Tmoney99 (14479) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 9, 2008
Draft at Bell’s tasting. Poured a hazy copper color with an average creamy off-white head that was mostly diminishing and had good lacing. Good malty and citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body with slick dry texture. Moderate well balanced smooth flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good brew.

Served on draft at Beer Run as part of a small Bells tap takeover. Pours a hazy reddish-amber color with a medium frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of earthy, floral and citrus hops with toffee and caramel malts. The taste is bitter earthy hops and toffeeish malts. Medium bodied. Very drinkable.

Dogbrick (13010) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2008
Sample at the Bell’s tasting at Brews Cafe on 3/6/08: This brew is a clear reddish-copper color with a thin off-white head that burns away quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of light hops, earthy malt and citrus. Light to medium body with mild hops, toasted malt and spice flavors. The finish is hoppy and malty with notes of pine and citrus in the aftertaste. Above average overall.

A nice hearty iperial amber. Lots of hops in this one and a very tasty malt bill that has caramel and even cocoa notes.

Sammy (12201) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2011
Enjoyed on tap at the brewery tasting room. A hoppy red that’s a very decent and interesting beer. A reddish tinge. Good malt backbone.

phaleslu (10247) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2015
Draft at Arnold’s, served in a pint glass. Pours a cloudy burnt orange with a centimeter or so of frothy off-white head that forms a lasting cap. The hops are really active in this amber ale, with an initial whiff of soap and perfume. The amber and caramel and lightly toasted malts take a minute to emerge, and there’s some floral and grapefruit and orange character to the hops, with an underlying earthiness. Medium-bodied, with a bitter, smooth mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Great take on an amber ale; hop it up a bit for balance and to make it interesting. I liked this.
