MaltOne (346) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Pours brownish amber, slightly hazy. Nice full head. Aroma faintly hoppy. Taste is grapefruit pith, mildly hop-bitter, baked grain framework, Substantial and balanced on the palate. Overall, less hoppy then expected from the label, which was a good thing - nice full bodied amber.

Poured into a becher pint glass, the appearance was a sturdy red color with a fingers worth of sly white foamy head. Stringy lace. The aroma started off with some roasted malty nuts. Some toffee/caramel sort of cleanliness hits some bitter citrus to piney hops. The flavor takes the malts and leans them up against the bitter hops, somewhat there and somewhat not. Crisp sort of roasty malts and hop burn in the aftertaste and that hits the finish somewhat dryly. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Mild carbonation. ABV felt appropriate. Overall, even with the hop burn in the aftertaste and finish, I like this one. Seems like mostly everything fits, but also perhaps an amber ale that some may need to get used to.

strong malt up front with a bitter hoppy back end. this is hoppier than many amber styles I have had. not sure if I like that or not, but its quite tasty. lots of citrus in the aroma, Nice body too. more of a red IPA tbh.

This Ambers balance has an approach thats simple yet effective. Rich caramel malt at the start, Earthy, resinous hops at the finish. Just a bit above the medium body range in terms of feel and lots of crispness at the end. If I had my way, about every Amber Ale would taste like this.

Tap at Nessun Dorma. Copper color with thin head. Smells sweet, rose and pine with a faint hint of vanilla. Lightly bitter with a clean finish.

jredmond (8005) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 15, 2016
[2015 Backlog]. Courtesy of Andy. Pours an amber body with thin ring of lace. Mouthfeel is medium to light bodied with notes of soft muddled sweet malts, faint pine and noticeable spice character. Not great - boring.

DandyWolfFloyd (1202) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Aroma - caramel malt, with stone fruit, and some mild citrus. Appearance - burnt orange body color, with fine sediment. The head is off-white and about 1 1/2". the head is frothy and settles very slowly. Taste - caramel malt, with interestingly subdued Pacific Northwest hops. Superb balance. Stonefruits and some light grapefruit. Palate - light body, thin feel, flat carbonation, and abrupt fruity finish.

12 oz bottle with a date code 00-23-2015. Not sure if thats the date it was bottled or an enjoy by date. Either way, this is oxidized as hell. All cardboard and the caramel sweetness of hop death. Not enjoyable.

12oz bottle, thanks to phaleslu/shrubber85. Dated 9-10-2105. Hazy red amber orange color. Thin khaki head. Decent retention and good ridge of lace. Spicy, kind of earthy, but stale hop. Some toasty malt, mild caramel. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, kind of astringent. Medium to bigger body. Kind of slick texture. Lighter kind of crisp carbonation, mild roughness to it. Tastes a bit older for sure. Seems like this was once an impressively hoppy & big amber, but right now it just tastes stale and rough. Didnt finish.
