Cooper-colored, with a small head. Smells kind of grassy. Tastes okay - kind of nutty with some maltiness.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour is a deep orange color, relatively clear with a small white head, decent lacing. Nose is of malt and some almost vanilla or oak like flavors. Taste is rather to the malty side for an amber ale, however still very refreshing and a rather nice change of pace.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: NOV 18, 2011 I didnít sense much aroma from this. Rather bland and unexciting. It was copper in appearance, and it tasted as though there was copper in the bottle. Very metallic. Kind of a sharp aftertaste. I have to think that there are better ales from this brewery.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear, rich amber color with some active visible carbonation and a small, uneven, off-white head that leaves some lace. Aromas of brown sugar, caramel, earth, dark chocolate, toffee and some nuttiness. A light mineral mouthfeel that finishes dry. Slight hop adds a bitter, dry finish. Pretty tasty amber. Yes please, Iíll have another...

On tap at Asheville Airport. Pours amber. Taste like caramel, floral, metal, dust, bread, and light hops. Easy drinking amber perhaps a bit thin.

Bottle. Pours amber, medium tan head. Nose is caramel, toast. Flavor is above medium sweetness from the caramel malts and a touch of roastiness. Medium and average carbonation, mild finish. Enjoyable amber ale.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice amber in color with a frothy almond head. Not much aroma to this one because it is not an overly-hopped amber and does not have a ton of maltiness to it either. A good well-balanced taste that has both a sweet and sour presence but only a minimal amount of each. The beer is nice and light and not too aggressive, but sits well on the palate. If you like a lot of flavor in your beer, this one may not be for you; but if youíre a minimalist who wants to taste a good simple beer done right, then this may be a good choice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours slightly hazy mahogany w/ a full khaki head that lingers and leaves good lacing. Aromas of brown sugar, caramel, dark chocolate, toffee and some nuttiness. Smooth and a little creamy. Full bodied w/ light, crisp carbonation. A bit thin on the finish. Predominately malts w/ flavors folling aroma. Hops add a bitter, almost dry finish. Overall, another good Duck-Rabbit brew.
