12 ounce bottle from the fall mixed packed. Pours a clear dark amber, maple syrup like, with a medium sized frothy tan head. Decent head retention. Faint aroma of toffee and citrus. The taste is citrus hops, nutty notes a bit of toffee. Medium bodied, very slight lingering bitterness. jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - OCT 21, 2013

Bottle. Pours copper with minimal off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, mild hopcitrus, mild earthiness.. Tastes earthy and malty, with mild notes of nuts, hops, and citrus.. onceblind (9707) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 16, 2013
Dark non-transparent nutty amber with a thin beige head. Nose is biscuity and toasty with a kiss of crystal malt, kinda like a vienna. Flavor is slightly overcarbonated with a mild body and little nuance. Lots of toasted english muffin mixed with a dash of earthiness and perhaps a bit of peat, balanced with non-bitter earthy grassy hops that don’t really bring a lot of flavor. Very dry and too balanced and "middle" for it’s own good.

Trade with Aurelius - thanks! Pours a dark copper with a thin but long lasting off-white head. Aroma has a hint of spruce and some floral notes. Flavor is smooth drinking with some nutty accents, a touch of citrus bitterness and some caramel sweetness. Thick enough mouthfeel. Good session material.

Bottle before the phils game, brown shit pour, cream head. Notes are real bland, malt, hops, and light choc. Not as awful as most magics but how much can you do with an amber. wlajwl (6815) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 1, 2013
Aroma is malts, mild dark fruit and earthy and sweet notes. The flavor is malts, citrus, fruit, a small hint of hop resin and a mild/medium bitter/dryish finish. dmac (6267) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 4, 2013
12oz bottle shared by jtclockmaker at jcwatts. Poured a thiner bodied chestnut brown with a smaller dark beige foamy head. Aroma of chocolate, roast, some bread and a touch of acididty for some reason. Lighter bodied with fizzy carbonation. Flavor of chocoalte, roast, grains and fruit skins along with some toast and a hint of cola. Not bad but nothing to search out. dwyerpg (6188) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Color is more brown than red, the aroma has some sweet toffee. This is a pretty good amber. Not very heavy, but the right balance of sweetness, caramel and some hops. Overall, I quite like this, especially for the style.
