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

Tmoney99 (10462) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 17, 2008
Draft sample at brewpub. Poured hazy reddish amber color with a medium frothy off-white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Moderate sweet balanced aroma. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Medium sweet toasted flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Average drinkable brew.

3fourths (7885) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 4, 2008
Murky unfiltered red and brown in color. Sharp, rough, thin and crusty on the tongue, harsh cracked grains and some cherry-flavored crystal malt. Medium hopped, in the vein of so-called imperial red ales, I imagine, but seems only around 5-6% ABV. Sweet fruit in the nose and a rough, husky malt body. Average.

b3shine (5195) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Draft to pint (from notes). Looks solid; amber with off-white head. Smells and tastes alright; slightly sweet and malty with notes of caramel and a somewhat bitter hop profile. Average on the palate. A decent Amber.

Pailhead (4633) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - DEC 10, 2005
On tap: Aroma is citrusy with some light nuttiness. Mostly a transparent orange with a touch of haze and a small off-white head. Decent lacing. Citrusy and nutty up front with a light grapefruit hop finish. Somewhat IPA-ish in flavor.

Bullit (3974) - Burgos, SPAIN - NOV 22, 2009
On tap at Olde Peninsula brewpub. Dark copper colour, white head. Aroma has caramel malts, some hops. Flavour of caramel malts, some spices.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 13, 2008
On tap at Olde Peninsula brewpub. Copper amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel, sweet malt and light citrus hops. Taste of caramel, cereal grains, toasted malts and light hops. Carbonated body is balanced with a nice caramel-hop finish. Along with the stout, the best beer at the brew pub.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 16, 2007
Pours a cloudy reddish amber color with a ring of offwhite lace on top. Interesting aroma and flavor of caramel and hops with a bitter finish. The body is light with an oily texture and moderate carbonation. Interesting beer.

3.3
   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - SEP 10, 2006
On tap at the brewpub/restaurant. Murky orange-brown body, medium off-white head. Cerealy, light aroma with hints of caramel. Served cold, which masks much of the flavor profile. Thankfully, as this beer warms, rich layers of caramel, Cheerios, dark fruits, and grassy, bitter hops develop. Light bitter finish. A pleasant beer in all respects.

DrnkMcDermott (2781) - Downers Grove, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2003
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.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łůdż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2004
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.
