Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - JUL 26, 2009
Very nice pour, great sticky head and beautiful ruddy amber color. Dry malt extract and a touch of artificfial sweetner on the nose with grainy bitterness to balance.. Sweet malt palate gives way to a very nice hoppy bitterness. Somewhat floral hop spice lingers in the mouth. 84

Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Bottle from Whole Foods in Greenville, SC. Pretty good all-around amber. Nothing extreme, but not bad. It won’t impress you with a big amount hops. Just an average amber.

On tap at the Flying Saucer - poured a copper color with little head. Aroma was sweet and came across with caramel malt and bread. Taste was malty and earthy with decent carbonation. A slightly average amber ale.

ChainGangGuy (4375) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 26, 2009
12 ounce bottle - $1.69 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia. Appearance: Pours a clear, dark amber body with a large, frothy, off-white head. Fair amount of lacing on the way down. Smell: Malty, lightly sweet-smelling blend of caramel and pale malts with, as the taste, some toasty hints. Light fruit notes. Spicy, earthy, maybe even a tad herbal hop scent. Taste: Pale and caramel malts, a tad toasty, and with a medium amount of slight candyish sweetness. Touch of fruitiness. Spicy, lightly earthy hop character, seemingly English, and with only a medium-low amount of bitterness. Finishes dry, malty, and with merest bit of lingering bitterness. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A pleasant, reasonably well-balanced amber ale. I liked it well enough. Though, if you’re interests reside with the bitter, tongue-pinching West Coast ambers, you might want to look elsewhere.

GodOfThunder (1247) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2009
Pours amber. Taste is musty and old. Bland caramel and grain. Pretty typical amber, not that great.

Rustyham (1724) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - APR 20, 2009
This, even though it was right out of the bottle, tasted like it had been sitting around for a few days. That dusty old Abita flavor. At Beerfest Miami 09

RVABeerstro (13) - USA - APR 11, 2009
Bottle pours deep ruby-brown with thin, fast-disapating head and no lacing. Has slightly sweet caramel malt aroma with a small hop nose. Flavor is rich caramel and a bit of roasted malt, just enough hops for balance. Session beer.
