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. Iíve read on here many times the word non-offensive and usually its meant as a negative. I donít always see it that way. If itís not bad, thatís 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. Sheís "nice"

Dogbrick (8516) - 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 (1850) - 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. Iíve 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. Itís 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.

ScottyP (425) - Brentwood, Tennessee, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Clear amber pour with off white head. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, floral hops, kind of warm like a whiskey. Similar taste with a nice bitter hop finish.

Butters (3816) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2009
Bottle shared with the guys at the Inglorious Emergency Tasting. Very nice bright caramel pour with ring of tan head. Nose of sweet and tart caramel with a slight hint of vegetal on the flavor, but perhaps just nutty. Some hint of floral hop for balance. Good malty amber.

Pours a lasting ring of off-white head with a clear, amber body. Caramel and floral aromas. Flavor is burnt sugar, butter, and apple floral. Semi-dry finish.
