    This was not as good as I was expecting it to be. The beer is more of a reddish gold than an amber. The head was white, bubbly, and short lived. The aroma was sour vegetables, grainy malt, and apple. The flavour was more acidic than anything. There were hints of sweet malty tones, but not a lot.

    Dirty copper pour, next to no lhead or lacing. The aroma was of rotten cardboard and metal. The flavor was bready and caramel malt, metallic notes and some wet dog. Really, really fruity sweet with next to no hops to balance it out. Oily mouthfeel. Ugh, by far the worst of my Saint Arnold’s tastings to date.

    Slightly disappointed in this offering from st. arnolds. While they normally have good beer i belive that the sixer i got was old. It poured a nice looking body, nice head, decent lacing, good carbonation, it wasnt amber in color, more yellow. It smelled great, better than i expected with notes of pine almost floral. The taste was bitter, and slightly sweet. I will re-review this one again in a few months.

    One of the best beers I have ever had. It is honestly great for price. Pours amber with white head. Very floral aroma and taste. If you are in Texas, you have to try it. Worth every penny and them some.

    Saint Arnold is a very disapointing brewery. The brown was watery and lifeless and the Amber doesn't even really qualify as an amber in color. It's more like a golden with a reddish tint. The flavor is also really weak and lack the complexity of a good amber.

    On cask at Ginger Man in Dallas. What a waste of taking the trouble to put a beer in a cask and on a hand pump. Had a small white head. Had a light gold and amber colored body. The aroma was slight oranges. The taste was thin with apples and some sourness. Below average in every respect.

    Pours a cloudy and, you guessed it, amber color with a creamy, lasting head and good lacing. The aroma is bright and balanced with earthy malt and floral hops. Medium-body with stong carbonation. Surprisingly, there wasn't much malt in the flavor. Still, it was delicious--great bitterness and an almost minty finish. [My rankings were adjusted upward 8/24/05 after sampling this ale on cask at the Dallas Ginger Man. Truly great!]

    Sampled from bottle. Pours a light copper/amber with a lasting head. Mild, sweet malt aroma is followed by a hoppy (floral, pine), earthy and light caramel flavor. Well-balanced. An excellent example of the style.
