Thanks to Beertracker for this bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with little head.

Very light biscuit malt scent.

There are watered down flavors of caramel malt, biscuit, and citrus. Mouthfeel is weak and over-carbonated.

Didn't dig this one. Maybe its better when had fresh.

I liked this one, not a bad beer. I really enjoy the Choc beers, I really would like to try the Miners beers they offer. I tend to like the strong amber taste in a beer. This beer is fairly hoppy I do enjoy a good hoppy beer. Overall this is one I think that would make a good export.

Pours a cloudy brownish amber with a thin tan head. Smell is of toasted grain. Taste is very biscuity, malty with a hint of tart fruit. A nice earthy finish as well from the hops. Mouthfeel is rich, nice smooth carbonation. Quite drinkable, this is a nice, simple ale to relax with.

The first bottle of this I had tasted extremely tart and sour, so I was worried, but I guess I just got a bad bottle the first time around, as this one is quite nice.

Pete's has been putting out some tasty brews these days. While not quite as bold as some of the west and east coasters, there are still some quality, respectable brews coming out of Krebs lately.

A fizzy tan head grows and fades quickly leaving a thin layer of foam on top and no lacing. Light amber in color, this brew looks like a keeper, but that's not the part that counts. There's not a lot going on in the aroma department. I smell faint spice and distant malts and maybe even some caramel sweetness. The aromas are quite subtle, almost indiscernible.

Tastes malty and sweet. Very drinkable, with a certain almost creamy smoothness, but not overt. The spicy and sweet smells are also incorporated in the taste in the same subtle manner, which is not to say at all there is not taste to this brew. As with some of their other brews, I'm feeling a leaning toward some fruitiness, a fruitiness which is trying to break out, but not quite getting there.

I could most definitely have a few of these and be content, not wanting anything more.

Pours an orangish caramel color with a nice head that is fast to fade away. Carbonation cannot be determined as the beer is a bit hazy due to the bottle conditioning. Smells of well balanced malts and citrus-type hops. Taste is hoppy up front with a hint of caramel malts that ends with a hit of the citrus hops from the nose. Mouthfeel is clean and crisp but perhaps a bit on the lighter side, not exactly a complaint. I often find Amber Ale to be neither one thing or another but Choc has pulled off a pleasant surprise. It is like they tweaked their Basement Batch by adding a bit more malt backbone, good.
