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. Iím surprised that I actually somewhat like this amber ale (a style I donít much care for). Much better than anticipated.

Pailhead (5097) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2014
On tap: The aroma is lightly fruity with a touch of caramel and faint nuts. Itís 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. Itís 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.

A reddish amber ale with a thin off white head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with light nutty notes, grassy hops, OK. In mouth, a sweet fruity caramel malt with light grassy hops, boring. On tap at Chandler location.
