Poured deep copper with an offwhite head that was pretty fluffy. Sweet malt dominates the aroma. Very solid beer. The initial flavor is fairly hoppy and bitter, but gives way to a nice, sweet amber malt. There are a few notes of roast in the finish, but it’s still clean.

Bottled. Hazy brown colour with beige foamy head. Hoppy halfsweet ctiric aroma with hints of caramel and flowers. Hoppy bitter flavour which turns into softer fruity hops in finish. Grapefruit in aftertaste.

BeerandBlues2 (10503) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 3, 2005
Bottle. Pours coppery caramel brown with a small tan head, a little rocky and dissipates quickly. Complex inviting aroma of sweet coffee, toffee and caramel malts with a floral hop nose. Citrusy hop flavor, grapefruit, and a caramel malt body with a hint of creamy toffee. Medium and fizzy palate, warming.

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2005
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2008 (Bottled) Hazy reddish amber with a small, firm head. Quite strong and pleasant, aromatic-nutty-hoppy aroma with berries and dried fruit. Caramely-malty, fruity flavor with mild roastiness and lots of nutty, aromatic hops. Firm, but not intrusive hop bitterness. Medium-bodied, slicky and quite low-carbonated palate. A very nice, balanced and flavorful amber ale.

PullMeABeer (203) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Bottle. (22oz) Pours a slightly cloudy brownish amber. Thin head, and medium lacing. Both the roast malts and the blend of hops mix in the aroma to form a piney, toffee, resiney boque. Just amazing. Flavor is creamy and very balanced. The woody hops initaly hit you subetly then there is an underlying almost chocolate roast malt backbone. Wonderful amber!! Highly drinkable, with a medium mouthfeel. "Memorial Day Hot Dog Cookoff"

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 23, 2005
Pours a murky dark amber color with a thin offwhite head. Appealing aroma of floral and peppery hops. Enjoyable flavor of floral and peppery hops with a pretty good malt base that gives out a caramel flavor. The body is full with a creamy texture, the carbonation level is moderate. That’s one of the best amber ales available, I’m not a fan of the style but I like this one quite a lot.

fatty (363) - Perkiomenville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2005
Pours a rich copper / amber color with a large but diminishing tan head. Very hoppy but sweet aroma. Taste of hops and blended malts with a sweet, light fruit and caramel overtone. Smooth creamy palate with a bitter smooth finish.

koatis (50) - Maryland, USA - MAY 20, 2005
12 oz. bottle. Nice blend of hops and malt. A bit heavier than one might expect from an amber ale, but a tasty treat nonetheless. A bit expensive to drink often.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2005
22 oz. bottle. Dark amber colour with a thick, mostly lasting frothy off-white head. Bready, caramel, malts and piny grapefruit hop aroma. Caramel and light chocolate flavours with a piny and grapefruit bitter finish. Medium bodied, a bit juicy.

atpayne (615) - Zionsville, Indiana, USA - MAY 15, 2005
Farily dark and cloudy standard brown pour. The aroma is quite malty; roasted and barleywine like aromas and dark fruits. Not what I expected from the aroma. Flavor is malty, large fruits, sweet, but only a little hop flavor. Really not the beer that I expected because it seems to have an almost barleywine like character, but it is still fairly nice.
