the pale tan head lasts forever. roasted malt gives this beer a warm flavor. very very smooth with a dry almost bitter finish

Bottle - sweet malt aroma with a touch of a grassy hop. Nice, cloudy amber body with a beige head atop. Very nice sweet malt flavor with just enough bitterness to balance it. Medium fizzy body. As ambers go, this is an excellent one. I never really thought that I liked ambers, but it is amazing what a difference getting a good one can make. Pretty much all the ambers I’d had for a long time was something like Killians Red. Even though that was quite a while ago, that thought has stuck. Now that I’ve had this one and the one from Bells I know that an amber can be a fine beer.

22z bottle. Reddish amber color (I guess that means tawny?) Quickly diminishing head with small bubbles. Rich, chocolate malt nose. Slight hop alcohol burn in the nostrils. Smooth flavor with roasted coffee maltiness. Light hop finish. Both hop and malt flavors linger in the mouth; malt on the tip, hops on the sides of the tongue. Second glass, more yeasty in the nose. But still good amount of chocolate. Slight more amount of caramel malt in the mouth. I’m in consensus with most saying that it is a smooth easy amber!

A slightly cloudy amber with a tan head and a pleasant light hop aroma. This is one smooth, fast-flowing beer. None of the funkiness of regular ambers, probably due to the increased hop presence. A top notch amber.

Very nice amber/deep red color with nice head. Very little aroma if any. A clean smooth drink but the flavor is very simple and plain. No complexity to this ale.

GirlyBeer (190) - Old Orchard Beach, Maine, USA - AUG 12, 2005
Hoppy aroma, good, dark color, with a head like an ice cream float. The kind of head where you can fill the glass more than full but the head won’t run down the sides. Very flavorful, roasty, not too hoppy, not too few hops, coffee finish. Overall, a very good beer, but somewhat think on the mouthfeel.

Bottle poured a hazy amber with an amber head. Aromas of bread and carmel. Flavor is citrusy hops quickly chased away by flavors of bread and carmel with a bitter finish.

Doughy bread aroma to this beer. Amber body with a tan head and some lacing. Hops rule the flavor of this beer. Seemed like more alcohol flavor than anything else. Cool and crisp like a good beer should be for me anyway.
