Sampled at Craft beer store (Ithaca night) Reddish pour with aromas of Mild Hop and caramel malt. A little thin for my tastes but it was an easy beer to drink. ElJefe (553) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAR 26, 2007
Growler from the brewery. 2007 version. Light chestnut brown with a moderately thick beige head. Aroma of flowery hops, walnuts, and a slight fruitiness. Pretty hoppy for an Amber, slightly citrusy upfront with pine tar in the finish. Sweet nuttiness throughout, with just a hint of roastiness, though that may be a combination of the nuttiness and the pine playing tricks on me. muzzlehatch (4975) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - APR 28, 2004
12 oz bottle. Medium copper, quite clear; massive forever-lasting head...gushing, in fact (infection? uh oh). Light grapefruity aroma with a bit of chewy woody malt. Odd but interesting flavor -- cherry cola comes to mind, and a bit of oakiness, grapefruit near the end. Medium body, too sweet and odd overall...doesn’t really work though I give it points for creativity. DYCSoccer17 (3714) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 6, 2004
Aroma is vile. Smells like vomit. Pours a cloudy copper/amber with a huge off-white head. Watery with sweetness in the middle. Watery finish with puke aftertaste. This is hideous. MaBeer1972 (2206) - Reno, Nevada, USA - NOV 24, 2003
The appearance is somewhat pale amber and isn't that impressive. The aroma is neutral, but slightly fruity. The flavor is almost of grapefruits, with a smack of hoppiness. The finish is on the bitter side. Admirable.

Starts off with a fruity, citrusy sweet aroma. The appearance is dark orange with a good sized white head - good lacing. Has a hoppy - citrusy bite to it - more akin to a California PA than an upstate NY amber. HInts of caramel mellow out the hoppines a bit - but still a litle too hoppy for an amber. Palate is a bit tonque numbing. Better than other Ithacas I have tried thus far though. jgb9348 (6586) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 3, 2003
Fairly dark amber colour with a perfect sized light tan head - spot on for the style! Aroma consists of hop pellets, mushrooms and a bit of yeast - ODD! Medium-bodied; Hoppy taste with some astringent characteristics and a strong malt background. Aftertaste shows almost nothing but a mild hop and malt taste. Overall, about average for the style. Not great, nor bad! I bought this twelve ounce bottle from Beers of the World in Rochester, New York and sampled it on 2-October-2003. Libeerian (209) - Garner, North Carolina, USA - AUG 26, 2003
This amber's got a hop/caramel aroma. The flavor is nicely balanced with hop flavor and malt, the bitterness isn't severe. Very pleasant. andy609 (143) - Auburndale, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 6, 2003
Aroma remeniscent of an English Pale Ale. Big head that shrinks to nothing quickly with minimal lacing. Body color is just as adverstised, amber. A nice hoppy beer upfront with the malts coming through in the long finish.
