Our namesake beer. Deep copper hue with a rich, caramel aroma and subtle hop perfume. Assertively bitter finish balancing the residual malt-sweetness. ABV from 6% to 4.4% to 4.9%.

Draft - Light grains and caramel. Amber with a good beige head. Lots of caramel, some grain and an out of black bitterness. The hops don’t partake much if any flavour, but still significantly bitter. Less bitterness more flavor.

On tap poured a clear orange hue w/ medium white head. Mild nutty grain aroma. Tastes are caramel, apricot, earthiness, biscuit, and grass. Kind of funky, watery mouthfeel.

BeerandBlues2 (9081) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Tap at the brewery. Pours clear copper with a small, fizzy white head, short retention with spare lacing. Aroma is toast and nutty malt, dates and earthy hops. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness with light malt and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

A reddish orange color, not much of a scent and no head or lacing. Again wouldn’t recommend this beer to anyone

onceblind (3672) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Tap at brewpub. Clear copper with a thin cap of head. The smell is musty like an old home, but with some earthy toffee and funky citrus rind. The flavor is bittersweet with lots of murky earthiness, and bitter herbal hops. Mild and sessionable, but I’m not a fan of the flavor.

HighWine (941) - Whalezbro, Illinois, USA - AUG 16, 2012
Tap flight at the brewery. Dark amber-nutmeg pour. White head left a long time ago leaving a ring around the top of the brew. Aroma of caramel malt and hops. Taste is otter iced coffee with a drop of agave nectar and earthy hop bitterness. Very bitter on the end like an ESB. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

djd07 (2915) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2012
On tap at brewpub. Pours a clear copper with a small off white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is raisin malt and caramel. Medium mouthfeel with a sweet malt and raisin with a light crisp finish. Easy to drink a very good amber ale from Freetail.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2012
Tap at brewpub
Pours an average amber with a nose of toasty, dried hops. Flavor is leaves, hops, and toast. Oily on the palate. Tasty.
