COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoppier than its English cousins this American amber ale will have you saying “Jolly good show” when the maltiness rolls across the palate and locks fingers with the spicy hop finish. Hopped to the top end of the style, Flat12’s amber ale maintains its composed American character throughout. ABV: 5.8% IBU: 42.7

12 oz. bottle in trade with Fletche00. Brown color, with a medium, tan head. The aroma is molasses, resin, light coffee, and orange rinds. Light roasty sweetness and a pretty good hop bitterness. Medium body, chalky, sticky, and a little astringent. Overall, this is nice, over-hopped amber.

DrSilverworm (8563) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2013
12oz bottle, thanks to caterwaul. Clear red color, slightly orange, mostly red. Thin off-white head. Decent lace. Medium-plus body. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Toasty malt, lighter caramel. Some earthy, spicy hop, light hints of dark fruit. Moderate bitter taste, lighter sweet. A very solid, hoppy, more bitter amber ale. Still malty, and kind of sweet, though.

b3shine (6605) - Indiana, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle to taster. Looks solid; a transparent amberish orange with thin off-white lacing. Smells malty first and hoppy second with a pretty sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells, only not as sweet. Average on the palate. Okay, but forgettable.

tnkw01 (1336) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle. Dark amber color. Great massive head that slowly went away. Taste was very malty and very hoppy at the same time. Powerful flavor. Aroma was hoppy.

Strykzone (5534) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - AUG 5, 2013
12 ounce bottle. A HUGE beige foam jumped up from the Spiegelau and oh so slowly subsided. A fruity aroma with malts and spice. First sip brings nice bitterness and tart citrus. Caramel malts. Fruit is there but is under the hops and the malts. Rye spice comes at the finish. This is a nice beer and one that I would expect the ABV to be a little higher.

SpringsLicker (3251) - Tennessee, USA - JUL 27, 2013
Clear deep amber body that hold a generous off-white head. Clean caramel aroma. Sweet on the front with some bitterness to balance. No real hop flavor. Yawn, another amber ale.

AirForceHops (4530) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 10, 2013
12 oz. bottle courtesy of queenholly. Another over carbonated bottle that had to be poured real slow… Aroma is pleasant citrus hops and caramel. Flavor is caramel and notes of toffee with Earthy piney hops. Bitterness lasts for a medium duration. If they get the carbonation right this will be very nice indeed!
