Nice taste. They're not lying about the alcohol content, either............. kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - APR 28, 2007
Sampled at 2007 Blooms & Brews Beer Festival. Dark Amber. Small head. Flavor is sweet, with caramel and floral hops. Balanced with a nice finish. Very smooth. sbanach (222) - Alabama, USA - FEB 16, 2011
This was a good one! on tap at brewery in chicago. Smells nutty and alcohol. Tastes nutty, crystal amber, little chocolate malt/specialty grains on tounge. Little willamette hops, spicy and no floral bouquet on tounge. Tastes like a replica of my irish red I brewed in Nov. Almost a typical ESB then an amber.. boisebeer (61) - boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 31, 2012

I keep a keg in the garage and drink 2-3 beers each day. I like to drink with large swallows spaced about 5 minutes apart. Given these personal peculiarities, I enjoy this beer more than most

Had this one on draught at Brew Daze 2006. Copper colored pour, with a thin watery head, very little nose, caramel, chocolate and pronounced maltiness notes. Finished clean. Pretty good. Arnie (274) - Chicagoland, IL, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2007 On tap in a very well-priced sampler. Dark amber/light brown color. Mild nose with faint hints of malt. Smooth, silky malt flavor. Steve_0 (3818) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2013
On tap at C.B. Potts Greenwood Village location. Pour is clear copper with a small white head and decent lacing. Bready, caramelly, slightly roasty aroma - lighter notes of grass, biscuit, and straw. Taste is lightly toasty, caramelly, malty, earthy, somewhat floral, grainy, and cereal with a light bitter finish. Medium body with low carbonation. This is not a bad amber at all.

Dradt taster at RAM, Schaumburg. Brown beer with plenty of light edges. No foam after I’ve gotten to it on the sampler tray. American hop notes finally come through my stuffy nose. Yet it’s the malt that leaves the first impression on my tongue. Followed by a tangy caboose of bitterness. Pleasing fruity esters keep the hops from taking over. foyle (429) - Wyoming, USA - APR 22, 2014
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass
Appearance: a sudsy off-white head slowly dissipates with nice lacing. Color is a deep amber with plenty of streaming carbonation.
Aroma: rich roasted barley malt, a hint of coffee, some fruit and some mild herbal hops.
Mouthfeel: light and watery, slightly astringent and a somewhat dry finish.
Flavor: medium roasted barley, caramel, raisins, earthy and herbal bitterness.
Overall: a pleasant and drinkable beer, represents the style well.
