cubs (10714) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a clear, deep red appearance with a light brown head. A touch fruity, burnt caramel malty, somewhat herbal/piney hoppy, slightly spicy, albeit uninspired aroma. Metallic, burnt malty, bitter herbal hoppy, tangy flavor. Too much metal.

Cloudy red amber with a tiny off white head. Aroma had roasted malt, caramel and hints of hops. Flavour had roasted malt, caramel, dark fruits and vague hops. Finished somewhat dry and slightly bitter.

12 ounce bottle .. . i have an aversion to ambers, but this was solid .. . malty sweetness is on point, very little hop bitterness .. mouth is mild but not scared .. a pretty boring beer but a solid amber .. . . The hero is commonly the simplest and obscurest of men.

Idiosynkrasie (7966) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - APR 26, 2015
355ml bottle. Clear, darkest copper colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Caramel malty aroma. Taste is caramel malty, hints of peach ice tea. Absolutely monotonous.

Ernest (7817) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark amber. Aroma is moderately malty (caramel, toasted grain, malt syrup), lightly hoppy (apricot), with a note of vegetables (yellow squash, etc.). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation. A syrupy, raw, vegetal, clumsy affair. Sad.

BlackHaddock (7674) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2016
12oz bottle on my daughters patio on 21st May 2016, into a Corsendonk tulip glass. Dark mahogany body, off-white wisp and collar. Malty blend with semi-sweet molasses ruling the nose and taste. Decent, but a bit ’one dimensional’.

3.1
Strykzone (7658) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 17, 2011
A dark brown, almost black pour with a late forming light tan thick head. The aroma is a bit swampy and funky, even a bit smoky. It also has some pleasant malt. Flavor is grassy and funky. There is some light fruit and in general this beer is sour. Actually, it is the closest to a sour style as any Amber Ale I have had. Certainly not what I expected but it was fun.

3.3
wlajwl (7065) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Aroma is yeast, caramel malts and a hint of earthiness. The flavor is caramel malts, mild sweetness and a smooth finish.

2.9
ajnepple (7059) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 14, 2014
12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s. Amber reddish and clear appearance with an average light tan head. Mild aroma of caramel, toffee and light earthy hops. Similar flavor, medium sweetness and light bitterness. Average body, creamy and smooth with soft carbonation, easy to drink. Pretty simple, straight forward amber ale.
