nearbeer (5708) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 23, 2014
12 oz. Lightly foggy amber-red with a loose spit and ring of foam that lasts. Aroma is dark cherry, citrus zest, toasted Brazil nut, toasted malt and dry cocoa. Tastes of toasted malt, cocoa, plum and praline. Finish has nice touches of tart blackberry and espresso that swing the pendulum back. Light-medium body is delicately balanced and has a slightly tingly, low-medium carbonation. Pleasantly surprised after several disappointments from this brewer. SSSteve (4006) - - SEP 12, 2010
12oz bottle. clear amber in color under a medium, creamy white head. a bit fruitier in aroma than the "lost dog" with less nutty malt notes. flavor has touches of caramel malt and some bittering hops. nice esters appear in the finish. DTM (870) - Vacaville, California, USA - JUN 30, 2009
Bottle from Nugget in Vacaville. CA. Poured a dark amber color with a good sized white head. Smelled of carmel hops and just a hint of hops. Tasted of sweet carmel malt with a hint of hops. Balanced with the perfect amount of carbonation make this a great beer. bradlyc77 (226) - Sebastopol, California, USA - AUG 23, 2009
Pours a nice amber with orange-reddish hue. Nice maltiness base with caramel, toffee, light bread. Nice hops balance. I think this is a well crafted Amber. unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2011
12oz bottle. Copper color, off-white head. Toasted bread scent, with a touch of butter. Very dry body. Some caramel, some hops. Great lacing. It is a good example of an Amber Ale. Someone did their homework. Seems to be very simple, but just right to style.

22oz bomber, no date from the Bottle Barn. My bottle states 5.75% ABV. Clear copper amber with a small off-white head, fair retention. Some floral and lightly piny hops up front with a nice toasted and caramel malt backbone. Flavor is much the same though the clean caramel seems to turn a little bit earthy here. The finish is semi-dry with bitterness around a 2-3. Moderate carbonation with a light to medium body. As far as ambers go, this is definitely one of the better examples that still holds true to the style, i.e. not too hoppy. rjplumer (1264) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - APR 2, 2011
Pours a deep clear amber color slightly tan head. Has a mild fruity aroma. The taste also starts of with a mild fruity, almost wine like, taste with a touch of bitterness to add character. It finishes dry and clean. This brew is a pleasant surprise and well worth a try. It has a nice balance and doesn’t overpower an any one category. gnoff (11227) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 15, 2012
355 ml bottle at Jernorgets Brygghus, Göteborg. Sampled on July 14, 2012. My bottle marked with 5.7% ABV.beerguy101 (5364) - Newark, California, USA - MAR 31, 2009
Cloudy brown color, small off-white head. Sweet, malty, caramel, toffee scent. SWeet, grainy, malty taste. Medium mouthfeel, medium low bitterness.
Sampled on 3/31/2009. This amber ale pours a dark amber color from a 22oz bottle. Small sized white foamy head, with nice lacing. The aroma is caramel malts and some floral spicy hops. A medium bodied amber. The malts are caramel and sweet. The hops are floral and slightly spicy. Lively carbonation. Interesting beer, its not really sweet like an amber and has a decent hop bite. Very clean tasting. Would be a good session ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Deep copper red with a fizzy white head. Brassy malty butterscotch taste and aroma with an earthy grainy finish.
