White head. Clear yellow body. Weak hops aroma - served very cold. Relatively sweet flavor, not much bitterness. Some aftertaste which I cannot figure out.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 22, 2006
Draught. Clear reddish-orange color with off white head. Smelled of malty caramel and toffee accented by light flowery hops and rose hips. Flavor was similar with the addition of toasted bread or nuts and dried cherry. Dry on the tongue.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - JUL 20, 2006
12oz bottle. Pours a light, clear copper color with a small dense white foamy head. Nose is caramel malty and some sticky hop notes. Palate is crisp and clean with a light bitterness, very smooth. Flavor is caramel syrupy sugar maltiness with some more of the hop flavor from the nose.

cewldre (268) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Bottle. Poured a dark copper color with a slightly off white head that didnt seem to stick around. Taste and smell of caramel. Not to much hop or malt stuck out, but just enough to make this a very enjoyable beer.

sloth (2844) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - JUL 15, 2006
Small , tan/gray head, fair retention, lace is spotty. Clear, amber/orange hued brew. Resiny hop nose was surprising, lightly fruity, citrus and herbally. Body is medium, lightly coating on the palate. Medium sweet crystal malts, juicey hop flavors, citrus a little pine and a faint earthyness. Finish is a touch sweet and grainy. One solid Amber! Thanks Craig!

Tmoney99 (13901) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 12, 2006
Bottle. Poured deep copper color with a large frothy off-white head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Complex citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium smooth bitter flavor with a medium bitter sweet finish of moderate duration. This is a standout beer.

iowaherkeye (2703) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - JUL 12, 2006
12oz bottle, no date. Pours a clear brownish copper with a small light tan head. Aroma of pine and grapefruit up front, some caramel malts in back. Quite hoppy. Taste is again piney and grapefruity, caramel and a little bit of nuts come in to balance it out. Light bodied, moderate carbonation. Very nice amber.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 11, 2006
Beautiful pour, falling to a translucent amber orange with a heavy cobwebbed and grayish-tan dust concentration for the head. Aroma excels in its fulfillment of its "maltiness and boldly hopped" label promise. Caramel nougats, spruce needles and pine & toffee bark with a mild interjection by almond butter and sweet brown bread. Flavor gives a chalking toffee inference with a dry chai tea powder mix persona. Scratchy, nutty and dry cocoa flavored bubblegum. Archaic english toffee, Carnation instant breakfast and slightly sugared cedar basement paneling. Light-to-medium body with a supportive underbrush of carbonation. Though somewhat prepubescent, this one likely wont ripen one bit. Almond flavored bran flakes bring us full circle in the finish, joining a cast of sweetened shredded wheat and a crumbled toffee nougat characteristic for dry richness. Always hard for a beer to crawl out of the categorical amber hole it puts itself in. Nonetheless, thanks for the bottle, tpkenned!
