boxofrane (2187) - 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.

GTAEgeek (1239) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - SEP 29, 2014
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.

CelticBrew (830) - 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....
