Pours a hazy bubbly amber with a small diminishing fizzy white head. Nicely balanced aroma and flavour of mild hops and caramel malt. Quite carbonated and the body’s a tad thin. rosenbergh (11949) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2015
Draught at the Speakeasy, San Francisco, CA.altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - MAY 17, 2015
Clear amber colour with a small to mid-size light tan head.
Sweet caramel malt, mild nuts and mild hops in the aroma.
Sweet caramel malt, mild hops and mild bitterness in the flavour. Clean and nice amber ale.
On tap in Palo Alto. Nice caramel body with medium head. Nose is malty, caramel and sweet. Taste also nice and malty. With crisp finish. Bulk_Carrier (6064) - Vermont, USA - AUG 27, 2015
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy amber color with a nice looking foamy white head that dissipated fairly quickly. Spotty lacing glossed the sides of the glass. Semi-rings of the lacing is clingy.
The smell started off with an ample amount of sweet caramel riding into the sweet sticky citrusy hops.
The taste takes the previously mentioned flavors and melds together nicely. There’s a nice sweet caramel to orange aftertaste leading into the sweet semi-wet finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation is fairly light. Tangy to sweet orange caramel stickiness rides my tongue nicely.
Overall, I say this was a pretty good Amber/Red ale. I’d have again. Idiosynkrasie (8206) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 19, 2015
355ml bottle. Clear, dark copper colour with ruby red glimmer and average, thick, fluffy, fairly lasting and lacing, beige head. Zesty, fruity, hoppy aroma, notes of orange, orange zest, underlying hints of red berries, caramel malty background, a touch of sweet cherry. Taste is bitter hoppy, slightly fruity, hints of cherry and orange zest, slightly sweet, caramel malty background with very cautious hints of rose water perfumed marzipan; minimally watery interludes.

12oz bottle, Geers. Defies its amber ale purpose in the most delicious West Coast hopforward way imaginable, substituting the subtle charms of caramel-slathered toast, or malt textures for a lean helping of spruce, pine and orange zest, going into lingering near-vegetal overdrive: more Red IPA than amber ale to me, especially at +6%. Tasty, smoothly floating on thin pillows of fine malt -, but hard to plan into a tasting as the style it sets out to be. tricksta_p (5354) - Steenwijk, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma of malt, biscuit, caramel, fruits, pine resin, nuts, hops. Flavour is moderate sweet with a medium bitter hoppy finish. Body is medium. Enjoyable nicely hopped Amber Ale. Bosbouw (3038) - Gemonde, NETHERLANDS - NOV 5, 2015

Bottle thanks to Amanda.
Appearance - almost cherry Red. Nice fluffy head.
Nose - pine aroma, resin, hint of grapefruit. There’s a cake mixture thing going on too.
Taste - hazelnuts, muesli, light orange.
Palate - light to medium bodied with a fairly balanced finish.
Overall - lovely nose, then initially quite sweet on the taste. Then it grows again.
