A full-bodied amber ale with a rich, smooth flavor, just the right balance of hops and notes of caramel and toffee.

poured into glass from 12 oz bottle, amber color, thin head, nothing too special about the aroma or flavor, what little flavor it had reminded me of the sour bitterness of a heineken. not very pleasant.

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.

boxofrane (2255) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 25, 2014
Bottle from Food Lion. Pours clear amber with a small off white head that dissipates very quickly. The aroma has pretty much just caramel from the malt, slightly toasty. The taste is light bread and biscuit. Not special.

Patrickctenchi (4070) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Bottle: Deep amber, thick, off-white head. Caramel, red apple-peel aroma. Caramel malt, fruit, a little toast and wood in the flavour. A bit watery... Just OK.

pnesbit (96) - Marietta, South Carolina, USA - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle pour a nice amber brown with little to no head. Aroma of sweet caramel and toffee. Taste of same sweet toffee with a hint of hops that makes for a clean finish. Med body with a lively carbonation. Overall sweet amber that is pretty easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PorterPounder (5697) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2014
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.

CelticBrew (852) - 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....
