Bottle pours a red amber with a small head. The aroma is malty. The flavor is malty sweet, with a hint of ale sour fruit lingering. The palate is good and rich. Overall, pretty average.

Draft at Greenbush Bar. Pours a rich ruby-amber color with a finger-thick off-white head, very creamy. Aroma of sweet malts, apples, cherries, toast, and hops. Flavor is malty, fruity, and sweet, with notes of caramel, mixed fruit juice, and just a bit of earthy hops. Light-bodied, with average carbonation and a mouthfeel that borders on malty and juicy. Finishes crisp and clean. Definitely sessionable. Easy-to-drink, straightforward beer with a cool story to the name.

Pours bubbly, frothy white head with deep copper body. Decent caramel aroma with a little skunky hop. Flavor is mostly sweet, caramel malt with light dry hop aftertaste. Some plastic. Medium body. Okay stuff.

American ambers tend to either be slightly darker versions of APA or beers that try to pass off lack of hops as maltiness. This is neither of those; it is a legitimately big and malt beer--and I like it. Nose is mile, just a touch fruity but a hint of earth. It’s a bit on the sweetside but that sweetness is expressed in the form of intense, almost exaggerated maltiness. The carbonation is perhaps a touch too strong for its full and slightly sticky texture but that is a small complaint. This is a nice change of pace from typical American offerings.

Amber colored. Aroma of grain and malt. A nice malty, bready amber. Not too sweet not too bitter. Drinkable a god stand by. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[Bottle] Amber colored pour with little head. Aroma is of dusty malts, caramel malts and a light roast. Sticky caramel, brown sugar, crisp hops and a bit of nut in the flavor. Light carbonation. Creamier than their other beers. Nothing crazy in the flavor department, but the texture and body is pleasant.

A good ale, with a decent, drinkable flavor. Didn't have a glass so hard to rate head and cooler very well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
