Pours clear amber with a one finger beige head. The nose is malty caramel malt with some faint hops. The taste is caramel, light toffee and a mellow hop finish that cleans up the sweetness. Medium mouthfeel. Nothing spectacular, but not a bad beer. radagast83 (8624) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - OCT 14, 2010
12 oz. bottle. Poured a amber color, medium sized white head. Aroma was toasted malts, malty caramel. Flavor is largely the same, malty, caramel. This one was decent, though relatively plain. heemer77 (5361) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 24, 2011
Bottled from Costco. Deep copper red body with a long lasting off white head. The nose is nutty with walnuts and some sweet caramel. There is also some leather. The taste has lots of walnuts along with a little bit of toffee. There is also some musty leather with a salty finish. This is a decent amber. 5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Bottle:   Copper hued amber, fairly dark, moderate off-white head, spotty lacing.   Malty nose,
slight breadiness.   Much the same on the tongue.   Decent malt backbone, but without a little bit more of
a hop bitterness its a little lopsided.   Comes across as a bit mealy as well.   Moderate body and
mouthfeel.   Needs more sweetness with the existing malts, plus a little bit more of a citrus hop aspect, and
then you’d have something.   Not bad, but just not memorable enough.   Pretty much what I expected for
this one. rayOfBeer (680) - El Cerrito, California, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Bottle: amber with medium off-white head and nose bisquit, malt and floral hops. Flavor is malt with light roasted grain, bisquit, and light citrus hoppiness. Palate is full creamy malt, mildly sweet with a punch of hop bitterness at the end. Overall, I liked it but a little too much hops and bitter for my amber tastes.

355ml bottle pours amber in color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel and grass. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with some grassy hop bitterness. The best of the Kirkland series that I have tried, but not by much. Nothing special and not recommended. koppertone (63) - Alberta, CANADA - JUN 21, 2013
Got this in a giant costco multipack. Pours looking like watered down coke, minimal head. Smells of butter, caramel and a bit of metal. Tastes of caramel, malt and a touch of hops. Was a little bit sweeter than I was expecting but in a good way. All in all not bad considering the price. Better than some other mass produced beers that are more expensive. maxwelldeux (4433) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle from the local Costco. Pours a clear darker amber color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is malt-dominant, with some toasty caramel in there. Taste is toasty and slightly bitter, which surprised me, and almost no residual sweetness. Iphonephan (7476) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - JUL 26, 2014
From a 12 oz bottle. Pours a clear amber with an off white head. Malty nose. Nutty flavor. Clean finish.
