portableparty (1909) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - NOV 6, 2012
12 oz. bottle. Pours red brown with a khaki tight foamy head that leaves a wispy film and lacing. Aroma has really nice caramel malt and sugar with a little spice. Taste has nice spice caramel malt and a bitter dry earthy hop presence. Palate is medium and a little sticky with a chalky dry finish. Solid!

EdInSaltLake (624) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - NOV 6, 2012
Nice toasted flavor and aroma, well-balanced with some caramel malt. Toastier than your standard Amber; maybe bordering on American Brown? Moderate hop character; secondary to the malt, but it’s there.

Tmoney99 (10554) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 14, 2012
Bottle. Poured clear dark amber color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate complex hop and caramel malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations were met.

alexanderj (3311) - Branson, Missouri, USA - SEP 23, 2012
Bottle; poured clear, dark auburn type color with a smallish tan head. Aroma of caramel, toast, floral and earthy dry hopping. Flavor had some nice hops up front, fading to a slightly sweet caramel middle, with the return of the hops in the finish. Pretty well balanced, with some nice complexity. For the style, very nice.

rougeau13 (1987) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Deep orange-amber with a resilient, frothy, khaki colored head and decent lacing. Aroma of caramel, grass, toast, and raisins. Tastes sweet and toasty with a mild bitterness. Nice and full flavored. Medium, actually relatively full, bodied and slightly dry. Excellent amber.

Bottle courtesy of Max shared with Andrew, Brendan and Max. Pours a deep amber brown body with light lacing. Aroma is sweet bready malts and some light earthiness. Mouthfeel is medium, nicely carbonated and balanced with notes of sweet, toasted malts, caramel, bread, grain and light earthy hop.

hivemind (708) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 22, 2012
Bottle split w Andy James Max. Sweet malty aroma, kind of barky notes. Similar palate, goes down really smooth with creamy caramel malt notes and a nice grittiness in the texture.

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Poured into a pint glass. 3.5 A: Clear orange amber color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is about average and a moderate amount of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Toasty with a strong caramel component. Sweet and grainy maltiness. Simple, but pleasant. 3.5 T: Like the nose, this is toasty with plenty of caramel, a moderate sweetness, and graininess. 3.5 M: Light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess. Good enough here. 3.5 D: Entirely drinkable, good enough amber ale. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 06-30-2012 22:30:14

kidmartinek (3630) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Translucent amber. Big head. Sticky and frothy good. Malty but balanced aroma. Strong malt and hop flavor. The malty sweetness is exceptionally well balanced by the hops. It has a bitter sweet finish. Very good for an amber. A style thats hard to like with the advent of all these APA and IPAs.
