UPDATED: FEB 14, 2007 Had this beer on tap and wasn’t to bad for my first flossmoor beer. poured an amber body with a small cream head, a little hoppy nose with a little citrus and toffee. The flavor was suprising to me with the amount of hops that i tasted different than any other red ale i had but definetly good, also has a nice malt taste as well.Very nice a must try bought a growler while i was there of this ale.

(draught at resaurant) Deep amber/red. Small cream head. Not a lot of aroma - some malt. Flavor is sweetish comples malt with a solid hops kick in the finish. Quite hoppy for an amber ale.

Pre dark Lord Day. Had a slight grainy flavor with a slight hop under tone. Had higher hopes as this was my first Flossmoor brew.I am not a fan of Ambers and noe I rememder why..not enough flavor.

You know the decription doesnt really fit this beer, its a bit bitter and creamy but that is about it. a bit on the boring side, slighty better then a killians.

some good citrus aroma. flavor is much the same. kind of soapy. amber color. pretty good. on par with most brewpub amber/pale ales but still substitutable.

Tap at Flossmoor. Small ivory creamy and smooth head that mostly diminished, fine sized bubbles, nice lacing, hazy, uncarbonated, and an orange brown hue. Nose was malty, hoppy and sweet. Flavor was sweet and hoppy. Tingly, hoppy palate. Medium body.
