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.

bhensonb (14177) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 26, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2007 Aroma of malt with citrus hint. Coppery amber color with frothy tan head. Some lacing. Starts with caramel malt flavor, grapefruit aromas in the middle, and a nice lasting, but mild, bitter hoppy finish. Not your typical relatively tasteless amber. Sort of like a good pale ale with some extra malt.

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.

Tmoney99 (13618) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 23, 2009
Draft at Dilly Deli. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasted and had good lacing. Good malty and citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body with slick dry texture and flat carbonation. Moderate well balanced smooth flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good session brew.

imdownthepub (13397) - 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.

argo0 (13318) - Washington DC, USA - APR 6, 2009
(12oz bottle) Medium off-white head atop clear copper body. Aroma is moderately sweet, grapefruit, some pineapple, caramel. Taste is moderately sweet, grapefruit, caramel, resin, light berry. Light-medium body, light effervescence, wateriness, acidity. I guess it’s a West Coast amber.

Scopey (12712) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2011
Keg at Dean Swift. It pours deep amber, with a thin, foamy white head. The nose is pine, caramel, dust, tangy citrus and a bit of cheese. The taste is caramel, dust, pine, hop bite, orange, grapefruit and tangy marmalade, with a dry-citrus finish. Medium body, average carbonation and slightly sticky mouth-feel. Maybe not quite the freshest, but it still tastes good.
