12oz bottle 7/8/09 (Binny’s Naperville)-Pours amber with a small off white head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and slight hops. Taste is of the same with a bit of hops and dryness on the back end. This medium bodied brew is pretty weak.
From a bottle at the DC RB gathering October 15, 2017.it is a clear golden color with an off white head. The Aroma Is toffee. And the taste is thin and some maltiness Iphonephan (7283) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - OCT 15, 2017

12oz bottle. Poured an amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma was light sweet malts, light toasted malts. Caramel notes, light nutty toffee. Touch of bread. Flavor is similar. It's okay - nice to have a little more than just sweet malt like you get from a lot of ambers. Psu319 (17) - - SEP 15, 2017
UPDATED: SEP 15, 2017 Got this in a beer of the month club. Love red ales. I would buy it if I saw it again. tfontana (1129) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 8, 2017
Bottle pour into shaker pint glass from Greg & Jane’s Beer and Wine. Appearance is clear, dark red with decent sparkle, 1/2-finger width off-white head with decent retention and fair leggy lacing. Aroma is bready malt with caramel and fruit. Taste is as aroma. Palate is medium bodied with smooth, thick texture; average-to-lively carbonation and sweet but dry finish. Overall, a good choice if you’re looking for a pretty straightforward amber without a lot of nuance.

Dark amber colour. Big head but quickly dissipating. Can smell both hops and malt in the aroma. Okay to drink if not very strong in flavour. Strykzone (7659) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - DEC 5, 2016
12 ounce bottle from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. A deep amber pour that has a big four finger of foam. The aroma is caramel malts. Those begin with an Irish tilt to them. Fruit is kind of what you would get in a fruit cake and that includes some spice. It is toasty. Finish is toffee and earth. Decent. hayduke (5677) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 5, 2016
Shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. Poured amber with a beige head. Nice lacing. Nose of sweet caramel malts. Medium in body. Flavor is malty and there is not a lot of hops. Earthy finish with some light bitterness Drinkable though.

Punertavan ruskea olut pienehköllä, ei juuri pitsiä jättävällä vaahdolla. Tuoksu makea ja karamellisen maltainen. Maussa myös karamellista makeutta, loppumaussa mukavasti katkeruutta. Keskitäyteläinen suutuntuma. Ihan mukavasti tässä on runkoa voltteihin nähden. Hintalaatusuhde todellakin kohdallaan! Patrickctenchi (6731) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUL 22, 2016
Deep amber with a small vaniila/beige head.
Caramel, light nut scent.
Taste is the same....decent, but a pretty typical Amber Ale.....plain.
