Pours a golden-amber body with a lasting ring of beige head. Aromas of caramel, grain, and grass. Flavor is caramel, biscuit, yeast, copper. Finish is rather clean with a sweet note. Thin body.

For such a cool looking label design, this beer was a big letdown. More satisfying would have been spring water. This is as bad and as boring as Sweet Waters "Festival Ale" which I just rated. I actually only took a few sips of each at a tasting and cue instant headache. Amber color, nose is sour malts and gym socks from a 1980ís pastel green locker room. Taste is well, if not the same, certainly non existent. Someone call Woody up and have him put this zombie down properly, Zombieland style pleeeeaaaaaase.

Draft and too cold at Mellow Mushroom Huntsville. Not much nose. Taste is slightly hoppy with a bit of malt. Alcohol is barely evident. Overall just ok.

From my beer club. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium amber color with a medium sized foamy white head that produced a little lacing. The aroma was lightly bitter with notes of citrus and honey. The flavor was citrus, honey, nut, bread and vanilla. The finish was medium length bitter lemon and honey. Medium body. Ok.

Aroma is light hops and earthy. Taste is of dough and very light hops. Pours a nice light brown/medium yellow with a brownish white head. Weak carbonation. Overall not a bad beer.

Fairly generic amber ale. Not much to comment on. Amber with faint malt aroma. Hops are minor here and malt profile is nothing memorable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours orange-amber into the glass, with a lightly retentive soapy head that leaves light lace. A sweet caramel and toffee nose mixes with basement yeast notes. The flavors are somewhat malty, somewhat dry, with some light fruity citrus that leads into a semi-dry bitter finish. The mouthfeel is dampened with subtle carbonation and a semi-flat body. Just an "ok" amber ale, not completely devoid of substance, yet not an extremely complex offering.

Great hot weather easy drinking session a brew. Strong malt backbone throughout with an ample caramel overtone. Hops are brisk and fruity. Nicely balanced.
