4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Crystal clear, copper color, great head retention and good german lace. A nicely done amber. Not too sweet as most ambers that I have tried. Very crisp and clean. With a nice hop aroma and balanced mouthfeel. I would almost consider this a pale with the amount of hops. I loved it

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy copper pour, big head, lots of lace. Low alcoholic aroma. Smokey caramel flavor, with some piny alcohol also. Low carb, but compliments the beer. A nice sweet caramel, with a slight earthy smokiness. Good, not quite as good as the Horny Toad.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Have tried this several times since the brewery launch, and it has improved each time. Early versions pour reddish brown with an off white head, with a moderate malt aroma and light fruity note. The first taste brings chocolate to the forefront, with a mild carbonic bite, but this beer has developed over time and is more subtle and complex, with better balance between malt, hops and carbonation. Any sweaty socks character (Hbuck72) had to be an anomally at the tap bar, becasue I have tasted this numerous times and never experienced any real off flavors. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel - one of my tap brew favorites. BREW!!!

UPDATED: MAR 31, 2009 Wow this beer was a disapointment! I had it from McNellies in OKC, and it really tasted like old socks! I was shocked! it looked good, had a decent aroma and head. However it has a very harsh finish, and a horrid gym-sock like after taste.
I have heard a lot of good things about this brewery, and I will try some of their other beers. Very well could have been something on the bars end that caused the taste, maybe dirty lines or glass.

Mmmmm....quite the delicious amber. Not as sweet as some ambers, and the flavor profile is a bit different, but it definitely creates a unique amber. Notes of biscuit, caramel and herbal hops on the nose. The flavor is delicious, with chocolate, roasted malt and toffee, followed by a hint of hops. Overall a great session beer, or just a great beer to enjoy on a cool fall night.
