A slight disappointment for me, given my great affinity for other Speakeasy brews, particularly Big Daddy. I found the finish to be a little watery as others have mentioned.

Nice hoppy aroma. Pour is amber in color. Thin head. Good hoppy flavor up front, but the finish is a little too watered down. The IPA is a better one IMO. Probably could use a little more hops to balance out the bitterness.

On draught. Tasted during trip to California. Amber colour with a nice creamy head. A lot of flowor aroma. Very hoppy taste, without a lot of bitterness. A very great easy-drinking ale.

Dark amber in colour with somewhat low carbonation. Some nice hoppy aromas going on there, perhaps a mix of citrusy and woody (but not pine like) varieties. The flavor was far less malty than I had expected, with more leafy hop character coming through. The malt note that I detected was more of a slight roasted note. The body was a little thinner than expected too. Perhaps this bottle had a bit of a rough ride north? Anyway, Im glad that the MLCC finally brought in something with some hop character for a change.

On tap at the San Francisco "Brews on the Bay" Festival. Excellent amber ale, one of my favorites from the festival. Sweet caramel like malty aroma with a hint of molasses. Dark orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Good underlying bitterness. Not your everyday amber.

Bottle: Lighter than your typical amber ale. It has a pleasant sweet smell like molasses cookies. There really was no lacing and showed an interesting yellowish-brown head. What I thought stood out most was a nice bitter aftertaste similar to an IPA. It was loaded with lots of carbonation and a general woody taste. Pretty good.

IndianaRed (4265) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 27, 2005
Bottle Pours a clear orange/amber with a nice off white head . Lacing is chunky and coarse. Sweet bread like aromas. Strong woody flavors and quite bitter. Quite thin feel. Cardboard aftertaste. Glad to have tried it.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - AUG 18, 2005
Poured a slightly hazed amber color with a huge (too big) off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops on top with caramel maltiness underneath. Flavor is sweet with more citrus/grapefruit covering up most of the malt (this is not a bad thing) Finishes with a nice hop bitterness. Fizzy mouthfeel becomes a detractor from an other wise very nice beer. Other slight flaw is a touch of "metalic" taste.

Ratman197 (14364) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Bottle poured a clear amber with an off white head. Aromas of sweet malt, carmel and a hint of citrus. Palate was a little on the thin side. Flavors of malt, and carmel with a mildly bitter finish. This is hardly what I would call boldly hopped!

Dark orange pour, bubble white head. Orange citrus hop aroma. Nice dent bitter taste - more than the aroma would suggest. Looks watery but certainly isnt - it does have a thin mouthfeel though. I found it to be a good session brew the best thing that has happened to "amber" ales in quite some time. My 2nd enjoyable brew from these guys.
