COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named after our riverboat, the Betsy Ann on the Alabama in downtown Montgomery, when you drink this deep amber ale you can taste darker caramel malts that leave your palate with a clean, slightly sweet malty flavor. Fuggles and lots of cascade hops contribute to the smooth balance with a slight fruity-floral finish.

unclemattie (4185) - Georgia, USA - APR 11, 2009
Sampler. Deep mahogany/ copper color. Creamy white head. Nice lace. Caramel malt aroma. Light toffee notes. Very low malt character. Weak. High hop, lingering bitterness. Overall, its missing the bready sweetness, and with a higher bitterness, it just feels off balance. so so.

DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - AUG 28, 2008
Draft at the brewery. Maroon/red color, very small white head. Malty nose with some caramel and a bitter undertone. Not too complex and more of a bitterness lean than is typical of the style, but easily drinkable.

gabbama (203) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - AUG 27, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Not too impressed with this one. Musty aroma. A bit too much hops for this style seem to be a weak attempt to cover for its other flaws. Drinkable but not one I would drink regularly.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - JUN 8, 2008
Tap at the brewpub. Medium copper body with a thin white head. The aroma was sweet and malty with some caramel. The taste was a little bit of dirt and bread crust. There was also some caramel.

ChainGangGuy (4373) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - NOV 5, 2007
Appearance: Garnet-hued body with a dense, lush off-white head. Smell: Altogether bland aroma with only faint hint of caramel and yeastiness. Taste: Light caramel maltiness with a bit of sweetness. Mild hop presence provides a faint tea-like bitterness and a hint of lemon. Bittersweet finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A bit light on flavor, but it’s still pretty decent.

BelgianBeerGal (3190) - Panama City, Florida, USA - OCT 19, 2007
Drat poured into a shaker glass. Clear amber colour with a creamy, off-white head. Aroma and flavour just seemed a little dusty and flat. Drinkable but nothing exciting. Least favorite of their beers I tried.
