Pours a medium ruddy red color, no real hop character, medium sweetness, a little boring. Reid (2626) - Salem, Oregon, USA - SEP 3, 2010
12oz can from Lifesource, Salem
Average looking amber beer with a OK light tan head that hangs around.
Aroma is pretty weak, subdued, sligh aroma of caramel,hay some slight grassy hop
taste is the same mostly semi sweet malts..a little hop and watery finish.
OK average palate.
Not too impressed with this. Very average. Weinhards used to do a similar Amber . NachlamSie (3570) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 14, 2010
Can from BBM. Looks amber fo sho. The aroma is extremely biscuity with a touch of bitter hops. It is an amber ale all the way with a bunch of sticky malt. There is a crap ton of biscuit flavor. Not real bad but too sticky to be a standby session brew. I’ll be sticking with Caldera’s IPA. Or perhaps their pale ale. troopie (2439) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Tin. Poured clear copper with thick white head. No lacing. Aroma of fruity hops, some citrus. Medium hop flavour, not quite an IPA but more hop than a pale. Crisp clean finish. Good on a warm muggy day. nearbeer (5604) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 4, 2010
12 oz can. Clear copper with a lasting ring of bubbles. Earthy spice, orange and molasses aromas. Flavor is orange, toasted walnut, molasses and earthy tea leaf. Light medium body is dry and smoothly carbonated. Nice session.

Dark red-orange, beige cover. Some caramel, spicy herbal hop aroma. Taste is apple, caramel, sweet candy, light bitter. BeerHawk (1811) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JUL 31, 2010
Can. Poured amber with an off-white head that settled to a ring and left light lace. Toasted malt aroma. The flavor found caramel malt with a hop background. Medium body. Sweet upfront with a slight bitter ending. Suttree (6505) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 24, 2010
My notes describe this as "coppery Copper", so I’m gonna go with that. Smells nice, kinda toasty and caramelly, with some hop in the background. Flavor pretty much follows suit, , maybe a bit more hop in the finish. Pretty simple, pretty tasty. Skyview (6099) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 22, 2010
Received 12-oz can via trade with 5000. Pours a semi-hazy amber colored brew with a slowly dissipating off-white head that leaves behind some nice lacing. Around of citrus zest, some caramel malt, dried dark pitted fruits and a touch of roasted nuts. Taste is medium bodied, buiscuity malt with some light citrus, orange zest, and a touch of toffee. Finish is mostly semi-dry malt, citrus/floral hops with very little bitterness. strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - JUL 18, 2010
Above average carbonation, nice orange / amber color and a thin white head. Malty tones. Long finish pushed on by the carbonation.
