COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This delightfully floral American style Amber Ale displays a wonderful balance while still maintaining a profound hoppy goodness. We load this beer with a ridiculous and obscene amount of West Coast hops that are added late in the boil resulting in a hoppy beer without any bitterness.

Sigmund (7230) - Tau, NORWAY - OCT 16, 2016
355 ml bottle, as Crazy Mountain Sheamus Amber Ale, Cardinal Pub & Bar, Stavanger. ABV is 5.25%, IBU 25. Amber colour, moderate white (or slightly off-white) head. Strong aroma of herbal, spicy and fruity hops, hints of caramel. Slightly dry flavour, still with hints of caramel, and plenty of earthy and herbal hops, some fruit and wood too. Woody aftertaste. Not very bitter though, but some bittering hops come through in the aftertaste. .

12 oz bottle. This one is probably underrated - I found it to be quite nice and above average. So goes the ratings world.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7489) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2016
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark amber color with a large creamy-fluffy orange-white head that lingered and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweetish, toasty and malty with sour caramel, tobacco, a slightly off presence and some fruity hops. The flavor was malty and bitter with honey, caramel, an off presence and tobacco. Fairly astringent. Medium length finish. Medium body. Not good.
