I thought this was a pretty unique beer. Nice brown ale maltiness when the beer first finds you tongue, but then pow, your tongue is enveloped by a real nice hoppy blast. A unique and tasty beer. JCW (1278) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 5, 2003
Reddish brown color, translusent. Carmel and pine aroma. Flavor is balanced, I think taste some spice too, pepper maybe, anyway its a well balanced enjoyable beer. Thanks Jazz88! aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - MAR 11, 2005
Clean balanced amber with definite caramel and crytal malt. some residual sweetness with a toffee finish. Mild hop presence with some grass. turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - JUL 29, 2005
Bottle poured a dark red amber with a thick head and lacing.
Sweet malt and nitty aroma.
flavor is malt,hops and tobaco with a hopy malt finish. footbalm (1219) - Western Minneapolis Suburbs, Minnesota, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Bottle from Irishboy. Thanks Richard. The score seems a bit high for this. I am not a big fan of Amber Ale’s and this is right up there with the so-so brews in thie style. Some hops and some funk but..

meh... this was o.k. i got a lot of grapefruit flavors in this one. amber with light head. bitter end. o.k. not fab. SubstanceT (1092) - Saint Louis, Missouri, USA - JUL 18, 2004
dark amber with a medium sized medium lasting white frothy head. The nose is malty with chalk in the nose and the taste is nearly the same. The finish is malty but this is just so plain and boreing. AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - MAR 6, 2005
Very good amber ale. Smooth with the expected carmel malt, but this one had enough hops to wake you up and take full attention. Medium bodied, mellow, easy drinking. Very good. mnmike (1086) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 7, 2013
Amber beer that drips of caramel and cocoa which is a strange target for this style. Mangino (1027) - Mississippi, USA - FEB 3, 2005
Pours a dark amber, nice off white head. Aroma of "mellow malt" and a little hoppy kick. Flavor is very malty, sweet, with a hoppy kick. A nice brown!. Thanks to Beerguy101 for this one!
