BrettTaylor (472) - Radford, Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2013
From a bottle. - pours a light copper color, thin head, moderate lacing. Aroma is minimal, hints of burnt toffee. Mouthfeel is thin, tastes burned, some malt Nd a light bitter finish. This is fairly unpleasant to my palate.

bottle @ Habersham Beverage / Savannah GA --- Hazy dark amber, good cream head cover, strips of lace. Taste is heavy malt and dark fruit spread on toast, finishing with a modicum of hops. Swallow sits hard in the stomach, leaving a chalky residue on the tongue. I expected better.

glennmastrange (2240) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Bottle. Moderate nutty and cereal for the malt, light to moderate herbs for the hops, light dough for the yeast, with a background note of brown sugar. Head is huge frothy/creamy turning rocky, off-white with thick yet slippery lacing and is fully lasting. Color is clear dark amber. Flavor starts lightly to moderately sweet and acidic, then finishes slightly sweet and acidic and lightly to moderately bitter. Palate is on the lighter side of medium, watery with fizzy carbonation. I wasn’t expecting much for the commercialized name and label but this actually a pretty good Amber Ale.

djd07 (3468) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 7, 2014
Bottle as shown. Pours a cloudy amber with small frothy beige head that lasts. The aroma is dark fruits and caramel. Bready malt and caramel with sweet finish. Decent.

At the vortex. No aroma. Malty toasty average beer. Good easy beer flavor beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jhliesen (719) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle--well, it looked good, nice copper color with a small head, but that’s where the good stuff ended. Something like a malt aroma hit you in the nose. The taste was like the color, copper. None of the sweetness of caramel that was expected. High carbonation. Petty’s 1.99

desurfer (1212) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Draft at WOB Viera. Medium amber body with little head. Mostly sweet maltiness and a bit thin on the tongue. Not bad but pretty forgettable.

Tap from Lazy Dog. Pours a darker amber with a ring of cream colored head. Aroma and taste of malts and not much else.

Bottle from Ale Yeah! Hazy amber with frothy white head. Aroma of bread, citrus and hops. Taste of bread and bitter hops. Bitter and tangy aftertaste. Lots of carbonation. It’s okay

A bittersweet malt, literally. Taste is: sweet caramel malts, bready, bitter, with some fruit. Pours a nice head. Good beer to try for those getting used to bitters
