COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Formerly brewed for Inlet Brewing Co. (ex Jupiter Brewing Co.) by Orlando Brewing Co., now by Thomas Creek.

This unique copper-colored ale derives its fruity, slightly spicy aroma from authentic Belgian Abbey yeast. The subtle nutty and malty sweet flavors sing in harmony with the freshest organic hops vailable. Monk In the Trunk devotees are known to chant about its most intriguing quality, true drinkability.

sample from the bottle @ Hotoberfest in Atlanta on 10/2/10. golden pour with a small white head. sweet caramel nose with some spice. average bitterness over a medium smooth body. slight sweet bitter finish. very drinkable amber - but I’d rather drink something else...

12oz bottle courtesy of Casey, poured into a tulip. Pours a crystal clear golden amber with a big fluffy beige head that recedes slowly to a small cap with decent lacing. Aroma is pretty basic with sweet apples, caramel malts and a bit of earthy hops. There is also a lightly toasted character and some fruity esterse in the nose as well. The taste is even more basic with some very, very light caramel malts with little else. There’s a slightly bitter, toasty finish. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with soft carbonation. This is not a bad beer but certainly nothing to write home about, especially the taste which is very one dimensional and bland.

Bottle donated to me by the guys from Sam’s. What to say about a beer with a name and label that are so dumb? And it’s an Belgian amber, I guess? Sort of an amber with some light dubbel-like notes to it from the Belgian yeast. It’s a light amber pour with a nicely retentive white head. It’s a little boring but unoffensive. Amber malts and some light Belgian yeast. Thin palate and taste, but a decent enough quaffer.

Typical amber - drinkable, but not outstanding in any way. Mostly caramel malt in the nose and a lightly sweet grain flavor. Organics always taste a little more watery.

OK, I don’t get this. The entry here says Brewed by Jupiter Brewing for Orlando Brewing, but my label says Brewed by Thomas Creek Brewing for Inlet Brewing? What gives? This seems to be a lot label jockeying for a very middle of the road beer...

holy crap, this is an outstanding amber ale. bready, hints of caramel and dark grain bread, with a wonderfully balanced clean bright finish. color me impressed.

12 oz. Clear amber with a lasting disc of foam. Aroma is dry grass, grain, and slight rubber. Initial flavor is rubber, peppery citrus, acidic bread yeast, resin, and dusty grain. Bubblegum, pears, and peppery clove creep in for a slightly better flavor on successive sips. A nice aftertaste of toasted nut and cinnamon apples. Medium body is smooth and dryish. Interesting and complex, but the flavors just don’t mesh for my tastebuds.

SHIG (3555) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - JUN 7, 2010
Draught: Poured a reddish brown amber with a off white colored head. Aroma was sweet fruit and spice. Taste seemed really grainy and very little of the fruit and spice carried over.
