From the 22 oz. bottle marked 02Sep12-290988-1304236041-1453. Sampled on July 27, 2012.
It pours a light amber-golden color with a small, short-lived head.
The aroma has a lot of sweet malts, caramel, and butterscotch in it.
The body was about medium.
The taste also had a quantity of caramel and butterscotch in it with a mild hopped ending. It really was rather typical for the style with nothing that set it apart from anything else.

I really like amber ales, and this is no exception. New Belgium did this one right. This beer pours really nicely in a glass with a lite head. It is a very aromatic beer with scents of flowers and fruit. It tastes like an amber ale that has been rolled in a meadow. This is a perfect beer for spring, summer, or fall. Two thumbs up!!!

Pours an solid amber with a good amount of white head with good retention that drifts to webbing. The nose is refreshing, and nice not to get hit with a bag of citrus fruit. The biscuit/bready malt is surprisingly forward. Hops are floral and fruity (and yeast). Taste follows with lots of biscuit/bready malt and a bit of caramel. Hops are subdued, but floral and noble in nature. Also fruity yeast character. Mouthfeel is smooth and has good balance. Overall a fine beer, but it seems to be trying to break the mold for an American Amber.
