Absolutely sure I’ve had this one, but never rated it. Had it at a wedding this past weekend, so here we go. Poured a slightly ruby amber color with a small white head. Aroma was some toasty notes, floral hops. Flavor was caramel malt, lightly floral notes. A decent amber. More malt sweetness than anything else.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a deep amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel, and grains. Feels oily on the tongue with a front end bitterness and a hint of sweet malts. I really wanted to like this beer, but it just is off for me. The overpowering sweetness ruins this beer.

Pours an amber, with an interesting grapefruit hue. Sweet malts, syrup on the nose. Malty, bready taste with caramel and hints of brown sugar. An excellent amber ale.

On tap at Finnegan’s during trivia night (can’t believe I couldn’t remember Good Times was a spinoff of Maude!). Dark mahogany pour. Aroma is malt heavy, butterscotch and coffee, with orange peel notes. Flavor has a surprising amount of roast, followed by caramel and orange peel/pine hops. Malty body, mild carbonation. Definitely on the maltier side, verging on a brown ale.

Nicely balanced beer from Asheville’s largest brewery. Excellent balance. Not an exciting beer, but a very good one.
