COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The is a pretty beer almost an amber/brown color. A well balanced beer that is great for the summer months. Unlike the porter, this is the beer that put them on the map.

12 oz bottle poured into a glass. Dark brown with a creamy colored 1 finger head that lingers. Molasses, caramel, bread, malty notes. Its pretty light, very drinkable, but nothing really stands out to me about this beer. Just plain and ordinary.

12 oz. bottle. Pour is a clear deep brown amber with an ivory head, average lacing. Big caramel notes on the nose with brown sugar and molasses. Taste is spot in with the aroma, caramel and toffee with a dark fruit presence, just a touch of hops. Finish is clean, mouthfeel a bit viscous, but what I expected from the rich malt. I got this as a beer of the month and am really enjoying it, and thankful that I have a chance to rate it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle pours clear bright brownish red with a finger of sudsy head. Nose is molasses, maple, bready, nutty. Taste is a syrupy molasses bomb, slick, dark bread. Finish is a syrupy smoky molasses mess. Pretty bad.

Dr_Fellini (552) - Norfolk, Virginia, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Bottle to glass. Pours a clear light to medium brown with some light reddish hues and a thin light tan head. Aroma is a faint toasty malt with a light nutty sweetness. Flavor is a light nutty sweetness. Body is also light for a brown with little flavor lingering the finish. Drinkable, but nothing fantastic.
