Pours a dark amber color. Very pretty. The aroma is apricots with a little bit of peanuts. The taste is toast and some caramel. There is a hint of cooked apples. The finish is dry with oak. There is sharp carbonation in the mouth. jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 31, 2005
Nuts all the way, from the woody aroma, the hazy red-brown beer. Pours a nice off white head that lasts and laces. This beer is pecans and hickory nuts with some biscuits and honey. Woody with good body. Reminds me of an Anderson Valley Boont Amber, but not as hoppy. 1FastSTi (3358) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 31, 2005
The bottle poured to an off-white fully lasting creamy head atop a very bubbly brown/orange body. The aroma is very bready, pine hoppy, and cherries but then dies down quickly. The flavor is nutty, wheat berries, bread, grassy hops. Appealing for an amber. I don’t normally like ambers. The palate has a dry bitterness to it. There is lots of carbonation. Overall, credit is due to this small microbrew for trying something new. civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Had this on tap at Hilltop. Very good. Central Waters is an exceptional little brewery. This read was in apperance ideal, adn the taste was an excellent malty excursion. Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - NOV 20, 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 (2016) - 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 (6543) - 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. obisbeer (568) - Barcelona, SPAIN - SEP 24, 2004
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.
