COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bright golden color, well rounded flavor and exceptional drinkability characterize this very refreshing ale. A delicate balance between pale malts and Hallertauer hops creates a very palatable, light, fruity ale. A great entry level beer for newcomers to fine hand-crafted ales.

Draft at the MBC taphouse. Has a good amber color. A mild but pleasant "beery" smell to it. A fine example of what's basically a mild style.

This brew poured a quick dissolving head. There was no lacing on the sides of my glass. There was no carbonation seen rising to the top. It had a fruity aroma along with a bitter taste.

Pours out to a very attractive amber in the glass. Looks to be filtered as it is quite clear. Aroma is that of bread dough and light yeast. The taste is that of malt with a hint of fruit thrown in for good measure. Not as flavorful as Bell's Amber, but its may be more drinkable. An easy session amber if there ever was one.

Light hazy bright orange appearance, I guess kind of like a sunset. The aroma was fresh, sweet malt. Light choclatey note in the body, oily with nice hops coming through as fruity and slightly roasty. Finishes with a medium length. A rather nice vienna, altough I think Robertus is the standout but not really comparable.

This is a very drinkable amber, good if youre going to have quite a few sitting around and shooting the breeze. Pleasant nuttinees.

Sunset amber is a perfect description of this beers color. Nose is decent with some malt, caramel and fruity hints. Taste gets a thumbs up from me. It finished with just a little bit of sweetness, but its easy to drink a few of these.

hennes (934) - Fountain, Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2002
Decent hop presence, actually, but not enough malt for my taste - more of a dark colored pils than a vienna, perhaps, if it werent also so sweet.

caramel malt aroma, thin. I gave this one away
