As far as an amber goes this is the most impressively crafted. Toast, caramel and toffee on the aroma with subtle spicy hops. Creamy off white head that are pillows of heavenly suds. Rich and clean Amber color. On the taste I get comforting and tasty notes of toast, caramel, and juicy spicy hops. thetmaxx (917) - West Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 4, 2012
On tap in the tasting room. Aroma is malt and hoppy. Well balanced flavor also, the bitterness and malt work well together. One of the best Ambers I’ve had! Nice head and lacing. Slightly hazy, but pretty clear Amber color. Palate is medium body and finished thick, oily and dry. garrettnjay (20) - - JUN 19, 2015
Nice dark color, tight foam head, like a bed pillow. So many wonderful subtleties in this one: coffee, caramel, light smoke. Well-balanced. A wonderful beer for a hot day, or a late fall afternoon. Tasty. Ratman197 (14852) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2015

Man I really liked this one. Great mouthfeel and brown amber malt. Loved it. This one is well balanced and so good. Wanted more.

An amber caramel color with an IPA smell which coats your tongue in a toasted and warm flavor palate. Taste the caramel and enjoy the mildly hoppy flavor. bnoel09 (587) - Elk Grove, California, USA - JUN 25, 2012
On tap at the brewery. Dark reddish amber pour. Aroma has some bready and caramel malt notes with some floral hops. Flavor matches the aroma well - good malty start with some nice hoppiness towards the finish. Solid amber. GenDV138 (7285) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - JAN 28, 2014

65 cl bottle @ home. Bottled 18.01.2016Fatehunter (2567) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Aroma has peaches, grain and resin. Sweet and nice. Flavour has resin, fruity tones, grapefruit, peaches and sweet maltyness. Easy-going and nice amber – not that heavy than AAs usually.
Poured a finger of head on a clear, but dark amber colored body.
The aroma is a strong lemon and orange smell blend. Pretty good.
The taste is moderately bitter moving to a sharp bitter finish. There is a burnt malt note at the very end too, which makes for an interesting finish.
The texture is soft and bubbly with moderate carbonation.
I like it, it’s a bit different that most amber ales.
