FlyingSwine (174) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - FEB 16, 2008
Hard pour results in a cloudy brown color, with a respectable white head. Aroma is light but pleasant. Flavor is well balanced, with caramel on the front, and floral/citrus on the end. Palate is thin but present. Dry finish. Overall a VERY good sesson beer, that improves with a bit of temperature (45 or higher).

DuffMan (6531) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 15, 2008
Dark copper amber, clear, with a thick almond coloured, long-lived head. Moderately malty, huge passionfruit and resinous hop character, big bitter finish. This sets a new standard for regular (low) ABV, easy drinking beers. Outstanding.

Sparky (2133) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - FEB 11, 2008
Bottle. Poured a clear deep amber color with a small off white head. Malts and caramel on the nose. Taste is malty with some caramel and a bitter hoppy finish. Light mouth feel - decent lacing. A lot more flavor than I expected. Not a bad beer, but not great.

StefanSD (2085) - Lakeside, California, USA - FEB 2, 2008
12 oz bottle from Henry’s. Pours an amber-brown color with a one finger beige head that dissipates to 1/4 inch. The aroma is strong with citrus, caramel and a bit of fresh cut grass. The flavor is big for a low abv amber ale, there are roasted grains, biter hops, spices and rye bread. The mouthfeel starts a bit thin but builds to a nice full pasty conclusion. The finish is very long and sticky with walnuts, caramel and biter hops hanging on forever. Overall: This beer redefines the standard for an amber ale, very nice. Recommended.

biggmike (480) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - JAN 29, 2008
Poured a nice dark amber/copper color with nice white head that lasted quite a while. Aroma is of citrus hops. Flavor is also of citrus hops with a bit of maltiness coming through. This is a nice sessionable amber ale with a high degree of drinkability. Mouth feel was good and lacing on glass was light.

RSRIZZO (1850) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2008
Aroma of fresh hops. Color is a bright clear amber with low carbonation and a nice tan head. Taste is super hoppy. Starting with a medium body it goes down crisp. Finish comes in with a bright hoppiness that is a little spicy then a mellow malt flavor that has a bit of caramel to it, this is followed by an easy bitterness and what I can only call a creamy feel. After taste is dry as the bitterness builds a touch. This is a wonderful well balanced brew, a bit hoppier then you would expect an Amber to be but still wonderful.

highibus (707) - Vail, Arizona, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Darker reddish amber color. Decent creamy white head deminishes quickly. Aroma was much more hops apparent than I ever remember. Nice fresh herbal hops too. Palate was dissapointing as it was way to nociticably thin. Nice malty flavor of dark bread but quickly cut by the how thin it was. Decent finish as the hops still linger. I have always liked this beer, just haven’t had it in a long time. Thought I needed to rate it.

This was ok. The bitterness was late in arriving and sharp. It was overbalanced in the bitter direction. Color was good with a small white head.
