big thanks to my buddy kent for grabbing me a growler during the (apparently) one-time, two-day holiday allowance for growler fills on this one.

poured cold and a bit too aggressively from a 12 day old growler a crisp translucent copper to a sun king shaped pint glass with a 2+ finger long lasting super foamy head with nice lace.

nice sweet malty aroma, slightly fruity after.

wow. big brown sugars way up front, dark caramels, subtle dark nuts and a hint of smokiness in the wayback.

big bodied, smooth and creamy, super sweet. great big malty beer.

drinkable - yep, very, however much you have.

Poured an excellent deep orange with some nice head and a bit of nice lacing. Great deep malty scents with caramel tinges and a bit of spiciness from the hops. Very nice flavors, with excellent crystal malts that gave it a great thick and sweet caramel flavor with hints of toffee, as well as a nice light spicy noble hop finish. Went down very well, if slightly thick. Had on tap at the Rathskeller, 20 ounce pour.

Got this in a growler from the brewery, drank about a week later.

A - Pours a decent head but it goes away to leave a little coating. This was my biggest problem with the beer. Could have been from the growler though.

S - Pretty much smells like a normal amber ale.

T - Great amber ale taste. Was a little weak out of the growler but still very good, but I think it was just the growler as the tasting was a bit better. Could and will drink a lot of this beer.

Really liked this one, another great Sun King brew.

Poured from a growler purchased today from the brewery in to a shaker glass.

A: Pours a translucent copper color with a creamy off-white head. Slight lacing down the side of the glass.
S: Caramel sweet smell that is "just about right."
T: Sweet tasting with some caramel in there. Nice fruity-sweetness to the aftertaste. That sweetness makes me want to keep on sipping.
M: Very smooth across the tounge. Very easy to drink.
O: Nice beer and reasonably priced for being one of Sun King's "Specialty" beers.
