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.

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.

Draft at carolina alehouse in Durham airport. Color is a solid amber coloration. Deepred brown. Head is big and frothy. Floral aroma, fruity baby food, peach aroma. This is hands down my favorite amber. I dont like the style, but I like that this one is sweet. This reminds me of an alchol based peach sweet tea that isn’t overly sugary and has a good malt overtone. Although not typical for its style, it has a wonderful balance fpr what it is. Medium light body, well carbed, keeps its head, beautiful color, flavorful. Great beer. Wish I had some in texas. No bad aftertaste and not too strong. Good solid amber without being a typica amber. Love this beer.

Ferris (7533) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 16, 2015
Draft - Caramel on the nose. Clear amber with a decent head. Caramel, light hoppy bitterness and a nice finish. Basic, but well done.

2/1/2015. From bottle. Amber with a white head. Caramel and light fruit aromas. Sweet fruity flavors with hints of toffee. A bit bland, middle of the road brew.

Foxbush (1482) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JAN 31, 2015
12 oz bottle. This was enjoyed at home in Columbia, SC. The ale poured an amber color with off white head. Malt and bread is detected on the nose. The ale had a medium body with average carbonation. This is a refreshing beer that is easy to drink. Smooth finish with caramel malts lingering in the last swallow.
