Clear amber with a white head. Decent aroma is caramel sweet with floral hops. Smooth medium body. Flavor is sweet caramel malt with light pit fruits, nicely bitter floral hops, and minerally, organic free range coastal water. Not that bad, actually.

Fruity malt aroma sits atop an orange amber brew wiith a thick white head. Rich and malty, nice caramel presence, with a spicy, fruit hop presence. Just enough to keep me happy. Very frothy and full mouthfeel. Leave a nice happy mouth, I like it.

Surprised by this beer, was not expecting much and got a nice full bodied amber that had some great malt and hop notes.

Bottle. Unfiltered cloudy/muddy brown and amber colored body, dirty and unattractive. Nose is semi-ripe (and semi-overripe/moldy) oranges and a bread crust malts with a significant presence of that pacman yeast - slightly sulfuric mold and bread with an acidic-like tanginess. Rich and full body, chewy and frothy, but with some harshness developing late on the back of the tongue. Chewy and full creamed orange and soggy bread finish this one. nice enough.

Tap @ Bailey’s Taproom... Poured orange-ish with qan off-white head, nice lacing. Sweet, florally aroma. Came off more like a pale ale to me rather than an amber. Light palate with citrusy fruit flavors, mild hops and malts. Cracker and biscuit malts in the finish.

Bomber, pours a nice medium dark amber hue, somewhat hazy (surprisingly). Formed good size medium beige foamy head, aroma of hops, malts, grass and earth. Impressive so, for an amber. Beer flavour was of hops, peppery flowers, malts and crisp irish rocky water. Somewhat creamy in the end that gives this beer a wonderful drink ability. For an amber type beer, this is wonderful, damn how did they do it? Good job Rogue....

Great orange/brown/yellow hues like leaves on a maple tree in the fall. Tall fluffy head. Soft balance of malt and hops in the aroma, even keeled. Hoppy side of amber up front, dominating the malt throughout. Settles down in the end into a creamy finish.

22oz from Whole Foods in Portland. Slightly hazy amber w/ good head. Bready malts with deep, but not sharp, prolonged bitterness. As far as amber ales go, this would do the trick any day. It’s sessionable and has more hop presence than your averge amber. It’s not going to blow you away. Carbonation in my bottle is absolutely fine.
