I was surprised that this brew was so ordinary from Weyerbacher. A decent ale with a good malt body and a groove to the hops. but comparitivly in the expectation category a bit lacking. Go withthe double simcoe raymow (1860) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2007
Another good beer from Weyerbacher (do they make a bad one?). At 1st, I was going to give this very high marks but then as the bottle progressed, I felt it needed a little sweetness to balance the metallic/hoppy flavor. Great color, not much aroma. Overall, pretty good but could be great with a little hint of sweetness. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 16, 2007
12oz bottle @ Coles, Buffalo, NY. Nice looking copper color. Thats where the positives end. Very bland , almost no taste what so ever. Got a little better as it warmed up. jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2007
12oz bottle-pours a foamy tan head and copper color. Aroma is medium/light malt-some sweetness. Taste is medium/light malt-some sweetness, secondary hops bitterness. Mild, nice. Mild carbonation.

Bottle. Aroma was toasty malts with a hint of hops. Poured a nice amber. Flavor was toasty and biscuity. Palate was ok nothing big. Overall it was okay I was hoping for a tinge more though.

12oz bottle (thanks to TY5592) poured a nice clear amber color with a decent off white head. Aroma was nothing special with mostly caramel malt. The taste was smooth with a nice malty flavor, but no hops to back it. Overall a good starting beer. Fantomas23 (463) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 3, 2006
Tasted in the sample room before the brewery tour on 11/3/2006. A non-offensive brew that was a good way to begin the day. Lacks the overwhelming complexity of some of their bigger beers, but it was still a treat to get a taste. More malty (caramel, biscuit) than hoppy. I’m looking to exploring it deeper on my next trip at the end of December 2006. maltdog (626) - New Mexico, USA - NOV 29, 2006
Bottle. Enchanting pale copper. Uneven eggshell fluff melts, leaving swags of sticky lace. Chewy caramel malt nose shares the stage with marigold, lemon zest, and perppermint hop aromas. Perhaps some pear-y, crabapple, and bubblegum wrapper esters... Bass yeast? Barley mash flavor features a sharp/tart quinine and mineral edge, along with a phosphoric hop twang. Full ,buttery body, plus pinpoint bubbles, tingly like steel wool. Dry and clean grassy aftertaste. A simple yet well-crafted and refreshing quaffer... closer to a best bitter than an amber.

Definitely an amber after the first sip with some malty dominance and some fruity flavors underneath. It could be a bit more balanced. I like it better than the ESB which isn’t a flavorful. Hopefully this one will evolve like hops infusion did.
Rerate: this one is growing on me and the malty dominance is a plus. I like that malty twinge in the aftertase which reminds me of UK brews except with a fuller body. The carbonation factor is a plus. TURDFERGUSON (4068) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - NOV 7, 2006
Bottle from Ty5592. Thanks broseph. Boring amber color is no head or carbonation to speak of. Smells like a generic craft brew. Yep. I just poured some down my throat. Not so tasty. Maybe Im just not into ambers. Yeah, I think thats it.
