Copper to amber in color with rich white head. Aroma is of flowery hops with hint of caramel and malt. Balanced flavor with fairly assertive hop bitterness. American flavor profile - very consistent with a pale ale although not billed as one.

Draft at the source. Hazy amber color, thick tan head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of lemon bread. Taste is toasted caramel.

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.

HighWine (955) - 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

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.

Hazy, sediment filled amber colored body with a frothy off white cap, that is leaving some decent lacing. Some sweet caramel in the aroma with a very faint hint of orange hops. Flavor is geared towards the malts but a little hop bitterness comes out in the dry finish. Overall, not too shabby.

Amber in color with a small off-white head. Aroma is of fruit, hops, and flowers with some malt and caramel notes. Taste is moderately hoppy with light grapefruit notes and a sweet malty finish.

llcooldave (1181) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAY 30, 2009
Toasty malt aroma and a coppery red appearance. Flavor is pretty much a straight up toasty malt with a delicious slight licorice aftertaste. Nice effort. I’ll definitley order again.

DarkBeerChick (155) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Nice copper red with a light head. Aroma is rich and inviting with slight hops. Flavor was surprisingly full bodied with mild hops and a mild sweetness. Not bad at all and would probably order again.
