Pours a murky amber brown with a thin white head. Aroma of malt and muted hops. Taste is bitter pine with a lot of malt. Not much going on here scarletfire65 (1507) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2016
Bottle at the hotel, Bethlehem PA Guardian Life opening. Amber pour with a creamy head. Aroma of toasty crystal malt, grapefruit, resin, leaves, dirt. Creamy mouthfeel. Tannic tea leaves, malt, earthy wet hops, warm yeast, spicy rye that shows white pepper notes, pumpernickel bread. Tasty. Ernest (7817) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium to dark amber. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (toasted grain/seeds/nuts), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, resin), with a note of black tea. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Rather one-dimensional and simple and a tad harsh in the mouth, but overall not too bad. ryanscourt (1531) - Latrobe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Troegs really made the American Amber great for me. Slightly metallic malt and dank hop finish. Just ok. Beerdedone (3452) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2015
Bottle. Pours amber brown with a nice off-white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus, and had a hint of rye. Flavor of toasted malts, caramel, grains and some spicy rye notes.

On draught at The Pour House in Mountainhome, PA. Arrived to the table a clear reddish amber with a thin linen white head that faded to a film after the second sip and left moderate lace. Pleasant aroma of mild citrus with notes of caramel and malt. The flavor is malt followed by mild hops bitterness with a bit of citrus pith. Medium bodied. bubbleflubber (2235) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Pours a nice brick-amber into the glass with a fully diminished fizzy head that leaves trace to no lacing of which to speak. The nose is almost of an oaked bourbon barrel with maltiness abounding. Flavors are of semi-dry caramel malt, light toast, a bit of cracker, a hint of dark fruits, spent grains and a finish of woody oak. The mouthfeel is a touch hollow, with a medium body and semi-active carbonation. Certainly not bad whatsoever, just lacking a bit of substance to the palate. ryanhunter_4 (334) - Strathmore, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 5, 2015
12 oz bottle poured at my grandparent’s place in Carlisle, PA. Pours an amber color with a thin white head that dies quickly. Smells like malt or hops. Taste is light hops with a malty finish. Drinkable. klk343 (163) - - JUN 20, 2015
Just ok. A little thick with a malt after v taste. Metal flavor. An after taste that sticks around. can8ianben (1577) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2015
Tasty amber ale that is slightly sweet and slightly spicy. Well done, but nothing there that makes me stand up and say wow. Solid.
