Dogbrick (7971) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2014
On draught at Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse. Clear amber color with a medium white head that diminishes steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt, caramel and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of earthy malt, caramel and slight hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Average overall.

Left Hand Path, Brooklyn tap: Pours amber with a white head. Aroma is caramel malt and a little bit of hops. This is basically a very easy-drinking amber ale with some light hoppage thrown in. There is nothing offensive about it, but nothing very interesting either.

drowland (5996) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Sampled during CBC 2013. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Plain aroma, some nuts and toffee, light cracker if you search. Malty flavor, light nuts and toffee, bitter edge, caramel and bread. Not awful.

AirForceHops (3115) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 22, 2013
6 oz. taster @ EBC. Color is clear amber. No head. I had to struggle to get any aroma… no aroma at all. The flavor is weak at best. Roasted caramel malts and floral, or grassy hops. Light in body with a watery mouthfeel.

It’s a tasty ale and one of my local brewpubs gets alot of Empire Breweing Company on tap so I was glad to try it. A nice blend of hops and malt and a nice amber color.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2012 I asked for something dark and this is what they gave me. Good thing I liked it or I would?ve walked out. A solid, tasty ale can really hit the spot when you want a beer and this one does just that. Recommended.
