Great beer. Nice deep brown appearance. BIg frothy head. Decent hoppy aroma, good roasted malty flavor. Seemed more like a vienna to me. Very good.

beautiful amber color, a small creamy head. A perfect balance of hops and malt. If this is an American amber...then i’m damn proad to be an American!

Thanks to bonvivant aka Mike at Bon Vivant for this! Dark bronze body. Almost no head. Aroma is VERY hoppy and citrusy along with some lighter spice notes. Taste is also suitably hoppy and bitterr with some sweetened toffee notes hiding underneath. Some moderate spice in the taste along with a bittersweet note throughout. Mouthfeel is a bit bitter along with some carbonation. Finish is bittersweet. Damn nice beer though!

2004 NABA Festival: Dark mahogany. Smells of fruit and spice. Bitter grapefruit taste. Smooth after taste.

Amber, but not quite as dark as i expected... still looked nice. Aroma was very hoppy and slightly sweet smelling. Flavor was wonderfully balanced... to me, this is what a lot of the "big beers" should be more like... very hoppy, very malty, but it still works together... take a lesson Bigfoot. Actually this beer was very simular to Arrogant Bastard to me.

On tap. A dark amber pour, lacking in complexity. The hop profile was quite generous. She starts more smoothly thant she finishes. Overall, average in nearly every way.

Pours an amber color, very little head than thins out very quickly. Nose is of sweet caramel malts and a bit of fruity hops. Flavor is initially hop fruitiness, followed by some great maltiness, and a grassy finish. Begins sweet, finishes bitter. Pretty deent, all in all.

A perfect beer to share with your non-adventurous friends! Copper-toned with a roasty nose with a nice underlying hoppy aroma, this is smooth, light and refreshing. Not big on complexity, but big on fresh malt flavor. Finishes with just enough PacWest hops to satisfy the beergeek and not offend the Lite beer drinkers at your next BBQ!
