5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Bottle:   Fiery amber, lively carbonation, moderate to large foamy off-white head, nice lacing.   Soft sweet malt aroma, a little biscuit and straw/hay.   Rather malty on the tongue.   Very nice, sweet, a little citrus aspect, slight funk, maybe a bit of soil.   This is a damn fine Amber Ale!   Clean, with only a slight cereal like aspect on the backside.   Body and mouthfeel are quite good.   Very smooth, easy to drink, not heavy, with a body and mouthfeel that is quite viscous.   Somewhat finishes too early, but has a long lingering malt sweetness that sticks to the tongue.   What I like about this is that its not that earthy/soily like most ambers, has good body, and isn’t at all thin.   Thanks Trey for this lovely Amber Ale! bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2011
(22oz bottle, courtesy of Mora2000) Pours a clear orange body with medium off-white head. Aroma of DEET and caramel. Flavor of pine, grass, roasted malt, caramel, and pesticide. Cavie (4718) - Arlington, Texas, USA - SEP 9, 2011
Bottle courtesy Mora2000. Pours a slightly hazy reddish orange color with a ring of white head. Aroma is malty and hoppy, with an odd hop smell. Smells a bit dry but that odd nose over-powers a lot. Flavor is hoppy and dry, malty sweet flavors and trees. Sappy finish. The strange odor is not in the flavor, which works in it’s favor. jb (3255) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 20, 2011

12 July 2011, bottle. med red amber colour, clear, steady bubbles, foamy tan head. surprisingly a lot of sweet raisin and alcohol on the nose for a 5% beer. med/full body and slightly fizzy. nutty red ale, dry grassy hop bitterness, and some faint bitter raisin flavours. nice enough. hopdog (12584) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 13, 2011
22oz bottle. Pored a deep amberish orange color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of some earthiness, floral, and citrus. Tastes of the same with some toasted caramel and grains. DiarmaidBHK (4916) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2011
has a bit of maltiness on the nose. Pours an amberish brown with a light head. The taste is somewhat malty but doesn’t linger. joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JAN 25, 2011
medium red with medium white head. nose of low crystal malt and some floral hops. high carbonation for the style. medium to firm bitterness before low crystal malt presence before some floral hops with a touch of english malt character. low residual sweetness making the beer very drinkable. overall this is an irish red ale, no real similarities to a west coast amber, but it’s a nice version deyholla (11609) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 15, 2010
Bottle thanks to Brian, thanks! Pours a clear amber red with a thin white head that lasts throughout the beer and laces. Aroma has notes of sweet grains, cereal and a bit of grassy hops. Taste starts with sweet grains, cereal and hay with a bit of pine and grassy hops in the finish.
