There was a decent aroma when I initially opened it, but then it seemed to taper off. Not much for the appearance, pale orange color and not much head. The flavor isn’t too bad however. Good malt feel and a the alcohol content seems to balance it decently. Nothing amazing, but very drinkable

This brew pours a clear dark amber color with a medium off-white head that diminishes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel and mild hops. Light body with a caramel malt character and notes of grain and hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Fairly average overall.

DiarmaidBHK (3466) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 3, 2012
Bottle from Bruisin Ales. Pours brown with an inch of khaki foam. A bit of floral on the nose. A slight hint of grapefruit on the tongue with a slight hint of toffee on the bite. As others have said its got a bit more upstairs than the typical amber.

Bottle. Somewhat darker bronze than is typical for the style. Sticky brown sugar and biscuits followed by peppery hops. Pretty good amber.

KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Bottle. The pour was a medium brown with a yellow hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) frothy off white head that diminished to a thin layer of residue and lasted throughout creating some really good spotty sticky lacing. The aroma was of mild bread and grain malts, an herbal hop and a sweet earthy yeast with notes of toffee and caramel. The taste was lightly sweet and malty with just a mild hint of toffee at first and then got a little hop bite with a nice caramel note at the end. The flavor lasted a decent amount of time with a slight hoppiness left at the finish. Mouthfeel was just a bit above light in body with the texture being a bit watery and a tad dry with a lively carbonation. Overall a nice tasty Amber ale with a nice mild hoppiness to it. But it seems that everything I try from this brewer is quite tasty.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Light sweet malty aroma with toffee and toasty notes. The flavor has sweet and toasty malts with light floral hoppy notes. Not bad.

reggiedunlop (3109) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Pours a clear amber/ruby color with a medium lt tan head. Aroma is malty...lightly fruity with a very faint metallic note. Flavor is malty and earthy...almost like rye...with a faint spicy hop note that builds in the finish. Mouthfeel is light and decently lively and the finish dries out with some spicy/earthy hoppiness.
