Thanks to Tieman for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours a clear copper with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of toasted malt, biscuit, and caramel aromas. Taste is much the same with malt and subdued herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer that is much more on the malty side of things all around.

A: The pour is a deep, dark, brown color with plenty of red notes. The head is minimal and some spots of lacing are left.

S: The smell is very rich and malty. A lot of brown sugar, caramel, toffee, and a mild roasted quality.

T: The taste follows the nose. Big sugar, toffee, and caramel, flavors. The roasted malt is not as noticeable here. The flavors are quite reminiscent of a barleywine.

M: Low carbonation, medium body, and quite smooth.

D: I generally like a hoppier red/amber ale, but this was actually quite good. I think the flavors were bold enough to make this beer something more than a sugary mess.

Appearance: Pours a hazy red body with a profusely fizzy, off-white head.

Smell: Aroma of caramel malts, toasted grains, and a mild citrus hop presence.

Taste: Caramel maltiness with a nice measure of sweetness. Notes of toasted grains and lemon. A spicy, earth bitterness emerges on the finishes, but remains rather light. Simple and straightforward, but this is an amber ale we're talking about.

Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Moderate carbonation.

Drinkability: Though I'd prefer a more milder level of carbonation, I still thought this one was pretty good.

22 oz. bomber,

A: Pours a dark amber/red with a 1.5 finger white head with good lace.

S: Nice sweet caramel malt, 1-dimensional, but enjoyable and fragrant.

T: Heavy like the nose on the sweet caramel malt, real light-hopping. A lot like a British mild.

M: Smooth, medium-bodied, soft carbonation.

D: Another well made beer out of Kern River. I've had 4 of their beers in the last month, and I am really quite impressed.

Poured on-tap at the brewery in Kernville into a pint glass. The beer presents with a deep copper/amber color, with a thin, foamy head. Tastes of dark roasted malts and caramel. There is a bit of a harsh aftertaste from the roast, but the beer still maintains a smooth and balanced taste and in-mouth feel. There is a good overall flavor to this brew. Pretty decent for a Red.

Pours a dark, slightly hazy amber with a sizable off-white head that recedes very slowly to a thin, creamy cap and a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet with caramel malts dominating with a slightly roasted character to it. There is also a slightly grassy hop aroma.

The taste is more earthy with some grassy hops and a light sweet caramel malt backbone. The finish is bitter with a combination of hops and toasted grains.

The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and borders on watery with the flavors seemingly muted.

This is a fair amber that's pretty drinkable but doesn't have much depth to it. Not bad.

Bottle as one of many generous extras from Odeed. Thanks man!
Pours a reddish cloudy color. Smell is mild caramel malt and light tame hops. Taste is mild as well, with faint hop flavor coming through, but I found this to be lackluster flavorwise. Could be in part to palate fatigue, but still wasn't overly flavorful. No flaws stuck out, however, and it was an easy drinker.
