(Bottle at OT, Stockhom) Pours a bit hazy red amber with a small white head. Smells pine and citrus hops. Malty. Some vanilla. Tastes malt with pine hops. Pineapple. Like a classic american pale ale, but amber. Nothing special but good. Great bottle design.

Pours amber with a nice red tint to it. Medium to thin light brown head. Nice and hoppy aroma for an amber ale. Initial taste is of the citrus hops followed by a good malt balance. A little more caramel taste is present as it warms. The is an easy drinking beer, very crisp and clean finish. Light to medium body. Not your typical amber, but I like it.

shigadeyo (3705) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 15, 2006
Nice amber color with a slight chill haze. Creamy light tan head that laces nicely. Gentle carbonation. Wonderful hop aroma that is making my mouth water! Hoppy with citris flavors at first followed by a good amount of malt to balance it. Finishes with a mild hop bitterness that leaves me wanting more! I would have mistaken this for a pale ale if I didnt already know it was an amber ale. 12 oz bottle, $1.35 from Rivers Bend.

bhensonb (14881) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 12, 2006
NIce aroma of citrusy hop with underlying malt. Beautiful copper/amber color with a light tan head. Starts with wonderful hops, mostly citrusy, followed by a thrust of malt, ending with very nice bitterness, possibly with some pine coming past the citrus. Its all in the perception. Theres some sort of tobacco type spice? in the finish? Maybe its a bit of herbal note. Theres something there. Really very good.

dwyerpg (5946) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - AUG 11, 2006
Hops throughout the aroma. No head. The haps are in this so much to the point that it makes you think of an APA more than an amber. And Im not complaining. A little caramel in the finish.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2006
Bottle sampled at Issac Newtons. Pours amber with a decent sized off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, citrus, hops, and slight fruit. The flavor is hoppy bitter, fruit, citrus, and sweet caramel malts. Good body, good brew.

bgburdman9 (861) - columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2006
The head on this was pretty weak. I poured rather firmly and not much appeared, A little grapefruit hoppy and carmel malty aroma. The flavor was the same citrus flavor but not a whole lot of bitterness. Had a very light feeling in the mouth, and had the consistency of a glass of water.

oh6gdx (26412) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 7, 2006
Bottled. Amber colour, mediumsized foamy white head. Fruits, raisins, malts and hops in aroma. Flavour is strong hops, a bit of raisins and a long hoppy (flowery) aftertaste.

cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - AUG 6, 2006
Pours a clear deep amber color with a nice initial off white head. Nice lacing. Aroma is a nice balance of hops and malt. The flavor is also well balanced. Caramel malts come through nicely. Very smooth medium body beer. A pleasant suprise.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2006
12oz bottle via trade with cbkschubert - Thanks Craig! - Pours dark amber with a creamy offwhite head that stays pretty well and laces a little. Aromas of light citrus hops over big caramel malts. Flavor is caramel with light citrus, a little toffee, some bread, slight bitterness on the finish but not really what I would call "aggresive" hoppiness.. Medium bodied average carbonation and fairly crisp and clean.
