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.

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear, dark copper with khaki head. Good retention and abundant lacing. Aroma is mildly hoppy, citrus, not getting much malt for an amber ale. Flavor seems more balanced, mildly bitter, hoppy, citrus/juicy up front, fading into mild malt, nutty, and a bitter finish and aftertaste. Malts did seem to come out a little more as it warmed, but still underwhelming. Moderate carbonation, light body, and crisp texturing, fairly refreshing especially with the low ABV. A good brew, but significantly hop forward to the point where most of the malt is washed out.

Appearance is clear deep amber with creamy off white foam cap. Aroma is hop forward, more pine and herbal. Taste is roasted, toasty malt and gives way to a clean hop bite. The malt character is especially light, lacking the deeper body and viscosity more common with the style. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is a well balance bitterness that leaves a dry feeling on the tongue. An easy drinking, sessionable amber with great aroma, but seems to be lacking richness in malt character

12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Pours dark amber, clear, medium size off white head leaves nice lacing on glass. Aroma is mostly hops with some malts and some fruity notes. Taste is also hoppy but balanced with some caramel sweetness from malts, citrus notes. Dry and sticky finish. Nice.

35 cl bottle @ home. Pours clear reddish amber with a white head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is caramel, toffee, and grapefruit. Flavour is much like the aroma – with a bitter finish.

Draught @ BBF13. Pours clear darkish amber with airy light tan head. Clear aroma of malt and fruit with notes of caramel. Intense, hoppy flavour with sparse fruity notes. Bitter aftertaste. Decent.

Tydligen redan druckit...men när då? Aja. Klämmer en flarra på GH i väntan på tyngre rariteter. riktigt bra ale i lite engelsk stil. För 50kr är det ett fynd. När jag minst anar det smyger Hoffback fram och drar ner byxorna på mig. Spexigt, helt klart.

Dark, malty flavor. Will tingle your tongue with spices and roasted hops. Pair it with spicy chicken wings. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A straightforward, if a bit underwhelming, craft amber ale. Aroma and taste uniform throughout: light roasty and caramel sweet malt mixed with fairly bitter hops. I don’t recall catching the citrus flavor advertised on the label. Medium-bodied. Finish sticks around a little too long. Not awe-inspiring, but I would take this over other most other amber ales. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

No lacing and light retention. Smells of citrus, hops and pine. Tastes of sweet/bitter malt and citrus hops. Medium bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at the Stone Kickoff at the Blind Tiger Ale House in NYC. Not a bad beer. Just a litt tame from a brewery that makes great big beers. Nice amber with a hint of hops.
