appearance is good, color is off for an amber, more of a hazy golden yellowish color instead of an amber reddish brown. unfiltered. Smell is balanced, more on the malty side with minimal hops aroma and some carmelyness.
taste...is amazing! wow! this is the first beer thats really surprised (in a good way) me in a while! initially its pretty sweet and malty, almost to the point that you'd think it was going overtake the beer, but then after a second or two the sweetness completly dissapaits and you get some caramely malts and a very easy to drink smooth well rounded balaced beer. there is also this carbonated tingling... that is unexplainable but great, never expierienced that before but loved it! Move over alaskan and full sail this is my new favorite amber! Sessionable!

A. This is one beautiful beer. Pours a hazy dark copper/amber with a fluffy off white head.
S. Sweet caramel malts and a light fruitiness (orange peel and some dark fruit)
T. A superb amber ale. Nice sweet malty backbone with a light bitter finish. Hints of caramel, orange peel, brown sugar, and a nice yeastiness.
M. nice medium body with a good MF.
D. Easily a sessionanble amber ale with some great flavor. Definitely gonna pick up a 6er real quick.

Just a random pick up in a choose your own 6-pack. I've had a few other Amber ales that weren't bad, but nothing I'd join a site just to review and remember. My expectations weren't too high, which made it all the better. It looks good, and smells great, but that's just the start. Slightly hoppy, slightly bitter, slightly smokey, great feel. Overall it has all the elements of a great beer, and they're in harmony unlike other beers that overkill one element. I think it's my new favorite all-season beer.

Poured from a bottle into a standard pint glass.
A: Dark orange with two fingers of tan head with an assortment of different sized bubbles. Unfiltered floaties throughout. Top half of beer super cloudy from swirled sediment poured in.
S: Honey, apples, light citrus, floral hops and notes of vanilla. Smells fantastic.
T: Taste is even better than the smell. A creamy mouthfeel is supported well by a refreshing caramel and vanilla body with a great hop presence but not at all "piney." Very slight malty bitters in the aftertaste but overall a clean finish.
D: My advice is get at least a sixer. Never overwhelms.
Value: Amazing. I paid just over ten bucks for a six pack. This is one of the best ales I have ever tasted and for what I paid it was a total steal.
Highly recommended for those times when you wanna drink some awesome beer that you don't need to put too much thought into.
