3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear, dark copper with a thin, white head that stays. Excellent lacing. Subtle and inviting aroma hinting at some complexity. Full, creamy mouthfeel. Surprisingly malty and nutty flavor for the style -- almost closer to an American Brown Ale. Very nice.

12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass.
Almost clear deep amber color, small white head.
Nutty and caramely nose, with floral hops and some over riped bananas.
Sweet malt flavors, some honey, nuts, soft toffee and lo bitterness.
Light-med body, soft carbonation, and pleasant finish. OK.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location/Date:Bottle on December 21st, 2012.
Appearance: Pours a red copper semi-clear.
Aroma: Aroma of caramel, faint dough.
Taste: Light floral bitterness, sweet caramel.
Palate:Medium light body, lingering aftertaste, faint fizz.
Summary: A solid amber ale but nothing sticks out. Probably my least favorite beer from The Duck-Rabbit Craft Brewery and itís the lightest in color - maybe thatís not a coincidence.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Unexpected funk in the nose that was a surprise, but sharp pleasant bite for an amber. Nice round bitterness with a bit of sweet malts to even it out a little. I am on the fence with this one. Interesting profile but a little unusual.

12oz bottle from The Foodery, Center City, Philadelphia. A clear reddish copper colour with a fast fading cream head; rich aromas of caramel and malts; creamy texture with lots of malt and caramel, without being too sweet; thereís some shortlived bitterness too, and some warmth to the finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Best before July 2012.
A: This beer is absolutely stunning with itís crystal clear dark amber/copper body with a healthy amount of carbonation showing. A dense light tan head sits on top with excellent retention and leaving a nice mess on the sides of the glass.
S: Slightly sweet and slightly forward caramel malts. This is a very simple beer in aroma, though a tad relaxed.
T: Bready malts up-front with mild caramel notes throughout, the finish has a slightly roasted finish with more caramel sweetness. This ends up being semi-sweet and balanced well. This is something I would give to my BMC beer drinking friends without hesitation.
M: Medium bodied with light carbonation. A bit watery even.
O: This is a great beer for what it is, I wouldnít hesitate to buy this for friends if the price were right.

Not a giant fan of this beer. Amberís arenít known for assaulting the senses, but this one could have tried a little harder. Bronzed water with a bit of caramel. Tried at the Cuniganís tasting party in 2012.
