"i wasn’t expecting much from this style, as it has limited potential, but this was one of the better alts i’ve had. very smooth, with a nice balance. pleasantly surprised. too many times, a flagship beer is the breweries weakest offering...not the case here."

decaturstevo (5215) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Deep amber pour with creamy off white head and lace. Aroma is light caramel malt and some resiny hops. Caramel malt front with a resiny hop bitter finish, decent bitter too. Light to medium bodied and a tad fizzy.

A: Reddish/Amber Hue, Passes Some Light, White Head Ring, Mild Lacing S: German Malts, Mild Dank T: German Malts, Mild Caramel M: Average Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Drying Overall, this used to be their best beer by far a decade ago..it probably still is but only because all of the beers have fallen way off

JMerritt (1844) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - OCT 6, 2013
On tap at Pan American Grill. Dark red-gold with a small white head. Mild roasted malt nose with sweet (peanut?) and earthy peat highlights. Mildly sweet flavor, toast, mild cocoa, tea leaves, dried hay. Very easy drinking yet flavorful session beer that is more than the sum of its parts.

One of my favorites, I’m pretty surprised with the lower reviews. Amber colored ale, creamy smooth taste, nice flavor. Not a giant flavor, but exactly what I want in an amber.

Not sure how I haven’t rated this one either. Pretty much exactly how the description makes it sound. Nothing fancy, nothing really special.

Had on draft @ the Pearl Street brewpub, Buffalo,NY .. . scary name for a beer .. . mild malts .. some berry .. unique upfront bitterness .. a bit muddled .. an ok beer at best .. . . Ah, look, it’s just an old, creaky mirror, y’know, sometimes it sounds a little like it’s sneezing, or coughing, or talking softly.
