Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear amber brew, huge tan red that settles down with good head persistence. Aroma of bread, nuts, caramel, fruit. Taste is bready, nutty, with a fruity / sour finish. Enjoyable.

Transfer from BA review on 3-20-13-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a copper amber color with a one finger off white head. The head fades relatively quickly to leave a nice lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is of a roasted malt flavor with some aromas of caramel and a lightly roasted nut smell. Mixed with these smells are some lighter notes of an earthy and herbal hop smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready and lightly roasted malt flavor. Some caramel flavor is present upfront which transitions more toward a toffee flavor more toward the middle as some lighter buttery flavors come to the tongue. With this transition comes some nut flavors of an almond nature. A very light earthy hop flavor joins that tastes at the end to leave a smooth and lightly roasted sweet and caramel flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the rather average to slightly thinner side in terms of its creaminess with a carbonation level that a bit on the higher side. The thinner body and higher carbonation are good for the abv and for making for a rather easy drinking brew while still being heavy enough for the roasted and lightly earthy hoped flavors of the brew.
Overall- A decent drinking brew with a fairly nice flavor profile and a easy drinking feel. Nothing exceptional, but a pretty nice drinker overall.

UPDATED: SEP 20, 2014 Not a very well rounded amber with fruity notes, lingering acidity, and bready malts pointing in different directions.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Not the freshest. Pours a, well...amber body. Nose is grassy with some caramel and cereal grains. Taste is caramel and grains. Decent and drinkable, albeit a little bitter. Better cold then warm. Pretty spot on representation of the style.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle @ home, picked up in Charlotte. Thanks to jcnielsen for shipping to me. Pours a dark rust orange appearance with a brown head that dissipates kind of quickly. Caramel and apple sauce in the nose. Somewhat spicy. Twangy, tart pear/apple fruity flavor. Some toast and caramel. Not all that great. Heavy carbonation.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Officially classified as an amber ale, although reminded me more of an amber lager... either way a decent but unexceptional offering from Duck Rabbit, not as memorable as their milk stout I have sampled previously. Clear amber appearance with long lasting white head, grainy caramel aroma. Taste is a bit weak, although features a nice slightly roasted and sweet interplay of malty notes, almost like a more sophisticated Yuengling lager. A bit thin on the palate as well but still refreshing. On draft this is a reliable and drinkable stand-alone beer.
