Sebring, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 16 oz tall boy can. Dark amber pour, decently thick khaki colored head, nice lacing, crappy 8th grade graphics art class label. Aroma has some molasses accents, some homebrew over zealousness, a touch of toffee. Flavor is malt oriented, no hoppy bitterness to be found. Lots of caramel, toffee, molasses. Pretty one dimensional. Does in a pinch.

Tall boy can from a trade. Nose is initially a medium sweet caramel malt. Followed by hints of butter and vanilla. A very faint toasted malt. Deep red with orange highlight. Taste is slightly more roast forward but still very caramel at the same time. Light to medium hop bitterness. Overall a mediocre red/amber but not much else. Is what it is. Another amber ale.

Tap at the source. Pours red copper, small white creamy head. Aroma is sweet malts, roasted quality, caramel, mild hops. Pretty malty. Flavor is sweet red ale, malty. Not bad for a red.

Smells a little sweet like candy. A darker beer. Oh my, pretty strong impressions like many rochy brews. Wew, fer sure you can tell this is over 6%. Not real civilized b y southern standards.

Large sample pour of properly colored Amber with a thin off white head. Nose is caramel malts with faint citrus, a little zest. Caramel flavors, lighter hop notes of citrus and mild zest again, mostly sweeter malt notes. Not a favorite

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 oz can: Aroma had got a nice malty note to it, caramel, a bit of bread, and some really subtle grassy hops on the backend. Appearance is a reddish/ amber with a medium off white head that lingers. Taste is caramel malts upfront, lightly nutty, and some very light hop note in there as well. Palate is light and aqueous with a lightly malty, but somewhat crisp aftertaste. Overall, Good offering but nothing that will blow your socks off. Cheers!

On tap, poured into a shaker. The aromas are a dark blend of caramel and bubblegum with a lightly charred character. It pours a clear, oily red-brown color with a light tan, foamy head that reduces to a medium ring with hefty wisps along the surface and leaving a medium-light lacing on the glass. The taste is a medium sweet and light bitter. The medium bodied, oily textured beer has a light buzzy carbonation with flavors of caramel, grain, and spice, as well as a burnt grain / toast character late. Caramel appears most strongly in the finish with notes of spice and light bread appearing in the aftertaste.
