Bottle. A smoky amber ale that pours dark cherry red with a medium head. Body is a little thin, but overall there is a nice blend of roasted, malty, grassy flavors to make this a decent drink.

Pale amber beer with a thin white head. Aroma is lighlty sweet and a little bit nutty. Sweet caramel malt and a touch of light woody/earthy hops. There is a light roasty almost sour aroma and flavour on the back. Meh... this is a really poor brew. Metallic bitterness and thin sour malts.

This isn’t a bad amber ale, but it isn’t a great one, either. This beer pours a dark ruby red color with a small, tan head. Even though there isn’t much of a head on this beer, it does leave a generous lacing around the glass. The aroma is mostly of malt, with notes of caramel, brown sugar and a hint of flowery hops. The body is medium in strength and allows for easy drinking. The flavors are fairly balanced, with a nice mix of rich maltiness and bitter hops. The hops are especially noted toward the finish. There also seemed to be subtle hints of roasted coffee or chocolate in the body as well. The finish was a little bitter with some grassy notes. Like I mentioned at the start, this is a good amber ale, but not a great one. It’s drinkable and enjoyable, but I’m not sure I’d order another at a bar or pub.

DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - DEC 2, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2008 Bottle. Sweet malty aroma. Hazy brown amber body, off-white head. Mild floral and caramel flavor. Malty finish. Not great.

12oz. Bottle: Aroma of toasted malts, caramel, and bitter hops. Poured red with hints of deep orange, deep amber, and ruby in color, with a medium-sized, dense, tan head that diminished quickly but left a thin film. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Full of tiny particles. Lightly sweet flavor. Tastes of malts, toasting, and resinous hops. Medium body. Thin, watery, then chalky texture. Average carbonation. Malty, chalky, thin finish. Not very tasty. Very thin.

The "clean" description is accurate, and I agree 100% with the reviewer who would like to have this with pizza or nachos. This isn’t a top-shelf beer, but it’s a good lawnmower beer with just enough flavor to keep it interesting. Not bad!

probstblueribbon (2871) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 21, 2008
12 fl. oz. bottle via Lubiere, served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.

App.: Fairly deep copper, clear with a moderate tan head. Aroma: Slightly funky and skunky nutty, tangy malts, some light berry fruitiness, a touch of medium-roasted coffee and a little brown sugar, somewhat earthy. Palate: Medium-ish body, fairly soft carbonation. Flav.: Sorta like the nose: earthy, musty, some restrained malts, a little nuttiness and some light berry fruits; fairly dry with a little bitterness and a touch of musty hops to finish.

Underwhelming.

From a 12 fl. oz. bottle with a date of March 28. I think that was the date it was brewed and I expect it was 2008. Pours a ruby red-amber tone with a beige head. Aroma of sweet malts and caramel or maybe honey. Medium mouthfeel. The taste is hoppier than the aroma. Also some malts. Overall a pretty decent brew.

Dacrza (494) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUN 7, 2008
Pours a dark brown, dense body wih a thin white head--solid for an amber... a nice balance of hops and malts, smooth and pleasant... slightly effervescent, quite drinkable--medium-bodied to the mouthfeel... nice malty sweetness with a sense of herbal fruitiness and a bit of caramel in the finish... a solid amber, versatile and consistent... I’d revisit this as a companion to nachos or pizza... can’t be too critical of this type tonight, although I see other reviewers have been more than that...

bottle poured a red amber color with a thin off white head and a steady rush of carbonation. aroma has some caramel, dry hops, and malt. mouth feel is medium light with heavy carbonation. flavor has caramel malts with light dry hops and a touch of citrus and sweetness. thin but the flavor itself is pretty good overall. goes down easy, could see a few consumed on a hot day.
