Bottle pours a reddish orange, almost no white head. Aroma is apples and malt. Flavor is dry and malty. cherries, bread and malt. Palate is thin and bitter. Overall, an ok brew for the style. 11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - NOV 13, 2004
Bottle. One of the better amber ales I have had. Decent malt and hop balance. A little more hop bitterness than typical ambers. Red amber in color. Decent head. A little sweet in the aroma, some floral hop nose. Finish is a nicely hoppy. Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - NOV 12, 2004
Pours a deep murky red amber with no head. Strong sweet front with slight bitter hop aftertaste. I think I would rate a little higher in the summer. Pailhead (6540) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Bottle: Strong aroma of caramel and light hops. Pours a dark, slightly hazy amber with a small off-white head. Nice lacing. LIght malty initial flavor with a moderate caramel and light hop finish. Not bad and definitely better than an average of 2.82. robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 14, 2004
Hazy Amber Coloring. Small Head. This Was a Very Enjoyable Ale. Very Nice Balance...Good Malt and Hops..Little Piney/Flowery... Not a Real Pronounced Brew. But Tasty, Easy to Drink..Solid Average Brew.

Cloudy amber with thin head. Sour nose with roasted notes and some fruit. Medium weight with light hop finish. Some peach, malt, pine, and light nut notes. Note bad definatly a session quality brew. BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 13, 2004
Bottled: Slightly hazed coppery red hue with small and fading fizzy head and little lace. The aroma has notes of caramel, buttered toast, faint hazelnut, aromatic and wisp of pine hops. The taste starts mildly bitter with a equal dose of background malts. Balanced but none too exciting. Some minor fruit and nut tones hidden mostly. The finish is basic easy bitterness and a dry earthiness. The feel is lively and fizzy. Just your average old American Amber. Pass. badgerben (5181) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Very dark amber color with a thin white head. Hoppy aroma with a tad of malt. Some nut flavor, very thin body. Malt at the end. Eh, it’s not bad. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 28, 2004
In the bottle at the 2004 Crescent Moon Vintage Beer Tasting. Very hoppy, but light on body. Nothing special. tomxcs (321) - California, USA - JUN 16, 2004
Clear, dark amber with off-white head. Light hops in the aroma, but not much else. A nice sweet flavor with decent bitterness at the end.
