Draft sample. Poured a ruby color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting and had excellent lacing. Good toasted caramel malt and hop aroma. Medium body with smooth texture and soft carbonation. Moderate balanced smooth flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good soft brew.

Sampled at Fat Headís - Clear red in color with an average head and a lot of lacing. Has a sweet malt taste and a thin mouthfeel. Has an ok finish but definitely not my favorite of all that I tried.

on tap 6 June 2012, Good ruby color, but thats about it.. this is bland and boring to me, there is a touch of sweetness as you first sip it, but other than that its almost too balanced, I need some flavor here.

Aroma: Light caramel and toasted malts, but very faint. Appearance: Dark red amber with a thick, creamy head. Taste: Medium sweetness, with a light bitterness in the finish. Palate: Medium body with a lively carbonation, crisp texture, and a long, dry finish. Overall: Very nice--Iím not blown away, but a very quaffable and enjoyable beer.

baraciisch (1530) - USA - JUL 5, 2010
Not much aroma... Flavor was not terribly exciting, not as hoppy as the west coast varieties Iíve had, kind of boring and not memorable, Fat Headís worst...

Dogbrick (7244) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 29, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2010 Sample at the brewpub. This beer is a clear dark reddish-amber color with a medium foamy light beige head that dissipates steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Malty aroma with mild hops behind it. Medium body with flavors of roasted malt, hops and caramel. The finish is malty with a short and sweet aftertaste. Just average overall.

kramer (4688) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 24, 2009
Tap @ Fat Headís. Pours a clear dark copper body with a small off-white head. Lightly grainy and hoppy nose with a touch of fruitiness and caramel. The flavor is a bit thin with toasty malt and a light bitterness. Husky finish. Light bodied and fizzy, itís also a bit coarse. Overall itís just the average brewpub Amber offering.
