bottle-pours golden orange hue with small white head. malty sweet aroma-slightly earthy hop notes come thorugh that give this beer a flowery note. Sweet malts, earthy hops and very yeasty flavors. light bitterness on the finish. A very floral amber. Kevin (2217) - Montana, USA - DEC 31, 2004
pours a brownish yellow with a decent one finger snowy head. sweet malt aroma with a touch of lemon. smooth full body malt caramel taste. hoppy lemon hints in the finish but the sweetness dominates throughout. not overly sweet, nicely balanced easy drinking with a flavor i am really fond of. this might be my favorite brew from this brewery.

Clear yellow/amber color, not hugely lively in appearance. Good hop aroma of gentle citrus and pine, flavor of some malty fruitiness, sufficient hops, and generous afterglow of lingering but mild hops. Not bad. The "world on the street" is that Saint Arnold is very conservative about making sure they really are pleased with a beer before they go public with it. It paid off here. appreciated! Still, it would be nice if they pumped out a few specials and small-batch seasonals. Lumpy (1802) - Carrollton, Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2004
Bottle. First tastes-hops, straw, earth, and amber malts. AMber body with a great clean hop presence. One of the best Amber Ales that I have ever had. Period. Styles (2016) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - NOV 29, 2004
Pours amber with no head. Sweet malt aroma with caramel and ginger? Initial taste is sweet malt fading to spices. Still can’t tell if it is ginger? Dry finish with a little bitterness to it.

Poured from the bottle at Waterloo Icehouse in Austin, Tx. Pours a murky medium orange with little to no head. Aroma has some malty notes with soime caramel notes. Flavor is sweet and malty with a bit oif a citrusy hoppy backdrop. Mouthfeel is clean and even. A most drinkable amber ale. Dogbrick (14326) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 14, 2004
Thanks to bu11zeye for the trade. This is a pretty good Amber Ale. Pours a dark honey color with a thin off-white head and minimal lacing. The aroma is fairly malty, with a little bread and caramel. Light and sweet mouthfeel, with earthy malt, and hops flavors. The finish is zesty and lightly bitter. Not a bad job on this one. jhollera (1) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 10, 2004 does not count

Bottle Pours a clear medium amber with a nice fluffy white head that maintains quite well. Lacing is hefty and chunky. Toasted grain and bready notes on the nose and a slight hop slant. Flavors are sweet and bready with little hops and a soft wheat bread aftertaste. Very plain and simple but not unpleasant. Soft carbonation.
Not bad. Thanks again to Kaggie97 for this texas brewskie Sancho (245) - Da Bronx, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2004
