a: rubyamber color, nice frothy head with pretty good retention. Reduces to lacing and rings around the glass
s: citrus hop aroma hits like a sledgehammer, hint of caramalized malt
t: carmel malts not as much hop flavor as I was expecting from the smell. I notice a bit of pine taste.
m&d: smooth and pretty well balanced. medium bodied, this beer is an awesome session brew.

Nice amber pour, decent off white head. Nose is carmel malt. Lightly bitter. Middle is woody hops, caramel, medium mouthfeel. Finish is spicy and bitter.

Recently enjoyed this amber ale fresh on tap in Hershey, PA. Poured a standard but appealing amber ale appearance with proportionate white foam, while the aroma is surprisingly herbal and hoppy for the style. Hop-forward flavor yet with a caramel malty contrast, this medium-bodied ale was a unique and enjoyable rendition of the style.

Tap. Floral hops and caramel malt. Pours a rich brown amber with white lace top. Taste has a similar sweet sour balance and both would be light to medium for me. Carbonation too. Considering how boring a balanced ale can be, this pleases

Bottle into my new Honest Weight willi becher. Pours kind of flat with the usual amber color for the style. Aroma of malt with a hint of citrus. Flavor is overly malty, bitter just a bit, caramel and toast. Mild bitter finish which doesn’t linger. Decent enough brew, but I’ve lost my taste for amber ales.

Well, NYC, USA. Not too special, but clear and has a malty character.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Âmbar translúcida, espuma alaranjada de ótima formação e persistência. Aroma carregado de caramelo, malte, lúpulos florais, leve amadeirado. Sabor de médio dulçor, amargor um pouco menos intenso. Corpo leve e média carbonatação. Com tempo de vai ficando menos floral e lupulada transparecendo mais o malte, mel, leve alaranjada, complexa na medida, final de média persistência e ótimo drinkability. Belíssimo exemplar.

6-pack bottles. Closer to an IPA than a traditional amber ale. There’s some caramel malt giving it color and a bit more backbone to it, but the hops are the star. If not a hop blockbuster, this definitely brings the hop flavor (pine and citrus). Very good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy, amber pout with thin, beige foam. Floral hops in the nose and a muted caramel malt. Light body and light fizz. The hops become more pronounced in the taste and provide a lingering finish. The hop presence makes the amber ale less malty and very pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Copper color with a tallish beige head. Fresh citric aromas with a toasted
and caramel malt background. I dare say, I hoppy amber, but Seems to be a bit more. Rich caramel light licorice and all kinds of hops flavors.
Unfortunately I’m still stuck thinking about a hoppy amber. 5/11
