I admit that amber ale isn’t my favorite style, and I suppose this was par for the course. Nice color, subdued malt sweetness, subdued hoppiness. Nothing to hate, but not a lot to get excited about. Like every other amber ale I’ve ever tried.

On tap @ Barcade. A blurry deep golden one with a small lasting off-white head. Smells mild hopped. Some ripe fruits and a little bit of crackers. Decent, nothing more. Easy to drink. Its mild oily in the mouth and below average on the carbonation. Not a horrible tasting lager this actually. More vienna like IMO. Biscuity in a way, a little sweetness. Kinda floral in the taste. Its nothing Im gonna remember for too long for the flavor, but Ill definitely remember it due to the time I went to Barcade in NYC. 19.06.2015

Bottle. Clear amber color, medium off white head. Aroma of toasted biscuit. Taste is malty, slightly nutty, slight earthy. Good example of the style.

rjplumer (1131) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 31, 2015
(12 oz.can) Mild caramel malt aroma. Hazy amber and gold body with a healthy head to start. Mild caramel malt taste with only mild bitterness. Clean and bodied finish. Well balanced and enjoyable.

DSG (15035) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 9, 2015
Can sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Amit. Clear deep gold. Aroma of malt, caramel and floral hops. Sweetish flavor with malt, floral hops, a bit of caramel and a nice bitter finish, a bit piney. Light to medium-bodied. Decent.

At Cheers, Beacon Hill, Boston, MA. Classified as amber lager, though quite bitter. Taste (and smell) actually reminding of the sea.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
Light amber pour, quite clear, with lots of nearly white head. Very grainy nose, almost to the point where it smells like fresh wort. There’s a little hint of caramel underneath but this is really quite one dimensional to me. The palate is about the same, but slightly better. There’s a little spicy hint that gives it at least a touch of character. This is definitely a pass.

Pours a clear coppery amber with off-white head. Bready malty aromas. Citrus and honey notes. A pretty average lager, nothing special at all.

Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Spicey and nutty earthy aroma with some metallic background. Clear orange color, collapsing head. Bittersweet caramel taste, very much an English brew in this way, although it’s a lager. Crisp clean body, for medium length sessions. Okay stuff, not a match for the heavy hitters in this category.

SamP01 (668) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Pours a coppery amber with a medium off white head. Aroma of light caramel malt some grains and light fruity notes. Taste same as aroma with mild bitter notes. Palate is a medium body with mild carbonation. Finish is light caramel malt and grains, light bitterness and fruity notes, and a mild nutty ending. Overall not a very robust brew in flavor and aroma, just an ok brew.
