An American amber ale crafted by using the finest American pale 2 row malt available, combined with Munich malt, Crystal malt and a small amount of roasted barley for its trademark redish hue. The ale is then seasoned with Columbus boiling hops, plus Cascade and Tettnang for flavor and aroma.

On tap @ Tampa Bay Brewing. Dark amber colored beer with white foam. Pretty typical amber ale...not sure what I expected. Sweet caramel, toast, toffee, and fruity esters. A light citrus and floral hop character, at least...but perhaps a little bit too much in the dried out flowers/perfume department. Maybe a touch herbal, too. Light bitterness and a whole lot of malty, sugary sweetness.

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2015 Flight at the brewery. Clear Amber. Caramel malt aroma. The taste adds earthy hops. Slight dark character, toast, bread crust. Perfectly paired with a Cuban sandwich. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at the original Tampa location. Yes, the color is Amber with a light lasting head. Aroma is toasted malt, light toffee and a weak fruit hop. The flavor is exactly as you would expect it to be. ( just like the aroma, no deviation) body is light and dare I say watery. Well I will say it because it is watery. Very light hop or malt profile, meh

Okay, so it smells like cheese, Parmesan cheese... Its weird but I dig it. Like a hearty beer. Oddly good. Flavor is rich and fairly dark, pretty roasted but with a biscuity finish. I thought it was gonna be dry but its not at all. Its really decent and full body for an amber. I dig it.

Sample at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange-amber color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Spotty lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel and slight hops. Light-bodied with flavors of pale malt, caramel and grassy hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Aroma of malt and grain, great looking reddish brown colour with a creamy off white head. Sweet malt taste with a creamy feel and a hint of malt in the finish.

Nice clear amber pour with minimal hed. Aroma is non existent. Taste is a surprise after the aroma. Nice malt and hop balance. Roasted, sweet and bitter

Boring pour, faint aroma, & not much flavor going on. Not really a fan!

Clear copper with a thin white cap. The aroma is a bit creamy caramelly but mostly biscuity. Flavor is clean and amberish, with earthy crackery caramalt, low but balancing leafy bitterness, with a slightly bitter finish. Meh.
