A lot of breweries are straying from the original malty American amber and are putting out ambers that are just slightly darker APAs. While these are good, It’s nice to see some folks are still doing it the old fashioned way. This is a nice, full bodied malt accented brew. There is a touch of floral hop character in the nose but very little bitterness in the finish. A nice, creamy texture keeps it easily drinkable and the relatively high level of sweetness never cloys. Overall, it works quite well.
355ml can. Poured out the expected amber colour, a little haze. Thin white head that fades out fast, a few spots of lacing. Aromas of caramel and a touch of chocolate. Flavours of caramel, earthy green hops and some toasty grains. Hop aftertaste is earthy. A nice little amber ale. ttoadee (1555) - Austin, Texas, USA - AUG 29, 2017
Amber pour, disappearing tan head. Nose is plums and malt. Middle is medium kilned malt, little caramel, earthy hops. Finish shows medium bitterness. Not bad. lokis333 (565) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - JUN 9, 2017
Clear deep amber color with medium off-white head. Aromas of light citrus, sweet hops, somewhat of strawberries and caramel malts as well as with a nice fruity touch. Palate, medium body with light smooth texture leaving rather pleasant mellow malty finish. Taste, sweet of hops, peppery and touch of spice, as well as light herbal notes with a malty backbone. Overall, you know what, not bad at all, not amazing but not bad either, goes pretty smooth and pleasant session beer. BlackHaddock (7586) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 19, 2017
12 US Fl Oz (355ml) can: BBD 14th May 18. Poured into a Leffe badged chalice at home on 19th May 17. Beer number five in a mini-session with myself. Looks lovely, clean and clear amber body, on top an off-white covering of bubbles. Malty nose, yet also resin/piney hop esters vie for attention within the aroma. Again a malty front to the flavours with a hop action that is trying to balance out the sweetness: my sweet tooth loved the battle between the malts and hops: my taste buds liked the hoppy, semi-bitter finish. Nice beer. zacgillbanks (5450) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2017
Can from Booths, Windermere. Hazy amber coloured with a thick white head. It has a slight tart and floral fruity flavour followed by earthy notes and a smooth fruity and slight nutty finish. Not bad.

12 oz can from a friend. Amber appearance with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, toffee, mild floral hops and light citrus zest. Similar flavor, adding moderate sweetness and a mild bitterness. Light to medium body with a bitter sweet finish. Decent Amber Ale overall.

Can from Booths, Media City. Slightly deeper amber ale with a very thin head. Has some gritty and tasty malts alongside an underlying tropical fruitiness. Its nose is similar and it has a fairly easy-drinking in its texture.
