SPDickerman (1065) - Texas, USA - NOV 3, 2012
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.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Similar to Guinness.. Less of a coffee taste. Slightly reddish color, kind of cloudy. Good beer.. I would drink it again. Didn't love it, but I did like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Growler courtesy mora2000. My first from this brewery! Pours a clear copper orange to red color with a off-white foamy head. Aroma is caramel malts, sweet sugar and sweetbread. Sweet flavor and brown malts. Nice finish. Good and roasty.

Pleasant tasting enough, nice color for an amber, but frankly I just like the dog on the label, being a current Ridgeback fan.

Rated based on notes taken 3 Sep 2012 -- Notes are limited, pretty sure I drank this in either San An or Austin. I think I liked it I marked it pretty good. May have been due to alcohol content.

Poured up a clear amber with little head that seemed to fade away quickly leaving just a lace. Smells of toasted malts and tastes of toasted malts. very slight hint at the chocolates, so slight it can easily be missed. The hops are bitter and a bit dry. Overall this is a very decent brew that I will probably purchase again.

Signalwriter (86) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2010
Now tasted at the brewery in Katy, TX, and at its maiden pub, this is a tasty amber without being overblown. The color is dark red caramel but not dense and shows good carbonation throughout a pint (or two). Dark amber with slight head. The taste is of caramel and malt plus enough hops to cut its potential sweetness. Ridgeback is new and quite fresh, which is likely why I am rating this relatively high. I’d tend to favor it over a bottle of Saint Arnold Amber Ale, but not over the draught version.
