3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours dark, copper brown with a faint head. Faint roasted malt aroma. Taste has some hops, but more roasted malt with a hint of sweet and a slight bitter aftertaste. Slightly effervescent with a bit more body than a typical lager. This is more what I expect of an Amber than a lot of the beers labeled that way.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: APR 29, 2016 Clear chestnut brown with a tan-colored head of some retention. Malt and yeast-driven aroma is burnt caramel syrup, over-caramelized (scorched) barley, burnt popcorn, cookie batter, and faint soil / manure notes. Medium-light body, sweet with low bitterness, plump carbonation, syrupy finish with mild pepper and green leaf hoppiness. Terribly crude beer, it smells and tastes like raw barley and sawdust, what the hell, man?

Not as crisp as I'd want in a lager, but interesting none the less. Appearance is crystal clear Amber brown. Nice flavor and very smooth. An all day drinker for sure. Alabama is making some solid stuff.

Great smooth flavor. There seems to be a small hint of sweetness that I think is honey. Like the label of a black bear with a fish in its mouth, awesome beer!
