Bottle. Poured a clear amber color witha small white head. no lacing on the glass. Aroma is overpowered by yeast and malt. no hop presense whatsoever which is what i look for in a good amber ale. Not much here, a dry, unimpressive aftertaste. over carbonated.

nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2009
12 oz bottle purchased at Woody’s in Cool Springs. Poured a clear amber/red color with a two finger white head. The aroma wasn’t much. Sweet malt and yeast. The flavor was actually enjoyable. There was a sourness present, along with some caramel and sweet malt. This was an enjoyable brew.

12oz bottle. Pours an off-white head with a hazy, amber colored body. Smells like biscuits and honey. Tastes sour and metallic.

650ml brown bottle. An hazy orangey brown coloured beer with a thin but creamy head. Aroma is fairly straightforward caramel malt. Flavour is also of caramel malt, finishes with some leafy hops. Light bitter aftertaste. Medium bodied with mild carbonation. Drinkable, decent amber ale.

popery (1419) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 22, 2008
An amber ale with a good malt flavor and an unfortunate tinny undertone. The beer pours an alright color for an amber. The head puffs up quickly but dissipates very quickly. The smell is sweet with malt, but a tinny note rears its ugly head. The flavor is similar with an overly sweet maltiness. Hops are present in flavor and taste but rather anemic ultimately, and the sweet malt drowns them out largely for the tongue. The feel is better than it was for Pyramid Apricot Ale, my only other stab at Pyramid that I wrote notes for. The carbonation is still not quite right, but not bad either. It is fairly drinkable and would be even more so if not for the tinniness.

pours an amber-copper colour with a thin tan head. Aroma is dusty malt, light fruit, wheat cracker tones. Thin and flatish palate, biscuity malt and semi-sweet malt body.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 1, 2008
Clear, light copper color pour with a thin tan head. Light aroma of toasted grain, sweet malt and hops. Slightly sweet flavor of malt and light fruit, followed by a mild hoppy finish. Not bad to enjoy once a year.

presario (4626) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 28, 2008
Thin light brown head on copper. Soft caramel aroma. Hint of vanilla and a trace of tin. A drinkable autumn beer. Amped up amber or lite winter warmer. Malty, a touch of spiciness. A tinge of metallic. Vanilla notes are not overdone. Light caramel toffee with a nice dose of hops.
