BlackHaddock (3917) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2014
Decent sized sample on 14th July 2014 at a Beer and Indian Food evening: The Clay Oven, Irvine, Orange County. Tasted between two strong Stouts and basically used to cleanse my mouth: which it did nicely. Amber and clear body, off-white crown. The nose was hoppy with floral notes. The taste similar but seemed a little bland and thin with subtle/weak flavouring. A refreshing enough beer but lacked depth compared to some of the heavy hitters it was up against at the 5 brewery tasting evening.

Almost clear amber beer, decent pale cream colour head. Palate is light and minerally crisp. Light thin malts and light dry cream. Touches of orange and orange peel. Light bitterness before the semi dry finish. It’s fine if a bit on the timid side.

Theydon_Bois (9280) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2014
Keg at Rock’n’Fish, Laguna Beach, 17/04/14. Clear amber with light reddish tones when held to the light topped with a moderate light beige swirl. Nose is toasty maltings, orange, pinch of spice, light caramel, faint hops. Taste comprises caramel, toasty notes, hint of vanilla, biscuit, light spice. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. A thoroughly whelming inoffensive amber shmamber, may as well be 6,000 miles away back home ticking at a Spoons fest!

Barreras (1003) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - DEC 16, 2013
Pours a copper color with a nut walt aroma. Taste is clean with a slight hop flavor. Aftertaste quickly disappears, with a floral earthy flavor. A mild amber ale without much complexity.

RedSox2004 (1295) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - OCT 11, 2013
lear gold with a bright white head and moderate lace. Aromas of caramel and pale malt with leafy hops and hints of toast and bubblegum. Caramel malt sweetness is offset by the leafy grassy hops, finishing with toast and a return of the caramel. Medium body and carbonation, sticky mouthfeel and a lingering sweetness in the finish.

16 oz bottle courtesy of BMan1113VR (thanks Andrew) poured a clear golden amber with a lingering ring of ivory foam. Aromas of carmel and earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel and earthiness with a crisp dry lingering earthy finish.

15 July 2013, bottle. Orange, clear, steady bubbles. Nose is golden syrup malt. Thin body and moderately fizzy. golden syrup malt, slightly sweet. Balanced well by lemon citrus. Pretty good for an amber ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. Pours copper/amber with a slight off-white head. Aroma is mild citrus/floral. Med body. Flavor is cooked caramel, spicy hop, citrus and floral hop. The cooked aspect doesn’t appeal. That’s two beers tonight I’ve had that as an issue with. Maybe I am just needing more hops than some brewers choose to use. I agree this is hoppy for an amber, and as a very little bitter builds the ale becomes more agreeable.
