Everything from two beers is quality! This amber is hoppy and perfectly balanced. Having just come from the brewery, I can say this can is ad fresh as the beer at the brewery. It has that caramel malt in ess up front, but the west coast hop presence comes in after the first sip. Cloudy dark amber color.
Can from Cotteridge Wines; clear dark copper pour with a frothy light tan head, aroma has sweet malts and toffee, taste has sweet red fruits, a hint of roast, sweet toffee. BuckeyeBoy (7975) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 15, 2017
Back log On tap at the tap station west Seattle. Pours out amber topped with a sand head. Nose is bread malts light grassy floral hops and some caramel sweetness. Taste is more of the malty sweetness and a light hop. olio (10374) - Tampere, FINLAND - JAN 5, 2017
355 ml can.Garrold (5341) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2016
Pours clear dark mahogany red color with a large head. Aroma is caramel malty, biscuits and some nut notes, some resinous hops. Flavor is dry nutty and malty, some caramel sweetness as well as dried fruits. Clean but a bit boring as this style usually is for me.
Can. StarmoreBoss, Sheffield. Clear, amber colour. Thin, sticky, off white head. Nose has caramel and dessert apple. Taste has a burnt caramel bitterness. Nice mouthfeel. Soft but fairly full. Bitter finish. This can is probably old as the hills, but it’s still pretty drinkable. allmyvinyl (10723) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 15, 2016
Can from Beers of Europe. Pours clear ruby amber with a thin beige head. Aromas of caramel, brown bread crusts, faint citrus. Taste is sweet, more caramel and toffee. Clean finish.

It had a really nice taste to it, above and beyond the average Amber style beer. ALLOVATE (3035) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2016
At just on cool and into a snifter. Radiant, but hazed ruddy copper with a bad case of the floaties. An off-white, cappuccino foam settles in for the length and daubs a thick lace. Doughy and yeasty nose with hints of Plasticine, rust, Anzac biscuits and damp cardboard. Tannic, astringent and phenolic, band-aid tainted palate. Cardboard malts and touch of peanut husks with a strange attempt at citrus notes coming through late in the swallow. Even more bizarre is the taste of boiled enochi mushroom broth that builds as the glass empties. Thin, watery with a carbonic acid bite up-front. Nothing going for it. Ugh!!

Can from Jerry’s. Beautiful pour, nice fluffy head, clear caramel color. Rest is rather pedestrian, normal malty aroma and taste, a bit drab. maekchu (3947) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 7, 2015
Can from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Nose of caramel, bread, all quite toasty. Hazy copper/amber color, with a splotchy tan head and thick lace. Caramel, light butterscotch, toffee, and moderate bittering in finish. Thin-medium body. A bit strong-featured and dark (as an amber); seems to be edging on a Scotch Ale. Carlisle (767) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 19, 2015
Can. Deep Amber-brown color with tan head and substantial lacing. Bready malt aroma with slight citrus. Rich, bready malt and caramel flavor with pleasant bitterness in the finish. Well-balanced. Mouthfeel is a bit watery. Overall, very good.
