Pours two fingers of head on a hazy medium straw colored body.
The aroma is tropical fruit forward (mango and pineapple) with some pine and grapefruit in the background.
The taste is nicely balanced. Some pineapple sweetness, a bite of lemon bitterness in the middle and finishes on a little honey sweet note.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It has great balance in both smell and flavor.
Editor’s Note: Non-organic version of Organic Amber Ale].
Slighly above average amber

Aroma of baked bread and spices. Nutty and malted barley. Nice stuff. Flavor is prickly and flat at the same time...simple malt, bread, toffee, spice and citrus. hershiser2 (3591) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JUL 7, 2017
Bottle from Total Wine, South Richmond. Pours deep amber with a small off-white head. Lots of caramel in the nose - neither pleasant nor unpleasant. Flavor is caramel, brown leaves, light chocolate-coffee hints. "...And you’re boring, and you’re totally ordinary, and you know it." obguthr (6592) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 5, 2016

Nothing really stood out to me. It would probably be better enjoyed at room temperature. sloshgator (741) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Fish Tale Vicious Circle Amber Ale is a decent brew that falls on the red ale side. Deep red pour with a light tan head. Light aroma of caramel. Taste is also caramel and not much else. Vicious Circle is pairs well with foods and won’t overpower. Sirmixsomewhat (266) - Paoli, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 30, 2016
This beer isn't bad, but I can't imagine I'll remember much else about it other than a "I drank this once" kind of experience. It's s nice color and smells fine, but its smooth taste is about all it has that stands out. Solid beer, not great. IslandHaole (1291) - Misawa, JAPAN - APR 14, 2016
Dark amber, clear, good beige head, nice looking brew in the glass. Lightly roasted malt, earthy, hints of toffee. Nutty lightly sweet malts, traces of Milk Chocolate, Caramel ,Allspice & mineral salts, like a Candy Apple, has a mild bitter follow. Certainly nothing to get excited over, I’m not a huge Amber Ale fan but this is a decent beer.
