bottle to glass; amber pour - not much aroma. taste starts malty but then an odd metallic flavor takes over - finishes dry and hoppy - slightly below average...

Gentle hiss as the cap comes off, pouring a semi-hazy and dull glowing copper color. Icy, graying head. Aroma has honeyed hops, sugary pecans, sweet nectar, some spruce, orange sprits, caramel and campfires. Bright and dry flavor. Hops bitter in their intention with scant sweetening for support. It’s as if carbonated orange seltzer water is overriding all other characteristics. Sandpaper palate met by hops and carbonation centered points of origin. Finishes like steel, caramel and subdued hop pellets. Thanks for the bottle, Thaichile.

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.

Staight forward clean and simple beer. Not much going on here, but it has a nice drinkability to it.

nimbleprop (8927) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Poured a translucent amber with orange hues and an active, frothy head that settles to one finger on the top. Aroma is balanced between malt and American hops. Flavor is very similar with yeasty, biscuit notes more reminscent of a Belgian than an American. Mouthfeel and finish were rather fizzy, they may have gone a bit overboard on the carbonation. I’ve had worse, not many though.

Opened with a huge hiss...and this bottle has been on a shelf for a couple months now. Pours a lightly hazy amber with golden highlights and a huge foamy off white head that left a bunch of lacing. Aroma of fruits, mixed citrus, some caramel, toffee, Flavor was lots of tingly carbonation, yeast, mixed fruits, toffee, toasted malts. I think some infection was settling in on this beer based on how carbonated it was in addition to all the fruity esters.

Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Bottle. Pours an amber body with a light head. Lots of toasted malt with caramel and a light hop finish. No etoh and a bit bland.

jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Orange-amber with modest, creamy, beige head / Nose of sour malt / Light to medium body, sour and malty, soft carbonation and a little watery, with fair finish / Simple flavors of sour malt, cooked fruit, and caramel / Below average, for a lager.

GriffinAvenue (396) - Winchester, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 1, 2006
Beautiful browish copper appearance. Smooth pour with limited head and surprisingly little aroma even with nose deep in the glass. It appears the scent needs to go through the mouth rather than the nostrils; I enjoyed a lingering aroma of the beer’s hops for a few moments following my first few sips. Surprisingly strong hoppiness for an amber lager. Not bad, but left me feeling like this beer is trying to compete in a different category
