I was very impressed by this beer. Very good balance, malty and hoppy. A very good example of the style. I think this is an excellent ’gateway’ beer for the Budmilloor’s crowd.

I definitely like this one. One of my acquisitions from Corral Liqors. Very Good. I like Ambers. I've bought and tried three Pyramid Products. Of the three this is the best. Would I recommend it? You bet!!! Hint of caramel and bitter flavor. Very nice.

User_ex is right about the pine and floral notes. A fairly sweet and non-bitter amber ale that’s suitable for easy summer drinking. A real malt-fest, here.

Another great seasonal from Pyramid. The palate is smooth and robust. I drink it like water after I mow the lawn for the last time in October... It is sometime on tap at the brewery across from Safeco field in Seattle. Great to pound a few back on a Saturday afternoon and watch the mariners play.
