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.

maekchu (3351) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Sour fruity nose, dates, dark fruit, seaweed, and smoke(?). Quite fragrant. Pinkish Amber color. Very sweet initial, with berries, overripe peaches, moderately sharp hopping. Medium body. Very sharp fruit flavors. Quite heavy for an amber. Getting a bit close to its drink-by date... Maybe too ripe?

penstemon (224) - Washington, USA - FEB 1, 2016
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.

mjg74 (2953) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 20, 2015
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.
