Bottle Hi-Time Cellars. Pours copper amber with a slight off-white head. Aroma is malty with a slight fruit note. Med minus body. Flavor is roasty malt with very little hop. Yet it comes across fairly dry. Seems to develop bitter in the finish. Better than many ambers. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 28, 2003
(draft) Clear copper body with small beige head. Aroma is sweet caramle, fruity. Taste is medium sweet, chocolate, some caramel, and a good earthy bitterness starts mid-tongue and carries through to the finish. Light medium body, some crispness. slowrunner77 (12591) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Not too shabby for an amber, but not a standout either. Balanced aroma of carmel and nutty malts, maybe a touch of honey, and citrus and pine from the hops. The flavor is similar, but a little more on the boring side of things. decent session, though. " marcus (10573) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 7, 2013
On tap at Claim Jumper, Roseville. Pours reddish brown with a modest beige head and a tart toffee aroma. There is a medium-bodied smoked malt flavor with a raspy finish. GT (10002) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 9, 2010
Tap at Claim Jumper. Listed as CJ Original Red Ale, which is a made up fairy tale name. I’m assuming it is this one since the first thing I noticed when this was brought out was that it was clearly amber and not red. Poured clear amber with a thin, off-white head and little lace. Weak floral hop aroma. Taste is tinny, metallic, watery, grainy, residual crystal malt sugars. Meh.

I was in an Outback Restaurant in Burlington, WA and there was a beer called "Outback Amber" the waitress said it was made by Pyramid - well Pyramid does not have an everyday Amber Ale and did not respond to my request if they made this beer and after searching the Internet I found that that this brewer makes an Outback Amber Ale and makes several house beers for many restaurants so....
Light white head, light amber appearance. Decent blend of hops and malt. Would make a decent session ale. Nothing too memorable nor distracting - went well with the steak. Braudog (6804) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2005
Had this as a Lucille’s BBQ house beer ... True amber with metallic flavors. Good citric bite with a solid malt base. Thin, but not too bad a beer. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 17, 2007
Like every Bayhawk beer I have had, it has an aroma of butterscotch. It makes you think that it could be possibly be diacetyl. Perhaps the brewer does this on purpose. The appearance is a copper red that it clear with a foamy head. It tastes like caramel malt with a little hop crispness. It is between light and medium bodied and can be used in session drinking. A very average, albeit drinkable ale. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - AUG 24, 2008
Tap @ Lucille’s Smokehouse BBQ in Torrance, CA as their house amber: Pours a copper color, nice head and lacing. Caramel nose with a light brush of apple and earthy spicy hops. The flavor is chewy and hoppy with a nice floral finish and a lingering caramel note. Nothing marvelous but it makes for a good house beer. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - MAR 7, 2003
Medium brown color. Medium head. Aroma is malty and slightly nutty. A medium bodied amber. Malts are nutty and slightly sweet. Hops are fairly bitter. Well balanced. Very drinkable. Nice but nothing special. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
