Bomber shared by ucusty at the Carolina Crew tasting - thanks, David! I wanted to like this one more because Pisgah is quite props-worthy, both in terms of quality of output and organic-brew mission. But y’know, it’s just a competent amber at the end of the day. Very full body, lively head, and a sumptuous body. But the flavors are pretty generic, made slightly memorable only by the dry-ish finish.

Bottle from Brusin’ Ales in Asheville, NC. Deep dark amber pour fluffy off white head and a thin spotty lace. Aroma of caramel and zesty hops. Flavor definitely follows suite with grassy and grainy notes. Crisp dry finish.

Suttree (5130) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 20, 2009
darker than what I consider amber - more of a mahogany, I think. Nice aroma of caramel and dark bread. Surprisingly full bodied. Very bready - pumpernickel, maybe. Crisp finish.
