This is a quintessential English ale with just a tad more hops to give it a west coast personality. Reminds me of Fish Tail amber ale. Man this was delicious!
zapach przyjemny, słodki, karmel, toffi, słody, rodzynki, lekkie praliny, nugat, orzechy laskowe, trochę ciemnego chleba na zakwasie, ładnie zgrane. kolor brązoworudy, opalizujący, w toni zawieszone bardzo dużo malutkich drobin, piana jasnobeżowa, niezbyt obfita, ale stara się być trwała. w smaku raczej wytrawne, lekko wodniste, słody, słodki karmel, nugat, przypieczony chleb, spieczone herbatniki, orzechy laskowe i włoskie, trochę ziół i przypraw. goryczka umiarkowana, ale ze względu na niską słodowość dość wyraźna. orzechy, zielone rośliny, przyprawy i lekkie nuty podpalane. nasycenie umiarkowane.

I got this in a trade with Wasatch. Thanks John!
It pours a reddish gold with about a 1/2 inch head of foam. The foam doesn't hang around for very long and there's not much lacing.
The smell is of caramel malt and hop bitterness and is about equal in proportion.
The taste is of caramel malt, roasted malt, some bread, and midway through and through the finish, there's a nice hop bite that gives a nice balance to the over all flavour but it's still slightly on the sweet side and, for me, it works nicely. Amber/Reds that are tasty enough to keep me interested for the entire session aren't all that easy to find for my palate but this one fits the bill. I recommend it because it's tasty and it's a good brew to session.
Hazy amber to copper, lasting small off-white head. Red fruits, toasty malts, light hops, very fruity. Mostly dry with some malty sweetness. Medium body, creamy texture, moderate carbonation, dry aromatic finish. A good example of the style. Luneylane (249) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - SEP 30, 2017
A bottle from the basement of 101. Aroma: malty caramel, very inviting. Appearance: Pours a generous tan head which quickly dissipates to 2 mm. of froth. Hazy dark amber. Palate: medium-bodied and rather creamy, average carbonation. Flavoursome malty finish. Taste: medium sweet and bitter, well-balanced. Some coffee at the finish, tastes boozier than it is, I like it.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2017 Can from Liquor Express. It poured an amber color with a thin white head. The aroma is malty with notes of caramel and some stone fruits. The taste is sweet.

I don't know what it is about ambers but they just have a very flat taste to them even when you know it's fresh. That lingering flavor trumps what could be a really good beer

A good brew to sip on a summer’s night. A smooth amber that goes down easy. wilde_joost59 (311) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 12, 2017
Uit fles, thuis. Eerst een mooie schuimlaag, zakt wel snel in. Mooie amberkleur. Ruikt goed. De smaak bevalt goed, niet te zwaar, maar wel vol genoeg. Prima bier. buddybutch (128) - Nantes, FRANCE - JUL 2, 2017
Bottle. Thin beige head, not lasting. Nice nose, caramel, dry fruits. But the taste is quite disappointing : thin body, quite dry, not that much flavour. A surprisingly medium bitterness. Not an ordinary amber. Not bad, but could not be what you look for when you want an amber....
