Bottle - could not pour out of bottle to see, malty aroma and flavor, notes of nuttiness, not sweet like many amber ales so it was pretty different in a good way

Bottle. Pours clear deep reddish amber with a medium creamy tan head that laces well. Aroma is malty - caramel, toffee, grass. Flavor is the same, interesting actually. Must be using English hops. Medium sweet, some honey notes, light grassy bitterness. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Better than its rating for sure.

Opaque dark brown. Nice hoppy smell and taste. Caramel and candy bar tasting. In my opinion this is a good winter ale. First beer from this brewery, and not a bad start at all.

This american amber wonít excite hop-heads, but I find the malty sweetness to be delicious. Itís a medium gold color with a modest head of foam. The nose doesnít have much complexity and the taste is rather straight forward (with the malts shining). Great session beer.

Dark amber, malt aroma with some fruits. Bland but ok. Grew on me as I drank it. Sweetness was nice but body was a listless. Like the profile and the malt backbone.
