Pours into a standard pint glass a copper/bronze color with a fluffy one finger white head that leaves multiple rings of broken lace behind as it settles.Chocolate malts stand out most in the nose not the big hops the can promises,mild earthiness is detected.Chocolate and fruity malt flavors dominate with some mild pine resin in the finish,again the can promises big hops and the malts dominate.It's not a horrible beer but it's basically a standard amber with a big chocolate elemant,not big hops.

12 ounce can w/o freshness info being offered
A: Almond amber, with a muted ruby hue. Darker khaki head, loose and larger bubbly. Leaves nice looking scattered fields of fine lace and some thicker froth.
S: Malty nose with vanilla and honey
T: Smooth malts, more honey and vanilla. Ample resiny hops late. Balance has been achieved.
M: Nice, carbonation on the lower side adding to smoothness and easy drinkability
O: Real nice amber, worthy sessioner. Nicely done.
Thanks to Joe D for the tasty can

Decent sized light tan head leaves a biscuit like small mound in the middle of the glass above a clear copper with a hint of red colored beer.
Light caramel malts mix well with citrus to pine hops in the aroma of this amber.
More light caramel malts with pine to citrus hops taste this is not overpowering but well balanced and easy to drink.
Light caramel aspect on a somewhat dry aftertaste on this medium bodied amber ale.
A very easy beer to drink with some good laid back qualities, I think I could go through a 6 pack in a relatively short period of time.

I like the crazy mountain Amber ale it is a very good version. The beer poured a copper clear with thin slightly offwhite head that is leaving a lace. The scent carried rich caramel malt. The taste is a great balance between teh rich sweeter malt and bittering hops. The mouthfeel is medium in body with smooth carbonation. Overall this rivals some of the better ambers I've had. This would be a great session ale.

Picked up a few cans in an LA Whole Foods. I'm usually not a fan of amber/red ales. I find they're too thick and not flavorful enough. This, however, is a touch lighter and has a great balance of spicy, lightly fruity hops with rich toast and biscuit, almost like a Biscoff, barley. The aroma lacks hops, but has a pleasant caramel and toffee character. Overall, a welcome take on the style. It's not really low enough in alcohol to be a session beer, but I'd be happy to sit down and have a few.

I popped the can open and beer and foam came flying out. Not sure if it was user error or not... Anyway, lots of foam on a cloudy, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is a dull citrus smell with some hay thrown in.
The taste has a good malt backbone with only a mild sweetness. Pine bitterness to end. Enjoyable.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Besides the exploding can, I thought this was a fine drink.

Crazy Mountain Amber Ale pours a beautiful clear amber copper color with a slightly off white head.
The aroma is predominately biscuity caramel and nutty malt but also has a fantastic floral, citrusy and piney hop presence.
Taste follows in suit, biscuity caramel malt sweetness up front, with a crisp, dry hoppy finish leaving you thirsty for more.
This beer is medium bodied with good carbonation.
Overall, a nice hoppy amber ale. Looking forward to trying some of there other offerings

Once again woodychandler comes through with yet another canned beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has an auburn color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of caramel and malts. Taste is a bit malty, some hops and caramel are present. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is an enjoyable beer.

From 12 ounce can, bought at Mile High Wine and Spirits, Lakewood.
Good head, good retention. Pours fizzy and pure amber, clear and filtered.
Smell is malty and biscuity, as an amber should be. Small notes of nut. Tastes like a Fat Tire light, mostly due to the mouth feel, which is thinner.
Impressed by color, smell. Underwhelmed by taste. I'd stick with Fat Tire, which is sad cause Fat Tire is not very good anymore.

A) Pours with a thin head that dissipates quickly. Clear amber colored body. No lacing on the drink down.
S) Subtle roasty malt notes. Not very aromatic.
T) Earthy caramel malt. A thin taste profile. Finishes with mellow hop bite.
M) On the lighter side of medium body. Not much carbonation
O) An OK beer. I won't be clamoring to drink this again.
