hotstuff (3901) - Indiana, USA - APR 3, 2014
Rated on 3-25-2011 (Bottle purchased at Total Wine & More-Ft. Myers, FL) This beer has a large frothy, fizzy beige head with a lengthy retention, transparent amber body, fast rising carbonation, and soapy looking lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, bready, suggestion of citrus, earthy hops, sweet, spicy, and light fruitiness. The taste is lightly bitter, light citrus hops, caramel malt, and bready. The mouthfeel is tingly carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This is just an ok beer for me as it does not have a lot of character to speak of and the flavor was semi-bland.

chinchill (1364) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 10, 2014
On tap at the brewery in 2011 (from notes). Crystal clear orange, amber, with a small, near-white head. Nice medium toasted malt aroma. Some citrus hops appear upon tasting. Medium body with good carbonation. A tasty beer that could serve as a good introduction to craft brews.

Nero55 (455) - Leeds, Alabama, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Draft. Amber with small white head. Aroma of sweet fruit (raspberries) and caramel. Light body that is very sweet throughout, fruit, and some stale notes (cardboard).

Malaclemys (226) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Draft pours burnt copper with frothy white head. Aroma of caramel, raspberry, malt, doughy. Taste is fruity, alcohol, solvent, sweet up front with a bitter sweet finish. Very light body along with aromas and flavors and seemed to have an off flavor of acetone.

This is a dark amber with a very good and complex taste. Not to mention the bottle looks pretty sweet. One of my favorite amber beers I have ever had.

Jndubbs (120) - Austin, Iowa, USA - DEC 24, 2013
Bottle. Hoppy smell, smooth super light amber taste with no aftertaste. So light it almost doesn't exist. Boring.

zoelester (23) - Stockbridge, Georgia, USA - DEC 23, 2013
I love this beer. Its a great taste with not much head when poured. I highly recommend.

Imaena (1701) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Draught in little 5. This is a thin amber without anything going for it. Switch to a better brew.
