Draft at brewpub. Low aroma (kind of like a Vienna lager), appearance good. Good head retention. Most important the flavor was good. The favor wasn’t hot w/alcohol but I caught a buzz.

Not much aroma, looks nice. Flavor is oky, a little frothy. More malty than what I like, but good for my wife.

GG (2039) - NorCal, California, USA - APR 27, 2007
Meh. Nothing I haven’t had a bazillion times. Nothing to distinguish it from the other Amber ales that’s out there. Aroma is iced tea, lightly sweet caramel and clean hop. Appearance is maple syrup brown, little head. Flavor is more iced tea, caramel with a light piney hop. Very drinkable, but boring as hell.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 27, 2007
Draft at the brewpub. Poured a clear dark orange color. head was thin and off white without much lacing. Aroma and flavor was dominated by vegetables. Celery and grass were the dominant elements. There was also a bit of toasted bread. Dry and modestly bitter on the tongue. Wasn’t wild about this one.

rmussman (1702) - California, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Sampled in Truckee. A nice brew. Aroma was fair but the key was the appearance. Was very dark red with a thick head. One of the best amber ales i have had. Mouthfeel is smooth and the flavor is nice and hoppy.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JAN 12, 2006
Very good amber. The description said it had good caramel flavor. I didn’t detect any caramel at all whatsoever, but there was plenty of roasted malt present. A nice surprise. This was more of a light porter than it was an amber ale. Still very good though.

I.C.suds (189) - Da U.P. eh?, Michigan, USA - MAY 7, 2004
Toasted biscut with honey sweet and malty followed by a crispy floral hop. Balance is the key. A frothy head that stuck to the plastic cup that this beer was served in.(a sin).

Tap. A mahogany brown reddish color. Lots of caramel and burnt malts. The first sip was rewarded with a cherry fruit flavor. Not being an amber fan, I was very impressed with this beer.

hopscotch (9158) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 23, 2002
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2003 This beer really rocks. The color is a beautiful Mohogany/Amber. The aroma is very malty and very fruity. Both really come through in the flavor as well. Very malty with a big fruity flavor (plums), but not sweet. The finish is crisp and clean. Just a terrific amber ale.
