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.

Rather sour for my taste. Appearance and aroma aren't off putting at all, though. Won't buy again ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Strong caramel/malt taste. Smooth finish, not much bitterness. A head that disappears into a thin lace. Medium carbonation.

Drank on tap at the Mellow Mushroom in Raleigh, poured into a pint glass. Pours a nice dark amber color with light beige head. Couldn’t pick up on any distinctive aromas. But has nice flavor and very well balanced, you can taste the hops along with everything else!

kingaugusta (22) - Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2015
Pours golden-red with a slight off-white head. Nose is fairly generic amber ale and not very potent. This pattern holds for the flavor; it’s a decent, drinkable beer not no part of it stands out in a meaningful way.

On tap at Pig Floyd’s in Orlando, FL. Aroma is honey, malts, slight hops. Taste is the same... a good balanced amber with malts up front and a mild bitter finish.

Old rating. Copper color. An average Amber that is non offensive with malt and hops in balance, but nothing special.

Pours golden copper with thick white head. Aroma is all but absent. Very malty, sweet up front and hoppy aftertaste though not too bitter - is that orange peel? Full bodied with light carbonation on tap. Overall really enjoyable beer. Would definitely order again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
