Hazy orange color with a large beige head. Sweet malty honey aroma. Nice sweet malty flavor with a spicy hops finish. Medium feel. loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - NOV 25, 2003
Hazy amber color with a nice frothey, rocky beige head. The aroma was very much like iced tea...some nice malty sweetnes also. The flavor was more malty sweet with a definite hops bite to ie...slightly earthy and burnt. Soft, medium thick feel. WISEGUY572 (1377) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2003
I have low expectations for an amber. Good copper color. Sweet malt, floral hops, and a slightly bitter finish. Not complex, not great, but very drinkable and with a low alcohol content it makes a good enough session beer. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - SEP 26, 2003
Slightly hazy mahogany color with nice head and great lacing. Aroma is almost non-existant, nothing great. Flavor is malty with a hoppy presence. Finishes slightly buttery with a PNWern hoppiness. Overall this is an average amber with some good qualities that can be easily overlooked. Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 22, 2003
Pours a hazy golden with white head and nice lacing. Citrus and floral hops are prominent in the nose. Hoppy flavor, some fruit, some clove. Organic, but good.

Eh, it was koay, I suppose, not what I expected from Fish Tale. I find this one to be slightly below average for them, it still had that distinct Fish Tale flavor, but nothing really to write home and rave about. TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2003
A restrained aroma. Pours amber brown, nice tan head, carbonation low. Fairly average. Some hops and malt but muted and unflavourful. Not a beer to search for. presario (4916) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 18, 2003
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2005 Second bottle 2005. Found the aroma amazing and the beer malty, foamy, dry and very good for the style.
First Bottle. Very light head. Copper colour. Sweet malt and light hop aroma. Hoppy flavour but a beer that I found hard to get a handle on. I would like to try it on tap. PorterPounder (7967) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2003
Had on tap at the Fishbowl Pub in Olympia. Found this to be subpar for this brewer. Very dissapointed. Nothing exciitng going on - typical light amber color, mild hoppiness, off white head with slight lacing. Tastes a tad bit artificial. papajohn (1250) - San Diego (Mira Mesa), California, USA - JUN 22, 2003
Pours a cloudy light amber color with a very small head. Taste starts sweet changing to an odd apricot flavor and finishing with a lingering dry aftertaste.
