Bottle: Slightly cloudy, dark yellow, with a minimal white head. Aroma is light.....honey and lemon. Taste is the same, sweet.....with a nice carbonation, barley malt notes and a subtle lemon/grassy bitter and spice. Tasty....almost made me think I was drinking a kolsch.

DrSilverworm (8363) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 7, 2015
12oz bottle, purchased on 2/23/15 from Habersham in Savannah. Bottled 8/25/14. Mostly clear golden orange color, made mildly hazy with particles in the body. Off-white head, leaving good, thicker sheets of lace. Doesnít look like an amber ale... Should maybe be changed to a session IPA? Grassy, herbal, lightly spicy, mild bready malt, some citrus just a mild hint of brett I think, touch of oxidization in the nose (not too bothersome). Despite tasting a bit off, itís still a bright, refreshing session ale. Moderate bitter taste, kind of dry finish, lighter sweet. Lighter to medium body. Smooth, kind of soft moderate strength carbonation. A decent one to wash my sandwich down with. Significantly better fresh, Iím sure.

lladnar (4) - Owens Cross Roads, Alabama, USA - JAN 27, 2015 does not count
Very clear golden amber with a small head. Iím picking up some citrus maybe orange or apricot - some malt. A tiny bit of sweetness with some bitter on the backend. Not overly complex but sometimes thatís just what Iím looking for. Pretty good beer. I may pick up a six pack for the Super Bowl.

AleFart (13) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 17, 2015
6 pack in bottles. Picked it up because I liked the name. Not a bad little beer. Cloudy amber pour. Little lacing. Head goes away pretty quick. Almost a beginners Pale. Not that complex. I'll finish the six pack and will buy again. Like to find it on tap. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

harrisoni (15009) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle thanks to a colleague who brought this back from a holiday. Hazy gold lasting thin white head. Itís a pleasant pale ale with some citrus hops and some bitterness. Itís clean, perfectly fine and some peach and orange flavours. Very drinkable and a rather nice beer. Fresh tasting.

drowland (6771) - Georgia, USA - NOV 18, 2014
11/18/14. 12oz can. Almost clear orange pour, small frothy khaki head, very minimal lacing - looks fine, I guess. Not sure who decided this was an "amber ale" unless the brew has changed since itís creation. Musty, earthy, floral aroma, old hops, doughy pale malts. Oh boy. The flavor mirrors this almost too closely... ugh. Perfumey, floral, earthy, doughy, chalky, dusty. Really wish I had bought a single.

wedgie9 (2507) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 18, 2014
Tasted on 11/17/14 from a 12oz can purchased at Frugal MacDoogal. Pours hazy somewhat muted orange with an average white head that leaves average, bubbly lace. The nose is bread malt forward with a bit of earth, but is really all about caramelized orange peel. The flavor is caramelized orange peel and orange blossom honey up front, with a light, pleasant hit of bitterness, and plenty of the same bread malt from the nose. The body is light with a lightly sticky texture, average carbonation, and a medium lightly bitter orange peel, but primarily bread malt finish.
