Emigration Amber - served in 16oz hybrid glass, the beer is a chill hazed dark Amber with a fluffy beige head.

Nose of caramel malts and pine. I was pleasantly surprised by the hops in the aroma.

The taste is decent with a nice interplay between the ingredients. It is slightly sweet and a touch nutty with lightly roasted malts. There is some nice pine and citrus in the backend.

The mouth is decent, would love to see a little more heft, but given Utah's draft laws, the brewer has done well.

Very enjoyable Amber here.

a good amber, more in the english style, and not nearly as good as their organic amber, but still solid. pours a nice rich brick red and caramel blend color with a 2 inch white head from the pitcher. smells like red malts, dusty and sweet, with some bittering hops. flavor is biscuity malts, not sweet at all really, but bready. fairly hoppy crispness on the back end. lots of flavor. feel is perfect for the bold flavors, plenty of carbonation and e fuller medium body that maintains its drinkability pint after pint. at 4% this is as close to an ideal session beer as there is out there, but i still dont think its as good as the organic amber. overall a good one to try, or to sit out back and hammer all day.

First had: on tap at Squatters, Salt Lake City Airport

An average amber ale offering. Hey, I was just delighted to see a brewpub waiting for me as soon as I got off the plane for my layover from Seattle.

Poured into an over-sized mug, a clear amber color with a moderate white cap of head that eventually receded to a thin collar. Aroma of sweet caramel malts and citrusy hops. Taste follows the smell, with smooth caramel malts up front, balanced by a modest infusion of subtly citrus hops. Medium mouthfeel, smooth, and non-threatening, make for an average, but drinkable, brew.

On tap at the downtown SLC brewpub. From notes.

A: Pours a clear amber in the glass. Nice foamy head that retains moderately, lapsing into a thin film on top of the brew. Foam lacing down the sides.

S: Caramel, mild pine.

T: Caramel is strongest. A slight grapefruit kick in the mid-taste. Pine in the finish.

M: Medium bodied, good carbonation, a clean and almost crisp finish.

D: This was fairly decent and I wound up getting more of it later. Paired very well with the spicy dish I was having. But in the grand scheme of things, a pretty subpar brew.

From the cask at the downtown Squatters pub this amber poured a clear root beer/coffee color with a thick light tan head and good lacing. The aroma was a solid floral and citrus hops, sweet like raspberries almost, very nice. The taste came on as mild citrus with a little skunkiness. Easy drinking, plenty bitter. Nice mellow feel. Cask beers often come up funny in flavor to me but this had potential that just fell a little short. Definitely worth a try but I enjoyed the Captain's Oatmeal Stout more on this night.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Amber as advertised, with an attractive cream colored mousse with excellent lacing that looked like leopard spots.

Smell: I really enjoy the flowery aromas of cask ales, and this one didn't dissapoint. A little pine and a tad sweet.

Taste: Mild roasted sweetness/caramel with a pleasant hop finish, for a low ABV Beer it had plenty of character which made it very easy to drink. This was the best draft Beer I had in Salt Lake City.
