Bomber. Pours clear copper with a diminishing head. Aroma is light fruity hops, slightly sour. Caramel malts, light floral hopping in the palate. Some oxidation really detracts. Light metallics. Seems a little unfinished/unfermented too. Body is very light.

Draft at the source. A,ber color (logical I guess). Sweet caramel aroma, bittersweet taste. OK.

It’s a perfectly GOOD amber...but I would not go as far as to say "great" and here’s why...on tap at the brewery, pours a murky brown amber in color, minimal head, absolutely no clarity in the glass...African mudwater. Aroma hints at light roast nuts and slight citrus. Tastes like a fairly tame and well-mannered amber ale, nutty malt, light citrus hops with notes of hay and grapefruit. Suspended yeast definitely adds to a fuller mouthfeel yet an ugly looking pint. Fruity esthers carry it through the finish. A very casual american amber ale, not extremely hopped or high gravity like some.

Pint @ The Traveler. Inoffensive though ultimately unmemorable amber. Pours a pretty copper color. Taste vaguely malty, but mostly just watery. Should have ordered Loco Red instead.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught at brewpub, 4.2% ABV
Hazy amber color with compact head. It has light caramel aroma and flavor, correct bitterness, extremely light fruity esters. Correctly brewed but somehow boring.

Same as snakeoilpete, this just says amber at Safeco field. Malty but some good floral hops in the aroma as well. This is quite nice. Floral, fruity, maltus up front, hops later, this is quite nice. I may have given this a higher score than the IPA.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Dark gold with a small head. Balanced aroma of malts and small amount of hops. Flavor is mainly malts with a metallic finish and maybe a bit sour. Sub-par amber ale. Thanks Indiana Red.

Bottle Thanks to IndianaRed. Pours out a copper topped with a small head. Aroma is of light grain and malts. Taste of light malts grain and a little sweetness. A touch of bitterness at the end.
