COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Crafted from a blend of three malts and German Northern Brewer hops. A smooth and malty beer that is perfectly balanced.

Fatehunter (1076) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Pours a thin head on a hazy amber colored body. The aroma is grainy and malty. Like a bag of wet barley. The taste is lots of barley, grain with mild lemon bitterness. Great use of the malt side. The texture is softer with moderate carbonation. Here’s an amber ale that’s malt forward. A nice exception to the currently popular bold hoppy amber ales.

brokensail (9921) - Orange County, California, USA - NOV 28, 2012
Dark amber color with a khaki colored head. Slight roast character along with toffee, nuts, and caramel. Very grassy hop character, light citrus, and some floral hops. Semi-sweet flavor of toffee, toast, and caramel. A bit of roasted malt and nut, some chocolate, and grassy hops. Light bitterness of pine and citrus rind.

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 31, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. Clear dark amber pour with a wispy white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of sweet malt and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of toasted malt, caramel and hops. The finish is sweet with a malty aftertaste. Decent overall.

joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - JUN 4, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. It pours reddish with and off white head. The aroma is slightly toasted with some berries and caramel, and a good dose of herbal hops. The flavor is caramel, toast, and generous hop bitterness in the finish. An above average amber ale.

DYCSoccer17 (3226) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Pint on tap at the brewpub. Light caramel malt aroma. Some sweetness is present. Light metallic hop notes are also in there. Aroma is OK. Transparent amber body with copper hues present. Small, off-white head and scant lacing. Lots of caramel malt sweetness to start. Rather sweet before this becomes more toasted with a small amount of roastiness. Finishes with metallic, herbal, earthy hop bitterness. A solid amber ale.

JaBier (4528) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2010
Sample at the brewpub on 8/7/10. Clear red pour with a medium beige head. Crystal and caramel malt aroma with some cherry and a bit of hop. Flavor is malty with some caramel influence, but has a nice bitter hop balance. Very nicely done amber.

rayOfBeer (652) - El Cerrito, California, USA - JUN 8, 2009
Poured from tap a hazy caramel brown with thin off-white head. The aroma was light with some grass and grain. Flavor was rather dry in my opinion with lots of grass bitterness and a light toasted grain note. Overall, profile was rather bitter from start to finish with not much going on flavor-wise, not bad, but, just not one I would get again.

marcus (6015) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 5, 2009
On tap at the brewery. This reddish brown ale poured with a thin beige head that dissipated right away. There is a toffee aroma and a sweet malt flavor with a carbonated bitter finish.

JohnnyJ (4080) - San Diego, California, USA - JUN 29, 2008
On tap. Pours a dark amber with offwhite head. Caramel, grassy hops, citrus, sweet malt, bread, and floral notes. More bitterness then usual for an amber, which is good.
