DiarmaidBHK (3387) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2011 Ice beer? Is that the stuff they used to make at the fantastical Plank Road Brewery? As you can imagine it’s rather amber. Not much aroma on the nose. A slight caramel note on the tongue. Meh!

Foxbush (1258) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 12, 2011
This was sampled at the brewery on a trip home from Cleveland. The ale poured a clear amber and small head. There was some bitterness and balanced with higher alcohol. I like their mug program for regular customers.

Dogbrick (7666) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Sample at the brewpub. Not sure what an "amber ice beer" is but here goes. The beer is a clear dark amber color with a thin light tan head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of sweet malt and dark fruit. Light body with flavors of caramel malt, fruit and mild hops. The finish is sweet and malty. Barely average overall.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4843) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 12, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 3, 2011 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a dark caramel-amber color with a small beige head. The aroma was faint tangy and sour malts. The flavor was tangy and faintly bitter with light fruity and floral hops and a dry nutty undertone. The finish was short, crisp and fruity. Decent.

zach8270 (3376) - Henrietta, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2009
(draft @ Rivertowne Pour House - Monroeville, PA) Lightly hazy amber pour with a fluffy white head. Biscuity aroma mixes with some dry hops and very light citrus. Flavor is very mild. Some dry hops mixing with sweet malts at the finish. Nicely balanced but rather watery.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Draught at Monroeville: Aroma of graham crackers. Poured amber in color with a small, off-white head that diminished but lasted around the edges. Clear. Not sparkling. Looks thin. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of malts, light hops, slight grains, slight caramel, and corn. Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Malt, grain, and slight caramel finish.

cheap (3973) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Pale yellow lager color. No head. Slight fruity smell. Not as strong as 6% would indicate on the palate. Rather laid back for a higher alky brew. Just enough personality to let you know this is an ale. Mild unhoppy finish. I don’t think this is 6%! Too nice.

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 9/20
Nate (3648) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2009
Draught sample from the Pour House. Light raw grain aroma - a tad sour or of unfermented sugar. Mild grassy hops. Clear amber with no head. Medium-light body with medium-high carbonation. Starts with some decent malt character but then hits that sweet-tangy sugar note. A bit odd ... stale? Dry nutty bitter finish.
