Finally a local beer from Decatur! Let’s see if it can contend with the mainstream craft beers... Appearance: amber/red, typical frothy head, nice lacing Flavor: Mildly biscuity, light malty nutty flavor. It is a good red/amber with a lot of flavor, surprising for only 4.5%. Not at all like an ’American’ red ale with too much hops. Something is unique about the aftertaste and bitterness... the malt / bitter is so balanced that neither becomes apparent by itself - perfect harmony! Very impressed. Palate: Mild, long, and delicious! Awesome taste, very sessionable. Glad I got to try this - it’s probably one of the best red/amber ales I’ve ever tasted. It’s hard to deny this beer room in my fridge from the growler shop. Need to find it around more places in Atlanta!

So, it a session amber? Isn’t that kind of redundant? I mean, I just usually assume an amber is a session ale, unless they call an "Imperial Amber" or something goofy like that. Anyway, this was a little malty, with hints of toast and chocolate, and and subtle, woody hops.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a reddish brown color with a giant thick tan head. The aroma is hops and malt. The taste is a heavy on grain and has a metallic aftertaste. If the metal taste was removed it would have a much higher score.

12 ounce can. Amber red in color. Lots of caramel notes. Ok overall, but nothing too amazing.

Sample at the brewery. Nice, cloudy ruby-brown color, with crap-tons of foam (but that was probably the idle tap line, not the beer). The nose is bready malts, black tea, and caramel. The flavor is malty, but relatively dry, with not much hop bitterness, and a touch of roastiness. Medium body, grainy, and thick. This is a nice, easy Irish ale. Great malt character, and a unique flavor.

chinchill (4207) - South Carolina, USA - APR 12, 2015
On tap. Hoppy for style, like a red APA. Nearly as hoppy and bitter as an IPA. O too bitter for style, especially in the aftertaste.

Draft at the source. Beautiful golden amber color, thick tan head. Nice aroma of fruit and nuts. Taste is toasted fruity caramel. Nice.

Dark. My pour really cloudy. Pour before was clear. Nutty. Toasted nuts. Not a lot of hops. Could be a touch old.
