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

wickster (85) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Poured a dark amber in color into a pint glass from 12oz bottle. Almost no aroma, but an OK flavor. Good malt hits the tongue followed with a nice amounts of bitters at the end. Overall a pretty good brew.

Boothead (26) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2012
Dark amber ale. Uninteresting aroma but tingle pallet and smooth flavor. Consider drinking with sweets!

screigh (472) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 26, 2012
Pours a ruby brown color. Very thin head that left no lacing. Malty aroma. Taste is malty, nutty and finishes with the perfect amount of bitterness.

DalzAle (1999) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle thanks to StFun! Dark amber pour, small ring of carbonation and an aroma of malt and a little nuts. Flavor is strong raisin, some brown sugar, black cherry peels and some chocolate on the finish. Interesting flavor for an amber for sure, and definitely worth looking for.

wnoble (1251) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle. Pours deep amber red. Head is moderate then fades to an off white soapy film. The aroma didn’t come off at strong overall like I expected/hoped but did lend mild flowery and pleasant citrus note with some additional light dark caramel and medium toffee like malt sweetness that adds to the mild hop character and helps it come off as fruity. Flavor lends sweet nutty, toffee, and fresh bready malt flavors backed with, again, light flowery and citrus hops. Sweet malt flavors then finishes dry. Hop bitterness is medium light. Solid drinkable beer.

drowland (6148) - Valdosta, Georgia, USA - AUG 17, 2012
8/11/12. GTMW - labeled as "Hello My Name is Amber," but based on the stats, this has got to be it. Hoppy aroma with nuttiness, citrus, and earthiness. Malt comes through even more in the flavor with some chocolate and nuttiness underneath the vibrant hoppiness. Not bad.

madvike (2843) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Bottle from Brigadier...thanks Nathan! - Pours dark brown with a thin light tan head. Nutty, dry dark bread malt on the nose, with a bit of metal when it’s cold. Taste is the same, with the nuttiness dialed back a bit and light sweet creamy milkiness. Pretty pleasant, though the aftertaste is a bit chalky. Pretty smooth and creamy...nice.

queenholly (3014) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Bottle. Buttery caramel malt aroma. Amber with a small tan head. Caramel malt, a little diacetyl, and big grapefruit peel hops flavor.Medium body, low carbonation. I found the hops a little harsh, and would have preferred more malt balance.
