Desert Amber is an Amber Ale with the just right amount of malt, bitterness, and lots of hop flavor to make each taste an exercise in pleasure.

Amber pour, off white head. Nice caramel malt, toffee, light sugar cookie notes and some mild hops. Overall a pretty good beer for the style.

Draft. Rich amber beer witha cream colored head. Toasty aroma with malt. Toasted malt flavor with backing citrus hops. Medium bodied. Toasty malts and citrus hops linger. Well balanced.

On tap at Pinnacle Peak Patio, it pours a nice deep amber color but with little to no head. Good flavor of mild hops, malts and even caramel but far from original. Thatís not to say it was bad, far from it, it just didnít blow my mind. Nice, somewhat bitter finish.

On cask at brewery: Though Iím not a huge fan of the style, this is one of the best ambers Iíve ever had: nice caramel character without being too sweet; earthy malt notes, balanced hop profile, and smooth palate made this a pleasant surprise.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 Light amber color with an okay head... the hopping makes this drink. Itís present, but not overbearing. "Clean." The aroma promised a better bitter hop taste than the flavor delivered, but it remains a pleasurable brew that one can enjoy all night long.

This beer falls under the "Amber Ale" category...nothing challenging or offensive, yet nothing interesting either. Pours a lighter amber color with a caramel aroma. Flavor is caramel malt and some light hop bitterness. Why do all amber ale's taste the same?

Nice amber color with a tan head, sweet malty aroma. Taste was a mix of hops and caramel notes. Light on the palate.

Perhaps I got a bad bottle, but this was the worst mess I have ever attempted to drink. It was funky and sour. tasted like it was left along the highway in Arizona. REALLY BAD. But I'll give it another shot.
