This amber pours a orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is fruity and sweet, touch of caramel. A medium bodied amber. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are slightly citrusy and grapefruity. Nice balance. A touch sweet, but there is some hoppiness to balance. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

sayravai (4710) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 18, 2006
(Bottled) Very hazy dark amber color with lots of floating yeast. Sourish-malty, yeasty aroma. Sourish-malty, slightly acidic flavor with some Belgian Ale’ish yeastiness. Medium-bodied, quite low-carbonated, slightly acidic palate. An interesting Amber Ale, but not the most pleasant one around.

Tap @ cafe: Light copper/orange hue with small off white head. Aroma is crisp, tart, toasted malts, caramel. Flavor is malty, crisp, hint of light caramel, corn, fairly bitter finish.

puzzl (3260) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 14, 2006
Very unassertive, slightly bready aroma. Flavor has a touch of lemon on top of fresh bread, cheese, slight cinnamon. Very unremarkable.

KingpinIPA (841) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2006
Light golden color. Smells sweet. Taste is ok. I can taste tons of sweet malt but I wouldnt drink this all the time.

direwolf600 (37) - Philadlephia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Not their best, but still an overall quality amber ale from a Class A brewer. Finish is a little off imho.

3.2
zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Cloudy amber color. Sweet aroma. Taste is smooth and sweet, but not overpoweringly so.

3.5
goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Draft @ Bell’s Eccentric Cafe: Slightly hazed amber color with a medium sized off-white head. Very malty. Caramel and some fruit in both the flavor and aroma. Light bitterness in the finish.

This tastes like a quality brew, but they said it had a sweetness and based on that I bought some. It was too hoppy to really be sweet. The malts didn’t really "balance" the hops flavor either, in my opinion. By being adaptable and changing my expectations based on what I now know to be true about this brew, I will gladly finish the six pack, since, after all, it is quality brew. However, I wasn’t really after the bitter hops flavor at all, so I feel its misrepresented.

badnewsbeers (2312) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 27, 2006
average amber...typical reddish copper body with little head...aroma is of caramel and sugary malts with a touch of floral hops...flavor is similar but seems more dominated by the hops than the aroma would suggest...nice malt/hop complex...no 3.5 however
