This beer is mellow. To mellow. For an amber with a stinging name there is no bite.

Pours a beautiful crystal clear copper, with a thin light head. The aroma is a subtle caramel. It has a light body for an amber ale but a crisp roasted flavor compliments the sweetness. I can imagine this beer being served with a hearty meat (something salty) , without the beer filling you up.
Pretty unique!

A great surprise. Visitors brought this back from Arizona. I usually don't drink any brew less than 8%, but this was exceptional. If I like a beer that is 5.5%, it has to be good.

I've been getting into Mudshark over the last few months and decided to give this one a try. This beer pours a deep shade of amber and has a toasty, slightly hoppy and caramel like smell to it. It was exceptionally smooth, went down very easily and was disappointed I had only bought one to try. Mudshark has been impressing me recently with their great tasting beers and this one is no exception. Anyone who's looking for a delicious amber ale or even just something new should definitely give this beer a shot.

This beer has apparently been "brought back" and was on tap February 2011 at Mudshark in Lake Elsinore.

Pours a light copper with a white head. Medium body with decent balance and carbonation. Flavors are of light simple toast, light carmel. Simple but decent and clean. Finish is a light simple bitter roasted grain, light coffee bitter. An all around light and easy brew. Nothing special but not a bad beer.
