COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Caramel brown in the glass with not much head. Lots of Caramel/toast aromas and some soapy hops that carry a good amount of spice. Short palate with fleeting hops, malts hang around a bit longer. All in all, pretty smooth and generous with malt flavors.

12 oz Bottle: It looks great! A very good looking amber ale, people always talk about brewing to style, well this one appears to style perfectly. The aroma isn’t the greatest. Lemon wheat grass is the aroma. Kind of funky though, like a sweaty sock. The flavor was iffy. I’m sure its the fact that in the commercial description is say 2-row barley malt, but this what barley malt is like in my mind.

Lively honey colored pour. Small head with very little lacing. Grassy aroma. Smooth wheaty, hoppy flavor. I would it again.

A light caramel color aroma which tates similar to pale ale. It’s a kind of beer skiers and snowboarders can enjoy. This stuff’s not for me.

Poured dark amber, nice head which stuck around for a while......smelled like Anderson Valley’s Winter Solstice and tasted a bit like it, but not as sweet or flavorful. A good beer though and very enjoyable.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2006
Pours brown with a thin white head. Smells of caramel malt. The flavor is a rich caramel/roast blend malt. Burnt finish on this.

The matly nose, nice head and clear mahogany color make this an inviting brew. The wheat lends a spicy flavor to this medium bodied ale. Very balanced and thus doesn’t have a standout flavor attribute. A decent amber ale.
