Bottle. Semi-hazy mahogany pour. Foamy head. Aroma of pine hop and caramel malt. Medium mouthfeel. Taste is malty, Caramel, and malty. Good beer. hopscotch (11451) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 17, 2003
Crystal clear, deep amber hue. Small, creamy, ivory head. Mostly lasting with very good lacing.
Grapefruit, evergreen and white pepper in the nose. Some floral notes thrown in for good measure. Smells like a nicely hopped brew.
The flavor is malty for a moment... then the "well-thought-out" hop addition kicks in up front. Lightly pungent and moderately bitter with notes of English toffee and butterscotch throughout.
Medium-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, dry and bitter finish with a hint of dairy butter and butterscotch at the wee end.
Reminds me of Butte Creek's Roland's Red.
This is a HopHead's Amber Ale!

Bottled. Pours a slightly hazy reddish amber color with a medium sized beige head. The aroma has mild grapefruit hops, moderately sweet malt, a hint of pine, and grass. The flavor has a moderately sweet malt backbone with additional notes of caramel, grapefruit, pine, bread, and grass. Light to medium bodied. This one is just ok.

Pours dark amber/almost burgundy with a creamy, off-white head. Aroma of malt, fruit, caramel, cabernet, hops. Tastes malty, with a good hop presence, and some finishing caramel. Medium mouthfeel, with a slightly dry finish. Very complex and well balanced, with some Belgian dubbelish qualities. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 19, 2009
Amber pour. Off white head. Aroma is mostly toasted caramel malt, floral hops and a touch of fruit. Flavor has more hops than I expected with less caramel than most ambers. Not bad. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007
