[Tap] Darker amber pour with good head and good lacing as well. Caramel, molasses and toasted aromas. The taste is of sticky caramel, wood chips, peat and light floral hops. Not getting much smoke here. Good balance, and one of the few enjoyable beers for me in this style. I would buy this again. wedgie9 (2703) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Tasted on draft at Hinterland. Pours clear amber with a medium white head that leaves decent lace. Nose is fairly simple with some bread malt and honey. Flavor is more of the same with honey up front and moving to lightly toasted malt a very light bitterness. Body is medium with active carbonation and a medium bitter honey finish. ryanfolty (2606) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - DEC 10, 2011
Date: December 10, 2011 Mode: Bottle Source: BVery Description: Light brown/amber pour with minimal head that went away immediately, mild aroma of hops and caramel, taste was similar but a funky aftertaste that did not sit well with me. BDR (2535) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 29, 2007
On tap at the brewery. Faint hops on the nose of this amber beer. Very grainy taste with a clean finish. arkurzynski (2463) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Heidel House Brewfest. Reddish amber in color. Aroma is light, generic hops and sweet toasted malt and caramel. Flavor is a slightly grainy toasted malt, light caramel that gives way to a moderate herbal-type hop bitterness that lingers.

UPDATED: MAY 15, 2011 On tap at the Green Bay Brewpub. I normally don’t bother with ambers, but I needed another 8oz sample, so I went with it. Amber brown with a creamy beige head. Malty caramel nose with a touch of hops coming through. Malty caramel flavors that are followed by citrus, apples, and floral hop notes. The hops are fresh and strong for an amber, lingering long in the finish. A tasty and drinkable hopped up amber. 7/3/8/3/15

This brew had a nice, deep amber colour. It had a soft caramel undertone with a malted mouthfeel. Very light as far as abv goes, but a nice touch of hops in the finish. GAManiac (1946) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 26, 2009
On tap at The Seasons in Appleton.
Pours a deep, clear amber with a small off-white head that recedes to a ring and leaves only a hint of lacing. The aroma is mostly sweet caramel malts with some faint hops and other grains. The taste doesn’t stray far from the aroma with the light caramel malts dominating. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with good carbonation. A drinkable but fairly basic amber. brewblackhole (1588) - Muskego, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 3, 2010
Aroma was mostly a caramel sauce malt,not a lot of hops like you get in most American ambers lately, flavor again is that caramelly maltingwith a slight background of grainey hops,very different animal then one would expect from this style Juelze (1146) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 6, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2008 This one surprised me. Appearance is a ruddy color with nice amounts of off white lacing. Aroma is nice notes of caramel, some moderate hop fruitiness, and some slight spice. Taste is much the same with some nice fruitiness and caramel intertwined. This is probably one of the best amber ales I have had in a long time.
