4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fountain Square already impressed me with a very good porter, and now hereís this top-notch amber. The hops are a little strong but still there is plenty of malt backing it up and it comes out smooth. Also, I give it points for actually being amber and not a weird red. Moving on to the next FS brew on the shelf next trip to the liquor store!

12oz bottle. Clear amber red orange color. Thin khaki head. Good rows of lace. Medium body. Smooth crisp lighter carbonation. Good toasty malt and nice light citrus hop. Moderate to stronger bitter taste, light sweet. Light caramel malt. Very good amber, very quaffable. Great to wash my sandwich down with.

Bottle. A fairly bland amber with an odd aftertaste that I couldnít quite place. It reminded me of a different style beer, almost Belgian in character. Not great.

Mild and refreshing. A bit of light fruit in the body. Some caramel which compliments the amber color. Pretty nice without many unusual or outstanding features.

Tap@ Weber Grill - Indy: Clear, amber color with an off-white head and rings of sticky lacing. It had an extremely pleasant aroma of sweetness mixed with hops and maybe some nuts. Smoky, hoppiness runs through the flavor with a grainy aftertaste. For the style, this is an excellent amber ale. I think it ranks up there with one of my favs - Mack & Jackís African Amber.

Deep amber color with a sticky beige frothy head. LIght malty nose. Sweet malt taste with some caramel, toast and some toasted grains. Grassy hops in the finish. Very tastey amber, and very good with the smoked pork chop.

On tap at the brewpub, Indy. Handsome pour of a vibrant copper, with a nice silky head. Slightly grassy hops in the nose do much to liven up the sweet caramel flavors a bit. Full, fluffy mouthfeel but thereís a bit of a drop-off in the taste, where the nutty and sweet flavors reveal themselves to be pretty anonymous and the hops prove to be almost undetectable.
