DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - OCT 20, 2004
This beer poured an amber, copper color with a thin creamy white head which really didnt die, but just left a creamy island in the beer. Some slight lacing on the glass, but nothing to quantify as major. Aroma is of heavy malts, a hint of hop, a big ole’ malt bag, and perhaps a hint of fruits. Flavor is slightly fruity with mandarin in there, but is predominantly malty front...heavy malty front rather with a slight hopped finish. Pretty much one-sided in its sweetness, and I do like sweet. Tastes as a red should..dry finish, very mild, little carbonation. Medium bodied, long dry aftertaste!

omhper (19698) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 18, 2004
Bottled, thanks SpringsLicker! Hazy amber. Roasty and medium sweet. Firm and balanced. Aromatic hops dominate. Medium bitterness. A pleasant straigh forward beer.

hopscotch (9258) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Crystal clear, dictionary defintion amber ale. Small, off-white head with decent retention and some small, ink-blot lacing. Some chocolate notes within the aroma. Weak, watery flavor, but well-balanced and refreshing. Light-bodied with a smooth mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish. Thanks to springslicker for the bottle!

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - APR 25, 2004
Seems average amber in every way.... WRONG! This goes down sleazy easy and leaves a nice malty palate. Would be great in mass numbers on a hot summer night. Easy to find here.

SpringsLicker (3158) - Tennessee, USA - APR 20, 2004
This starts out with a nice, clean, bready aroma. The sweet malt taste is balanced with a touch of acidity. Good sweet finish.

3fourths (8110) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 8, 2004
Slightly murky deep copper with a foamy light tan head. Nice sweet malt aroma, some like and crisp hops showing up as well... really a wonderful aroma for an amber. Flavor is a bit lacking, some grains... maybe some corn flavors. Palate is soft and full. Decent enough. Thanks to Suttree for sending this one!

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - APR 8, 2004
For being a gold medal winner, I did not think this was a great as everyone said it would be. I found it to be slightly weaky and watery, with a slight underbalancing on the malt side. Some nice hoppy sweetness, but still lacking. Clean finish.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - MAR 6, 2004
Nice amber/brown color.Small off white head that had a decent hang time and managed to leave a small but decent lace.The aroma was sweet caramel and malt with a faint hint of hops,with a hint of coffee but kind of faint.The taste is malty and caramel with a light coffe tone to it and hops coming through with a nice flavor and light bitterness.Fairly decent brew,sort of balanced and fairly easy to drink,well worth having a few more around for later.Thanks go to Springslicker for sending me this nice brew.

haddon90 (1472) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 5, 2004
A decent Amber Ale. Somewhat foggy, slim white head. Some malt in the aroma. Pretty smooth taste. Ending is somewhat dry. Pretty decent, definitely worth trying. Had this on tap at Union Jack's in Knoxville, TN.
