I've been drinking this beer for a long time...probably since it was introduced over 15 yrs. ago. It is one of the only beers that I can say I am sick of drinking. Not that it's terrible, but it has a sweetness that wears on you after a while.
It has good qualities, and east coasters love to drink it when they venture out west, but for any seasoned western craft beer fanatic, I'd choose just about anything else.
Serving type: on-tap

I had this on a freezing winter night this past year. I heard rave reviews of it and saw countless people buying pitchers at my local wing joint and decided to give it a try. It was slightly black in appearance and tasted like gasoline. I don't feel that I received a good batch or something else was wrong with it because it didn't look the same as when i had seen it in the past. I'd be willing to give it another go if it was offered to me.

A - Clear light yellow (not amber...?) with a thin fizzy half a finger of white head, no lacing.
S - Big floury wheat and biscuit malt aroma, a little yeasty.
T - Unique in flavor, has a little of that belgian yeast trait, biscuit dough, has a little burnt caramel flavor too.
M - Just ok, a little watery.
O - This is not really an amber ale at all, I'm not sure where you'd place it, but its lame. Though, everyone's had it, and people act like its a big deal to drink.
