Suprised by this one, pours a yellow/dark orange with a decent head. Starts off roasted malts, fruits, then proceeds to smooth out with little carb/alch presence. A well brewed beer.

Amber color poured from the bottle. Cream to tan head with some lacing on the pint glass. A bit of unfiltered stuff floating around. Some grapefruit and salted fig on the nose with a touch of metallics. Nice malty presence with some fruit flavors & buttered sourdough giving an almost honey mustard balance between the sweet malts and hops. Finishes with a bittersweet medium mouthfeel. Honey mustard salty pretzel is the best overall description I can think of but certainly not cloying with the sweetness.

Amber with a lite tan head. Lots of tiny bubbles and peppered with malts when held up to light. Slight bitter malty aroma. Smooth malty flavor. Nice!

Great amber. Lots of caramel malt background. Nose is wonderful. Very easy to drink. Great fall/winter brew.

Iím not usually too impressed by a standard Amber Ale, but this hit the spot. The aroma is fresh, pretty hoppy, with a touch of sweetness. The taste is a great balance of sweet caramel malt and some bitter hops. Overall, well done.

Hazy brown orange color with a light head. Nice taste with hoppiness at the end

Pours a murky orange color with a nice foamy off white head. Aroma is pleasant with some toffee, butterscotch, citrusy hops, and a bit toasted. Taste is pretty well balanced with more of the citrus and malty sweetness noted in the aroma.

JustinBathurst (134) - Corner Brook, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 6, 2007
Nice bronze colour. The smell is excellent--a bit of sweet floral, some malt, well-rounded. A yeasty bread loaf scent is also there. Mouthfeel is average, but not bad. Taste makes up for this. Subdued sweet start, some orange peel taste, sweet kick without being too overpowering, bitter chocolate-roasted coffee finish. Bitter aftertaste that lingers for a little while. Some hops to make it worthwhile. This would be an excellent session beer, I think. High quality and easy to kick back while still enjoying the taste.

Pours a misty copper with small off white head. Some visible yeast particles. Caramel malt aroma with fruit tones. Mildly sweet flabors with some apple caramel bite. More sophisticated than most ambers. I also found it to be a little low on carbonation... Good beer.
