Nice sweet malty base with a grapefruit hops bite. Very well balanced. Refreshing with a nice dry finish.
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. eRock_2013 (469) - South Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2017
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. theprof (947) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2017
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 DrNosha (2342) - Württemberg, Germany, GERMANY - APR 8, 2017
12oz Flasche. Schöne Bernsteinfarbe. Cremiger Schaum. Orange und Malz datu Karamel Duft. Antrunk erstmal dezent. Dann Karamel und Hopfenblume. Süffig und lecker. migwell (365) - Massachusetts, USA - MAR 18, 2017
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.

Tap@The Well, NYC, USA. Not too special, but clear and has a malty character. Tognetta (951) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - JAN 30, 2017
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. PanMarek (438) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2016
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.

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
