Leighton (22773) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 10, 2010
Bottle. Certainly does strike a superb balance between malts and hops. Pours a dark, rich amber hue with a mild, off-white head. Nose is citrus hops and slight, roasted malts. Flavor has nice, earthy hop bitterness and burnt malt character. A few notes of caramel and coffee. Medium bitterness and sweetness. Smooth, rich body. Finish is tasty with warm, roasty malt aftertaste. Flavor could be a bit more robust but overall this is a great beer.

Bottle from the Freakin’ Frog, Las Vegas
Red-amber color. It has a moderate hoppy aroma, a bit resiny. The mouthfeel is quite dry, with dry toffee flavor, but with a fair hopping. Pleasant, as usual from Speakeasy.

Draught at 3 Små Rum, Göteborg. Slightly hazy copper beer with a nice beige/yellowish head. Malty caramel aroma, citrus, biscuits, floral notes, some grass. Hoppy citrus flavor, grassy, caramel, biscuits notes. Decent beer.

Keg (Gallows Bird, Espoo)
Very rich sweet malty aroma, grainy and a touch smoky wooliness - this seems more like a scotch ale than just an amber ale. Full smooth palate, a bit sweet and heavy. Pleasantly nutty and woody, sweetish too. Finish has a nice dry hoppiness. Kinda nce beer.

yngwie (17284) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 4, 2013
On tap at City, San Francisco. A dark amber beer topped by a finger-thick light beige head leaving lacings. The aroma is on the hoppy side, with some maltiness. Caramel too, also in the flavor. Nice bitterness, piney hops and a touch of dark bread. Pleasant carbonation, soft and at an appropriate level. Caramel notes and bitterness in the swallow. A decent beer indeed, but not very interesting. 130804

Ferris (17070) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle - Pine notes and a caramel backbone. Clear amber with a bubbly brown head. Lots of toffee with a resinous hoppy bitterness. Finish is very dry and bitter. The finish is what prevents this beer from being awesome.

3.8
Benzai (16917) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2015
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Clear dark red-brown color with a medium sized beige head. Aroma is malts, hops, resin. Taste malts, hops, resin, hint of caramel, sticky hops, nice bitterness. Decent body and carbonation. Nice one.

3.5
brokensail (16689) - Dublin, California, USA - JUL 28, 2016
On tap @ Speakeasy. Amber in color with an off-white head. Pretty straightforward amber ale here, though perhaps a little bit extra hop flavor and aroma than your typical crappy brewpub amber ale. Nice mix of caramel, toffee, and bready malts with a light bitterness of pine, citrus, and herbal hops. Light to moderate bitterness balance out the sweetness pretty nicely. It’s a fine enough beer.
