COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is an American style amber ale with distinctive hop flavor and aroma. The hop character is a result of the blending of Mt. Hood and Willamette hops. It is highlighted by the light amber color and balanced by malt undertones. We recommend this beer for those who enjoy hop characteristics, but donít want to be overwhelmed by them.

Pours orangey copper with off-white head, almost no head retention whatsoever. Aromas of bready malt, some fruit (kind of a Twizzlers-like artificial smell), a bit of toffee and brown sugar. Taste is bread, toast, that artificial berry note again, toffee/caramel, and low-medium bitterness. Body is thin, very low carbonation. Wish I could speak more highly of this as itís from the largest brewery in my hometown, but itís just very underwhelming.

Rather flat tasting with little to differentiate it beyond an ale. Really nothing special in my experience. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Poured a copper color with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, bit of grain and citrus in the background. Taste of caramel sweetness with bit of citrus and grain. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly light body and smooth, with a touch of hops.

Draft pour pint at the xfinity arena. Royalties for the brand name drop? Concert beer, and a not new record for plastic cup beers in an evening. Pours a reddish copper color. I feel like my visual observations of amber ales has become quite redundant. Sweet, sugary maple like aroma. Almost like cinnamon. Weird. Nutty flavor, and sugar sweet. This is probably the best beer option at this arena. Note to self: there isnít very good beer at this arena.

Amber pour from the bottle with aromas of malt light caramel, minerals and feint hops. Flavors match the aromas with more mineral and light bitter finish than most.

Bottle from Grocery Outlet. Dark hazy amber in color. Nose is quite sweet and is dominated by dark fruit. Very bready up front. It then moves into a somewhat bitter hop flavor. Not very well balanced. Pretty mediocre attempt at an amber.

On tap at the Porterhouse, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma is perfumey and sweet. Flavour is around the same, with perfume, sweet malt, and light bready notes. Very bland sweetish amber. Not too good.

Where and how: bottle 355ml
Aroma milder hop feel with amber malt feel. Tad plain still pleasant enough. Mild nutty, woodsy backing.
Appearance :
Top: lighter white cap
Base: hazy bright amber.
Palate : medium-lighter body, milder carbonation, even watery
Taste: a bit mineral with its approach. Sweet caramel malts with nutty-leafy hints on side.
Other notes good as simple patio brew.

This is poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt red color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing sticking and then sliding down into the beer. The smell had a nice sweet roasty nutty to caramel maltiness. The taste was mainly roasty malty sweetness. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was good for the style and for me. Overall, decent amber nothing to go bonkers about but could possibly have again.
