Davhgbrew (931) - Coconut Creek, Florida, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Poured dark amber w/ little to no head. Aroma of malt. Carbonation on the tongue is very strong and tingly. Smooth sipping. Tastes of caramel, bread, malt and hops. Finish is dry and delicious. Low abv w/ no alc taste at all. Could drink this one all day at the pub. Very nice brew!

obguthr (3665) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Honey and pineapple nose, with lesser pine notes. Hazy amber, thick yellow head. Grapefruit peel and pine flavor, not IPA strength, but hoppy for an amber. Intermittent teasing of honey to give the illusion of balance, which is nice, but this is unmistakably hop forward. Medium body, easy carbonation. Another solid pale ale masquerading as an amber, not that there’s anything wrong with that.

12oz bottle. Murky amber-brown. Nice, mellow hop and amber/caramel malt aroma. I’m not the biggest Amber/Red fan, but this one is pretty solid. Big hops up front, but also a big, rich malt presence. Sugary, sort of sticky specialty malt feel. Big hop bill more than balances it out. Quite a well-executed beer.

Ibrew2or3 (6782) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 26, 2013
12oz bottle pours with a clear amber body and copper edges supporting a dirty white head of foam. The modest aroma offers up malts, some roasted malts, muted pine hops and then a mild mix of earthy tea hops, slight citrus hard candy note and fruity esters. Smells alright. The taste is similar with pine and earthy tea like hops that are having a good time together and deliver a pleasing load of hop bitterness. Behind these hops are bits of citrus hops, roasted malts and a biscuit malt note. Pretty darn nice hop forward session brew.

12 oz. Pours a fully hazy dark amber with golden brown edges. Loosely scattered tan head. Not much lace. Biscuity, toasty nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, biscuit, and iced tea on the mid palate, leading to a toasted hopped finish with some linger to it. Not bad.

yngwie (13209) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 30, 2013
Bottle, 22oz. A lightly hazy beer, amber in color and topped by a small, dense, off-white to light beige head. Quite hoppy aroma, piney and citrusy, with caramel maltyness in the back. Some bitterness in the flavor, but not too much, balancing the caramel maltyness quite good. Full body with pleasant carbonation. Citrus peel and some tropical fruit notes in the else bitter and caramel malty finish. Sure a tasteful one, drinks easy, but it’s a bit too malty on a summer day this hot. 130630

CampesinoTino (753) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 2, 2011
Bomber. Pours a clear amber color with an inch of foamy off-white head. The aroma has hints of grassy hops, citrus peel and earthy malt. The taste starts with mild grapefruit and nutty malt flavors along with some caramel and tart citrus. The body has medium-level carbonation with some creaminess to it along with a dry, bitter finish and slight grapefruit aftertaste. Overall, a smooth and easy drinking brew that’s a little more balanced than their Amber Ale.

hayduke (3322) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 3, 2012
Purchased from the brewpub in Everett. Pours a dear clear amber color with quick to rise and quick to settle big bubbled off-white head. The nose shows roasted caramel malts and floral, citrus, and grassy hops. Medium in body with a smooth clean mouthfeel. The flavor mirrors the aroma with citrus even more prominent and the finish is dry and bitter. Well balanced and quite good.

fiulijn (14350) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 1, 2013
Draught at the brewpub, 6-4-7-4-13=34
Hazy amber color with small creamy head. There is an earthy touch both in the aroma and flavor; the flavor is basically caramel, with a good bitterness level and mild hop qualities (some resins). Good.

Nitro at the brewpub, 6-4-7-3-13=33
Hazy amber color with obvious creamy head; it seems darker than the CO2 version. Smoother mouthfeel; the earthy touch is now almost absent, just the good caramel is left; similar to the other version, but some of the pleasant edges of it don’t appear here, especially the final is blander.
