Its call is intoxicating. An aroma that beckons you to pull up a stool and linger over its toasted malt character. Next, a deep kiss of liquid lust that will caress your tongue, thanks to an array of toasty Pale, Crystal (30 and 75), what, Carapils and roasted barley malts balanced by the subtle bite of Willamette and Fuggle hops. It’s a brew that will seduce your heart, mind and palette.

2015 BJCP Category: 19A American Amber Ale

AROMA: Sweet confectionery-like malt presence (caramel, toffee). Slight lemon sherry presence (oxidation). Minor earthy hop character. 8/12

APPEARANCE: Deep mahogany brown/almost magenta. Hazy, no visible CO2. Small off-white head mostly dissipates. 1/3

FLAVOR: Moderate caramel malt flavor throughout (especially up front). Sweet, but far from cloying. Moderate earthy hop presence and bitterness; enough to offer balance. Some lemon sherry/cardboard presence lurks in the background. Though it’s more to spec than not, the palette is too mild and oxidized to be appreciated. 11/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium body with medium-low carbonation. Quite smooth and comfortable. No residual sweetness. Plenty of flavor and drinkability for 5% ABV. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: There’s probably a good recipe to this beer, but the finished product doesn’t do it justice. What should be a classic example is just meh. 5/10

Cool bottle. Read pour, thin white head. Aroma of malts. Flavor is similar. Simple, malts, caramel. It’s sweet. Decent.

12 oz stubby bottle at home. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have light toasted malts, caramel, floral, grass, mostly just a regular boring amber, I won’t revisit this.

Sample at KC Beerfest 2016. Comes a dark amber with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and fruit. Taste is malt, caramel, dark fruit, and some grass. Just average.

Enjoyed the maltiness and the lower hops bitterness. Not much aroma. Clear in appearance ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a strongly carbonated semi-transparent golden cola brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The weak aroma was malty. The semi-thick mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish with a strong malty aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of Vienna malt strong malt mild hops and dough. An OK brew just nothing special.

Deep Amber color with a roasted malt, bakery aroma. Complex, roasted malt flavors that is very easy to drink. Great balance while avoiding the metallic or buttery flavors I pick up from many ambers. Great food pairing beer with a burger or steak or to simply drink on its own.
