Fairly sweet and boring amber ale with very little in the way of a hops contribution; Has a fairly strong apricot overtone, especially in the finish; Perhaps a little citrusy flavor adding a touch of tartness; Minimally bitter, so there's just not enough balance for a beer of this style; Something just doesn't smell right with the nose either -- some kind of stinky feet thing going on; The amber/yellow color is a bit light for the style; Off white head dies away very quickly and leaves not a trace of lacing; Every facet of this beer is mediocre and unimpressive wulfhere (217) - Billings, Montana, USA - FEB 29, 2004
Man, this is one of hose beers where you just have to admit there are 4000 just like it out there.

Nearly undrinkable. Hazy, wheaty amber, with a TON, and I mean a TON, of fizz. Overly carbonated with almost no flavor. Another bigtime loser from Widmer. Goes down as one of the worst non-American Standard beers I've ever had... DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - JAN 17, 2004
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2004 clear, thin head, and smells like dead rotting fruity puke with a side order of death...tastes like moldy cardboard and old mangoes. Im confused as to what the point of this beer is. 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 17, 2004
Staind oak color,minimal head. Smells like i puked, but the majority of the puke was beer and potatoe chips. Didnt taste much better, and im surprised at the high rating.

Golden body and weak, ephemeral white head. Cheesy aroma with some wood as well. Inoffensive and typical flavor for an amber. Just seems weak. Body feel is also a little thin. 3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2003
Medium copper clear appearance. Malty syrup aroma and flavor, nothing exciting, but not bad. Sour apples in the finish. Reid (2541) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 30, 2003
The beer looks pretty good..nothing spectacular but still invitng.
Its a very light brown..almost burnished brass colour with a small head , which soon fades to a good sized lace.
Smell is muted yet i do pick up on a little malt..thats about it..average aroma.
For such a weak aroma the taste is actually quite nice..nice maltry taste right at the start but as it reaches the back of the tongue a nice hop bitterness takes over..very balanced.
Fells pretty nice in the mouth , the carbonation is not too high just right.
Overall a drinkable amber..but with the market so saturated with these I doubt i will find a reason to return to this.

While not a fan of Widmer beers, this had a clean, refreshing caramelly flavor that you come to expect from a good amber. BarePaw (148) - Pullman, Washington, USA - OCT 13, 2003
This is a good amber. It pours a nice thick offwhite head. It has a lighter amber color. It has a smooth carmel flavor that is very pleasant.
