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.

Finhead (1375) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - AUG 8, 2015
Hazy, amber pour with a huge, tan head. The aroma is slightly roasted along with some herbal hops. It has a medium body with crisp texture and lively carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a dry finish.

Tap at a bar somewhere in Indianapolis. Probably a bit too heavy on the hops which gave me a bad case of hop mouth.

A little disappointed, this beer would go well with some crazy hot wings but that is about it.

12 oz Bottle. Appearance is opaque copper color with medium, beige head. Aroma is sweet caramel, and mild herbal hops. Taste is similar with caramel sweetness punctuated by a herbal bitter bite. Palate is medium-bodied, thin texture, average carbonation, and a mild bitter finish. Ok Amber.

Chudwick (2479) - Cincyucky, Kentucky, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Taster in a whiskey glass - nose is butter. Sips ads citrus and a general hippiness. Not like any macro amber. Dude behind the bar called it a mix between fat tire and stone IPA: dead on.

shadey (1996) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 11, 2014
12oz bottle. Pours a nice amber color with a thin head. Creamy malt aroma and citrusy hop aroma. Bitter flavors upfront and nice smooth malt backbone. Lingering hop bitterness. Very nice American amber

hotstuff (4413) - Indiana, USA - APR 4, 2014
Rated on 4-09-2011 at Flat 12. This draft beer pours a small ivory head with a lengthy retention, amber transparent body, visible carbonation, and a generous amount of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, citrus and some pine hops. The taste is bitter, caramel malt, citrus, and pine. The mouthfeel is tingly carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is very quaffable with a nice hop presence.

12 ounce bottle. Pours reddish brown. Nice caramel notes followed by a decent hoppy finish. Pretty good for style.
