Can. Pours with a clear amber-bronze hued body with a small white head that fades. Aromas are malty, grainy, toasty, lightly nutty. Medium fruity esters. Minimal hop. Flavors are estery, raisins, grainy, toasty and nutty. No hop character and bitterness only to balance. Dry malt character, much more toasted than caramelized (which I appreciate). Medium bodied with a dry finish. I’m surprised that I actually somewhat like this amber ale (a style I don’t much care for). Much better than anticipated.

Pours an amber color with a sugar and caramel malt aroma. Taste is similar, with a sweet toffee flavor that leaves a minimal bitterness after the swallow.

valpoaj (707) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Tap pour - translucent medium brown body with a thick whitish head. Aroma is sweet malt, caramel, roastiness...not much otherwise. Flavor is heavy on the roasted caramelized malts, very sweet, and very one-dimensional. Palate is medium carbonation. Not much to write on this one...quite boring, even for the style...

Pailhead (6278) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2014
On tap: The aroma is lightly fruity with a touch of caramel and faint nuts. It’s a transparent amber with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with light-moderate fruit and a touch of caramel. The finish has light toasty notes and a touch of roasted nuts. It’s light bodied with mild carbonation.

Can, thanks Josh! Pours a clean dark amber with nice foamy white head. Aroma of bread. Medium/light body with some subtle toffee/caramel flavors. Finishes smooth with some sweetness. Not bad.

Epicenter is a smooth, malty, amber. Malt of caramel and a little nutty but not too much. Smooth smooth smooth, I really like this amber although my real love is IPA.
