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.

Via trade with stefanje. I owe you a few! Aroma was so so. Light caramel malt with some stale hops in and out. Pour was nice enough. A deep amber with a one finger off white head. Taste was average. Earthy and grassy hops throughout with just a hint of old musty malt in the background. Medium carbonation and thin mouthfeel. This isn’t that bad, but not as good as some other ambers out there.

BelgianBeerGal (3386) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 4, 2008
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2012 Bottle in Breckenridge. Rather dark amber color with a tan head and moderate lacing. Big hops in the aroma. Flavor was citrus hops with hints of pink grapefruit. A little malt in the background. Just a little thin, flatness in the finish. Good amber.

This was a great ale, with nice malt tones and big hops in the aroma and flavor. It wasn’t too bitter, but pretty well balanced. A decent brew.

uhclem (394) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - FEB 28, 2008
Beautiful amber pour with a mocha head and respectable lacing. Citrus hop aroma with a faint undertone of vanilla. Taste was nice but a little too understated for me. Substantial mouthfeel. Aftertaste was a fairly good balance of malt and hops, but a little on the brassy side.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2008
Pours copper-red with a two-finger white head. Spicy, resinous hop aroma. The flavor tends towards balance: all the maltiness of an amber coupled with the lovely citric hop of Stone. Reminds me of North Coast’s Red Seal. Awesome beer, aggressively American, yet refined.

nolankowal (937) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2008
Draft. Amber pour with an off white yellowed head. Aroma of citrus, toasted malt, light caramel and pine. Flavors of toasted malt, citrus, caramel, pine, and light floral notes. Medium/light body, bitter/malty with a lingering bitter finish. Nice brew!

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 (8000) - 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 (2244) - 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.
