COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our lightest in terms of alcohol comes in at 4.8% by volume so that malt can dominate the flavor profile. Caramel sweet malt all over the palate with a noticeable “jumping just over the barrier” citrus hop aroma. Surprisingly refreshing for such a malt driven ale. Truly and all season American Amber.

ben4321 (6827) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Location: 22 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 9/26/11

Aroma: Has kind of faint nose, what is there is sweet, caramel, and fruity notes (maybe a little apple?)
Appearance: This one pours a cloudy dark orange color with small beige head and light lace on the glass
Flavor: The taste is fairly sweet, it is similar to the nose, mostly caramel/ toffee malts, and just a touch tart
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a decent feel, tingly carbonation, and a lasting, slightly dry finish
Overall Impression: This is an alright Amber beer. It was drinkable enough, but it wasn’t particularly exciting. Decent stuff, I don’t have a ton more to add beyond that...

portableparty (2398) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Bottle. Pours a red amber with a foamy off white head that fades. Aroma grassy malt with some subtle caramel. Taste is more gass and grain malt with a caramel finish and a faint metallic flavor. Palate is thin and slick with a chaulky dry finish. Can’t say anything bad goes down easy and it’s refreshing.

dmac (6573) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JUL 14, 2011
22 oz bomber of boring beer from EZ. I wasn’t expecting much from an amber but at $3.99 I couldn’t resist. I shoul have. Man this is a boring beer. Poured a good looking hazy light chocolate brown body under a full foamy head that lasts the duration. Body is thinner with soft carbonation and easy drinking. Aroma of slight choclate and grains. Flavor of light caramel malt and toast. Boring.
