House tap at Yardhouse Denver. Clear amber with a decent frothy beige head. Smells pretty good with notes of toffee, caramel, and toast. Taste is also really good, smooth, round, and full flavored with mild sweetness. Notes of predominant toffee, with some accompanying notes of caramel sweetness, sweet grainy malts, toast, and ending on a light note of caramel. Nothing out of the ordinary for an amber, but is an exemplary example of the style.

Bright, shiny copper with a head that settles staunch & creamy, almost cream-colored. Nicely hopped for an amber, there are citrus tones to the aroma with apple, cherry, grape, peach... fruit cocktail, if you will. Flavorful and mid-bodied with robust, sweet grains and mild hops in solidarity. Well-crafted, dangerously drinkable, highly sessionable and utterly satisfying.mikeben (355) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - DEC 3, 2003
I’m not one to normally recommend an Amber, but this is a brew that will please anyone when they simply ask you for "a beer". A wonderful transitional beer to the world of craft brewing.

Not bad but not great. Certainly better then miller, bud and the like. It is a sweet and sour beer that is refreshing. It does taste better as it warms but it is not amazingly good or anything. Just a pleasent drink. ronaldtheriot (1980) - Laplace, Louisiana, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Jumping Cow Amber Ale has a very thick, beige head, a clear, bubbly, amber appearance, and heavy lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of tannic, sweet, brown bread crust, and the taste is of those elements, with pleasant, appropriately bitter hops and even a mildy citric aspect. The mouthfeel is medium and slick, and Jumping Cow Amber Ale finishes semi-dry, easy-drinking, and refreshing. RJT BeaverBrown (245) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 1, 2003
Brown with a hint of red. Zero head to it. More flavor as it sits. Smells yeasty. Malty with very mild bitterness.

Bought this at Trader Joe’s. Cheap 6 pack. Wanted to try something new. Just like 2 buck Chuck, this beer is very palatable and easy to drink. No frills, but pretty solid. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - DEC 20, 2006
Pours amber caramel w/ a medium sized, semi creamy, spattered froth. The froth is very English styled. Aroma of caramel malts and snappy pine. Medium nectar w/ mellow residual effers. A malty brew w/ moderate fruit and a nice mellow hop presence. Also a little hay. The finish is nicely bittered. Overall: A simple brew w/ tasty, balanced flavors. I like it better than Fat Tire.

Bottled. Pours a nice amber with large cream head. Decent smell of hops and barley. The taste was delicious with smooth barley to malt and hops without much bite. Very satisfying feel in the mouth with a smooth finish. Would buy again. jtclockwork (17101) - , New Jersey, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Very smooth, yet robust malty beer. I was very surprised with this one. Rated 4/1/04
