Fits the appearance of an amber to a T. Amber hue, finger-width head, light lacing. Smell is wheaty and malty. Caramel, toffee, bread, crackers, faint dry hops and hay.

Ambers are a guilty pleasure of mine, but I am pretty particular with them when it comes to taste. This one has a nice balance that I enjoyed. Not overly malty like some tend to be, with the hops coming through just enough to balance things out. Nice doughy, bready, cracker character held up by the hefty but not overbearing malt backbone.

Straight shooting amber.

Pretty drinkable amber with decent flavors but everything going on for this beer is pretty muted/watered down. Not enough malt heft, not particularly roasty, not really hoppy or anything, just ok all around.

5.4% per the label.

Pours a hazy copper with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Tiny particles of sediment are seen suspended in the beer after the pour. Smell is of malt, caramel, earth, and citrus fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with slightly tart malt, earth, caramel, and citrus fruit flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop and earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an above average beer with a solid aroma, but the slight tartness in the taste is a bit odd to me.

Serving type: bottle.

Lovely foamy pour with a very handsome red amber color. Pleasant grainy smell. Sudsy and lively on the tongue. Malty with a distinct roasted flavor.

I wouldn't say this will enliven the Amber Ale category, but it's perfectly drinkable. It has that herbal, slightly dirty hop taste that is not my favorite, but it seems like the classic Amber taste.

Scratchy, dark bitterness for the finish. Woody notes. Resiny taste in the back of the throat. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Whidbey Beer Works in Oak Harbor, Wash. for $5.50.

A very random grab while in Tampa, FL last month. Kept in fridge for the last few weeks.

A- The tallboy can pours out a dark red, mostly clear ale. A foamy cap builds up to just under one finger. Decent head retention as it dies to a medium belt at the edges. Plentiful lace in the form of sheets.

S- Heavy malts produce most of the aromatics for me with plenty of caramelized notes. A high dose of toast and roast grains join that. Hints of pine and citrus hops secondary to that with something slightly metallic.

T- Firstly, whatever was metallic goes away here for me. The hops brighten up some with more pine and orange peel hints coming out. Caramelized crystal grains make up most of the flavor with nutty, toasty and some roast tones adding to the malt profile.

MF- Medium bodied, perhaps just a bit above that, with a creaminess on the palate. Carbonation is on the high side with a moderately bitter finish.

Takes a bit of time to balance out on the palate but in the end it finds a decent balance between caramelized malts and citrus hops with some pine in there. Tastes oxidized and slightly metallic at times but it seems to go away with time.
