The appearance was a slight clear amber color with a slight transparency about it. One finger white foamy head dissipated within less than about forty seconds. Light lacing trickles into its body. The smell was a sweet caramel malt with a slight crisp citrus hops underneath. The taste was balanced between the sweet malts and the bitter citrus hops. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a slight sessionability about it. Carbonation seemed decent for the style and for me. Overall, I say this was a decent Amber ale I could go at again.

I was surprised to find this listed as a “red ale” as I would consider it more of a pale ale with extra hoppiness. It pours a nice light amber color with a good two finger head and moderate lacing. A little bitter with good carbonation. You can really taste the barley and hops. A good refreshing summer beer.

Amber beer pours an amber color, prolly a slight bit darker than your average SRM for style. Dropped good clarity and a head over a full inch.

Taste dropped some nice c hops with the amber malts. Plenty of caramel, slightly above average hopping for style. More than just bitterness, imparts some woodsiness hop flavor. Above average overall. Bitter, lively carbonation that keeps it from seeming too malty like some reds/ambers can do.

Color is a true Amber. The smell is just perfect, with the malt and hops both subtly present, but not overwhelming. The taste is just lovely: as you'd expect with a west coast beer, the hops is present, but it doesn't overwhelm. So complex. Just a great beer.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a copper color with a small white head. The aroma is fruit and caramel malt. The taste is malt and fruit. A good beer.

Clear amber pour with a one-finger off-white head. Aroma of caramel and bread. Taste has a caramel sweetness and light malt upfront. Can also taste an earthy bitterness.
