COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep red beer is our second hoppiest brew although not overly bitter due to the balance of malty sweetness imparted by the 80L Caramel malted barley. This beer would fall loosely in the American Amber category but has its own uniqueness imparted by a small dose of roasted barley. The beer is finished using the highest quality Mt. Hood hops.

This was one of the best beers that pumphouse produced to me it was a nice caramel flavor.

(growler 5/13/11). Clear amber color. Medium off white head. Moderate sweeet caramel and toast/malt aroma. Flavor of the same. Avg duration. Smooth finish. Slick texture. Moderate carbonation. Fair lacing.

slimchill (1044) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 28, 2010
Draught. Sweet caramel and cherry aroma. Dark ruby with a thin swirly head and slow but active carbonation. Good malt depth but a touch too sweet. Caramel with chocolate and nutty notes. Palate is thin, but more than that particularly watery, as in diluting of the flavor of the beer.

notalush (4631) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 27, 2009
Tap at the brewpub - a very malty amber ale, so much so that it is hard to even notice those hops trying to break through - very sweet, nutty, with touches of nutmeg and other spices (this makes things a little more interesting) - the boiled vegetable character I noticed in their IPA is even more noticeable here, and it really detracts from my enjoyment of the beer.

DJMonarch (9158) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2009
From the Jug at the Pumphouse Brewery & Restaurant, Longmont 08/10/2008 Malt aroma. Bronze golden coloured and malty with a crisp dry and slightly bitter finish.

That1Guy (1867) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Crushed with Jakebra at the brewpub. Sweet malt nose. Lots of sweetness. Definite initial hop bitterness that mellows into a very pleasant malt sweetness. One of the most appealing ambers I’ve ever had.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Tap @ Pumphouse: Poured a clear red copper color with a thin off-white head. The aroma was malty with some sweetness. Toasty caramel notes. The malty flavor had a little roast to it. Hints of chocolate and citrus. Semi-dry and bitter finish. Medium body.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2007
On tap at the brewpub on 10/14/07: Clear amber copper with a wispy-lacing light tan head. Aroma of lightly sweet and toasty caramel malt. Body starts about average and quite drinkable with a touch of sweet caramel malt and grapefruity hops toward a crisp, bittersweet finish. A decent amber.
