Had at Ashville BBQ Co. Cloudy red appearance. Decent head (although served in a plastic pint glass, yuk). Almost purple in color. Medium mouthfeel and fruity aroma and taste. Almost smells like lemon pledge.

Pours to a deep amber body with a 1 finger white/khaki head that disapates to a thin film. The brew has aromas of breads and floral hops. The flavor is really good for an amber. Light nutty floral breads. Sweet caramel. The palate is easy to drink.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma= Carmel, No roastiness, Citrus
Appearance= Amber, Strong tan head
Flavor= Mello and balanced, easy bitterness
moves slowly to malt side and eases of with subtle hops
Mouth feel= Medium low, it is fatter up front and finishes balanced and quick with only a touch of roastiness when closer to room temp
Overall= A pretty balanced beer and to style for American Amber, starts bigger and finishes light, makes me ask where did the beer go. No one characteristic stands out. = Average rating

A pretty good amber, IMO. The only gripes I have with this are alcohol level and a touch too sweet.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is the first beer rated of the night (when I was already partly blitzed, so the rest of the ratings are even less accurate, perhaps). That said, I normally am skeptical if a beer says amber, but this rises up to the challenge. It may be my favorite amber ale.

3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
No smell at all (I don’t know why; must’ve been my bottle). Taste was very very floral. Nice mouthfeel with a good, balenced amount of hops. Slightly sweet and bitter. Very complex.

Pours a, you guessed it, dark amber color, small white head, decent lacing suprisingly enough. Aroma is sweet, fruit, which i cant pick out specifically, Flavor is grassy hops, and sweet malt, very "earthy".
