Can. Pours with a clear amber-bronze hued body with a small white head that fades. Aromas are malty, grainy, toasty, lightly nutty. Medium fruity esters. Minimal hop. Flavors are estery, raisins, grainy, toasty and nutty. No hop character and bitterness only to balance. Dry malt character, much more toasted than caramelized (which I appreciate). Medium bodied with a dry finish.
I’m surprised that I actually somewhat like this amber ale (a style I don’t much care for). Much better than anticipated.
On tap at SanTan, pours a clear copper amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out bready malt and light hop resins. Flavour brings out lots of toasted caramely bready malt and hop resins. Nice balance and quite robust. Solid. ryrpat (380) - Illinois, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Very smooth Amber. Easy to drink with a nice malty flavor that isn't overpowering. Another great effort by santan

Pours an amber color with a sugar and caramel malt aroma. Taste is similar, with a sweet toffee flavor that leaves a minimal bitterness after the swallow. tysongillmore (362) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - NOV 21, 2015
I didn't take any extra notes when I tried this beer for the first time but I'm gonna try it again and update my comments.

Tap at Grand Canyon Brewing. Pours clear amber with a small, fizzy off-white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is toast malt, apple esters and pine hops. Flavor is medium earthy and pine hops and bitterness with toast malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. valpoaj (745) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Tap pour - translucent medium brown body with a thick whitish head. Aroma is sweet malt, caramel, roastiness...not much otherwise. Flavor is heavy on the roasted caramelized malts, very sweet, and very one-dimensional. Palate is medium carbonation. Not much to write on this one...quite boring, even for the style...

On tap: The aroma is lightly fruity with a touch of caramel and faint nuts. It’s a transparent amber with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. The flavor starts with light-moderate fruit and a touch of caramel. The finish has light toasty notes and a touch of roasted nuts. It’s light bodied with mild carbonation.
