Poured into a nonic pint glass, the appearance was a mostly clear bronzed light amber color with a white foamy rocky head. Lots of foamy messy lace.
The aroma starts off with sweet and roasty nuts. Crisp bitter grassy hops.
The flavor blends for the most part between sweet and roasty. Bitterness carries underneath for balancing purposes. Lingering nutty malt aftertaste. Quick dry roasty nutty finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fair sessionability about it. Good carbonation. ABV felt just right.
Overall, nicely done amber ale worthy of coming back to. andrewje41 (4153) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Draft pour pint at Tipsy Cow. Continuing with the cooler day amber trend that I thought of about 20 minutes ago. Being in the mood for an amber or brown is rare for me, so I’m going to take advantage of the opportunity. Mostly clear bronze pour with a lasting rocky head. Nutty malt aroma. Has a noticeable bitterness up front with a bold nutty malt constant. Heavier hop bitterness makes this interesting. Nutty malt aroma makes this inviting. Non-sweet finish makes this different. Overall an enjoyable beer here. Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - JUL 20, 2015

Tap @ brewpub. Light amber color with a white slick of foam. Aroma has some light toasted malt and caramel and the taste includes some malt sweetness and toasted notes with a slight touch of bitterness. Clean mouthfeel. Good beer.

On tap at Boundary Bay, pours a hazy orange amber with a small white head. Aroma of dry caramel malts, dry citrus hops and bready malt. Flavour is quite full bodied and "nourishing" for an amber, with caramel malts, a considerable citrus hop punch and bready notes. Again, full bodied for the style, packing a full flavour. Good stuff. fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 8, 2013
Draught at the brewpubFerris (16268) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 9, 2012
Hazy amber color with creamy head. As Amber Ale, this one is better than the average, having some decent malt flavor and than decent hopping, moderately fruity (aroma and flavor), correctly bitter; balanced final.
Not complicated, but nice.
Draft - Very aromatic sweet malts and perfume hops. Cloudy amber with minimal head. Tastes like a hopped amber, caramel and pine, but a bit on the too sweet side. Not bad and I would happily drink this, but there are much better versions out there. SHIG (4964) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - APR 17, 2012
Draft: Poured a reddish brown with an off white colored head. The aroma was light and almost nonexistent, not unpleasant just lacking. Taste is a mix of malts and yet balanced with some light hop. yespr (47032) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - MAR 9, 2012
From tap at Taphouse Grill as Dry-Hopped Amber. Pours clear and golden orange with a small, creamy and white head. Aroma is fruity, light toasted malty. Smooth malty, caramelish and sweet. Crisp fruity and light bitter finish.
