Really perfect for the style. A light refreshing malty red or amber beer. NP seems to really focus on IPAs so I was questioning this beer. I had Siren when they first opened and it was not very good. Overcarbonated and even slightly sour. Possible dirty bottle or bad batch. I can see that other people in the past had similar experience. They seem to have figured it out. I thoroughly enjoy this beer. For a amber, I actually think the hopping is a bit high but it is balanced by the carmel sweetness. Easy drinking - could have a bunch of these at once. Nice transition beer that is perfect for what the style is. Well done. Glad I gave you the time to figure it out. Bottle was Dated in December of 2010 and very fresh.

Had on Jolly Pumpkin in Traverse City. Bartender poured into a pint.

Beautiful Amber color, with a a 2 finger creamy head.

Malty aroma with nice hop on the nose as well.

Taste was very well balanced, malt and hops. Nice subtle hop finish. This is not an unusual style, but it is a very well balanced amber with a significant hop.

Mouthfeel was nice and not too heavy. It is an easy beer to drink, and good for more than one!

This is not a challenging beer, but a really good and balanced beer that I will have again!

Nice, crisp amber color. Not much of a head. Just one smell has you knowing you're going to be in for something different. There is a ton of flavor in this Siren. Lots of malt, caramel, toasted bread, some hops in the finish. Big, round mouthfeel. There's a bit of a dry, bitter finish.

Tons of flavor, well balanced, and a bigger feel than you'd expect. A very good amber ale.

Picked up a single of these at Market District for 1.50. Good price to try something new from a brewery I've been reading about.

A - Rich amber, ruby color. Pours with almost no head, a quick white foam whisp that vanishes. Looks slightly thin.

S - Crisp, clean caramel malt with grassy sweet hops in the background. A pleasant, refreshing nose.

T - Clean caramel malt followed by juicy sweet hops with a twist of grass. Dies on the finish leaving a slight heat in the back of the mouth.

M - Thin, with very little carbonation.

O - Despiste it's faults it's a very drinkable amber ale particularly suited for hot summer afternoons due to the refreshing, clean sweetness.
