Poured as a 4 oz taster in Greensboro pub. Surprising dark coffee notes, malt, beautiful color, sweetness counters the coffee enough that the wife, who doesn’t like coffee, likes. Went very well with the burger for lunch.

kingaugusta (157) - Georgia, USA - NOV 30, 2015
coppery and a little hazy with a quick white head. nose is a fairly generic amber ale with a little bit of sweetness and a touch of oak. Flavor profile is similar but a little sweeter and with tones of breadand just a little bit of hop bitterness. Backside has almost a pasta feel to it. a little weird but unremarkable

hopscotch (10426) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle... Pours clear and dirty-orange with a small, white head. Toffee and bready notes, along with a port/golden raisin-like ester are the aromatic highlights. Light-bodied with zippy carbonation. The flavor is medium-roast malty and very well-balanced. Crisp, clean, refreshing finish. Well done. Good amber ale. Bottle courtesy of Tinkerbell!

Pours clear amber with white head. Aroma of caramel, grass, and toffee. Flavor of caramel with grass. Nothing really else. Bitter lingers. Palate is thin like water. Its ok

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.

j12601 (8700) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 17, 2015
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.

kidobutai (576) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - MAY 14, 2015
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.
