The fossil record proves one thing: that beer alone is responsible for the evolutionary leap from ape to man. This malty Amber is our tribute to Charles Darwin, evolution and perfection. Enjoy!

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - NOV 26, 2009
bottle consumed 9/13/09. hazy amber pour topped by a small tannish/off white head. smells mostly of sweet grain with notes of cinnamon-y spice, faint orange/citrus, some florals and a touch of chocolate. the flavor is... not especially good.... it’s grainy and sweet with lots of leftover sugar. orange, citrus tartness, florals, some buttery caramel (not diacetyl but not pleasant) and a slightly herbal finish make up the flavors. the body is medium and has a certain ’swampy’ feeling to the texture... it’s kinda hard to describe but swampy really comes to mind. meh. 5.5/3/4.5/2/10/2.5

Pours clear bright copper with and off-white head. Medium body, nearly still. Almost no aroma. Caramel and butter taste fades into nothing.

BOLTZ7555 (3014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Deep burnt orange pour with a 1 finger head that diminishes to a ring. Something is just off in this. Almost has a malty cherry quality...not like any amber I’ve ever tasted. Just couldn’t get past it.

daknole (10801) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - SEP 23, 2009
clear amber pour with a mostly white head. aroma is full of caramel malt, light toast, and maybe a tiny hint of fruitiness. Flavor is malty and a bit nutty. Ok.

JasonG (776) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - AUG 24, 2009
12 oz bottle - Pours a crystal clear medium amber color with small light tan head. Aroma has faint biscuity notes, light caramel, faint roasty notes. Flavor is faintly nutty, notes of toasted malts and light caramel. Finish is fairly balanced. Overall this is alright - certaintly nothing to seek out, but not a bad session ale if you don’t have a lot of options.

bbrock81 (317) - Le Mars, Iowa, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Bottle purchased in Hill City, SD, of all places. Pours a dark amber-brown with not much head. Aroma started out slightly lightstruck, but as that faded a very nice toastiness came through, with not much else going on. The flavor was pretty bland, not as malty as the aroma and again, not much else going on. Palate was average, maybe a bit fizzy. Not a terribly good beer.
