Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a clear amber color with a white head. The aroma is toffee with some dirt and earthy hops. The flavor is toffee, earthy hops and caramel malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. A little disappointing overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
"Mild dark copper colored ale with a lot of nice subtle qualities. Decent sized head and lots of stringy lacing. Heavily toasted aroma with a big nutty scent. Malty flavor consisting of caramel, bread and nuts followed by a faint spicy fruitiness. Well balanced and thicker than it looks, nice medium to full body with a brisk hop bitterness to balance the sweetness. "

22 oz. bottle from Ludlow Wines or Keller’s IGA, don’t remember which, but both have this beer for the low price of $3.99. Pours a nice clear amber color with a finger-thick off-white head. Notes of caramel and brown sugar are heavily present, with toast, nuts, tea, and earthy hops. Light-medium bodied, with soft carbonation and a toasty mouthfeel. Nice amber ale from TBK.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz. Bottle: Faint aroma of malt and slight caramel. Poured amber/orange in color with a small to medium-sized, creamy, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Slightly hazy. Lightly sparkling. Light to medium sweet flavor of caramel malt. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Caramel malt finish. Very boring.

Very sessionable beer. There is nothing complex to this beer. Faint hops and a little malty. If you are looking for a beer that will not get you drunk and you can drink a fair amount of them this is the beer for you.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2012 $4 / 22oz Bomb - Is this offensive? No, but that is not a great criteria for rating. This amber is just okay for regular day consumption. The palate is silky smooth--I’ll give them that--but not much in the taste department here. TBK!!! I’m putting you on notice! This is my second bottle from you folks, and this will be my second modest rating of your beer. Don’t make me admonish your brewery again. **Re-rate- 10.25.12 Have a little more respect for this beer, especially in the aroma department.
