bhensonb (11678) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 23, 2015
Bottle from Bine & Vine. Pours copper with a beige head. Aroma is musty malt with a hint of hop. Med body. Flavor is malty, moderately hoppy, and I think there’s a hint of chocolate. More and more variegated flavor than most ambers, and the hop is a nice touch, but the musty malt aspect is not appealing. Not an amber fan, but this is much better than many, many, many.

Dogbrick (8812) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Sample at the Aces & Ales Winter Beer Fest on 01/16/2015. Pours a clear amber color with a medium foamy off-white head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel and mild hops. Light to medium body with flavors of caramel malt, herbal hops and a bit of fruit. The finish is malty up front with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

TimE (3466) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 30, 2014
Amber color. Lots crystal malts, with apricots and pine. Slightly spicy nose. Medium body, much more fruity. Good balance. Nice aggressive hoppy finish.

hopwine (430) - Bend, Oregon, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Piney, resiny, sweet bread nose. Flavor is same plus soft fruit, mild toffee, and candied citrus. Really nice and balanced

StefanSD (2217) - 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.

RedSox2004 (1351) - 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.

Itzjerm (1423) - 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

Barreras (1082) - 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.

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