2.2
hopscotch (11410) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 10, 2008
Bottle… Clear amber ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. Toffee, caramel and honey nose with lesser notes of unidentified fruit. Barely medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Leans on the bitter side of balance while providing restrained flavors of toffee and fruit. A touch bland. Short, crisp finish.

2.7
rlgk (18843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2008
Bottle. Amber color, creamy offwhite head. Malty aroma, caramel notes. Malty flavor as well, a bit onedimensional. Weak hoppy finish.

3.1
RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 4, 2008
Pours a brownish amber with a minimal crème head. Nose is like the candy part of a red candy apple. Flavor is a bit too tangy. Lacks balance and maturity. Feel is decent. It is drinkable, sure. But this lack of balance and screaming tangy edge just kills it for me.

2.2
Eyedrinkale (3235) - Astoria, New York, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Draft at Ski Bar. Amber color but the head sucks. In fact the whole beer stinks.

2.7
Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 13, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear light amber with a thin off white head and slight lacing. Aroma is typical shipyard - light to medium Diacetyl with moderate toffee sweetness, and caramel. Flavor is light with a wierrd off pasteurized twang to it- slick and lightly nutty, caramell and chocolate hint. Wierd finish- slick and bitter - almost astringent. Glad I only bought a single.

3.1
sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - OCT 19, 2007
12 oz. bottle. Pours copper with a frothy off-white head. Fruity red apple peel aroma with caramel to toffee malts and a touch of butterscotch--reminded me of English Pales and ESBs in that sense. Caramel and toast flavors balanced adequately with earthy hops. Dry, earthy finish. Seemed a tad thin in body and overcarbonated however, the only real drawbacks. Otherwise a drinkable session, but not a standout.

3.1
kramer (6991) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear amber body under a one finger fizzy off-white head that faded to a partial covering. Nose is crackery toasted malt with a light hoppiness. A slight hint of diacetyl. Flavor is toasted crystal malt with very light hop bitterness. Thankfully none of that diacetyl that I thought was in the nose showed up. Mouthfeel is light-medium bodied with a watery texture and moderate fizzy forced carbonation. Overall, just another Amber Ale. Boring.

2.8
Imaena (2359) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - OCT 11, 2007
bottle: not my favorite style. but a good representitive of its class none the less. look fort better offerings form this brewer.

2.7
hopdog (13191) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 2, 2007
12oz bottle. Poured a deeper amber color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, citrus and some grains. Tastes of caramel, citrus, grainy, and toasted malts. Thinner body.

3.4
crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - SEP 27, 2007
poured a really dark amber color, it was almost brown. A thin tan head which had some retention. Aroma was a mix of caramel and an almost corn-like malt. Flavor was initially sweet with mild caramel notes, it never really seemed fruity but there was a light wood-like character too it. It finished with a pleasant hop bite. decent.
