Sample at the brewpub. Slightly cloudy copper color with a thin off-white head that recedes quickly to a film. Spotty lacing. Aroma of roast malt, fruit and subtle hops. Light body with flavors of caramel malt, earthy hops and fruit. The finish is sweet with a grainy malt aftertaste. Average overall.

Bottle from Bevmo: Created a soft and thin layer of foamed head while the liquid was a tea brown meets golden honey color. The aroma was rather fruity with scents of dried fruit such as apricot and plums. Flavors are tangy with a fruity yet soapy taste. There is a sweet finish and also allows for some notice of caramel malts, but I wouldn’t buy this again and only think of this amber as below par.

On tap, sampler. Pours a very light amber, almost yellow. No real nose to speak of. Crisp attack, malty but very light. Finishes clean. Can drink a lot of them I guess, but nothing amazing.

An ok amber. Pours a really nice brown-orange. Smells slightly roasted. Tastes a little refreshing, with some cream. A little bit of a weird vinegar aftertaste.

Backlog purge. On tap at the inaugural Hop N Barley festival in Scotts Valley. Awful crystal malt bomb, iced tea with generic C hops.

Bomber from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. The beer poured tea colored with a lot of sediment that added plenty of haze. An off white head was not big. This reminded me of an English Bitter in many ways. It had some soft fruit from Euro hops. Malt was not as big as in some Ambers. The fruit was pleasant. It had a different fell and was a bit like fruit juice. This was a nice sessionable beer and was quite refreshing. Thanks Ron.
