Malty and light. Caramel sweetness. Mild grassy hops lend it a bit of balance. Tried for the first time back in 2009. RobertDale (6848) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - FEB 26, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. Comes amber with a small beige head. Aroma of malt, citrus, and caramel. Taste is similar. Easy to drink, but nothing memorable. TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Pours a mostly translucent deep amber with a smaller creamy off white head. Aroma of nutty Munich malt, caramalr and light citrusy hop notes. Flavor of the same Munich malt however the hop profile comes through a bit more in the flavor profile. Mostly citrusy and lightly spicy hop notes. Thorpe429 (5122) - , Illinois, USA - FEB 18, 2011
On tap at the brewpub in August 2009. Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderately deep amber color with an off white head and a good number of lace rings. Nose brings slightly sweet and toasted bred and a bit of earthy hops. Taste and feel come together to present a somewhat dry beer with moderate sweetness comic from caramel and toast. Drinks fairly well and is one of the better beers that we had at this location.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours an amber body with a white head. Malty nutty body with a light chewy salty fruit tone. Nerds and willy wonka candy sweetness. Bit of a mess.

Taster on tap at the brewpub. Pour is clear caramel brown and ruby. Not much of an off-white head. Aroma of biscuit malt and hazelnuts. Taste is nicely sweet and nutty, good full flavor with a lighter drinkable palate. Some nice lingering roastiness in the finish. Nice amber. unclemike (3163) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - APR 13, 2008
On tap at brewpub. Light amber color, slight smell of chocolate, this was a very good beer. tjthresh (1872) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - JAN 19, 2008
On tap at the brew pub. Amber orange with a smallish white head. Smells like butter and raspberries. Tastes buttery sweet and fruity. Medium body. Average carbonation. Sweet finish. Dull. Gregis (1291) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Pours a clear copper with a ring of off-white bubbles clinging to the edge of the glass when it reached my table. The nose is caramel malt and faint fruity hops. Medium-bodied and grainy with a dry metallic finish. Roasted caramel malts with a fruity hop backing, concluding with a dry metallic note. I’m not sure if I’m just a glutton for punishment or I’m just hoping to find a diamond-in-the-rough, but almost all of the ambers that I’ve tried (with the exception of a few) finish off like I’m sucking on a penny. I just keep trying them, hoping the next one will be "the one" that helps me understand why so many brewers and brewpubs make this style.
