Hoppier than its English cousins this American amber ale will have you saying ďJolly good showĒ when the maltiness rolls across the palate and locks fingers with the spicy hop finish. Hopped to the top end of the style, Flat12ís amber ale maintains its composed American character throughout. ABV: 5.8% IBU: 42.7

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

12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a mostly clear reddish/amber color with about an inch frothy tan head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. The brew smells like toasted and bready malt, caramel, nuts, and some herbal/spicy hops. Taste is mostly like the aroma, but with the addition of some citrusy hops and dark bread flavors. Thereís also a good amount of hoppy bitterness in this brew. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, itís smooth and has low/moderate carbonation. Also easy to drink. Itís one of the better amber ales Iíve had recently. I wouldnít mind trying this one again in the future. $2.49 a single.

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

Rating 800. Also among the first beers that I got to try at Flat 12. Iíll admit, itís a bit difficult to rate this beer. Iím a hops guy, and this guyís hopped in spades. Real fresh obviously since itís at the brewery. The 42.7 IBUs are at the forefront here. They stand out. Thereís enough malt to back it up though. Nice light earthiness to go along with some zesty spice. Itís different. Havenít had many good ambers lately. Refreshing change.

Dark amber ale. Uninteresting aroma but tingle pallet and smooth flavor. Consider drinking with sweets!

Bottle. Orange brown pour with an off white head. More caramel, coffee and hoppyness in the aroma and taste than the average amber. Pretty good stuff.

phaleslu (9384) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Draft at RapeBeerís wedding. Pours a semi-cloudy amber color with a small, soft, resilient khaki head. Notes of toasted malts, nuts, caramel, brown sugar, biscuits, sweet crackers, and faint earthy hops. Light-medium bodied, with soft carbonation and a toasty mouthfeel. Excellent amber ale that hits all the right notes for me.

Tap at source. Toffee malt, cherry, and citrus peel aroma. Amber color with small head. Sweet toffee malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Nice - an excellent beer.

On tap. Deep amber pour with a good amount of tan head. Nose is very malty - biscuit, caramel, and toast. Some grassy hops and toffee as well. Flavor has a surprising hop bite - earthy and grassy. More malt with a bitter finish.
