A - Pours a fairly clear red color with a touch of brown mixed in and a finger of frothy tan-brown head. The head fades down at a normal pace leaving behind some lace spots in the process.
S - Sweet rich lightly toasted caramel malts with a bit of citrus hops alongside. There is a touch of bread as well in the background.
T - Starts off with rich sweet lightly toasted caramel malts that have a touch of a syrupy element to them. There is a bit of orange and grapefruit hops alongside with just a hint of bitterness. Through the middle, the syrupy flavor starts to mellow out a bit and a bit more orange from the hops comes through. The finish is a mix of sweet caramel malts and a bit of citrus hop and bitterness.
M - A bit less than medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth with a sweet finish.
D - Very drinkable. Could have used either a touch more body or a bit less syrupy feeling upfront. Could have used a touch more hop as well. ben4321 (6665) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - SEP 7, 2011

Aroma: The nose is slightly sweet, some caramel and a little citrus
Appearance: It pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a thin head
Flavor: The taste is medium sweet with mostly caramel malt flavors
Palate: The body is falrly light (leaning toward medium) and the mouthfeel is clean
Overall, this was a decent brew. Drinkable, but unremarkable, this is a solid, caramel malt dominated, amber ale.
I’m not a huge fan of this brew. Has nice foam quality. The brew is O.K... Its not real hoppy so I’d say it’s an easy beer to drink. Ungstrup (38215) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 22, 2010
Draft. An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has light notes of hops, citrus, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of vegetables, straw, and hops - flawed. The finish is dry and bitter. nickd717 (4818) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 19, 2010
On tap at the brewpub.
Pours a clear deep medium amber color with a well-formed off-white head.
Aroma is fairly typical for the style: caramel malt and hops. The hops are slightly earthy with a noticeable cannabis presence.
Like many of HMB’s hoppier beers, the wacky tobacky is a substantial flavor note here. Sweet caramel malt balances earthy, resinous, and weedy hops.
Medium-bodied, maybe a little on the light side, with average carbonation.
A respectable low ABV amber ale overall. Not amazing, but drinkable.
