Tmoney99 (10584) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 6, 2010
Draft sample at KBJ2010. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Suttree (5131) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 21, 2009
On tap at the brewery whilst waiting for our to-go pizza - turns out they don’t deliver to Knoxville. Dark caramel colored, with a thin tan head. Nutty, ever-so-slightly smokey aroma. Earthy malt flavors up front, with some caramel notes. Mildly bitter finish.

ChainGangGuy (4366) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - AUG 11, 2011
Appearance: Served up a clear, though quite dark amber-hued body with a thinnish, but lasting, white head. Smell: Pale malts, some inclusion of toasted bread and a sweetish caramel glaze paired with light notes of citrus fruit and herbs. Taste: A common start of pale, toasty, and caramel-minded maltiness. Medium-light sweetness throughout. Woodsy, lightly floral, lightly citrusy hops and bitterness. There’s a growing herbal, tea-like hint in the background. Bittersweet finish with a lingering spiciness. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: It’s pretty good, fairly drinkable, and likable for an amber.

unclemattie (4166) - Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2009
On tap @ Asheville Pizza. Lighter copper color. Creamy head. There was a problem with the lines which made this look like a nitro pour. This actually added to the character of this beer. Aroma has a bit of butter. Flavor is a light toasted malt. Sweet malt. Wooded hop. Sessionable. Tastes smooth and creamy.

Elwood (3079) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Serving: Draft. Appearance: Hazy amber with a small, white head. Decent lacing. Aroma: Caramel notes, lightly roasted malt, and a little grain. Taste: Caramel, a little bit of earthiness, a touch of nuttiness, light hop backbone, some toasted notes. Palate: Medium carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. Medium, malty finish. Overall: Pretty ho hum in the wide world of amber ales. Rebuy: Probably not. Just not that inticing.
