Bottle. Murky amber pour with a small foamy white head. Malt bomb right off the bat. Slightly dusty and herbal as well. Not bad.

On tap @ the brewery in Hudson. Pours a bit hazy golden orange appearance with a light brown head. Grapefruit citrusy, light caramel, toasty aroma. Somewhat floral, kind of bready yeasty, potpourri, herbal bitter flavor. Bleh.

Bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a hazy dark amber with a half finger of off-white head. Aroma of caramel and toffee with a decent hint of citrus. Taste is all malt. Caramel and toffee with a hint of skunk. Full bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation but a decently long finish. Overall, not bad. Nothing super special but enjoyable.

Bottle from Skyview, thanks! Amber with a medium off-white skyline. Aroma is a touch weird with toasted malt, floral hops and some soap and skunk. Taste is slightly sour with caramel, mild fruit and toasted malt. Sudsy and forgettable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Unfiltered glowing orange-red body. Thin, steady, oily whtie head. Sweet amber malt all the way. Cherry vanilla. A pretty decent Amber, does the style pretty well. Not much real hop character to speak of, maybe some mild Fuggles or something in the background. A touch undercarbonated. OK, average malt forward Amber.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle at Casanova Liquors in Hudson, WI. Pours a semi-clear copper brown colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some spotty lacing and a thin white film top. Aroma of caramel malt, some citrus and light grassy hops, a touch of dark fruit skin and light toffee. Taste is medium bodied, some toasted softer carbonation than their regular Tailgunner Gold with flavors of toasted Munich and caramel malts, a touch of apple skin, light brown sugar and toffee. Finish has a mild dry biscuity and caramel malt aftertaste followed by a short lived spice hop bite.

Pretty middle-of the road amber ale right here. Slight breadiness and earthiness.
