drowland (5960) - 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.

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.

On draught at the International Great Beer Expo in Uniondale. Pours amber with an off-white head. Mild aroma of malt, nuts and some weak citrus. The flavor is equally timid malt and nuts followed by some mild-moderate hops bitterness. No problems, but not very interesting either.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Light sweet malty aroma with some floral hoppy notes. The flavor has sweet and toasty malts with light floral hops. Pretty good.
