deyholla (11219) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 9, 2010
On tap. Poured clear rusty amber with a light brown head that slowly dissipated to the edges. Aroma was grain, cereal and hay with a slight pine hop backbone. Flavor was similar, the grain was bit sweeter, but the same pine hop backbone was still present and grew toward the finish.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2014
12oz can, purchased as a single (for $2.50) from Woodstock Wine & Cheese in Michigan. Clear amber color. Thin half finger of off-white head. Toasty malt, some pumpkin like light spice? Decent lace. Kind of a musty taste, moderate bitter, light to moderate sweet, some metallic. Medium body. Smooth, lighter carbonation, dry finish. Mediocre amber ale.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 25, 2008
Canned. Poured medium orange with a short cap of beige head.. quite a lot of dark sediment at the bottom of the can. The aroma picked up candied caramel and an odd, sour medium-skinned fruit (& pineapple).. kinda smelled like it was falling apart. The flavor had sweet caramel and fruits similar to the nose with tart fruit skins surrounding.. never really came together. Light-bodied and unnecessarily tart on the palate.. sticky, ugly finish.

Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2008
Can: The aroma is bready and grassy with some faint caramel. It pours a slightly hazy amber with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with some faint caramel that turns to a light fruitiness in the middle. The finish has some light grassy hops and a faint nuttiness. Light-medium bodied with lively carbonation that is a tad prickly at times. Not a huge amber ale fan, but okay and very sessionable.
