Bottle from Berkeley that did not twist off. Sam Adams glass. Nice coppery amber color with a multifinger, fine off-white head. Mildly bready and mildly hoppy for aroma. Full bodied with creamy carbonation. Flavor is lightly sweet with some offsetting noble hop. A very good lager. Surprising, coming from me.

daknole (10346) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Dark orange pour with a very light tan head. Aroma is sweet with some perfumey notes. No hops evident in the smell. Flavor has a slight hop tingle, honey, rose petals and ruby red grapefuit juice. Very different take on the style.

marcus (7819) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 20, 2009
This amber ale poured with a massive off-white head that bubble away pretty quickly. There is a grassy aroma and a bready hop bitterness, with some spice at the finish.

12 oz bottle from the Utah State Wine Store. Pours a clear amber color with some redness and a medium white head. A rich malty and caramel nose. The flavor is crisp malts, light hops and some metal. Light caramel also. Decent and very drinkable.

Bottle:   Golden amber, fairly clear, light carbonation, fairly large off-white head, decent lacing.   Faint malty nose, a little cereal, make that a bit more cereal as it warms.   Slight tin on the backside, otherwise a little metallic kapow.   Started okay, but the backside is a little rough.   Decent malt base, body and mouthfeel are moderate.   When it was really cold I thought it would have gone great with pizza, now thinking after it has warmed up that its not as good as I first thought.   Middle of the road that could use a bit of work.   Pretty much what I would have expected for a Pyramid.   Non-offensive but not top notch.   Meh...

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Tap at Seattle Alehouse location. The aroma is somewhat grassy and peppery with some caramel malt and toast as well. Pours golden amber with a thin fluffy head. Flavors of bready malts, some sweetness, and a rather hoppier than usual grass profile as well as some pepper. Nothing amazing, but a decent solid effort.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Bottle: Rollick?! Ugh. Red color, earthy hops, light malt and a toasty finish. What more could I possibly say about a boring beer style made by a boring beer company known for generic micros? I prefer the costco stuff over this.

Sampled on 2/4/2009. This amber ale pours a medium amber color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is caramel malts, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied amber. The malts are caramel and sweet. The hops are earthy. Nice balance. Tends toward the sweet malts. Good carbonation. Mouthfeel is full. Finish and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

nuplastikk (5170) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 22, 2009
12oz shorty bottle. Highly filtered amber-tan, almost transparent. Nice frothy head. Piny, soapy hops and brewery malt. The taste is malt centered, with a solid hop backbone. Some smooth caramel flavors, very well balanced. This finish is a touch thin, but it does help keep it drinkable. Above par Amber in my opinion.
