pkbites (1014) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 2, 2015
Tap @ the Ritz Carlton, Buckhead, Georgia. Lovely red pour with beige head that dies too fast. Light nose of caramel, bakery, and cashews. Tastes very much like it smells. Not perfect but quite nice.

Eructoblaster (4549) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2017
Bottle - 12oz. Cloudy amber body with a thin, off-white foamy head. Good malty/hoppy aroma with butterscotch hints. Its malty/hoppy taste carries woody and sweet notes. Ends with a decent bittersweet finish.

BeerdedDave (2086) - Beckley, USA - SEP 14, 2017
deep reddish-brown color; nice bready malt aroma; a very well balanced beer; smooth, bready malt with the perfect amount of bitterness; mild citrusy hops

Draft, takeover at ADT. Clear amber brown with a full off-white head. Nice malt, bread aroma. Smooth malt flavors, bread, light caramel. Nicely. Slanted finish. Solid if mild amber.

Bottle from Total Wine, South Richmond. Pours red with a small beige head. Aroma is caramel malts, light grasses, light leaves. Flavor is nearly identical. Caramel followed by some leafy bitterness and minor grass. Plain but drinkable.

2015 BJCP Category: 19A American Amber Ale

AROMA: Moderately strong hop character (citrus, floral). Some malt sweetness. Noticeable oxidation character. 7/12

APPEARANCE: Beautiful deep clear copper color. Large off-white foam retains and laces well. 3/3

FLAVOR: Moderate malty sweetness with caramel and toffee (to a lesser extent). Firm hop presentation with earthy/citrusy flavors and moderate dry bitterness. Caramel taste emerges briefly on the finish before fading away cleanly. Slight lemon sherry flavor due to oxidation. 13/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Quite smooth and easily drinkable. Feels rather light for 5.6% ABV. 3/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Has what you want in an amber ale - just not enough of it. 6/10

Part of a 4 beer flight at TJ Stone , Washington DC in May 2017. Not a bad beer but not me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jflopsu (1862) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2017
Pours a dark rust orange-amber with white head. A watered down aroma of caramel and malts. A caramel, fruit, and malt aroma with some grain. A grainy and sweet caramel malt aftertaste.

This one poops a very rich almost deep red, but it’s clear and clean with a slightly toasted head. It doesn’t have an overwhelming aroma, but what it does have is a nice even blend of malts. The evenness continues in the taste with its lights bitterness and sweetness. It’s a light bodied beer with a thin but somewhat fizzy body. I’m not a big fan of amber ales, but this is one that I could certainly see myself drinking regularly.
