Barreras (1047) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - OCT 13, 2013
Pours a copper color with a malty aroma. Taste is really bitter for an American Amber beer. The IBU’s and hops comes through especially after the swallow. Slightly more bitter than expected, not complex but very simple and easy drinking.

On cask at Tustin’s during RBSG 2012. It’s certainly quite hoppy, with a bit of citrus and other fruit and a big bitter/astringent note, but even ample hopping can’t cover up the scourge that is crystal malt. Why not just steep a dirty teabag in each glass?

On tap at Mohawk Bend. Solid beer. Again, they do nice things with hops. Nothing to write home about but it's tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Interesting amber ale on tap at the brewery, great name, but nothing too crazy about this

Itzjerm (1395) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - NOV 14, 2013
A nice hopped amber. Nice carbonation and mouthfeel. It's like a weak tongue buckler. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

daknole (9437) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 7, 2012
Amber pour at Tustin. Aroma has light nuts, some floral hops, yeast. Flavor is standard and pretty boring. Bready malts, some hops. Meh.

RedSox2004 (1323) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Amber color with a one-finger off-white head and ok lace. Mild dark fruit aromas with chocolate malt and earthy hops. Slight caramel sweetness with hints of grapefruit and pine. Medium body, minimal carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a clean finish.

StefanSD (2191) - Lakeside, California, USA - DEC 18, 2014
500 ml bottle. Pours a nice amber color with a medium beige head that has fair retention. The aroma is lightly nutty with some grapefruit and pine poking through. The taste is a good dose of toffee malts backed up aggressively by hops that both piney and citrusy. Some nuts, yeast and bread dough are also milling about. The palate is full and a bit slick, and the carbonation is lively. Finishes long and dry. Overall: sigh--another amber ale-- drinkable, but not really worth seeking out again.
