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. 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. 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. 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. 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.

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. 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. 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. 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. 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.
