3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured to a hazey copper color leaving little off white sud lines. Malty/ floral with a taste of a citrusy hops amd an aftertaste that lingers
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was a semi-dark orange close to amber color with a finger’s worth of white foamy head that dissipated at a moderate pace. Slight lace.
The aroma had some caramel/toffee malt flowing over some citrusy to floral hoppy portions.
The flavor blended fairly nice between the hops and the malts, pretty nice. Consistent blend in the aftertaste and finish.
The feel was about medium bodied, maybe just a tad underneath. Decent session about it. Carbonation seemed fine and so was the ABV.
Overall, pretty good amber ale worthy of having again, perhaps. unclemike (3170) - Junction City Kansas, Kansas, USA - OCT 19, 2013
bottle thanks to fletchwadd Light amber color,small off white head that lasted for a decent time then faded to a small lace.Malty semi-sweet aroma with a hint of caramel and maybe some fruit.The hops seem nicely done.Pretty good flavor of mild malt then a nice amount of hop flavor,sort of bitter-sweet and mildly fruity.Nice and smooth for the most part and fairly drinkable.Well worth trying if you can get it. thedm (6306) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 31, 2012
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a typically carbonated transparent weak amber colored body. The mild aroma was dirty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of brown malt and hops. A decent one but not one that I would consider drinking again. JPDurden24 (1675) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - JUN 3, 2012
On tap. Dark amber pour. Carmel malts, bitter astertaste. Decent Amber, nothing special.

Rated 3-16-2012. Bottle purchased in December, 2011 at Siciliano’s Market in Grand Rapids, MI. Poured a medium sized very fizzy ivory head that mostly diminished, spotty amounts of lacing, slightly hazy body, fizzy, fast-rising carbonation, and an orange to golden hue. The aroma is malty, floral hops, sweet, and a hint of caramel. The flavor is semi-sweet, malty, floral hops, and has a short dry finish. The mouthfeel is tingly and this is a light-medium bodied Amber Ale. Overall, it is easy to drink and could be a session beer even at 6%ABV as the ABV is well hidden.

Sampled at an esbls tasting. I bought this in Michigan. Thus pours hazy mid brown and has a funky off white head. I smell fruity hs first with rich sweet caramel. Those are also tasted. Some grass, too. This is a sweet, almost sugary beer but i like sweeter beers. BigBeer45 (1557) - Michigan, USA - FEB 14, 2011
label lists 6% alc., so, the alcohol has changed,
this beer has a red and burnt orange pour (with a light haze), gave a one and a half finger of off-white and light tan bubbled head,
effervescence was about medium, I got a little lacing on the glass, there was a good layer of dark sediment in the bottle,
there were aromas of toasted malt, light fruit, and a little citrus hop,
the flavors were toasted malt and faint caramel with a little fruit, citrus and leafy/earthy like hops,
finish has a little hop bitterness and a bit of an off flavor, I do not know what the off flavor is from,
mouth feel is a little less than medium, there seems to be a lot of carbonation on the palate and it gives a carb bite on the tongue,
this is an ok Amber Ale.

Draft. Pours dark amber, thin off-white head, spotty lacing. Nose is crystal malt, spicy citrus hops. Flavours are rich and caramelly, some nice spiciness here, but this doesn’t grab me. Meh. polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - JUL 17, 2008
Bottle. Aroma of citrus hops with some flowers, spice, caramel malt. A murky medium orange amber hue with a large off-white head that mostly diminished and left good lace. High amount of small particles. Flavor is more of an IPA than an amber ale. Some mineral hop tones with some caramel malt up front. I have a feeling that this beer will be much better with some age on it. When those hops subside and the caramel sweetness starts to take over in a year this beer might be very interesting. Palate is medium bodied and soft. Not a bad brew but needs some age to come into character.
