1 inch frothy head. Cloudy reddish brown in color (looks just like southern sweet tea). Citrus/hops, some alcohol and bread are present in the nose. Big earthy hop flavor...rye-like. Sweet, fruity, hint of rum underneath and delicious bouquet of floral, citrus hops. Alcohol in the nose is not noticeable on the palate. There is a muddy sweet and sour feel to this. Sticky and chewy, carbonation is subtle.
At nearly 7%, this is another example of a great American ale that blurs the line of category....call it a red ale, an IPA or a PA...I call it damn good and for $8.99 a bargain. Wisconsin scores!

12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. There is a space for an enjoy by date, but it is left blank. A random find for me in the mixed six pack section at my local beer store. My first beer from Ale Asylum. Expectations are moderately good.
Poured into a clear balloon snifter.
A - Oh yeah, its pours a beautiful dark coppery orange / amber color, almost ruby at times with lots of dark sediment flecks and two big fluffy fingers of beige froth. Good lacing. Looks very nice.
S - Smell is comprised of earthy / caramel / pale malts, green apples, and some dried herbal / vegetal smelling hop presence. Slight soapiness. Smells pretty nice.
T - Reminds me more of what I'd imagine a nice pale ale would be more so than an amber, but it's all good. Caramel / amber malt, and earthy / piney / sticky green apple hop presence.
M - Feel is dry, bready, sticky, & bitter. Some piney / green apple hop presence lingering on the palate. Good balance. Medium bodied
Overall, a very nice, if somewhat standard, slightly above average offering from Ale Asylum. More hop forward than a lot of other amber ales I've had. Reminds me more of a stronger pale ale or an older more malt forward IPA. Either way, I'm not hard to please. I'd have it again.
Ale Asylum Ambergeddon ---4/5.
