Nice pour and appearance. Sure is full of hops, but the malts come through as well, making it very drinkable, actually surprisingly good.

Amber in colour with a lasting beige head. Nutty malt aroma, with a similar flavour. Mostly just mild nutty cara with some hoppy notes. Not bad.

UPDATED: DEC 15, 2005 Reddish hazy amber appearance with minimal white head. Caramel, cookies and and floral hops in aroma. Clean flavour of caramel, toasted bread, toffee and plums. Quite thin body. Bitter aftertaste. Very nice session beer.

Some people around my hometown of Newport, OR swear by American Amber. Me personally... I think it’s just a decent ale. The aroma is awesome, the appearence is intising... then once it finally comes down to endulging in this ale, it comes off almost harsh. Comming from Rogue’s hometown, I know Rogue has so much more to offer the beer lover than this ale displays.

I gave in and decided to buy this because they apparently have to change thier label. I cant believe I have never had this before. Nice deep amber and an off white head. Aroma is nice and citrucy with some good herbal/earthy hints. Flavor is sweet.caramel and lots of malty tones with some good hop highlights. Finishes smooth and slightly sweet with some good bitterness in the end. One of the best amber ales I have had.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber - Pours a dark amber ale with a bubbly whitish head. Aroma is of both citrus hops and sweet malt. Flavor is malty/caramel with a good amount of hop bitterness; quite nicely balanced. Finish is clean and pretty dry with a nicely balance mallt/hop/bitter afterglow. I like this one...
