Not bad... A little hoppy with some citrus but not overpowering. I could drink this on occasion but it’s kinda the middle of the road beer for me. Nice copper pour to it.

Serving: from bottle at Centro Woodfired Pizzeria. Aroma: light pine hop aroma. Appearance: small, off-white, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Hazy, medium-amber body. Taste: lightly sweet caramel initial flavor and lightly bitter finish with long duration. Palate: medium body with oily texture and lively carbonation. Overall: very good. Unique flavor.

Wow, this was rather a surprise! A friend brought this back from a SLC trip, and whenever I see ’Amber’ on a bottle, I usually shy away. Nose is almost of a single IPA...nice and malted and piney. Flavors are dark plum malts, burnt caramel, and a great hopped backing to finish it all out. If all Ambers tasted like this, I probably wouldn’t despise the style so much!

COMRADEJOSH (259) - Ft Hood, Texas, USA - AUG 14, 2013
Pours dark amber with a thin white head. Sweets very sweet and carmely. Taste cloyingly sweet and raisin aftertaste. Kind of like a belgian but without the heavy alcohol. Not very good I expected more from this too bad.

Squatters Big Cottonwood has a medium, soapy, cream-colored head, a mostly clear, deep amber appearance, lots of streaming bubbles, and a little bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of piney hops, bread crust, and sweetness, and the flavor is strongly of hop oil, with sweet bread crust, some toffee, and a bit of pecan shell. Mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Squatters Big Cottonwood finishes semi-dry, easy drinking, and sweet. It is a delicious beer. RJT

DrSilverworm (5016) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2013
12oz bottle, thanks to my parents for bringing this back from a road trip. Shared 4 ways with the family. Bottled 4/24/13. Mostly clear amber-red color. Thin khaki head. Loose dots of lace. Medium body, smooth, lighter carbonation. Lightly crisp. Lightly dry finish. Caramel malts, lightly toasty. Some decent light earthy, light spicy hops. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Pretty good amber ale, definitely above average. Better than expected.
