Pours a dark clear copper colour with a full creamy head. A very nice, sweetly malted ale. Aromas of fresh hops and plums. Flavors of caramel, nuts and bread. Moderately hopped throughout each taste which is very pleasent.

Bottled. Sat in my fridge for ages, because I hate amber ale. Sorry for the bias. This isnt that bad. This isnt that good. Maybe thats what I hate about Amber so much. It is so boring. They are all the same. Some sweet, chocolately malts. Some bitter, resinous American hops. Never enough of either. Medium body, medium carbonation, medium drinkability. If you averaged out every beer recipe ever made, youd arrive at Amber. This beer fits that bill. Almost. It tastes a little bit like fish, though. Thats not so average.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2008 Big 20 beer tasting at Three Cellars Milwaukee. Big bang of hops !! And is very easy to drink. Smooth for the amount of hop you get hint of malts to balance.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - APR 25, 2008
Bottle thanks to CMUBEERMAN. Pours opaque cider caramel, off white head. Aroma is hops (tangerine, kiwi), malt, vanilla. Flavor is similar with some earthiness. This seems more like an IPA than an amber. Im not complaining though. ;)

NeonLX (261) - Wisconsin, USA - APR 17, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2008 Now this is more like it! From a 12-oz. bottle, the brew pours a medium orangey-amber with a decent white head. Nice lacing. Good hop presence in the nose, along with some breadiness & caramel corn. Taste exhibits an Initial hearty maltiness followed by a quick whack of hops in the background. Moderate carbonation and decent "heft" make this an easy-drinker. Gotta try this on tap sometime.

IPA meets Amber! Cloudy orange with thin white head. Mega hop nose of citrus to go with caramel & bread. Over-hopped for an amber but it works here. Caramel & bread malts mix with citrus & pine. Medium bitter finish. Ambergeddon is a fitting name.

I have had this on tap and in the bottle many times, this rating is from the bottle. Pours deep amber/copper in color with a medium off white head. Aroma is a good balance of floral and spicy hops and caramel malt. Taste is heavy on the hops for an amber ale, good malt presence as well. Tastes more like an APA to me, maybe why they call it a west coast amber in the description. Good stuff!!

Good malt body, but definitely a "hoppy" beer. Floral and citrus flavors combine with a little toast to make a great session drink.

kyzr (1468) - Montana, USA - FEB 24, 2008
Thanks to ogglethorp for this bottle. Pours copper with nice sized head. Sweet and hoppy nose. Flavor was hoppy up front with light caramel and some toasted malt. More hops than anything, yet I liked it.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - FEB 9, 2008
Clever name and a sharp label. It pours a slightly hazy amber body with a substantial head that laces heavily. The aroma is all about the PNW hopping - grapefruit, pine, citrus zest - although faint traces of sweet caramel eke out from time to time. Theres just a bit more malt in the flavor to support the hops, slightly weakening their impact but maintaining a solid level of bitterness that lasts long into the finish. Nice.
