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.

I keep a keg in the garage and drink 2-3 beers each day. I like to drink with large swallows spaced about 5 minutes apart. Given these personal peculiarities, I enjoy this beer more than most

Had this one on draught at Brew Daze 2006. Copper colored pour, with a thin watery head, very little nose, caramel, chocolate and pronounced maltiness notes. Finished clean. Pretty good.

Steve_0 (2532) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2013
On tap at C.B. Potts Greenwood Village location. Pour is clear copper with a small white head and decent lacing. Bready, caramelly, slightly roasty aroma - lighter notes of grass, biscuit, and straw. Taste is lightly toasty, caramelly, malty, earthy, somewhat floral, grainy, and cereal with a light bitter finish. Medium body with low carbonation. This is not a bad amber at all.

Dradt taster at RAM, Schaumburg. Brown beer with plenty of light edges. No foam after I’ve gotten to it on the sampler tray. American hop notes finally come through my stuffy nose. Yet it’s the malt that leaves the first impression on my tongue. Followed by a tangy caboose of bitterness. Pleasing fruity esters keep the hops from taking over.

foyle (221) - Wyoming, USA - APR 22, 2014
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass Appearance: a sudsy off-white head slowly dissipates with nice lacing. Color is a deep amber with plenty of streaming carbonation. Aroma: rich roasted barley malt, a hint of coffee, some fruit and some mild herbal hops. Mouthfeel: light and watery, slightly astringent and a somewhat dry finish. Flavor: medium roasted barley, caramel, raisins, earthy and herbal bitterness. Overall: a pleasant and drinkable beer, represents the style well.

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.

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.
