A creamy head which lasts on a dark amber ale. Smooth and well balanced without being over hopped. Senseable in flavor and finish. Absolutly delicious. Darkover (1542) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 10, 2003
Dark amber with a beige head. Aroma of malt and a little citrus hops. Flavor of malt and alot of hops. Finish is dry and hoppy. wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 12, 2004
Reddish brown with a medium off-white head. Nice lacing. Malty and hoppy aroma, almost even has rasperry odor. This is a nice beer. Festive and warming, it has good malt flavors that are well balanced with a nice hoppy bitter finish. Grapefruit and pine in aftertaste. Very drinkable. rudolf (2360) - Buffalo, New York, USA - APR 22, 2005
Reddish gold, thin head. Herbal sugar cookie nose - tea, toasty malt. Flavor has some caramel or maple, herbal hops, tangy fruit. Some alcohol in the finish. Nice! cfranz (261) - Acton, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 6, 2004
Scarlet red in colour, smooth palate. Detected some sweet fruit flavors, but was unable to pinpoint them - apricot maybe? Overall a very nice beer.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2006 Very hoppy aroma with strong malt also-surprisingly creamy, thick bodied malt flavor with a nice lingering hop bitterness-very solid, well rounded ale-found it for 5.99/6pk -definitely a good deal jayme9874 (756) - Hamburg, New York, USA - DEC 12, 2003
Deep amber, average head and lace. Nice malty nose with hints of caramel, fruit and spicy hops. Almost medium bodied, soft feel, lots of tasty malt with nuances of caramel, smooth, the perfect amount of spicy (maybe a real spice), bitter and citrusy hopping to make for excellent balance. Dryish finish, touch of yeast. Ambers arent the most exciting but this is tasty, could drink many in a night i think. Could be a smidge thicker but this is worth a shot.

Sweet fruity nose. Caramel and burnt sugar. Hint of maple. Good malt character with fruity sweet hops. Medium amber clear with thin off-white lacing head. Medium bodied with smooth medium carbonation. Starts sweet with caramel and toasted sugar. Fruity notes throughout with citrus oily hops bitter finish. Smoooth pale ale, this is. Great bitter but not harsh, and the finish is a bit watery. Dry bitter after. wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 22, 2005
Poured reddish amber with a nice tan head. Very nice head retention. Smell had cranberry, brown sugar, berry and caramel. Caramel and courant are effective in the taste. A bit unbalanced at times but tasty. Solid brew but I have had better Amber Ales. Hazmatt (363) - Virginia, USA - DEC 14, 2005
Bottle. Copper/amber color. Small head. Medium body. Slight fruit taste, fairly malty but balanced brew.
