GTAEgeek (1234) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 29, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a nice copper color, with a medium, bubbly, tan head. The aroma is toffee, juniper, almonds, raisins, and some light cardamon. Sweet flavor throughout, with just a touch of bitterness. Medium body, thick, and a little crisp and harsh. This is a pretty good, malty amber ale. Not overly deep or complex, but solid, well-made, and crisp.

CelticBrew (801) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - SEP 5, 2014
Poured from 12 oz bottle a crystal clear amber, forming a fine off white head. Aroma that of a restrained flowery hop character and a touch of caramel malt. Not much after that. Flavour waffles of floral hops, carmel malt, just a hint of sweetness. Blah....

Asheville, NC - Bruisin’ Ales - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, light off white head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is pretty much neutral, trace of mineral water. Flavor has some very faint nutty accents, a wee wisp of caramel, some hard candy sweetness. Mouthfeel is kind of dull. Not feeling it on this one.
