BMan1113VR (7874) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JAN 29, 2010
Bottle thanks to travita. Pours with an orange body and a white head. Aroma of caramel, dryness and some alcohol. Taste is caramel, dryer sheets, and something that I cannot read from my notes. Creamy bubbles, dry mouthfeel.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Serving: 12 oz. bottle. This amber ale pours a deep amber color with a pillowy off-white head. The head seems to have good staying power. The nose seems to have a nice balance of hops and malt. Cracker, earthy malt, and bread notes from the malt side. Herbal and floral notes from the hop side. A little soapy on the palate. Some light brown sugar sweetness, floral hops, a pretty solid back bitterness, and some bread notes too. Medium bodied and relatively soft carbonation. The finish is very long and bitter. Overall itís not a bad brew. There isnít anything that really wows me or makes me think I should really keep this in the fridge though. Better than average but still sort of passable. A different take on a winter brew.

Leighton (11900) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 20, 2010
Tap at Pony Bar. Nice brew here. Would make an excellent sessioner. Pours a nifty amber-red with a crisp, white head. Nose is moderately hoppy. Flavor is a nice mix of rich malts and bitter hops. Lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Solid.

milewide (1580) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JAN 20, 2010
Medium amber color. Modest head, and medium body. Highlight of this beer was a lingering hop bitterness, more than most amber ales.

keepersj12 (2761) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2010
Nice. Pours a reddish amber with a small white head. Very nice caramel aroma with some citrus in there too. Flavor is malty sweetness balanced by a hop bitterness. Very dry finish. Nice on a cold night.

zach8270 (3585) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JAN 15, 2010
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear red pour with a thin white head and mild carbonation. Mild malty aroma with some very light hop notes and a nice caramel undertone. Dry and bitter hops begin the flavor with a biting pepper middle. Finish is crisp and cloyingly bitter with a sharp and peppery aftertaste.

blklab2007 (2015) - Connecticut, USA - JAN 14, 2010
bottle poured a dark ruby red in color with a frothy one finger white head. aroma has nice hops offering both bitterness and citrus. sweet malt and a bit of earth round things out. mouth feel is medium with nice carbonation and a watering of the side of the tongue. flavor is balanced nicely between malt and hops. resins pickup, medium firm bitterness, pokes of citrus, and sweet malt. comes off as a chewy red ale.

jrob21 (2677) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 9, 2010
Pours a clear amber with almost no head. A little bit of caramel and some pruneish sort of aromas. Flavor is slightly sweet with some nuttiness and purple fruit. Finish is a nice light citrus bitterness. Not a bad drink.
