RATINGS: 23   MEAN: 3.15/5.0   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.12/5   EST. CALORIES: 240   ABV: 8%
The deep red color gives you a hint of this ale’s full flavor. Its rich maltiness comes from Crystal and Vienna malts. Golding and Cascade hops give it a subtle, bitter finish. Caution: at 8% alcohol, this beer’s got horsepower!

On tap at Wonder Street. Medium amber color. Thin off white head. Maltier than the other ambers tried here. Earthy and citrus. Could definitely use more hop balance.

brokensail (16444) - Dublin, California, USA - MAY 18, 2015
On tap @ Silver Peak. Dark amber colored beer with off-white foam. A lot of toast, bread, and caramel. Some soda water, too. Actually a touch of chocolate and cola. Okay. Slight nuttiness. The flavor is big on caramel and chocolate. Kind of nutty. A bit of cola on the back end as well. Typical garbage brewpub amber ale.

callmemickey (4542) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Dark amber body, thin off-white head, spotty lacing. Caramel malts. Not much else. A big amber ale. Medium to full bodied, mild carbonation, not much in the way of bitterness, semi-sweet throughout

"probably their most popular beer A) because it’s a malt bomb, so macro beer drinkers that are afraid of hops will love it, and B) it’s 8 freakin percent, so frat boys looking to get drunk quicker like it. That being said, even though I love my hops, this is a pretty stinkin good beer. Unbalanced, yes, but the flavor, mouthfeel, and aroma or all carmely, malty good! the best of their regular rotation."

Comes out of the tap a clear mahogany with a pale tan head. Malty aroma has hints of cloves and hops. Strong malty flavor has notes of cloves and horehound and a subtle hoppy undertone plus something of an alcohol nip. Thin but smooth body has light fizz.

Gription79 (2890) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 31, 2011
On draft at the restaurant.
Aroma: citrus, roasted malts
Taste: similar citrus, roasted malts as in the aroma, bready
A clean well made beer, a simple style, but this was crafted well.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - MAY 7, 2011
Light amber with a fizzy white head. Very faint malty aroma. Toffee and alcohol taste with a roasty finish.

troyc (2869) - Illinois, USA - APR 19, 2011
[Tap] Pours a bright copper color with a thin white head. Some caramel in the nose, with hints of alcohol and mild citrus. The taste is of caramel malts, sweet fruits and a Belgian-like sweetness to it. A bit cloying overall. One dimensional flavor profile lacks much of a hop balance. Not one of their best beers, in my opinion.

alexsdad06 (10378) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2010
Draft @ Silver Peak. Pours clear amber in color with a small off white head that leaves sporadic lacing. The aroma is mild caramel, pale malts with a moderate hops. The flavor opened with mild sweetness. Caramel dipped bread, mild to moderate hop bitterness, somewhat dry. Decent.

On tap at Brewpub
Appearance: Clear copper with a nice white head and lacing
Aroma: Caramel, malts
Taste: Caramel, malts and bittering hops
