COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep amber ale has rich & roasty malt flavors, a big hoppy character, citrus overtones (courtesy of the hops and our special brewers yeast) and modest alcohol.

got this from trader Joe’s. Kind of tart tasting like a rotten lemon had been added but it was not horrible. Drinkable but not stones best.

brown amber color with small off white head. beautiful hoppy aroma that can only be described as amarillo. medium body and carbonation. bitter grapefruit citrus and floral taste with caramel too. this beer is strong, but as the name suggests, it is very light and easy drinking. basically, it’s a stone, what do you expect

Pours a deep transluscent maroon with a light beige head. Smell is big sweet maltiness equally matched however by a nice blast of fresh fruity hoppiness. Similar smell to a nice IPA. Very nicely balanced sweet caramel and hop flavor for an amber. Nice rich body, great flavor, and well hopped for an amber. Very good, very drinkable, and recommended for sure, even for non amber fans.

Thanks to footbalm for the bottle. Cloudy dark orange color with a small to medium head. Aroma is caramel malts and a healthy dose of floral hops. No surprise in the taste. Nicely bitter finish. A well done amber.

Amber brown color, with a creamy, beige head, some lace. Aroma is mildly citrusy with some malt and bitterness. Hops come through a bit more in the taste than in the nose. Overall, a nicely balanced beer with a good flavor.

This is my favorite lighter beer. While definitely not as tasty and refined as other beers of a darker variety, it does its job well. Great when paired with a good pepperonni pizza or some irish nachos. Yum!

Aroma: to the point. HOPS! I likened it to a Ruination without the alcohol content, basically a pared-down version of the aforementioned. A great beer for washing down particularly salty, accessible foods, say, gourmet onion rings or nachos.

Good, normal ale, good smell and taste of citrus hops, lots of malt, overly sharp though. I wouldn’t want more than one or two due to the sharp, bitter aftertaste.

Bottle form Secret Santa. Clear amber body with a creamy, beige head, lasting, some lace. The aroma is caramel, tea and lots of citrus hops. The flavor is grapefruit, tea, toffee and fairly dry. Medium/light body is a bit thin with moderate carbonation. Decent session ale, could do without all that crystal malt though.
