COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A blend of Caramel and Barley Malts balanced with Perle and Hallertauer hops makes this amber a downtown favorite.

Deep amber brown with small head. Slight malt nose w/ some cherry and nut notes. Strange nutty dry mid with an evaporating finish. Almost stale as far as hops go, strange burnt flavors. As much as my notes sound odd I found myself going back to this beer to figure it out. Not bad.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2004 A pretty standard amber; hoppy (grapefruit), malt graininess didnít particularly shine through, but didnít impart anything unpleasant. This typifies the boring session amber for me. Iíve had far worse beers in Kzoo. Iíd like to try more from these guys. OK that was memory and now I found my notes: Medium to full bodied, nice dark red brown. Great malt and hop balance caramelly and toasty - good - damn I love Hallertauer.

Light amber beer with no pronounced head. No smell. Very hoppy and quite bitter. Tangy and carbonated. OK.

Draft. A good starter ale. Greater fruitiness and hop spiciness that other ambers I've tasted lately. Taste is something close to how Pete's Wicked used to taste.
