This is now the amber by which I judge all others. Nearly perfect.
Pours crisply clear amber-red. Beautiful.
Kind of a lighty, fruit hoppy with a deep caramel scent. Maybe some biscuit as well. An ever so slight metallic tinge on the end.
Delicious, smooth maltiness when it first touches the tongue. This is followed by a broader, crisp bitterness and a bit os astringency. Very, very tasty.
Well carbonated, per the expectations of an amber, but supported by the silky-smooth malt character.
Very, very drinkable. Thank goodness this isn't cheap, or I'd be poor in the heat of the summer.
A very nicely done brew. Sure, I ranked it awfully high, but this is easily the truest and best amber I've ever had. I highly doubt that any other commercial brewers are doing such a solid amber. Damn!

Pours a murky brownish color and has a huge tan head. Impressive! It has a nice malty aroma with subdued hops on the nose. The flavor is superb... there is a nuttiness that is followed by a terrific hop bite. I think I am in love. It looks like a brown ale, smells like a brown ale and it certainly tastes like a top notch brown ale, but it is called a amber ale... go figure. All I know is that I like this beer a lot.

dry hopping is the key to its success. Not only did I taste the dry hopping but also smelled it as soon as I pour it into a glass. The body is beautiful, love rubby red color when put it under the light. as I have said, the dry hopping gives this beer so many characters to review, but they are all beyond my words. Drink it slowly and enjoy it.

Beautiful dim maple syrup body with lots of carbonation. Creamy light tan with pretty good retention and lace.
Spiced hop scent with a firm underlying malt base. Very inviting and fresh.
What a balance and still a distinct hop and malt profile. Grass, flower, sharp licorice root and herbs again rolling along on an ocean of malt. Smoky and pungent aftertaste, sweet and sharp. A Good simcoe like flavor comes through very clearly though none are in this brew.
Medium body and a crisp finish.
Highly drinkable and an excellent session beer.

Serving: 22oz. painted label bomber poured into a pint glass

A:Pours a dark amber with a thick head which quickly dissipated to a wisp around the edge of the pint. Abeautiful looking beer.

S:Thick sweet malt with a nice citrusy hop balance. Caramel and coffee with a resinous hop aroma.

T:Almost syrupy with a refreshing hop bite and clean water. Deep roast coffee hits the back of the throat.

M:Being my favorite beer style this is bliss. A dry hop bite with a deep malt sweetness.

D:Good for one or two but not all night. Definetely a treat. Pick some up ASAP.
