Amber pour, off white head. Nice caramel malt, toffee, light sugar cookie notes and some mild hops. Overall a pretty good beer for the style.

Draft. Rich amber beer witha cream colored head. Toasty aroma with malt. Toasted malt flavor with backing citrus hops. Medium bodied. Toasty malts and citrus hops linger. Well balanced.

On tap at Pinnacle Peak Patio, it pours a nice deep amber color but with little to no head. Good flavor of mild hops, malts and even caramel but far from original. That’s not to say it was bad, far from it, it just didn’t blow my mind. Nice, somewhat bitter finish.

On cask at brewery: Though I’m not a huge fan of the style, this is one of the best ambers I’ve ever had: nice caramel character without being too sweet; earthy malt notes, balanced hop profile, and smooth palate made this a pleasant surprise.

Small tan head thats short lived, minimal lace. Clear light amber brew. Malty nose somewhat musty, no hops detected. Med/light body. Medium sweet malt flavors, toffeeish with light caramel notes. Medium dry finish.

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2005 Light amber color with an okay head... the hopping makes this drink. It’s present, but not overbearing. "Clean." The aroma promised a better bitter hop taste than the flavor delivered, but it remains a pleasurable brew that one can enjoy all night long.

This beer falls under the "Amber Ale" category...nothing challenging or offensive, yet nothing interesting either. Pours a lighter amber color with a caramel aroma. Flavor is caramel malt and some light hop bitterness. Why do all amber ale's taste the same?

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - APR 11, 2004
Nice amber color with a tan head, sweet malty aroma. Taste was a mix of hops and caramel notes. Light on the palate.

Perhaps I got a bad bottle, but this was the worst mess I have ever attempted to drink. It was funky and sour. tasted like it was left along the highway in Arizona. REALLY BAD. But I'll give it another shot.
