Bottle. Copper color poured with a quickly dissipating off-white head. Malty aroma with notes of caramel. It is light bodied with some light metallicness in the taste. jsquire (4496) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2004
On tap at the brewpub. Red amber out of the tap with almost no head. Sweet beer with an almost white sugar taste. It is billed as a "Scotch" ale, but I’m glad that RB has it as an amber. Nothing wrong with it but not much going on. PorterPounder (7970) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Miller Park - Brewer-Twins game, MIlwaukee, WI - 12 oz bottle. Light copper pour, decent, creamy off-white head. Not much aroma - a bit of fresh lake water. Some caramel notes. Decent balance of hops and malt. Clean mouthfeel. Average. 1FastSTi (3360) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 6, 2005
This beer pours to a thin tan head atop a dark brown body. The aroma is much like the Maker’s Demise w/o the oak. The flavor is iced tea and light Noble hops. The palate is creamy and medium bodied. Not bad, but nothing special. Ofortuna (322) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 11, 2006
Nice frothy head at first with a deep amber and reddish hue. Aroma of toffee and some nutmeg. Deeper exploration upon the palate reveals a lack of complexity. A little biscuit and dried fruit. Slight bittering character, but again fails to be anything more than mediocre.

bottle fresh from wisconsin 7/12/10. awesome creepy label.
dark coppery pour with a white topper.
it smells of malty caramel, orange, light spice and juniper-like pine.
the flavor is much the same... not as sweet as i expected but certainly very malty.
medium body with a little thick/richness to it. slick, smooth and warming. idk if i want that from an amber?? 6/3/5/3/13/3.0

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity. madvike (3264) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 27, 2012
Bottle - Pours hazy reddish amber with a light tan head. Nose is light spicy wood with a faintly yeasty bread note. Light sweetness. Taste is a bit sharp, with a faint cherry note and toasted bread malt. Woody finish with a bit of milkiness. I swear there’s some heat on the finish. Nice carbonation, and a bit slick. Odd beer, with some flavors that I wouldn’t expect in an amber. Not my thing. mrjaxson (588) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Pretty tame for an amber ale, with none of the bite that can come with the genre. Good lookin’ on the pour with a nice aroma that’s more caramel than spruce, although they’re both there. Somewhat thin on the body, and a taste that’s a little sweet and a little bitter. Solid offering from another little guy bringing good brewing back to Beertown.
