Can from VE. Nose sweet malty caramel, touch of red berry, very attractive. Pour clear, lazy copper with a dense sudsy beige head. Taste light-medium bitter with light graininess and moderate caramel, subtle grass and mild toast, very British overall. Spritz of lemony citrus in the background, soft wheat closer to the front, malty and biscuity with a little hint of roast to round. There really is good complexity here, despite the simple forum, and enough fresh (well, decade-old) American accents atop a classic UK base to keep things interesting. Medium body, smooth and mildly crisp, clean and balanced, nicely repeatable. Bravo. [2017.09.07: 3.6] EBROVIAK (41) - - JUL 3, 2017
From a guy who usually drinks heavier stuff this is a great summer beer. Flavor is complex and changes throughout from light ale to almost Belgian fruity. If you’re like me and want a lighter summer beer, this is worth a try

12oz can pours out a copper color topped with a sand head. Nose is biscuit malts some toffee sweetness. Taste is more of the malty notes and a nice sweetness. fluffy (2472) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 8, 2016
I'm not a big fan of hoppy amber ales, so this one isn't doing much for me. But it's decent all the same.

Amber pour from a can big off white head. Biscuit aroma. Distinct Amber al flavors, biscuitty malt with a nice, but subtle hop character doe balance (mild bittering and hints of pine). Enjoyable.

12 oz. Can thanks to Matt B! Canned 2/10/2016. Clear copper color, thin head. Aroma is toffee, biscuit, mild weak citrus hops. No surprise with the flavor. Just as the aroma tells me. Lighter body, weak bitterness to balance the toffee. Ok, just an Amber ale jandd1983 (4446) - Wentzville, Missouri, USA - DEC 6, 2015
Can. It poured a hazy copper color with a tan head. The aroma was of malts, caramel, herbs and grassy hops. The taste was similar to the aroma with some grainy malts, grass, hay, citrus and some bitterness. Nice. Panzuriel (2324) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - OCT 22, 2015
12 oz can purchased as part of a six at the Meijer in Westerville. Jackie O’s Firefly Amber pours a mostly clear amber with a full head of white bubbles. Nose is a good deal of caramelized malts, roasted cereal and grain. Taste is a little more balanced than the aroma would lead one to believe. Nicely roasted malts play nicely with floral hops. Body is medium. a decent, if slightly unusual amber ale. slowrunner77 (12471) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 13, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2015 I like the differences in this toasty and biscuit amber, but at the end of the day, it still doesn’t stand out. OK, but a one timer.
