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.

bhensonb (10359) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 8, 2013
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 doesnít appeal. Thatís two beers tonight Iíve 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.

BMan1113VR (7788) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 8, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Pours with a clear amber hued body with a white head that lasts. Aromas are lightly orangy, citrusy, hoppy, maybe some tangerine. Malty, and quite a bit of caramel. Clean yeast wise. Flavors are malty, grassy, medium bitter. Caramel, lightly nutty, floral. Pretty clean. Straight forward, clean and good. A pretty decent amber ale (as far as those go).

On cask w/ ginger root at brewery tap room. Nice aroma of caramel hops and floral hops. I canít really sniff the ginger. The mouthfeel is creamy and light as you would expect from a cask. Flavor is a nice rounded blend of malts and hops with out being too bitter. The ginger gives it a little bite in the finish that is very welcome.
