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.

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.

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.

brewski519 (644) - Morrisville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 3, 2009
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 (4493) - 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.
