Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a light brown color with a bar pour’s kind of slim off white semi-foamy head that dissipated at a moderate pace. Trim lace.
The aroma had some caramel/toffee malts, light nuts, some bready/yeastiness.
The flavor moderately leaned towards the sweet side through the prior mentioned aromas. Bready sweet aftertaste with the same sort of finish.
The palate was somewhat close to medium bodied, perhaps a tad under with a decent sessionability about it. Decent carbonation. ABV felt fine.
Overall, decent easy drinking amber lager worthy of having again preferably with food. JAF737300 (1291) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2007
This dark lager pours reddish and offers a nice feeling of sweet malt. This malt then gives way to the hops that allow for a nice crisp balanced finish. yespr (46805) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 30, 2007
Sample from tap at the brewpub in Canal street. Pours red with a light brown/off-white head. Toffee caramel malty aroma. Flavour is malty, slight yeasty, minor metallic note. Good hoppiness blending in with the toffee malt. Dogbrick (13412) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2007
Sample at Beer Works Fenway: Pours a clear light amber color with a thin light khaki head that dissipates rapidly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of crystal malts and a bit of hops. Light body with a sweet malt flavor offset by hops. The finish is creamy and sweet with not much aftertaste. Overall I am firmly in the "Where’s the fire?" column. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 10, 2007

(Canal St. Location) Camamel flavors. Very sweet tasting. Hops blended in. Not 9-alarmy at all... not on fire, certainly. Very relaxing. Light copper color. GeniusGirl (221) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 11, 2004
tap @ canal boston. deep orange sunset copper hues...sweet caramel aroma...nice and smooth... "Why the alarms... What’s the emergency?" This is a beer to sit back and relax with. Nuffield (4187) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 31, 2002
Amber golden color, I was told this was actually a bottom-fermented brew. Some bitterness of finish, and some flavor, but only marginally more than the general urine-yellow lagers. Gregory (357) - Pullman, Washington, USA - APR 23, 2002
Very different beer. IT's called an amber, but it really tastes like something between an ale and a belgian white. Creamy palate, but very strange spice in the flavor. Not a big fan Merc (313) - Pullman, Washington, USA - APR 23, 2002
Cask Conditioned. Cloudy dun brown appearance with a huge beautiful head. Head had texture of whipped cream and stayed for the whole beer, leaving thick lacing. Highlighted the creamy palate overall. Interesting spicy aroma. On first taste, a very intersting beer. Still spicy, fruity, with a fairly bitter finish. Couldn't keep it up though. A harsh minerally water taste came through, the bitterness lost its edge, and became very bland. Recomended purely for the palate.
