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.

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...

It's an OK beer. Someone who enjoys an amber would appreciate this beer. It has a nice color to it; however, personal preference is a stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Pretty standard amber that doesnt do too much to differentiate itself from other easy drinking ambers. That being said it is not bad.

TAR (2787) - Blue Ridge Mountains, North Carolina, USA - JAN 25, 2012
Bloody orange. Short-lived light tan head. Notes of plastic, medicine and red licorice strongly permeate the nose amid hints of fruity esters (pineapple, peach fuzz, plum jam), bready malt and shades of orange marmalade. Firm carbonation. Sweetly malty yet wonderfully light in weight, initially. An ensuing plasticlike and medicinal astringency combine with the red licorice to tarnish things with considerable dullness. Alcohol flirts at a fusel sharpness, as well. Sweet and succulent center is sustained by notes of peach and pineapple upside-down cake, though the plastic never wanes. Cleanly extracted malt offers a glimpse of redemption as it leaves behind a plenitude of finely textured bready dextrins which softly caress the palate. Hops exude with sufficient strength to balance the grain with an elegantly spicy bitterness and a juicy dollop of grapefruit pith. Balanced finish of vivid malt and citrus is marred by plastic and medicine/cough syrup. I really admire the approach here, as it clocks in at under 5%. Certainly some promise here, as the malt is clean and the hops juicily flavorsome and perfectly bitter. But in the end, the plastic and medicine make this undrinkable for me. Shucks.

Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - NOV 25, 2013
Pours a clean copper color with a caramel malt aroma. Taste is of clean malt mixed with a slight citrus hops. A lasting minimal bitterness/IBU after the swallow. An easy drinking beer which lacks some complex flavors.
