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.

The aroma is corn like and slightly toasted with butter, hay, and leaves. The appearance is light amber with a sudsy, medium head. The taste is like the aroma with a clean, yet slightly soapy, finish. The palate is average for the style. Overall itís not a bad beer but itís not really what I expect from an amber.

12oz bottle. Available on tap at any TacoMac. Copper color. Aroma of caramel malts, earthy hop nose. Well balanced flavor. Tastes of caramel malts, some bread. Finishes with a hint of pine, hops. Tastes like a rusty American Pale Ale. Its good! (3607)

Aurelius (4059) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 1, 2011
This gets an automatic one point appearance deduction for any association with the term "Laughing Skull". The namesake Bohemian pilsener was one of the foulest, and most memorably so, beers I have ever had. Clear plastic label, clear light brown beer with a big fluffy head. Light, slightly candied APA aroma. A little floral, a little toasted, citrus pith, lightly sweet. Not bad. Medium light body, lingering toasted and hoppy aftertaste. Market Square Liquors, Timberlane.

hotstuff (4058) - 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.

emacgee (3970) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Pours...not amber. Light straw gold with one finger of head. Nose is super ass-y, lots of biscuit and cloying honey notes. Wayyyyy too much of the biscuit malt in the flavor, like drinking wet grain. Lots of toasted malt flavors and bready notes. Medium body with a soft carbonation and hops like wet hay.

cheap (3968) - Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 8, 2012
Really nice presentation out of the glass. Big head never fades but goes craggy. Reminds me of orval for some. Wow that head looks so scrumtious. Lots of co2 in ther yummy. Taste has a nice bitterness that builds but never over the top. Sizzle really adds to the taste bud sensations. Good overall beery experience.

TURDFERGUSON (3945) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 3, 2012
Bottle. Drank from bottle, well about a third of it. Was hoping for a fairly fresh hoppy amber but this turned out to be fairly grainy and watery. Oh well.

Clear golden pour. Bubbly head. Aroma is corny and of vegetable oil. Flavor is slightly burnt and earthy. Not great.
