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 (4280) - 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.

12oz shared by smokepot23, thanks Joe. Pours orange with a tan head. Nose is sweet and malty. Taste is sweet malty and overall just ok.

GodOfThunder (1244) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 24, 2009
Pours amber. Taste is musty and old. Bland caramel and grain. Pretty typical amber, not that great.

Rustyham (1711) - 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.

Oakes (11812) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 24, 2009
Hazy orangey-amber. Slightly crackery, caramelly nose. Light, caramelly taste. Decent - it is very basic but pretty well made.

Beershine (5196) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 21, 2009
Bottle. Dark amber with tan head. Sweet caramel malt aroma has some gingerbread. Sweet but low carbonation. Bready in places but boring overall. Too sweet and could become cloying if had more of it. Still, not bad.

DuffMan (6163) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 30, 2008
GABF 2008. Copper amber in colour, palate is on the thin end, with a straightforward crystal malt structure with an interesting pears-in-syrup note and a mildly woody finish. Aside from the thinness, this was a decent amber with some good character.

unclemattie (4035) - Georgia, USA - SEP 25, 2008
12oz bottle. Amber color, long lasting tan head. Aroma of caramel malt. Flavor of bready malt, Bitter finish. Kinda tasty for an amber.
