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.

Hoppy aromas, citrusy, caramel and malts there too. Medium head, leaves a nice lacing. Taste of hops and malt, palate is fullish. Overall pretty nice, Iíd have another :) Prefer this to the stone pale ale.

Good beer. It didnít really strike me as a red ale. Flavorful, good hops, refreshing.

Pours a bronze color. Smell is of hops and citrus. Taste is more malty than the smell, some hops, well balanced. Overall a good quality beer.

Starts with a nice creme colored head atop a deep golden-amber beer. Slightly yeasty aroma that could have been stronger. Tasted flat with some hops, had a watery feel to it and a bitter finish.

it pours a rich amber color. The hops are evident the second itís poured. At first, there is a high citrus note but that goes away as the hops kick in. It doesnít have the most bite of any beer Iíve had, but the bite is there for sure! Surprisingly low ABV at 4.4. Great color, great flavor, aggressive but not overwhelming bite, very good lacing.

This beer pours a clear amber with a large, frothy head. It has a rich hops aroma and the it has a heavy alcohol aroma as well. Itís a bit more bitter than I was hoping and is very reminiscent of an IPA. It has a pretty light body. Itís not bad but I wish I didnít have to buy a six-pack to try it.

Wonderful aroma and solid flavor that isnít too heavy-handed. Good session beer. Also, one of the best-looking bottles, in my opinion.

Great session beer, but more like an English best bitter, but with US hop character than an American Amber ale. Meh, definitions, itís still a tasty beer and great for a session.

Poured an amber color with a medium head. mild citrus hop aroma with heavy malt presence. When I first tasted this I couldnít believe it only had 4.4% alcohol. This is very well balanced and very flavorfull for that type of alcohol content. a mild hoppy flavor with a big rich malt flavor and some caramel notes. Thanks DarkElf!
