tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - JUL 24, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Pours amber with ivory head. The aroma is caramel and slight grass with some toast. The flavor is slightly toasty with some lemongrass twang. Very distant caramel sweetness lurks behind it. The flavor remains level, and doesn’t change into the finish.

bubbleflubber (1819) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUL 4, 2007
Transparent amber pour with a light offwhite ring that laces the glass down. Sweet malty nose. Boisterous caramel and toffee notes, mixed with some weird light tortilla corn. This turns paler and more biscuit-like toward the finish. Adding decent bitters to the finish helps it from becoming slightly cloying. The body is medium, although could be cleansing, depending on the beginning or end of the pull. The odd pairings going on here makes for a "just ok" brew.

A great step-up for those looking for better beer, but very watery for an amber ale. Not a lot of mouth feel.

Cornfield (5473) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 1, 2006
This aroma of this deep amber ale is rich with chewy malts, caramel with some toffee, and just a suggestion of sweet apples. Creamy mouthfeel. The taste delivers the maltiness that the aroma promises and has just enough bitter hopping to keep the sweetness under control. Nice.

Scubatrip (596) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - APR 30, 2006
On tap at the brewpub, pours a dark, clear amber with rising bubbles and no head. Tastes lightly malty, with a bit of caramel. Not bad, though nothing to write home about.

BuckNaked (1230) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 26, 2006
Draught at the Brewpub in Greensboro 3/25/06: Clear amber body with a small, lasting white head. The aroma is typical amber, mild caramel, light toffee malt, and the smallest hint of hops. Taste is sweet caramel, mild toffee, and surprisingly some light smoke and charred wood flavors that are very subtle and work very well in an amber ale. Light-medium body, moderately carbonation, finishes with sweet caramel and light smoke notes.
