Aroma is citrus. Pours picture perfect - medium head that rises just over rim of pint glass. Taste is slightly bitter with hints of brown sugar and caramel.

Aroma is a mix of caramel malts and fruit. The flavor is fruit, slightly sweet malts and a mildly tart finish.

Draft at OF. Amber-brown color, thick off white head. Slight to full on Amber malt pungency. Spicy malt aftertaste with a touch of cream. Full of flavor. Medium to full bodied. Rather well done, pretty solid balance between the rich malt and soapy hop crispness. A quality beer, worth a try.

UPDATED: NOV 30, 2013 An exceptional beer. I usually find Amber Ales a bit bland/boring but this is so flavorful and pretty well balanced. Leans to the sweet side. Bit of bitter. extremely delicious. Pretty original.

JPDIPSO (5990) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 1, 2002
This was first marketed as a Ockoberfert Ale. I see they now sell it as an amber export style scotch ale. I do like truth in advertising. Malty, yes. Slightly fruity, yes. Caramel and toffee sweetness, yes. I touch cloying, yes. This is unique as there are german hops used in an ale, but too sweet and not bitter enough for a alt. No style, categorically speaking, but a decent session ale.

heemer77 (5325) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 27, 2005
Dark copper body that is more clear and pretty the picture of the pint glass shows. There are only traces of a head on top. The aroma is darkly roasted walnuts with some bread crust. There is also some old tobacco and a hint of orange peels. The taste has some light grapefruit peels and roasted almonds. There is also some toffee and tobacco. A well made amber.

12 oz bottle. Pours deep amber with a small white head. Aroma is nicely malty, biscuit, a bit doughy, touch of cookie sweetness, caramel and toffee. Flavor is much the same, lots of maltiness, sweet caramel and doughy notes. Finishes a touch hoppy and crisp. Medium slightlyu creamy body and a crisp carbonation. Good for the style.

pours rich copper with a smallish but frothy off white head. Nice aroma of caramel malt. Pleasant malty taste. Semi-sweet finish. Easy drinking. Good!

Drake (13171) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 8, 2016
Keg at Anodyne Coffee House, 8/24/16. Clear reddish copper, large foamy tan head, good retention. Aroma of toasted caramel malt and stone fruit. The taste is caramel malt, jammy strawberries. Thin-medium bodied, simple but drinkable and pleasant.
