Light, clear brown pour. Malty caramel aroma. Sweetness is neatly balanced by the hops with a nice, creamy mouthfeel. residual sweetness and bitterness conflict afterwards.
Some rust and some water like a car by the riverside. Amber pour with good gead. Clean finish with light tang. Tap at brewery. snoworsummer (5962) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 29, 2015
Draft at the brewery. Pours clear reddish amber with a foamy amber head. Smells like caramel, light toffee, and light earth. Tastes like caramel, earth, light toffee, and smooth dry malt. Light body and low carbonation. BeerViking (4999) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2015
Amber-grown with a thin head. Light toffee malt nose.Sweet caramel in a Scotch sort of vein, offset by pine and herbal hoppiness. SudsMcDuff (8469) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - OCT 4, 2015

A pretty standard, fairly mediocre amber ale. Light maltiness, sweet and forgettable.
Ernest (7792) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2015
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly/fully diminishing.
Body is medium to dark amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (caramel, malt syrup), lightly hoppy (apricot).
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, syrupy texture, soft carbonation.
Pretty beginner homebrew-ish...syrupy, simple, and overly sweet. ajnepple (6995) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2014 On tap at Cactus Jack’s. Amber and clear with a sticky white head and light lacing. Toasted malts, light hops, caramel, toffee, light chocolate and earthy aroma. Similar flavor, pretty mild and easy to drink, lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Average body with a crisp feel. Not bad.
Update: I had 4 or 5 of these last night. Definitely some brown ale characteristics with this beer. 647313 onceblind (10342) - Denver, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Tap at brewery. Clear amber hued with a thin, fast-dissipating head. Slightly off aroma for an amber, smelled kinda candy sweet and a little vegetal, though there was also a touch of caramel and some sort of tone akin to fresh linen. Odd. Taste was much more classical, though not as caramelly sweet as I had hoped. Malty earthiness starts the flavor with a little bitterness and just the littlest bit of some sort of maple-like sweetness. Surprisingly dry overall. Not a huge fan.

Pours a clear amber with a finger of rocky tan head. Decent retention and a little lacing. Aroma was mild, slight sweet malt, bread, and hay. Flavor was sweet and and mellow up front, mildly malty, grain. Faintly nutty with caramel, fairly light taste overall. Relatively clean finish. Moderate carbonation and a light body. Clean, drinkable, and tasty, but could have a bolder flavor.
