One of the smoother Amber Ales I have had. Doesn't not have an overly hoppy flavor. The quality of the ingredients is very evident. The nose is a bit sweet and the aroma lingers on your tongue after a sip. Should be a good seller for quite sometime. ABV=5.25%, IBU= 25, SRM=18

12oz can picked up from Beer Study in Chapel Hill and poured into a pint glass.

A - A little darker than your average amber. It was more of a brown/yellow. Not too pretty. A fingers worth of head that raced back into the crystal clear brew.

S - Floral floral and more floral. I love it. Biscuity malts too.

T - Wow. I had to check the label again to make sure this was an Amber. Tastes more like a Pale Ale: tons of hop flavor. No bitterness though, as the label indicates that West Coast hops are added late in the boil. That biscuity finish is a true Amber finish though. This is a very unique approach to Amber. I was very pleasantly surprised.

M - Lightly carbonated and medium bodied.

O - A very sessionable yet flavorful Amber. It maintains balance and complexity. Where it lacks it beauty, it more than compensates in taste and smell. I see myself revisiting this brew in the near future.

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.

Can from Total Beverage Westminster poured a clear amber with a small lingering amber head. Aroma of carmel, fruittiness, graininess and earthiness. Mouthfeel was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, earthiness, fruittiness and light graininess with a smooth lingering malty finish.

Poured from a can into a basic beer mug. Nice golden to amber color with a really floral aroma. I smell citrus with a touch of pine. Nice head with good glass lacing. The beer tastes great with Carmel undertones and finishes clean. I really enjoyed this beer and would recommend again for this style. Very easy to drink. Could be enjoyed with dinner or watching a football game.

Single finger head with decent lacing on a clear amber with slight golden hue body. Nice caramel malt aroma with earthy hops slight burnt toast note. Flavor is more smokey also with a burnt toast presence on a toasted malt background. Light caramel notes. Medium body and moderate carbonation. This is a very nicey hopped amber beer. Very good.

Heard good things about this brewery from buddies that live in the hills. I've driven by it many times when I'm up in Edwards but never stopped it. I was fairly excited when I saw a 6-pack on the shelves down in Parker so I picked it up.

A - Poured from undated can to a pint glass. The beer pours a brilliant clear amber/copper color with a nice 1 finger slightly off-white head. Decent retention and some lacing throughout.

S - The can boasts ridiculous hop character but I didn't really find it on the nose, that isn't to say it's bad, it's just not a hop-forward aroma. The caramel malt and biscuity sweetness are prevalent first with hints of piney hops.

T - Very similar to the nose. The malty sweetness heavy on the caramel malt flavor dominate. The piney/grassy hop character blends nicely and provides a mild bitterness. The yeast provides a clean brew.

M - Medium bodied and well carbonated. Finishes crisp and clean.

O - A solid brew, I would easily buy this again. I can see myself drinking a fair amount of this this summer. Good representation of the style.
