12 oz. bottle served in a shaker- poured a transparent slightly darkened amber color, white ring around the glass for a head after a few minutes, aroma of hard water and biscuits, ugh. Hits the mouth with a medium body, malt is just slightly sweetened, some hops in the middle, finish is complete. Just a beer, nothing less and nothing more.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2012 Pours clear mahogany with a small light beige head. Smells biscuity with a touch of caramel. Taste is sweet, malty, with a touch of bitterness in the middle. Light-to-medium bodied with a smooth, wet texture and soft mouth-carbonation, No Label Ridgeback Ale finish with some soft sweetness.

Growler from Whole Foods: Amber honey in color with a thin soapy head. Slight cocoa flavors upfront followed by a pleasing mellow piney bitterness. Almost bordering on Pale Ale territory. Slight toasted nutty malt aroma. Overall, it’s serviceable...

Good to see No Label hanging in there and getting their beers into North Texas. I think their quality is improving and it shows in this one. This one doesn’t stand out, but it is a solid beer that belongs on tap at a Texas craft beer pub.

The pour is a clear amber color with an off-white head. The nose is bready with some toast and a bit of caramel sweetness. Light cocoa in the background and a very mild earthy hop aroma. The flavor has a bit of hop bitterness, but not much in the way of hop flavor. Mostly just toasted bread maltiness with a touch of caramel sweetness. Light cocoa flavor to it as well.

Pours a light brown. Hints of cinnamon and chocolate on the nose. While there is a strong presence of sweet malt, there is a lot of hop in this beer - more then most ambers. Makes it more of a pale ale then an amber, but it's close.

Poured a pretty deep amber with no head. Nose betrayed that there would be no malty goodness that I expect from the style.
