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

thedm (4952) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 21, 2013
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated transparent red brown colored body. The mild aroma was bready and dough. The bubbly mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering aftertaste. The bubbly flavor contained notes of bread dough. Not one that I would likely drink again why to bubbly/carbonated for my taste.

19 apr 2013, bottle. Bright brown/pink, almost clear. Nose is sweet malt,tea, faintly soapy. Thin/med body and faintly fizzy. Peppery, slightly caramel malt. Really popped and fizzed when I opened the bottle. Thought it was going to be bad but it was just okay. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle via trade. I was honestly expecting nothing from this beer and found out it was really decent, nah this is a good amber. Poured an unimpressive honey brown body of a slightly thinner density with a foamy quick fading super light beige head. Aroma is where this one started to pick it up, lots of caramel malts, toast, nut shells and even a hint of peanut butter. The body is a little watery with strong carbonation and a quick fading aftertaste, sort of sodaish. Flavor is like the aroma, light caramel malts, some slight molasses, toast, amber malts, cereal grains. Solid stuff that I could sip on.

Suttree (5195) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 28, 2013
Well, this seemed closer to an IPA than an Amber. Nicely hoppy, with plenty of malty. caramel flavors to back it up. Some subtle fruity notes, too. I liked this more than I expected.

Bottle from Stfun. Pours reddish wish some white head. Nice hoppy aroma and taste. Gushed everywhere but what I saved was quite good.

Appearance is medium white head with clear amber. Aroma is sweet. Taste is a little sweet malt with slight hoppy bitterness. Overall pretty solid.

tmongoose (1341) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 30, 2013
Pours reddish brown, with off white head. Basically a sweet malt aroma, a bit of some nuttiness. Flavor is more of the sweet malt and nut. Maybe some caramel. Something is just cant place it. Not bad.

hopscotch (9258) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 24, 2012
Bottle... Clear burnt-amber ale with a ridiculously huge, frothy, off-white head. Fantastic retention. Either this is over-carbonated or it’s in the early stages of infection. The nose boasts caramel, nuts and toast. Full-bodied with airy carbonation. The flavor is bittersweet -more bitter than sweet - with caramel and citrus rinds really standing out. Lengthy, metallically bitter finish. Overall, this beer is disjointed. The rindy, metallic bitterness doesn’t meld at all with the caramel sweetness. They are entirely separate, ill-timed components. However, despite its flaws, I actually enjoyed this one overall. The entirety is definitely greater than its fragmented parts. I can’t for the life of me remember who provided this one, but thanks.

Decent amber. Very roasty and malt forward. Toast, bread crust, nuts and dark grains. Subtle sweetness. Mild grassy bitterness. Somewhat drying.

Acknud (1081) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Pours medium brown with a small head. The aroma is light roasted malt. Taste is hopper than I would have expected in an amber.
