Sample at the brewery. Aroma has caramel notes. Some hop. Flavor is good, and I usually donít care for ambers. Palate is thick and finishes mildly dry. Flavor has a sweet maltInnes to it. Overall its a great beer.

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.

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.

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).

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.

boomerbrew (143) - Texas, USA - APR 21, 2008
Draft at brewpub. Low aroma (kind of like a Vienna lager), appearance good. Good head retention. Most important the flavor was good. The favor wasnít hot w/alcohol but I caught a buzz.

Very good amber. The description said it had good caramel flavor. I didnít 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.

nearbeer (4919) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 17, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2015 Pint on tap at the Peppermillís Bimini Restaurant. Clear copper with a lasting disc of foam. Aroma is toast, toffee and a bit of toasted nut. Tastes of caramel, toasted pecan, spicy citrus and hint of dry cocoa. Light-medium body has a pleasant medium carbonation and a nice balance.

Tap at the brewpub. The body was dark copper with a thick khaki colored head. The aroma was almonds and toast along with some oranges. The taste was walnus with some toast and citrus. A decent brew, but a little boring.
