Great foam, great color, spicy/slighty floral after taste. The mid and after taste is strong while the front is smooth. A perfect beer if I ever tasted one.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a copper color with a small white head. The aroma is fruit and caramel malt. The taste is malt and fruit. A good beer.

Crisp cascade hop flavor is perfectly balanced with soft malt sweetness. Not overly malty like many northwest ambers.

blackmurder (236) - Whitaker, Oregon, USA - APR 26, 2012
On tap at hot mamas in Eugene Oregon. Appearance is of the standard affair. Nothing too outstanding here but quite beautiful nonetheless. The taste is quite impressive. Kind of has a nutty almost hemp-like backbone with a floral background and an earthy "smell of autumn" crispness. Pretty complex for an Amber. Easy to drink and super pleasant mouth feel. Ambers are one of my least favorite styles but Id get this one again. Comparable to African Amber by Mac and Jacks.

IPAsavedMYlife (346) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2011
Smell is nice very fresh cascade hops, sweet caramel smelling malt. Nice head, medium retention, very creamy. Taste is well balanced with sweet malt and hops, there are some dusty flavors in there which give it some depth. Very well balanced and quite surprising for such a simple recipe. Well Done. This style of beer will always score well with me. Drinkability 4/5.

UPDATED: JUN 22, 2009 PINT - Dublins Pub, Beaverton, OR. A really great amber ale - malty and sweet. A simple blend of natural, simple flavors - in the same vein as Mac and Jacks African Amber, just missing something - Very enjoyable
