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.

Draft at the brew pub, but also picked up a bottle at Bruisin’ which I am enjoying now. Malty and clean with very little bitterness. A good drink, but not exactly a notable one.

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 (6075) - 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.
