TheCrowsNest (90) - Redondo Beach, California, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Crystal clear and dark copper with a rapidly receding white head. Light toasty aromas are complimented by caramel notes, no hop aroma. The light flavors of this amber make it very approachable and drinkable but there is a slight metallic note, finishes with a delicate bitterness. Mouthfeel is very light and despite the lack of head there’s good carbonation. It could benefit from a more malt-forward profile, but this beer finishes clean and is extremely easy drinking.

Sampled from a 12 oz can this beer poured a honey amber color with a large foamy orange tan head that lingered and left minimal lacing. The aroma was yeasty, tangy and a bit off. The flavor was tangy and sweet with caramel and bread. Long finish. Medium body. Meh.

Decent beer taste with a good flavor. Not bad for a USA beer. Not too much in hops, which is a good start for a USA beer.

Bottle. It poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was of caramel, bread and malts. The taste was similar to the aroma with more caramel, bread, malts and a touch of hops. It had a medium body with mild carbonation and a sweet aftertaste. Not bad.

Hazy, light amber color with a thin head of semi-creamy offwhite colored foam. Caramel and raisin notes on the aroma. More caramel and some toffee on the taste with a subtle floral hop character going on.

draft. Pours a medium, poorly retained off white head, over a clear dark amber (SRM 11) body.....nose is toasted malts with melanoidin, no cocoa, minimal hops, no eaters......taste is toasted malts with cracker and toasted bread tones, no caramel, no eaters, dry throughout, slight hop spice, finishing with moderate bitterness........mouth feel, medium light body, no alcohol high carbonation. This is a very clean, lightly toasted beer, nicely balanced between malts and hops, but overall simple in aroma and taste. It is an easy drinking summer beer. BJCP 9/3/16/4/7

Slightly bready malts with a watery aftertaste. Nothing impressive on the flavor front but nothing really offensive.

It might not be the hottest beer style, but, this is one of the best Ambers out there

tomer (3736) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - JUL 17, 2017
Shared at a tasting, small bubbly creamy head, clear dark orange color, aroma of candy, stewed fruit, caramel and cakey maltiness, light caramel flavor with some stewed fruits, dry and a bit sour. Drinkable but a bit bland.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Tom L’s place. Thanks tomer. Deep golden. Honey, oxidation, cardboard, fruitiness, sweet, medium-bodied. Old.
