(12oz bottle thanks to Cavie) Color is somewhere between yellow and orange. Smells of mat syrup, bananas, roast. Maybe some sweet smoke. Tastes light herbal bitterness, some grapefruit pith, chalk.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2011
Cool label on the bottle, but this is an amber ale. Pours a light amber color with little head and grainy aromas. Flavor is similar... a kind of uninteresting amber ale with caramel malts and mild hops... kinda sweet... kinda sticky... kinda meh...

Cybercat (3277) - Georgia, USA - MAY 28, 2011
Pours a beautiful clear amber with a thick, yellowish, light tan head that sticks around - very appealing for any beer, and superior to nearly all amber ales. Aroma is crisp and malty with fruity and hoppy underpinnings. Pleasing flavor is mainly malty and has hints of fruit - mainly apple - and hops, with just a touch of bitterness. Texture is quite fizzy and lively. This is one of the best amber ales I’ve ever had. I have downed this before, but didn’t realize how good it is - maybe because previously I’ve had it only from a bottle.

I really wanted to like this beer. However, it smelled quite skunky, and felt like it coated the side of my tongue with nastiness. As far as style goes, it sort of matches an Amerocan Amber, apart from the off flavours.

Pours amber color with tan ead. Aromas of toasted malts and some caramel. Similar flavors. Pretty bland. Medium body with average carbonation.

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 10, 2011
12 oz bottle that pours a hazy orange with an enormous foamy off white head (so much head that I had to let the glass sit for a bit to pour the rest of the bottle into the glass) that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma of lemon, apricot, honey and caramel malt. Taste is apricot, honey and caramel malts. Very carbonated - medium body. Okay brew but nothing outstanding for sure.

elgiacomo (745) - Ringgold/Fort Oglethorpe, Georgia, USA - MAY 9, 2011
12oz bottle, I forget the date but a fresh sample.

Pours clear light amber with a two finger off white head that leaves nice cobwebs of lacing and holds a small cap.

Aroma is pretty typical for an Amber, a little fruity, a little caramel, a little nutty, some light floral and grassy hops. Good strength.

Flavor is caramel malt, light fruits, light citrus hops, somewhat sweet, moderate bitterness, little to no alcohol.

Mouthfeel is on the light side of medium, a bit oily, medium carbonation.

A solid Amber Ale, but nothing spectacular.

At a tiny tasting in my home, bottle, in opening of the bottle exited smoke, pours cloudy bright orange with a very small head that dissipates quickly, nicely carbonated, fruity, hoppy and sweet aroma, dry, bitter, slightly smoked and twist aftertaste, medium noticeable body, and overall an excellent beer.
