Bottle. The pour was a cloudy medium brown with a reddish hue and had an average sized (1-2 finger) off white frothy head that lasted a little while, leaving behind some residue that lasted throughout thus producing some excellent lacing that was left sticking to the glass.
The aroma was of a cookie like malt, a moderate dose of herbal hops and a mild sweet yeast with notes of caramel, toffee and had a slight nutty presence with a mild alcohol tinge.
It tasted slightly bitter with a hint of toffee and a slight nuttiness at first then became nice and malty and very lightly sweet with a note of caramel and a moderate hop presence at the end. The flavor stuck around for a nice long while, allowing for the flavor of lingering hops to be totally appreciated.
Mouthfeel was just a tad below medium in body and mildly dry in texture with a medium carbonation.
Overall a nice sweet malty brew with a nice emphasis on hops at the finish.

Light bodied and easy drinking amber ale. Faint caramel nose and taste. Not much going on. A good beginner beer. No after taste so goes down easy.

Nice unique blend of roasted and bready malts, and bitter hops. Not a favorite red/amber, but not bad.

Bottle pour. Nice Amber color with a half a finger head. Good roasty, malty taste up front, but too much bitterness for me. Okay, but there are better ambers out there.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an expected, amber, with healthy but quickly disappearing light khaki head. Taste is smooth with some roast, sweetness, fruitiness and bitterness. The sweetness is almost artificial but not overpowering, and the toast adds a nice dimension. Overall, easy drinking and flavorful. Pretty good!

Tap @ the Ritz Carlton, Buckhead, Georgia. Lovely red pour with beige head that dies too fast. Light nose of caramel, bakery, and cashews. Tastes very much like it smells. Not perfect but quite nice.
