Not a bad amber. Pours dark amber with a lacy off white head. Has a bit of a funky aroma. The flavor has a touch of hops, caramel, and that yeasty funkiness. It's pretty smooth on the tongue. Not bad.

poisoneddwarf (1871) - Rathdrum, Idaho, USA - JUL 3, 2010
12 oz bottle into English pint. Thanks to Brenn79. Faint aromas of grain and some (??). Pours a pale copper hue with a quickly dissipating head and so-so lace. Taste is biscuity, nutty, some caramel malt, wet dog. Highly carbonated with a grainy aftertaste. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Very boring amber with nothing distinctive about it.

PorterPounder (5970) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 3, 2010
Tallahassee, Fl. - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, slight white bubbly head. Aroma is pretty much neutral with just a hint of fresh lake water. Flavor has a hint of spice, some faint caramel notes, and a bit of citrus to round it out. Decent bitterness. Mouthfeel is crisp and dry. Much better than its original name sake - which to this day sticks in my head as one of the most foul tasting beers I have ever put my lips to.

12 oz bottle from the CASK Brewclub Banquet. Lightly floral and lemony hop aroma. Mild amber ale flavor, with a bit of caramel, light hop flavor and a little bitterness at the end. Very little aftertaste. Mild throughout, but completely drinkable. Not bad, not memorable.

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.

coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUL 20, 2011
Draft. Poured light amber with a smallish white head. Aroma and flavor were mild, some bready malt, some citrusy, grassy hops. LIttle bit o’ honey, perhaps. Nice and drinkable.

TURDFERGUSON (4008) - 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.

Bottle. Pours a dark golden with a smallish head to it. There is some malty bitterness to the beer. A little heavy on the palate for my preferences. Not a lot to say about this one.
