This is now the amber by which I judge all others. Nearly perfect.
Pours crisply clear amber-red. Beautiful.
Kind of a lighty, fruit hoppy with a deep caramel scent. Maybe some biscuit as well. An ever so slight metallic tinge on the end.
Delicious, smooth maltiness when it first touches the tongue. This is followed by a broader, crisp bitterness and a bit os astringency. Very, very tasty.
Well carbonated, per the expectations of an amber, but supported by the silky-smooth malt character.
Very, very drinkable. Thank goodness this isn't cheap, or I'd be poor in the heat of the summer.
A very nicely done brew. Sure, I ranked it awfully high, but this is easily the truest and best amber I've ever had. I highly doubt that any other commercial brewers are doing such a solid amber. Damn!

Pours a murky brownish color and has a huge tan head. Impressive! It has a nice malty aroma with subdued hops on the nose. The flavor is superb... there is a nuttiness that is followed by a terrific hop bite. I think I am in love. It looks like a brown ale, smells like a brown ale and it certainly tastes like a top notch brown ale, but it is called a amber ale... go figure. All I know is that I like this beer a lot.

dry hopping is the key to its success. Not only did I taste the dry hopping but also smelled it as soon as I pour it into a glass. The body is beautiful, love rubby red color when put it under the light. as I have said, the dry hopping gives this beer so many characters to review, but they are all beyond my words. Drink it slowly and enjoy it.
