imdownthepub (9954) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 15, 2009
Keg at Pivo Bar, York. Clouded amber with slight head. Just had to go for it, but it turned out to be quite tart and acidic over a fruity, caramel body, not what I really expected. Smooth and a little thick on the palate, a bit of a struggle.

355ml bottle (Bacchanalia, Cambridge)
Drunk at 6am just outside the security checkpoint at Stansted Airport, as we couldn’t take it with us thanks to the fucking TSA and European spinelessness. Dark, clear woody brown like a dunkel. Good beige head, with great retention. Simple dry woody and nutty. Very English in style, a million miles removed from what I consider an "Amber Ale" (namely something sweet, sticky, and incipid). Taste follows the aroma. This is more like a northern brown bitter or even an old ale, but without any of the sourness that sometimes tags along with those monikers. This may be a very simple beer, but it is very tasty and very drinkable.

TwoSipDip (8894) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Bottle @ home. Dark red orange appearance with a small off white head. Piney hoppy, amber malty nose. Piney, bitter hoppy flavor on top of a light amber malty body. Lingering earthy, piney bitterness. I would clasify this as an ESB not an amber due to the strong hoppy bitterness and the lighter amber maltiness. Tastes stronger in alcohol than is present. Way over hopped and probably the reason the hopheads overrate this beer. Pretty good but way more hoppy than the typical amber ale.

daknole (8863) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 8, 2009
Bottle. Amber pour. Tan head. Lots of hops and malt on the nose. Citrus hops stick out with a sticky amount of malt. Good caramel notes. Another quality stone brew.
