gnoff (9253) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - APR 27, 2011
Draught as a 5 oz sampler at Pyramid in Sacramento, CA, on April 23, 2011
As "Alehouse Amber Ale"
Shady amber color, off-white head. Sweet, hoppy, malty, somewhat roasted taste. Moussy mouthfeel. A bit roasted aftertaste with hints of coffee, turns more fruity in the end. Medium bitterness. Fruity but also somewhat stale scent with sewage hints.

bnoel09 (563) - Elk Grove, California, USA - APR 1, 2011
Sample at the Sacramento location. Color is a dirty, rusty reddish brown. Aroma is malty with light spice. Flavor is smooth and malty. Not as sweet as most Ambers but it is really well balanced, has sort of a rye flavor. Overall a very good amber ale.

Zymurgeist2 (1522) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 2, 2011
On draught at the Oakland Airport. Pours a very hazy burnt orange with tan head of small, tiny bubbles. Lots of rich malt and wheat on the nose. Medium-full mouthfeel with chewy biscuit. Taste is heavy malt that is slightly sweet and taste lingers around the mouth. I might be a little generous on the score as it is pretty darn good for an airport beer.
