jollyraider (252) - Los Angeles, California, USA - SEP 17, 2006
Bottle purchased at Bells. Rich copper body and puffy white head, somewhat musty aroma. Thin malt, low hop character, yeast stands out a bit. Nothing special, just a pretty average ale, but tasty.
Earlier Rating: 1/14/2004 Total Score: 3.8
Nice amber/orange color with tons of suspended sediments that don't even move-this is quite hazy. Tastes of hopps and fruit, though I can't really taste what.

From the bottle, this pours a cloudy amber-orange with lots of fresh lacing and a white foamy head that maintains a healthy proportionate size to the rest of the beer. Aroma is primarily caramel malt, but also has some fruity earthy hop notes, somewhat reminiscent of caramel apple. Flavor is a solid and sweet caramel maltiness, bready, with bitter vinuous and herbal earthy hops in the finish. Medium bodied palate with some overall tanginess and mildly sour bitterness, not all that smooth. Objectively I would say this is a good earthy amber ale, subjectively itís not a preferred example of the style for me. Similar to New Belgiumís Fat Tire, but with more caramel malt.

355ml bottle. Cloudy, amber-ish dark golden colour with small, creamy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Sweet-ish malty aroma, hints of caramel, peanut, fruity overtones, hints of red berries. Taste is moderately sweet malty, fruity, bitter hoppy counterweight, hints of caramel and red berries; lasting bitter finish.

jsporrer (853) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 20, 2017
Pours a hazy medium amber with a thin white ring. Light carbonation and some lacing. Aroma of bready grains and light malts. Light to medium body. Taste is malt based with a lightly bitter hop bite. Fairly smooth finish and a lingering aftertaste. Fairly enjoyable but not great.

Draft at the lizard. Bland on the aroma and copper in color. Taste the malt. smooth on the palate. Very easy to drink. Above average in style.

BadAprilia1000 (427) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 2, 2017
Pours a reddish color with a great thick white head. Aroma is malt, hops, bread, dried fruit (mild), and caramel. Taste is bitter hops with a medium malt body with no fruitiness and very dry in a great way. Great amber, one of the few of the style that isnít overly sweet.

jrodooo5 (1584) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - DEC 2, 2016
An amber that pops w/ flavor! Pours copper w/ a white head & spotty lacing. The aroma has lovely caramel & malt notes & they carry through in the flavor. It finishes w/ just a tad bit of bitterness to add to the complexity. This is one good amber!

Hopper8 (81) - Holland, Michigan, USA - NOV 30, 2016
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2016 Itís gotta a fair bit of pale malt to the flavor. There is a nice balance between the hops and the malts. Overall this beer has some sweetness and is a very drinkable beer.
