(12oz bottle thanks to Cavie) Color is somewhere between yellow and orange. Smells of mat syrup, bananas, roast. Maybe some sweet smoke. Tastes light herbal bitterness, some grapefruit pith, chalk.

nearbeer (3428) - 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 isnít half-bad, as an American take on an English Bitter.

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.

Bottle from Old Town Liquor Store, Kissimmee, Florida. This dark amber-brown beer has a rich malt and caramel flavour, chocolate notes and a nutty, roasted finish.

Thanks to Tony from OTH for the share. Pours amber with an off-white head. Nose is some malt with a decent amount of hops, some bready malt, and bitterness. Flavor is similar. Solid amber... good starter, wears its heart on its sleeve.

Pours amber with notes of light hops. The flavor offers more malt and deeper senses of hops. shows a bready quality and a nice smooth finish.

Holy lord, these asshats brought back this beer?! This is like bringing Michael Bolton out of retirement, itís a bad idea or is it? Let me give it a shot. The first version of this was a slightly crappy pilsner/lager deal but this is an amber ale. The appearance is an amber color with a moderate head. The aroma contains some caramel, citrus, a bit of pine, and sweat. Yes the sweat lives on. The flavor has got a tiny bit of unwanted funk but then the slight hoppy flavors kick in. A nice malt balance to the hops as well. Overall this wasnít bad at all. Iíd do it for a cheap sixer if Iím bored in the ATL. Real bored but still.......

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2010 Bottle. Beer of the Month club. Clear deep golden to amber with a huge, short-lasting, shaving-foam-like head. Aroma of floral and citric hops and some biscuity, slightly caramelly malt. Flavor starts with some sweetish chewy biscuity malt and some fruitiness and continues on to a pleasant hoppy bitter finish with some notes of citrus and grass. Medium-bodied. A decent refreshing Amber Ale.
