On tap at the Brewpub. Dark gold/light amber with a white head. Very ESB-like. Buttery aroma and flavor. Mild hop finish. Smooth with fruity undertones. StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2005
Clear bright orange in color - this ain’t no amber. Muted aroma with faint traces of malt sacks and orange rind. Carbonation bomb recedes to a triumph of bitterness over malts. Some caramel and rye elements. This beer is the very definition of why ambers have a bad name. Acidic, yeast bite aftertaste. DavidP (1748) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 1, 2004
Golden body. Dried apricot heavy sweetness in the aroma. Sweet caramelly flavor with just a hint of stemmy hops. Unoffensive and boring flavor, really only bringing that sweet caramel to the table. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 2, 2003
Clear orange body with small white head. Aroma is mild -- some sweetness and fruit. Taste is medium grassy, some floral, hint of fruit (apricot), medium sweet. Finish is minimally grassy.
