Amber ales are not exactly my favourite style but this is pretty good overall. Pours a dark, bright burgundy with a thin off white head. The nose is toasty, slight nutty notes, bit of floral and grassy notes. I don't really notice the juniper notes until I read the description but still it is quite subtle. Nice medium full body with light carbonation. Light caramel and fruitcake notes. Overall decent for the style.

Refreshingly bitter for a us amber ale. Hoppy front malty back. Hints of dark fruits. Good one

On tap at Odin brewing. Pours out a crisp amber topped with a sand head. Nose is light grain some bread and a caramel sweetness. Taste is more of the light grain and a touch of caramel.

Aroma is rich sweet malts, caramel, fig, and slight hickory. Taste is a fairly thick chewy chocolate, caramel and molasses. Appearance a clear dark amber with a medium fluffy head that retains very well.

The aroma teases but the body doesn’t quite deliver. Still a good example of an amber ale, currently one of the best in Seattle.

Sweet and malty. Very light on the juniper. The finish is a little metallic but still smooth. Pretty good overall.

Growler from Albertsons. Seeing a wide variety of scores here, and I’ll go with the downside, average at best, with a flat metallic finish. Might be closer to a brown ale than an amber, but that wouldn’t improve any scores....

Yech. This had a bitter and absolutely unappealing taste. Heavy malts and syrup with some burnt notes and berries.
