Drank from a 12 oz bottle. An interesting amber. I'm not sure if the sour taste I'm experiencing is burnt caramel or oxidation from age. Not my favorite. Maybe it's better on tap. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Clear medium-dark amber with a nice 1/4" head that lasts awhile, and splotches of lace. Taste is mainly caramel malt with a minimum of sweetness, followed by carbonation and a touch of hops at the finish. Not complicated, not memorable, but entirely drinkable.

From a bottle poured an amber color with a small amount of head. Light malty hoppy flavor with a quick finish.

Good bready smell. Taste is initially creamy medicinal and licking sweet. More personality than a lager fer sure. has a few rude ale characteristics. Same on finish; almost cloying.

Aurelius (3890) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 27, 2012
Candied, woody APA/Amber aroma. Almost-clear, woody amber, good bottle cap, decent label, twistoff. A little bland and starch-watery, not very bitter, nutty sweetness. Meh, fair. ABC Betton.

drowland (5953) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - APR 20, 2012
4/20/12. 12oz bottle. Clear light amber pour, almost a bit orange, with a thick, creamy khaki head that cuts but lingers and laces in rings. Mild aroma of toasted bread, caramel, and grains. Plain, but unoffensive. Sweeter flavor up front with plenty of caramel which transfers into fresh bread and a bit of a fruity/floral aspect. Not bad.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2012 This is an enjoyable amber. Nice caramel malty aroma and a clear red appearance with a soft white head. Taste mirrors the aroma and appearance. Notes of cereal and bread with a slight caramel sweetness. Drinkable session amber.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma of toasted malts, brown sugar, nuts, tea, caramel, and a hint of earthy hops. Flavor is pretty much the same, with caramel and toasted malts, brown sugar, earthy hops, and nuts. Light-bodied, with a toasty, dry mouthfeel and low-medium carbonation. Nice.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle is clear red with thin white head, aroma brought notes of caramel some slight grass and grainy notes to it, hints of biscuit, yeast, some spice as well. Taste is pretty caramel forward, hints of spice and grass, touch of yeasty notes finishing fairly clean, slight hop bite as well.

Lemke10 (678) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 11, 2012
I had this on-tap at Wedges in Janesville, WI for $3 in early 2012. Pours a semi-cloudy amber color with about an inch of a frothy white head. Scent of toasted malts and caramel malts. The taste is mostly of toast malts that are slightly crisp and bitter mixed with some hints of citrus as well. Finishes with a slight dry after taste. Definitely much better than I was expecting. An overall great amber brew!
