bnoel09 (416) - 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 (961) - 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.

Ferris (3082) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 7, 2012
Draft - Mild roasted malt nose with a touch of spice. Cloudy amber with very rich head. In the days where more is more the simplicity of this beer is nice. Malty and nutty with no hops or bitterness. A bit too light on body but a nice example of an amber.

theisti (3185) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JAN 13, 2010
6 oz sampler pour at the Seattle location of the brewery. Pour is a hazy brown copper orange with a smallish off white head. Aroma is malty sweet, some dark fruits and minimal toast and roast - overall pretty mild. Taste is malt forward, same character as nose. Palate is unfiltered, thin to medium bodied. Straight forward and nice enough amber.

Toasted bread and doughy yeast aroma, some light fruity hop aromas. Pours dark amber, cloudy, unfultered, decent creamy white head, light lace. Flavors of doughy yeast, toast, caramel, lightly acidic hops. Almost chewy mouthfeel.
