12 oz. bottle, from trade at the Flossmoor RateBeer event. Geez., I think this is only my second new state this year, grumble, grumble. Well, to the beer: Nice looking pour, a burnished brass under a disappearing head, but a touch light for its style, settles out with very few bubbles. Nice ale smell, but with a touch of camphor. Taste is noce malts, a hint somewhere of cola, and a very slight ale fruitiness. Hops are indisitinct. I did get this in a "white elephant trad," and there’s no date, so it may be aged. Enjoyable, but mostly average. hotstuff (5281) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 17, 2006
Bottle. Poured a small fizzy off-white head that mostly diiminished, sparse lacing, transparent, and an orange hue with a gold tint. Mildly hoppy, caramel, malt, fruity, and sweet and ditto for the flavor. Mouthfeel was tingly. Light-medium body. Nothing real special about this one. Just so-so IMO.

This poured a very pale amber body with lazy bubbling and a slender white head. It’s got a fruity nose, berries & cherries, along with some light caramel scents. The taste is fruity as well, the malts become grainy, and a honey sweetness is added. Crisp, berry finish with the lightest touch of bitterness at the very end.

This amber ale pours a light orange color from a 12oz bottle. Medium to small sized white foamy head. Aroma is slightly malty, caramel, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied amber ale. Malts are caramel, fruity and sweet. Hops are slightly bitter. Kind of a typical amber ale, it is kind of sweet, mild tasting and a touch watery. Besides that… Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. SHIG (4965) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAY 17, 2006
Orange amber beer with white head. The aroma was a sweet odor of malt. Sour at first to the tongue but finishes with a nice malt finish. TheOrange (479) - Kent, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2006
Orange-ush amber, clear body.. THe head was a light foamy thing that disipated quickly. The aroma definiatly has the carmalized malt present, there is also a sweet fuity hint there. The flavor is pretty heavy, somewhat syrupy. The marmalized malrs are not as present in the flavor as in the aroma. This beer has a lot of character, and a clean finish.

Copper color, negligable head. Light malty nose...some toasty and bread. Mellow malty flavor. Light/thin body. Sligh suggestion of hops in the finish and a slight touch of fruitiness. beer is close to swill quality daboskabouter (1469) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2006
Shiny auburn colour with a solid off-white head. The nose is slightly citrusy with a little fruit and a hint of hops to come. The hops don’t follow into the body, instead, the body is fairly sweet with a candyish slightly phenolic character. Not enough bitterness to be redeemed.
