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.

b3shine (4412) - 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.

574deadzone (884) - North Central, Indiana, USA - JUL 14, 2012
On tap. Pours a darker amber-red with a smaller eggshell head that leaves plenty of soapy lace behind. Nose is hoppy, spicy and citrusy, with a little caramel presence. Taste is pretty bitter with a little sweetness. Lighter side of medium bodied with lots of bitterness on the end. Nice amber, plenty hoppy and fairly easy drinking.

5 oz sampler at the brewpub. Pours an amber color. Medium off white head. Slight hoppy aroma. Flavor of caramel. Some bitterness in the mouthfeel. Overall a nice beer

timsilvia32 (449) - from Michigan now in Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Pours a nice red, cream head. Pretty malty, nice floral aroma. Tastes the same, well balanced and clean finish. Has more character than the Killians and Lieni’s of the world.

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.

shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Caramel with cloves and butterscotch notes. This is a nicely refreshing side to a burger.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Tasted 4/26/08. Sampler from the brewpub. Hazy with a dark amber hue. Off white halo of head. Bready nose. Touch of a fruity undertone. Medium bodied with a nice toasty flavor. Mild diasytl. Off dry palate. Slight coffee and moderate grain roast. Not too bad.

Tmoney99 (10076) - 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.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 13/20
3fourths (7797) - 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.
