This is a nice red brown color w/ an off white head and some nice sheets of lacing. It’s doesn’t look like anything special but is a good beer regardless. Mild roast character is nicely complimented by an assertive piny bitterness. Medium bodied w/ creamy carbonation, this is a well done amber. This style is often either just blandly malty or just an APA w/ some extra color. This plays the darker grain character off the hops and does so well. nickd717 (4852) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAY 2, 2010
On tap at Flossmoor Station pre-DLD.
Nice reddish-amber appearance with a small whitish head.
Aroma is rough citrusy and earthy hops along with a sweet malty backbone.
Flavor is similar to the aroma. Sweet caramel malt and a nice hop profile. Rough and citrusy, a little resinous.
Very nice mouthfeel, with hop oils and medium body.
Good for the style overall. Above average among the Flossmoor beers. Drinkable. j12601 (13034) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 29, 2010

One of the 7 beers served at the IL. Craft Brewers Guild 5 by 5 Dinner at the Marion St. Cheese Market, Oak Park, IL. Poured a clear, reddish amber with a modest, off white head that diminished quickly to a ring and film, and left some light ribbons of lacing. The aroma was that of sweet fruit, citrus, and a touch of pine. The flavor added to these smooth caramel malt and supportive hop bitterness. A very fine Amber!

Orange-red, beige head. Hoppy spicy, malty, caramel aroma. Taste is light sweetness, spicy pine, caramel. BVery (11240) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 12, 2009
Tap at Flossmoor. Reddish pour. White head. Faint hop nose. Taste was malty, touch of hop, but not a lot of complexity. Ceebs25 (503) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2009
On tap at the brewpub in Flossmoor. This one turned out to be quite a nice surprise. It came poured with a thick fluffy white head, some retention, medium appearing body, and amber red in color. Definitely a very hoppy amber, there was some nice hop variety to the aroma, not so unlike the combination 3 Floyds has perfected just down the road, with tropical citrus fruits and leafy flowers, along with other medium sweet fruits, pale malts, and light caramel. A very pleasant scent. The body of this feel was lightly carbonated and the flavors come across pretty nicely, but this definitely the weakest link in a otherwise excellent beer as I loved the bittersweet, hop-strong flavor profile. Nicely balanced as well, with notes of melon, mixed citrus, leaf, caramel malts, mild sweet fruits, and some other malted grains. This beer definitely capped off a nice trip over to Flossmoor. Will have to make it back there soon. Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2009
On tap at Flossmoor Station. Pours a mostly clear, deep reddish amber colored body with a finger-width, beige, creamy head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Great aroma. Lots of flowery hops, a bit of earth, a light toasty bread, some citrus, fresh grass and yeast, and moderately sweet caramels. Very nice and fresh. Flavor is really nice too, but its lacking a few of the complexities offered in the aroma. Lots of flowery hops again from beginning to end. Balanced caramel malts with lots of fresh grass and a light citrus. A touch of bread comes in before this finishes moderately bitter and dries. Lots of flowery hops in the aftertaste with a light, malty sweetness. Medium body, clean, and smooth. Overall, a damn good red. I wish more were like it. Lots of flowery hops and a nice malt backing. phaleslu (10554) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 1, 2009
Draft at the brewpub. Pours amber with an eggshell head. Notes of floral hops, malt, caramel, grass, and mild spice on the nose. The flavor is bitter from the floral hops and offset well by the earthy notes, spice, maltiness, and caramel. Very good balance. Bitter, with a light-medium body. Very good for the style.
