Poured a dark copper color with not much head, any disipated before the beer was gone. Goood Carbonation. Rich malty aroma. Taste was very malty, with a bit of a sharp afterbite. I wasn’t really excited by this.

Bottle at Nya Tröls, Malmö. Clear orange coloured with a small off-white head. Malty aroma of caramel and roasted bread. Fruity flavour of caramel, bread and hops. Hoppy finish.

Bottled. Hazed amber thin lasting head. Aroma is caramel. Flavor is light caramel and bland sweetness. A funny lasting aftertaste is the only part that stood out--caramel but also long and thicker lasting on tongue. Simple and good

So far I have not been impressed by Thomas Creek. The Amber however is better imho than what it is rated. Decent smooth drinker but still far from impressed.

I like Ambers. there is nothing great or good about them, but there is rarely ever a bad amber. I’ve read on here many times the word non-offensive and usually its meant as a negative. I don’t always see it that way. If it’s not bad, that’s better than bad. And consider how easy to drink ambers are I think that would classify as enjoyable. Not world-beating for sure, but enjoyable is what I look for in a "session" beer. That said, Thomas Creek specifically. A nice little hop profile with emphasis on little with crystal-y malt flavors. The appearence, like the flavor was nondescript and nice. All in all the word to use for this beer, just like one of those girls you had a good time with on the date who was a 6 in looks and 6 in personality but you wouldnt want to date exclusively or take home to mom and keep forever or anything. She’s "nice"

Dogbrick (8950) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Sample at the Day Before Labor Day party. The beer is a clear amber-copper color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Sticky rings of lacing. Malty aroma with notes of caramel and mild hops. Light body with caramel malt and weak hops flavors. The finish is malty with a short sweet aftertaste. Really nothing positive or negative to say about this beer, it simply exists.

bubbleflubber (1896) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - SEP 6, 2009
On draught at the High Country Beer Fest, it pours amber into the glass, with a small froth cap. Caramel malt aroma with some toast in there. The flavors are malty, with caramel, some biscuity notes, and nods to tannic acid and possibly a touch of copper. I’ve made this sound much bigger than it actually is, as the rest of the brew is lackluster. The finish is of toast and dry-hopping, with a medium body and dull mouthfeel. It’s not a substantive brew on the palate, and after a couple of pulls, loses interest for me. It falls into the vast ocean of mediocrity, which is unfortunate.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear reddish copper color with a thin frothy head. Good head retention. Aroma is caramel, toasted malts and light toffee. Taste is caramel, leafy hops, light solvent alcohol and light tea. Thin-medium bodied. Good beer.
