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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

Draught at the brewpub. Clear amber color without much head. Subtle piney hop nose with a hint of molasses. Caramel and grassy hop flavor. Not a whole lot of character, but decent.

Had this at the 1st street draft house in W-S, NC. Tastes like a typical brewpub amber ale. I think they all use the same type of hops that are kind of soapy. There’s kind of a carboard like taste. Overall, OK.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2005 On tap at Natty Greene’s brewpub in Greensboro, NC. Pours with a medium amber color with nice aroma of hops and caramel notes. Very smooth and rich with a medium sweet finish. Overall a pretty good amber ale, I could drink several in one sitting.
