Rated 3/24/13. Portion of a 12 oz bottle poured into a Hunahpu’s snifter. From notes. A: Pours a clear amber/copper color, with a rather dinky-looking white head. Looks pretty good regardless. S: All I pick up here is some unsweetened caramel. T: The faintest twang of fruity esters builds to a caramel-y finish. Extremely unassuming. M: Crisp, dry, and light. If you’re going to showcase little in the way of flavor on the palate, this is how you do it. O: Nothing wrong with this per se...it’s just so bland, though. Really just one step up from BMC in my opinion.

Outstanding Amber / American pale ale. I see it’s listed as an amber, but it to me, it definitely drank like an APA. I enjoyed two pints of this beaut on draft at Sugar Creek in Nags Head. The beer poured a bright and clean copper color with an ample off-white head. The head laced nicely around the inside of the glass. The nose was very inviting with plentiful notes of fresh, spicy and bold hops. The flavors followed suit, with a ton of full and bold happiness. There was also plenty of bready and biscuit flavored malts. The finish was smooth and slightly creamy with more fruity and spicy hops. Really nice ale!

Nice caramel color with a fair amount of carbonation and bubbly white head. Nice aroma of roasted nuts and toast. Palate is full slight even bitterness.

Aromas are slightly fruity, stale bread, corn, crackers. Clear copper with a somewhat lasting off-white head. Mostly dry, a little fruity, corny. Light bodied.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a mostly clear amber with a thin white head. Caramel and malt on the nose, a bit of sweetness. Medium bodied, grainy with some malt and a touch of crackers and bitterness. Slow earthy bitterness into the finish.

I feel bad about the low score, but it is what it is. Poured from a bottle, small head, slightly cloudy amber color. Aroma isn’t bad, sweet, but the taste isn’t great, skunky, sour, and a filmy finish.

Drank at Natty Greene’s on tap in a pint glasses. Pours a nice dark amber color with decent head and little carbonation. Has a slight smell of bourbon. Tastes like an average amber with a slight taste of bourbon, a well done amber!! Possibly my highest rated amber brew!

Bottle. Very pretty amber with not much of a head. Heavy candied caramel notes in the nose. Flavor is caramel, burnt sugar, autumn leaves. Not bad.
