kramer (6477) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice deep copper body with a one finger fizzy beige head that retained as a thin covering. The nose is surprisingly hoppy for an Amber, but the hops have a distinct metallic quality to them. A fair amount of toasted malt shows through as well. Balanced flavor between the hops and malt, with neither really impressing me. The hops are fairly muted with a moderate level of bitterness and some citrus rind on the finish. The malts are toasty and a little husky with a sweetness that emerges on the back end. Pretty full bodied and hearty for the style, with a nice soft fizzy carbonation level. Overall, a good bit more flavor and character than the average Amber Ale, but in a greater context not especially impressive.

Ive had 3 beers from Ale Ayslum and all 3 are very drinkable. This beer pours a amber color with nice head and quite a bit of lacing. Hoppy aroma and also hoppy flavor with malts. Good beer.

drowland (7917) - Georgia, USA - JAN 15, 2010
On tap (2009) in a pint glass at the brewpub. Pours opaque brown/black with a small khaki head. The aroma is chocolate and a bit of roast. The flavor is good and smooth, though somewhat light, with chocolates, cream, and some coffee. Some decent stuff!

CanIHave4Beers (4159) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Pours an orange-ish amber color with floaties galore and a good head. The aroma has some floral hops and caramel but is overall kind of faint. The Flavor has lots of good grassy hops and some caramel with some fruity apple character. This is a pretty good example of an amber ale.

pkbites (889) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2009
Pours a gorgeous reddish hued amber with a beige creamy head that floats on top like a scoop of french vanilla ice cream. A bit of lacing completes the work of art. Caramel and fruit lightly entice the nose. The body is not as heavy as expected, and the massive supply of hops dont show until the swallow. The aftertaste of hops is strong, wonderful, and possibly eternal. Im still tasting them an hour after I drank the bottle. Very nice!!!

Pours deep amber with haze. Nice, strong hop and caramel malt aroma. Malt taste comes through first with moderate hop finish. A tiny bit sweet.

TheAlum (7106) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2009
12 oz bottle from my GTMW trip to Wisconsin. Pours a hazy dark amber, bits of brown and ruby, fairly dark for the style, well hazed, small beige head that stays at its level, laces better than expected. Aromas are a good malty caramel base, but citrusy grapefruit and floral hops take on a bit stronger, bitter with toasty toffee, grainy, biscuits. Well hopped sweet Amber type. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied, a good bitterness, citrusy lemon and grapefruit, florals, a touch of gumball, toffee and caramel underneath, a bit toasty, grainy, biscuity. Better hopped than most Amber Ales, with a touch of pine in there. This is enjoyable, crisp grainy and caramel sweetness linger on the backend with some decent bitterness sticking to the palate. Id drink this more often if it were my local option. Pretty good.

krysztofar (344) - belleville, Illinois, USA - SEP 16, 2009
12oz bottle. nice light brown amber shade with an off-white quickly disappearing foam top. big citrus hop nose shows off a little biscuit malt in the back. crisp bright hop balanced by sweet malts. finish is clean, and the body is medium. im not a big fan of ambers but this one is better than average. not the typical banal crossover beer.

Dark amber pour with a light tan head. Caramel malt aroma and hops. Sweet, malty, caramel, and a nice hoppy finish. Lacing on the glass. Nice amber ale.
