ChainGangGuy (4362) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 11, 2009
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazed, suitably amber-hued body topped by a slender covering of white suds. Smell: Pale malts with light touches of toasted grain and caramel. Small hint of orchard fruitiness. Hops impart some earthy, citrusy notes as well as perhaps a hint of spice. Taste: Lightly sweet, toasty pale malts with a rounded caramel character. Slight fruity tones. Earthy, lightly citrusy hops with a medium-low amount of bitterness to balance. Drying, bittersweet finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A pretty decent, nicely done amber ale from Mt. Carmel and one I could readily see myself keeping a six’er of in the refrigerator if the brewery wasn’t about 500 miles away.

Great Example of a good Amber, Malty toasty flavour. Great smooth finish. My wife loveeesss Fat Tire, so I put her to a blind taste test and she had no Idea of what each beer was. She chose this over the Fatness! She does have a pretty good palate and was shocked, lol!

Drjohnrock (431) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Poured from 12 ounce bottle from Mt. Carmel 12 pack sampler purchased at Delhi Kroger. Dark amber color, small tan head, nice firm nose of mostly malt with enough bitterness to keep things honest, good malty flavor with balancing bitterness that’s much like the aroma. This brew seems to be Mt. Carmel’s de facto flagship beer and is worthy of such an honor. Very good for style.

Drake (8339) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - SEP 9, 2011
Bottle from Belmont Party Supply. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a medium creamy off-white head that fades fairly quickly. Aroma of toasted malts and caramel. The taste is berry-like fruits, toasted malts, toffee, and a bitter hop finish. Medium bodied.

nuplastikk (4334) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 26, 2012
12oz bottle picked up in Columbus, OH. Unfiltered looking orange-tan. Thin, soapy head, steady carbonation bubbles rising. A pretty decent aroma, fleshed out with some fresh hop tones. Caramel and amber malt, pretty decent balance, doesn’t really have much of a hop bite..more an earthy undertone. A pretty decent beer, some smooth, creamy yeast notes. OK.

It pours a little less than what I expected from an amber ale, but finishes with a smooth taste. Not a bad brew from a small and local brewery. Would try again.

Chuckaduck (640) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - NOV 22, 2013
Bottle. 11/22/13. Pours clear amber color with thin white head. Aroma is sweet, slightly tart, grass, fruit peel, hops; smells tasty. Taste is sweet, earthy, grass, yeast, some bitter orange peel, crisp, refreshing; finish is brown sugar, citrus peel. Very light lacing. Mouth feel is chewy, medium bodied. Very wet, watery. Nothing outstanding. Surprisingly tasty and refreshing. I would order this in a bar.

foundmd (210) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 25, 2009
12oz bottle. Pours cloudy amber/orange with a small white head. Aroma is caramel malts and touch of hops. Initial flavors of caramel and toffee give way to a light citrus hop bitterness towards the finish. Medium/light-bodied with a clean aftertaste. Highly drinkable. A great local brew, and a solid Amber.
