bottle: brown pour w/ thin tan head. Nutty chocolate, smooth caramel with piney hops and some astringency. hint of licorice. pretty tasty, almost surprisingly. Leighton (21887) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours an opaque, amber-ruby with a fluffy, beige head. Light aroma of sweet malts, caramel, and brown sugar. Flavor is a tad metallic, but also holds some warm brown sugar. A touch of bitterness - you would probably notice if the hops weren’t there, but as is this is mostly a malt show. Semi-sweet and syrupy in the finish. Medium-light in body, well carbonated. The character shines a bit more as the beer warms. Decent overall. kopher (593) - New York, USA - MAR 27, 2009
red-brown pour, off-white head
aroma is pretty malty, with some pear and other fruit
tastes kind of watered down, there’s some malt and very slight bitterness in the finish, but it’s kinda boring
and i do not believe there’s 7% abv in here
thin body also, but i guess that complements the lack of flavor blipp (9504) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 26, 2008
Bottle. Pours red with a beige head. Sweet aroma with toasty malt and earthy hoppy notes. The flavor is just a bit boozy, with caramel, toast and just a touch of hops. Pretty good. tgncc (3136) - Bellmore, New York, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Sweet aroma, mainly of caramelized malts, and a definite if small component of alcohol. (I know, the ABV is not high, but I smell it.) Overall, very pleasing. The appearance is amber, of course, with a modest white head. Very attractive. The flavor is roasted malts, caramel, toffee, minor hop contribution. The finish is mainly sweet malts, and is very pleasing as well. Overall, a very respectable beer.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a murky amber with a moderate off-white head that lasted until mid-glass and left partial lace. Very, very light aroma of malt. I really had to get my nose down into the glass to pull anything out of this one. Thankfully, the flavor was more forthcoming with caramel malt up front and some dry hops towards the finish. Very little sweetness to the malt and the hops finish was short-lived. Meh. mcbackus (758) - Merritt Island, Florida, USA - AUG 24, 2008
bottle from joekinty: pours a dark amber caramel colour with a small off white head. a nice deep malt aroma full of caramel with a decent hop profile to go with it, some dark breads also decent aroma. flavour is very bready with a toffe malt that is a little dirty tasting, some earth hops round out the flavour and make it quit enjoyable not the best amber i have ahd but a good drinker. malrubius (2963) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - AUG 17, 2008
12 ounce bottle in a pint glass. Caramel and mild chocolate aroma. Toasted caramel malty flavor with mild ripe fruit and mild bitter and nutty finish. Very malty. medium-full body, medium carbo. Pretty damn good for an amber ale. joekinty (263) - rockledge, Florida, USA - AUG 12, 2008
I actually enjoy this brew but it did make me feel a tad spacey really good amber beer caramel maltt and chocolate flavors biscuity toasty Homer321 (5143) - Melboring, Florida, USA - AUG 10, 2008
slight coffee taste, but there is defintely some grainy bitterness going on. maybe from the UFOs? earthy hops, but lacks maltiness. slight toffee and biscuit taste.
