On Tap at BrewPub. Pours out a clear amber topped with a small head. A nice sweet and wood flavor on this one. Idiosynkrasie (7508) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - DEC 17, 2016
355ml can. Minimally cloudy, amber colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Caramel malty and minimally earthy, grassy, aroma, hints of dark berries. Taste is slightly dry and minimally fruity hoppy, hints of dark berries and cherry, caramel malty background, an earthy-grassy touch as well. Not really worth a transcontinental and transatlantic journey. Strykzone (7351) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Bomber from Hayduke that we had over facebook chat. An opaque amber pour under a tan head of tiny bubbles. A rich malty and floral aroma. Those are tasted. Soon I begin to taste toffee as what is tasted in Russell Stover candy. This is fairly dry and has some earth in it. Some syrup. Noble hops and they are in the after taste. Also a hint of citrus. The hops give a long lasting flavor when the glass is empty. AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - OCT 31, 2011
Clear amber color with ivory sheen. Nutty, soapy, tea leaf, caramel aromas. light bodied. Lightly sweet spicy caramel, nutty flavors with a tea leaf twang to finish--decent

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2005 Bottle pours deep amber, slightly hazy, small cream colored head, fantastic lacing, with minor carbonation. Malts on the nose, quite biscuity. Forwardly malty, rather smooth and sweet too. WOW, this is really tasty! Medium body, velvety mouthfeel, with a crisp clean finish. This is one smooth and easy to drink amber... a nice malty flavor, slightly sweet, maybe a bit nutty... just superb! A bit light, but as a summer seasonal it fits perfectly! kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 4, 2008
22 oz bottle, via 5000. Pours a mostly clear copper to light amber body with a slight yeast haze under a small fizzy off-white head. The nose is equally balanced between toasted, lightly caramel, maltiness and a soft perfumy floral hoppiness. The flavor is malt centered with a slightly sweet toasted grain base with just a light accent of lightly bitter hops on the finish. Mouthfeel is fairly light bodied with moderate soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty good among the arena of Amber Ales. blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2011
bottle, thanks to bu11zeye, red amber color with a buttery banana and caramel aroma, flavors of malty bananas, caramel, cashew butter luttonm (6264) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 27, 2016
Draft at the Auburn WA Applebee’s, while waiting for my tire to be replaced. Wish I had a better beer to wash down the tire emergency. Soapy cream on clear brown. Looks like a bad Schwarz. Sweet malty aroma. Banana, bitter grain, water. Tootsie. Some metallic bittering, only a hint of hops. Cola bitter finish. Truly boring. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2009
Bottle from Ballard Market. 21st rating of this brew. Drank while watching the Sounders game with my buddies at their place in Ballard. Light toasty aroma with some caramel malts and that was about it. Pours amber with a thin lasting foamy head. Toasty, lightly sweet caramel malt notes, and some crisp unobtrusive hops. Just kind of toned down and ’regular’, but it is an amber ale, so what more can they do with it in all reality. Well made, just nothing spectacular to rave about. Gotta appreciate consistency and the fact that there was absolutely nothing wrong with the beer. Good session amber.
