330ml bottle. Pours a dark rusty hued amber with a large beige head, good lacing. Aroma and taste is caramel malt, grains, light yeast, mild fruity notes. Palate is a medium body with moderate carbonation. Finish is caramel malt, grains, some yeast and , moderate hops bitterness with a mild nutty flavor. Aroma and flavor seems to improve as it warms up, but need a bit more backbone. Overall an ok brew to try, not too bad.

330ml bottle - maybe more Hallowe'en worthy, but I didn't come across this one until this past week. Upon popping the cap, this POS gushed all over the damned table - always my favourite fucking thing.

This beer pours a clear, bright medium bronzed amber colour, with a measly two fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and caked off-white head, which leaves some decent webbed forest branch lace around the glass as it slowly recedes -, Queensrÿche!

It smells of grainy, crackery caramel malt, dead yeast cells, overripe apple and pear, a hint of stale discount store nuts, and muddled piney, grassy, and weedy hops. The taste is semi-sweet bready caramel malt, ephemeral orchard fruit, a wee yeastie and beastie sourness, nut skin (meep!), and a plain earthy, musty, and mildly floral hoppiness.

The bubbles are actual pretty well-behaved after that egregious opening salvo, the body a stoic and acceptable medium weight, and more or less smooth, with a slight metallic yeastiness starting to horn in as it warms. It finishes off-dry, the plain-Jane caramel malt riding things out as if the River Styx were retro cool.

Well, my rancour for whatever the hell caused my desk to now smell like Mexican amber ale, has well dissipated - this ain't half bad, to tell ya the truth. Simple, sure, but no real off-flavours, and easy enough to drink, previous caveats duly noted. Too bad that this is priced at premium import six-pack levels around here - oh, right, that doesn't really matter to the Heineken and Stella crowd.

Pours a half finger of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is molasses and wet grains.
The taste is malty sweetness, and a sweeter finish.
The texture is medium.
A sweeter amber ale.

Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a copper color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, a touch of caramel. Taste is malty, some hops are present, a bit of caramel, easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing and enjoyable beer.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a light to medium coppery amber with a one finger off-white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of biscuit and caramel malt, grassy and mildly piney hops, a hint of nuts. Medium bodied with good carbonation. This series of beers has been better than mass produced beers, but not quite up to craft standards, usually adequate renitions of the style, but not too exciting. This one, however, was quite nicely done, a classic amber (approaching a red) ale profile with a very nice malt base supporting good hop flavors. Maybe I got a great batch, and I'm bucking the trend here thinking this was a very nicely done amber/red ale and one I'd buy again in a heartbeat. I'm pleasantly surprised.

I had picked up four of the six beers in this series during a Veterans Day beer run to State Line Liquors in Elkton, MD and during my trip to Norfolk, VA last weekend, I stopped in at Total Wine & More and scored to other two. I LOVE the label art, I gotta say!

I used an aggro pour to get a pseudo-cascade going, which formed two fingers of fluffy, rocky, tawny head with nice retention. Color was Light Copper to Copper (SRM = > 13, < 17) with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a pleasant caramel sweetness. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium. The taste was slightly bitter, unexpected, given the nose, but not unpleasant. Finish was semi-dry, more bitter than sweet, but not a bad iteration of the style. I remember in the early days of microbrewing, the Amber Ale was a staple and this was highly reminiscent of that period.

This beer reminded me of Samuel Adams Boston Lager, or Vienna lagers. Though its profile may be uncommon for an American amber, I think it's still quite pleasant. Nice malty smell and taste is definitely there.
