HighlanderOne (1024) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - OCT 13, 2012
On tap at olive or twist in Asheville. Caramel malt aroma. Clear dark amber with lacing. Caramel, butterscotch, roasted malt flavors, just barely some hops and smoke. Easy drinkability. Clean fresh feel. Not bad.

rangerred (954) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - APR 29, 2012
22oz bottle with no freshness date into a pint glass. Pours a clear dark amber with a tiny head that quickly fades. A slightly toasty caramel aroma is apparent but not much of anything in the way of hops. Pretty underwhelming. Some toasted caramel is present on the taste transitioning into a little bit of toffee. A quick touch of earthy hops is followed by a light bitterness lingering through the finish. Overall I am really not impressed by this beer. Everything about it screams "average" which is somewhat unusual for this brewery. I was really expecting more.

Travlr (13196) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - APR 21, 2012
Draft. Clear amber color, thick white head, solid lacing. Aroma of white pepper and hay. Taste is bitter straw and cardboard.

bubbleflubber (1853) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - OCT 31, 2010
Pours a slightly hazed burnt umber into the glass, with a fully diminished head that leaves trace lace. Nice dank basement aromas with some doughy notes and grains in there. Some pale malts and medium bitters in the mouth. Underwhelming in the complexity department. The mouthfeel is light with a grainy finish. Ok for the rate, I guess.

mephisto (1270) - TAIWAN - OCT 19, 2010
Draft at the brewery. Rather bland but pleasant. The color of a red-haired man’s beard. Small but attractive head. Smells great!

22 ounce bottle shared, that probably came from Bruisin Ales. Dark amber with caramel and sugar. Very tasty and a top notch amber.

theisti (3295) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - NOV 27, 2009
22 oz bottle courtesy of Suttree. Fall 2009 on label. Pour is a slight hazed orange, copper and brown with a nicely formed 2 inch off white head. The head falls slowly and loosely with some lacing. Aroma of dusty grain malt with some cereal / caramel sweetness. Not much else, a bit faint. Taste is the sweet caramel and nutty malt followed by some of the dustiness of the nose, and not too much past that. Palate is thin, almost watery with low to medium carbonation. Finish is clean and brief. Overall a tad on the dull side, but constructed well enough and easy to drink. Thanks for sending this my way Phil.

decaturstevo (5206) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 13, 2009
Amber pour with creamy white head and lace. Light caramel malt aroma with a bread chaser. Light caramel malt, toast, and a very light bitter. Just thin but very drinkable.

TURDFERGUSON (3969) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Bomber shared by Dave. Thanks. Nose is caramel, light hops. Color is amber. Flavor is lightly hopped. A nice, clean amber. Nothing too special.

NachlamSie (2808) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 18, 2009
Bomber. Pours a slighty cloudy amber with a really nice looking head. The aroma has hints of biscuits, toffee, and copper. It’s a bit metallic, but not overwhelming. What I really liked about this beer is the little chocolate note buried in the biscuity malt flavor. The hops are low. This was a decent drinking amber ale.
