I believe I had this on tap at an Old Chicago. Light flavor with a hint of sweet maltiness and a definite metallic tinge. Unimpressed. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2006
12oz bottle. Clear copper color with nice tan head and good lacing. This beer creates the same flavor as aroma. There’s sweet caramel malts, a bit of biscuit, dryer tasting roasted malts and some floral to spicy hops. Tasty brew. SudsMcDuff (8429) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAR 9, 2010
You see a lot, Doctor. But are you strong enough to point that high-powered perception at yourself? What about it? Why don’t you - why don’t you look at yourself and write down what you see? Or maybe you’re afraid to. radagast83 (8069) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - OCT 6, 2007
Bottle. I was a little disapointed with this brew. I’m not a huge fan of Ambers, but when they’re done right, I love them. This one was just a little too toasted malty for me, with not enough hop balance in my mind. Bittersweet finish, not as refreshing as I would have liked.

Summits Wayside Tavern, Sandy Springs, Ga (Atlanta) - on tap. Pours a medium orange with an everprescent sticky white head. Faint caramel in the aroma with a back end of citrusy hoppiness. Flavor has a similar profile with some underlying west coast hoppiness as a reminder of where it s from. Detect a bit of homebrew funkiness near the finish with some candied sugar notes and some cotton candy. Clean mouthfeel, sits well. Overall, not bad at all.

Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with no head over a clear golden orange body. Aroma of grass, body odor, grainy and light hops. Taste is sweet and grainy with what I swear is nearly a hint of watermelon (as odd as that may sound). Thin and dry mouthfeel. FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a copper color with a huge foamy orange head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet toasted caramel but was a bit vegetal. The flavor was sweet toasted caramel, fig, honey and nut. The finish was medium length tangy caramel and nut. Medium body. Ok. Ernest (7696) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 12, 2008
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white to light brown, mostly diminishing.
Body is medium to dark amber.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (cookie, caramel, grain), lightly hoppy (flowers, apricot), with a light note of peach.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly unclean.
Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Reasonably pleasant (if simple) aroma, but marred by a somewhat dirty aftertaste (much as with Sam Adams beers). Ehh. blankboy (7689) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 7, 2008
Bottle (12oz). Pours a clear orange-amber with an average size diminishing fizzy off-white head. Mild aroma of caramel malt, fruit, toasted grain, some earthiness and sweetness -- it’s all very mild and subtle though. Mild, slightly watery flavour of caramel malt, toasted grain, sweet fruit, a bit of spices and a very light bitter finish. Some light, sweet candy-like flavour mixed in there too -- not unpleasant, just a little odd. Average bodied. It’s alright, it’s not bad but it’s nothing special, just a decent Amber-like beer. BuckeyeBoy (7680) - Boise, Idaho, USA - APR 1, 2009
Bottle Pours out a amber topped with a small sand head. Aroma of a light hop with a so so malt. Tast was of malt and a little bitter on the end.
