Golden in color with an off white head. Sweet malty aroma. Had a slight sour palate with a high carbonation finish Eckato (147) - Gulfport, Florida, USA - JUN 22, 2007
This particular bottle poured with large head...the ale has some beautiful bubbles. The color is a cloudy amber that is very inviting. The sweet aroma is contrasted by a lingering bitterness, the contrast and balance is nice. A nice thin head is lingering...this adds to the overall look. A very nice Amber Ale this one is. kpresley77 (147) - Jackson, Georgia, USA - JUL 31, 2009
Bottle pours clear amber with thin white head. Aroma is malt and bread. First taste is sweet malt with nice hops balance. Finish is sweet. Not strong on hops but really like this one. Way better than Fat Tire. smboselli (147) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 21, 2012
A foggy pale copper pour with a thick white head that huge the glass. In addition to the sweet malty smell, there are citrus notes. Taste did not disappoint. Very smooth, delicious ale.

This is a classic session beer. It has enough malts to provide a slightly sweet flavor. But it is hopped well enough to be balanced. A touch of fruitiness makes it a grand beer experience.

Not exactly what I would deem amber; actually, more of a malty pale ale. Nice, bubbly headwith a cotton candy lace following the the tophat. Aroma is big floral hops, sweet like caramel with candied apple. Medium bodied brew, quenching and then nice hop follow up. Juicy, delicous.

Great malty aroma. Appearance is light amber and slightly opaque. Flavor is crisp and refreshing with a good hop/malt balance, a fruit flavor is very noticeable. Surprising amount of body to this type of beer. Would definitely buy again. Dogfish120 (143) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - APR 1, 2005
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. WastedYouthBrew (143) - Phila (Home of Geno's Steaks), Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2003
Sweet to the touch. I had to take a pause after I took my first sip. I was drinking Birra Moretti before this and was not expecting it to come along so brutishly. Ripping and tearing apart my taste buds like a box of sour patch kids mixed with rusty nails. Not bad, not bad at all. sammy3D (141) - Lawrenceville, Georgia, USA - JAN 26, 2011
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.
