Bottle courtesy of aplusbreaks. Pours copper with a large white head. Smells of sweet malt, citrus, light pepper. tastes of sweet malt, a touch of roses and has a nice full mouthfeel with a touch of sage on the finish. foyle (424) - Wyoming, USA - JUL 21, 2013
Appearance: pours a 2" sudsy off white head which slowly recedes leaving mild lacing. Color is a cloudy amber with some small particles in suspension. Significant carbonation evident.
Aroma: light roasted barley, caramel, grassy and some earthy hop aroma.
Mouthfeel: light, just slightly sticky, crisp, refreshing. Finish is quite dry.
Flavor: toasted white bread, mild caramel, mild hop spice in the finish.
Overall: Very pleasant, very drinkable. Most excellent. kkh369 (4) - - DEC 11, 2015 does not count
this has an interesting, fruity/citrus aroma and a more golden appearance than most amber ales. the taste is nice and fruity, hoppy without being overly bitter, and refreshing. i like this one pretty well. im not a huge pale ale person because lately it seems to be a contest to see how bitter a pale ale can be. but this one is just bitter enough. most hoppy beers are not that refreshing to me, but this one is.

Bottle- Pours a rich amber color with a creamy head that fades to lacing. Mild aroma of roasted malt with some spice and herbs and a bit of sweetness. Has a nice caramel taste up front with a nice bit of citrus. There is a nice bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body, smooth and creamy, very well balanced. Very easy drinker. Excellent take on an amber beer. Well worth checking out. Cybercat (5962) - Georgia, USA - AUG 6, 2012
Pours a beautiful clear, slightly coppery, amber with a fairly thick and fluffy palest tan head. Strong, malty aroma has a sweetish fruit overtone, mainly apple with a hint of pear. Refreshing flavor has equal parts malt and fruit, the latter mostly apple plus some pear and is subtly sweet. There is also a hint of hops. Smooth texture has slightly above average body and good fizz. Let this one lift your spirits.

This is the staple beer around our place. If you like a good amber ale but prefer less hop intensity, this is a good choice, imho. And it seems to offer a middle of the road flavor option....particularly if you’re not in the mood for something really light...or heavy.

Decent 2-finger head. Hazy orange-ish color. Nice lacing down the glass. A little bread and nice orange notes. Simple, bright, and clean. A good amber ale.

Light, crisp, clean, no harsh metalic tastes. Good lace and head. I dunno why this is rated lower than 50. swanmann (776) - Nompton, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 10, 2006
Bottle pours bright amber with foamy, highly carbonated, wheat colored, head.The aroma is lightly sweet and malty, bread, floral hops. Highly carbonated, the bubbles really seperate the flavors. Palate is a little watery, but you can taste that Colorado water. The bottle lacks the depth of the draught. Light bodied, sweet, acidic. Growlers rule for this amber.

Nice looking beer. Cloudy copper in color with a nice off white foamy head. Ale aroma with a citrusy taste and a very good finish. I would say the finish made this beer above average for me.
