chinchill (1959) - South Carolina, USA - OCT 15, 2014
{from notes} undated 12 oz bottle served in a pint glass. A: reddish-amber color; clear with a moderate, creamy head of limited duration. Little lacing. S: nice malty aroma with hints of bread and toffee. T: light, grassy hops, a trace of citrus, and a light malt backbone. Hoppy for style, as is most obvious in the lingering, moderately bitter aftertaste.

BrewBoxer (2059) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Bottle. Amber color. Smells of amber carmel. Color is brown amber, Tatse is hoppy and balanced. Not as hoppy as the bottle states, but a good decent APA.

DocLock (7915) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Bottle. Pours deep copper with ruby hints and a 3-finger off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, citric hops, slight rock sugary and funk notes. Tastes caramel malty, somewhat tart, very resiny and bitter hoppy. Palate is medium in heft and complexity. Good, but not as good as the pils, APA, IPA, and IIPA.

oobawa (626) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 5, 2012
Pretty, but the nose is all dark malt and grain, nary a hop to be found. Tastes semidry, with a dark, caramel middle surrounded by a immediate and lingering swipe of hops. But the hops don’t have the wanted depth; the beer is bitter, but doesn’t deliver on any solid pine, herbal, or citric flavors that are usually prevalent in a "hoppy red." But I’m being too negative; this bottle isn’t bad beer. In fact, there’s a grainy, earthy charm to the malts, and the hops never grow annoying, even if the bitterness is without any accompanying charm.

BelgianBeerGal (3201) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Local Belmont bottle. Clear amber pour with a medium, foamy head and decent lacing, Bigger aroma that starts with sweeter hops and finishes with sweet malt. Huh? Everything kinda disappears in the flavor. Just some lingering, flat bitterness. High hopes faded quickly.

IndyBeerSnob (132) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 30, 2012
Bottle poured pint glass. Pours a beautiful amber color with a frothy head. Beer unfortunately looks better than it tastes but the hoppy red taste is still there. I found my taste wanting more hoppiness but that due to my love for ipas! This beer does the trick for your hopped amber beer needs. Its solid taste, beautiful color, and consistant head make this beer a great decision for a Monday night.
