This Belgian Amber Ale has toasty, biscuit-like malt flavors coasting in equilibrium with hoppy freshness while carbonation and light sweetness finish clean on the palate. ABV: 5.2% IBU: 18 SRM: 11.2

Pint can from Liquor Barn (Jefferson Commons); split four ways. Aroma: Immediately, this comes off as weird. It’s like spiced, sugary apple juice with a subtle reference to malts. Appearance: Murky orange copper color with a big carbonation pushing up bunches of sticky tan head. Flavor: Much like the aroma, but less malt reference and more apple juice spiced mess. The carbonation is totally over the top, and detracts from whatever this brewer was trying to do. Palate: Medium body, thick texture, overbearing carbonation and a long finish. Overall: Almost immediately poured out by all at the tasting... from the other ratings, I think we must have had a bad can, but wow; this was not pleasing on any level.

Pours a hazy ruby-copper color. Thin off-white head. Fruity aroma. Tastes a bit like a carbonated apple juice. Hints if a Belgian in the finish.

can @ Party Town (Friday Night Flights) / Florence KY --- Clear dark amber color, beige head cover, blobs and dots of lace. Taste is understated caramel malt that adds just a light edge of hops in the finish. Light taste, light body, barely hops. Maybe good on a hot afternoon.

Pours a hazy rusty orange-crimson with a fairly decent beige head that settles to a thicker ring and leaves some soapy splotches of lace. Nose involves caramel, toast, hay, faint Belgian spice, banana, vanilla cream, and cherry. Decently sweet, kinda bitter. Medium toward full bodied, pretty active, creamy, oily, yet somehow dull, with a toasty herbal and caramel finish. An ok beer, but not Belgian enough for me to print that on the label. Not flawed in any way, but not remarkable either.

Draft to taster at 450 North. Looks decent; a transparent burnt orange with no real lacing and soft carbonation. Smells of Belgian yeast with light spice and mild soap notes. Tastes like it smells with a bit of sweetness and an average mouthfeel. Eh.

Patrickctenchi (5433) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Growler: Nearly clear, amber brown...small, off-white head. Aroma is sweetly fruited, malty. Taste is much the same....sprightly fruit notes with a toffee-bready sweetness. Mild......TASTY.

Draft. Light cherry and barley malt aroma. Cloudy amber with small head. Sweet cherry, apple, and barley malt flavor. Light easy drinking beer.
