SDalkoholic (2179) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 16, 2004
Deep mahogany brown hue, and a thick fluffy head. Web lacing left behind, with a nutty and sweetly malted aroma. Flavor is bittering and well matched balance between malt and hops. A somewhat creamy texture. One of the better amber ales i’ve downed.

YogiBeera (2493) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 15, 2004
Red amber color, big frothy but fast diminishing head. Malt and band aid nose, medium bitter and malty taste. Good average beer.

meathookjones (245) - Sterling, Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2004
This came in a 22oz bomber with the usual rogue suspect on the front with an American flag behind him. This brew appeared a copper amber color with crystal clear clarity. A tall rocky beige head formed atop this that lasted for a while leaving sparse lacing about the glass. The aroma is mainly of caramel malt with some grassy hops sneaking in as this warmed a bit. Fairly simple smell but it is a fitting and pleasant one. Fairly hoppy in taste with both earthy and citric hops playing over caramel malt back bone. There was a bit of a roasted malt character as well, well balanced overall with a slightly bitter finish. Mouthfeel was medium with good carbonation and this is definitely a very drinkable brew. A refreshing beer that I could down several off in a session, one of my favorite amber ales.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 5, 2004
Dark copper. A bit darker than a penny. Creamy white head and pretty good lacing. Aroma is nicely hopped with some citrus notes. Piney a little. Roasted malts. Though I don’t really detect any of the coffee mentioned in the description. The flavor has more roasted qualities to it. The hops are lighter, but it’s nicely balanced. Pretty creamy palate and a nicely done bitter roast at the end.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2004
Pours amber (of course) with a two-finger head. Both roasted and pale malts are present in the aroma, along with some hops. Smooth beer with a nice, balanced flavor. Very drinkable.

piscator34 (1995) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - NOV 28, 2004
Dark amber in colour with an off white head. Aromas of roasted malts and both citrus and earthy hops. Full mouthfeel. Surprisingly malty (perhaps Munich malts?) up-front with a late hop kick. Pretty standard stuff fare from this brewery, but their standards are high. Good stuff!

SilkTork (5275) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 26, 2004
May, 2003: Big pint bottle. A pleasant, robust ale. Dark malt aroma. Sticky mouthfeel, warm earthy hops and a long, dry finish. Decent enough.

thehoff (596) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Deep murky amber color. Pretty thick tan head. Smells of citrus, coffee, woodchips. Nice beer. Lots of flavor, especially with the hops, bitter, has a nice coffee flavor that comes through after the initial tanginess. This is a really nice amber.

the hops enter through your nose as you endulge. Decent red color. Smooth and a bit light on the way down. A must try for anyone with class.
