COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The most complex of our beer line-up with a combination of five different malts and four different hop varieties. Buttface has the broadest popular appeal of our beers. It has a high malt character and lack of evident hops. This surprises people because it is easy to drink, but has a higher alcohol content than what is perceived.

Caramel, sweet and just slightly hoppy notes. Medium amber color with little head. Sour flavor, slides down fast with little aftertaste. Hints of coffee.

JoshuaB (474) - Detroit, Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2005
Draft: Pours a caramel orange with some white head. Aroma is mostly malt, with some citrusy hops to it. Taste was sweeter than expected, but showed tons of malt character with some yeastiness qualities to it. Nice carbonation and mouthfeel. One of the better Amber’s I have had.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUL 23, 2005
On tap at Humperdink’s Addison, TX. Pours honey-gold, like a nice glass of whisky. Aroma has hints of chocolate and malt. Medium-bodied mouthfeel. The flavor is more reminiscent of an IPA than an amber, but it still retains a nice toast flavor with a decent balance between the sweetness and the sourness.

Tap @ 16th Colorado Brewfest. Pours caramel to maple with a tiny tan head. Caramel malt and toffee aroma with a hop nose. Chocolate caramel malt flavor. Medium bodied and creamy palate.

OutHouseDilemma (70) - Crowley, Texas, USA - JUN 2, 2005
Draft in Alrington, TX This was one of the best brews of the night out of the 8 beers I tried. Really has no new taste that grabs me, tastes like most ambers.

Tmoney99 (10585) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2005
Draft in Indy. Dark amber color with average off-white head. Aroma and flavor was a medium malt and caramel. Medium to full body with small sweet finish. Matchs style well.

I thought they served me another "Big Red" judging by the deep coppery brown color. Aromas gave it away... without a hop presence, but a slightly yeasty, caramel malted quality. All-malt flavor was sweet to the point of cloying. Medium-bodied with a syrupy texture.

leitrim65 (402) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 27, 2004
On tap at the Ram in University Village, Seattle. Dark tawny color with virtually no head. The nose is a combination of caramel and nutty malt. Soft, but not too complex, and lacking of anything but malt flavors. Decent but boring.

JoeM500 (1905) - Crown Point, Indiana, USA - NOV 22, 2004
On tap at RAM, Schaumburg,IL: Darker almond color with a thin fizzy head that disappears almost as soon as she puts the pint down. Graininess, as far as malts go, some bitter hints at the finish, but overall it’s a bland and nearly tatsteless beer.
