distinctive from most ambers. Carmel and slightly toasted malts. Has a sour malt character right up front on the palate and then a medium bodied carmel malt, followed by a bit of a hop kick, with a cascade feel.

Could stand to be bigger. But overall pretty solid. Nice balance, light malty aroma and somewhat complex malt character, with just enough hop to balance the sweetness. Would be quite good with a little more of everything.

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - AUG 21, 2005
Rusty amber in color with a sweet caramel nose. The body is nicely balanced, drinkable and just plain good. A great session beer, that showcases the beauty of caramalt.

A reasonably decent light ale. No head whatsoever, only light lacing from the first pour. Decent amount of hops which comes off slightly more powerful than any malt, although the flavor is not strong overall. Slightly clloudy, homogenous amber color, faint but pleasant aromal. My only grievance with this ale is that although it is obviously a quality ale, it is very middle of the road. It almost seems like an average of all other ales.

Bottle courtesy of Mr. Capriotti. Clear amber color. Appetizing sweet donut aroma with caramel and chocolate notes. Toasted pale malt flavor (toffee, caramel) with faint bitter hops. The malts have some unique character but it’s not really interesting.

Clear reddish orange body, thin off-white head. Dry, dusty and slightly caramelly / wheaties cascade hops. Its there but very light and basic. Taste adds the dry wheaties with some more PNW hops on top and an annoying dirty caramel sweetness. Malt and hops.... its all there, but just meh. If I were a homebrewer I could probably make as my first batch w/o trying.
