blipp (6495) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber with an off white head. Malty sweet and bready aroma. The flavor has some light sweetness, with bready, earthy, and toffee notes. Not bad.

hopscotch (9820) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle… Lightly hazed amber ale with a mountainous, frothy, white head. Great retention. It took me a full ten minutes to pour this into my glass without the head breaching the top of my glass – not a good sign. The aroma provided caramel, biscuit and a moderately woody, acidic funk – a suggestion of key lime peel. Medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. Based on the flavor and the size of the head, there’s definitely an infection taking root, but it doesn’t create an offensive beer. The mild tartness actually adds some character and interest to an otherwise bland, boring example of a bland, boring style. Finishes tangy and lightly sweet.

RobertDale (3854) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - NOV 7, 2011

nuplastikk (4820) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 3, 2011
12oz bottle. Pale orange-tan with a steady, frothy head. Dry cherry amber malt and piny citrus hop aroma. A pretty respectable Amber Ale. Solid hop backbone shows. Subtle vanilla tones, not unlike Dead Guy. On the fuller side of medium bodied. OK, well balanced.

burg326 (4124) - Florida, USA - NOV 1, 2011
12 ounce bottle that pours a light orange/amber color with aromas of resin, caramel, and earthy aromas. Flavor follows suit, an ok sipper for the Florida heat.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2011
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from True Vine. It pours pours a light amber orange with a small, foamy, white head. The nose has light malt and toast notes. The flavor is pretty one dimensional with some flabby toast and very light, stale hop notes. Thin body with some lingering malt on the palate. A very middle of the road amber ale.

nearbeer (3933) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 28, 2011
12 oz. Clear, pale copper with a lasting ring of foam. Nose is grain, sourish caramel apple, light resin. Flavor is mostly caramel and apple, with light citrus and toasted pecan on the finish. Light-medium body is sweetish, a little hop-tingly, and lightly carbonated. This isn’t half-bad, as an American take on an English Bitter.
