From tap at brewery. Pours fairly dark amber with some off white head. Decent lacing. Nose is somewhat hoppy with a little caramel sweetness. Taste is also fairly hoppy and slightly dirty. Big, lingering finish. Not bad.

Thin orange, minimal head. Nose is light amber roasted grain. Sweet on the tongue. Middle is orange sherbert and malt. Finish is sweet, maybe a touch too sweet.

This draft brew from the brewery poured a medium sized head of white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent light orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start with a mellow finish. The flavor contained notes of mild wheat sweet honey hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

12 oz. bottle. Consumed straight from the bottle. Showed a surprising amount of hop character; citrusy and floral. Notes of pale and sweet malts, faint spice, and a little snap of grassiness. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation. Crisp and light and refreshing. Works as a summer beer probably. Pretty basic ale.

Pours out a soft, pale light almost more golden than it does amber. Itís not the rich almost copper color that some Amber or Irish Red Ales can be. Nice bright white head on top that stays throughout the course of the beer. Defiantly getting that pale malt build on the nose with almost no hop aroma mixed in. The maltiness come out even more on the tongue with just a slight bitterness on the finish. I was a bit disappointed as I would have loved to see the hops come out a little bit more on this beer, but overall, a solid amber that would go well with a burger, steak, pork, BBQ....pretty any much red meat you can think of. I think this would be a good intro beer to non craft beer drinkers, but at the same time, I donít think it will insult the palate of the seasoned craft beer drinker.

Tried this beer on tap at Twin Peaks in Houston, TX. An amber ale with a slightly sweet malty flavor; light caramel notes with floral and citrus notes from the hops.

Thanks for the extra Brad! Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a Founderís snifter.
A: Pours a clear solid orange color with a little off white head that quickly recedes into a slight bubbly film. Iím very surprised how light colored the brew is as I was expecting a darker color.
S: Big cracker malts right off the nose, this is the maltiest amber ale Iíve ever smelled. Slight caramel sugars come off as well with a light fruity note.
T: A little hoppy forefront with a very big malt middle. A mix of bread dough and light cracker. There are also some semi-sweet fruity esters in the mix as well.
M: Medium to light bodied with a semi-crisp mouthfeel. Leaves a nice little bitterness on the palate, but itís short lived.
O: The was a very malty amber ale, but it was still a pretty good. Refreshing, just like the other SA brews.
