This draft brew from the brewery in NYC poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized bubbles that left behind a transparent light red brown colored body with no visible carbonation and a good lacing. The aroma was a simple mild malt hop one and the mouth feel was very mildly tingly somewhat flat with a slight red hop flavor. 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 4, 2005
burnt orange amberish color. kind of had a malty nutty aroma to it. kind of a blandish taste that shows some carmel and brown sugar in it, but the beer is not watery and light, it is full. decent brew, i can dig it. Stew41 (2025) - Phuket, THAILAND - JUN 2, 2005
Nice beer. Clear toffee brown in the glass. Roasted light stout nose. Medium weight body, more attractive toffee and roast. Finishes reasonably sharp and just a touch dilute on the finish. JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2005
Copper-coloured beer with a creamy white head. Sweet malty aroma, faint caramel, toast, sweet candyish finish. Could use some more hops in here to balance the sweetness that tends to get cloying. rickgordon (3878) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2005
Draught at the Empire State location.
Cloudy darki red-ish. Earthy nose, little roasty. Cocoa powder notes. Earthy roast malt in flavour along with toffee and caramel. American hops makes the difference, from what would have been a boring beer. Nice hop bitterness.

Served in 5oz. sampler glass. Very grainy and slightly smoky aroma similar to an irish ale. Definite munich malt in the nose. Brilliant red color and sheet lacing on the glass. Flavors of toffee, smoke, and grains. Overall a good irish red ale, recommended. Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2005
(On tap) Pronounced darkish brown colour, nice slightly burned malt character and a good hoppiness (which turns out to be a house characteristica). Very typical fruity/flowery notes. More akin to a Brown Ale I’d say. 5,5% ABV MrBeer (276) - Erie, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 15, 2005
Dark reddish apperance to it. Had a nice sweet aroma with pretty decent flavor. boto (2211) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - FEB 25, 2005
Draught @ Times Square location: This one pours a clear copper color. There wasn’t too much head to it at all. There was a slight roasty aroma to it. The taste was somewhat roasty with some malt sweetness, but there was some mild hops balancing the sweetness. Definitely nothing spectacular, but it is just a decent amber ale.

Average Amber ale. Good red color with modest head. Hoppy yet balanced nicely with crystal malts. Reminded me a bit like boont amber but this one had less body. Pretty good overall though.
