COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We decided to rebel against the status quo when we created our amber. We took a Belgian Abbey Single, upped the ABV, added some rye malt, and created a complex, yet very easy drinking, ale. Grab a sample and let us know what you think.

drpimento (2395) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Served kind of cold, with a small, creamy, light tan head that slowly settled and plenty of sheeting lace. Color is a clear, darker amber with plenty of bubble trails. Aroma is a very mild malt, fruit, yeast. Flavor is like nose, sweet in front followed quickly with carbonic tang and then some bitter and not much else. Body and carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, on the short side, and very drinkable if non-descript. Though, according to style, the Belgian Singles are likewise understated - so - they score points here in that way.

2/26 (Bottle) - Decent pour, smelled of toffee and caramel. Poured light, reddish brown coloured with a short tan head. Taste was light, not much texture, and easy going down. Good light tasting beer for a meal.

[Tap] Dull amber color with a soapy white head on top. Notes of toffee, sweet breads and molasses in the nose. Flavors are pretty sweet and grainy. More toffee, residual sugars, light yeast notes and bready flavors. Kind of one-dimensional. Tasting notes from Big Blue Craft Beer Festival in Sheboygan on 10/18/14.

JonnyMadison (68) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 12, 2014
Bottle. Seems very thin and watery. Flavor is sweet, toffee, with a pleasant carbonation and smoothness. Was expecting something different. Not bad, and certainly got better after the first taste, but still a little weak all-around.

BVery (7442) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle. Slightly murky orange-amber pour with a small soapy head. Nice aroma of Belgian yeast and toffee. Comes off a little simple / artificial / thin on the tongue though - not bad, just not terribly good either.

sawbuck (401) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Aromas of sweet breads, sweet candy, and a hint of plum. Amber orange in color, white head is thin. Sweet malt hits you first. Sweet candied fruit is next. Bitterness is dry and one dimensional. Mouthfeel is watery, and finsihes with an even bitterness. Interesting style...average beer.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2014 Bottle to shaker. Certainty not what I was expecting from the description, although to be fair i wasn?t sure what to expect. Copper orange pour. Creamy head. Clean and clear. Typical American amber profile with just a bit more bitterness. Nice.
