Very red through the light; perfectly creamy looking head consistency. Red metal & wet leather aroma. Creamy smooth malted body; one of the better tasting ambers I’ve had in a good while. Indeed, smooth almost to a fault, and the palate barely register, though very easy to drink. Tastes almost nitro pumped, even out of the bottle. Frankly, I’m very impressed. One of the better beers I’ve had in North Carolina.

On tap at the Chattanooga Taco Mac. Looks and tastes great. One of the best amber ales I’ve tried. Cool logo too!

GABF 2007. Beer is clear, light brown. Head is small, white, frothy, mostly and quickly diminishing head.<P>The aroma is nice—wonderful melding of fruit esters and malt. Breaks down to be malty with moderate notes of biscuit, toasted grain, toasted bread crust and caramel; Hoppy with moderate notes of honeysuckle flowers, herb; Light yeasty note of basement; Miscellaneous trace note of brine, light notes of vibrant tropical fruit and cola.<P>The flavor is lightly acidic, light/moderately sweet, lightly bitter with a long, moderately bitter, lightly sweet finish.<P>The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.<P>Wonderful effort.

Amber red color with spotty bubbly white head that seems to list from side to side on top of the beer. A good deep whiff returns smells like cherries, sweet syrup, fruits, but they are subtle. A very good flavor for an amber/red but not quite up there with Nugget Nectar (my favorite). I would drink this on a regular basis if it were possible. I think Duck-Rabbit does a really good job on all their beers. Yum. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-11-2007 15:24:45

Pours a rich light brown. Aroma is of malted tea. taste is Carmel in the start finished with a healthy bitterness that rounds out the flavor. A spicy version of an amber. Very nice.

A pretty decent beer, fairly drinkable, amber color (of course). Malty, with a nice clean finish.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2007 Bottle, best by 04-07. Red-orange with medium head that fades pretty quickly. Aroma is sweet malt, nuts and Belgian yeast-like bubblegum esters. Taste is similar, with esters on front and cereal grain and slight hops on the end. I’m guessing the low score is from it not being according to "style", and not being exactly like every other amber. It is not what I would expect in an amber, but I like beers that think balance doesn’t always have to begin at 50 IBUs. Quality beer.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2008 *$1.50 single purchased at Bruisin’ Ales in Asheville, NC.* Appearance: Pours a gorgeous deep amber body with an amble, off-white head. Smell: Toasted malt aroma of bread crusts with a vague fruitiness and only a faint hint of hops. Taste: Toasted malts with a pinch of caramel sweetness and nuttiness. There’s a little kick of roastiness near the clean finish. The hops are slight at best, and are really an afterthought in this malt-dominant beer. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A tasty, highly drinkable amber that makes for a fine session beer.
