Alldaydrinker (559) - Norwood, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 19, 2008
12 oz bottle. Pours an amber colour with a small off white head. Nose of caramel, floral hops, grain and touches of fruit. Initial taste of sweet malts, red fruits, grainy and earthy hops. Finishing with light roasted malts, nuts and bitter hop. Palate duration is average. Light to medium body. Dry finish. Some head retention and lacing of the glass.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JAN 7, 2008
Pours a clear, rusty amber color. A small off-white head settles almost instantly to a wispy film with a small edge. Minimal, spotty lacing noted. The aroma is dry and bland, mostly comprised of dry grains, soured caramel, and moderate floral hops. The flavor follows suit. A boring, uninspired blend of spent caramel, bitter floral hops, and a touch of spice do not impress. The body is watery, maybe just a bit more substantial that your run-of-the-mill pale lager. I found the mouthfeel to be dry and harsh. This is not a good beer. Borderline drainpour.

nearbeer (3590) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 26, 2007
12 oz. Clear copper with medium-sized head that hangs around. Aroma is grainy: sourdough rye bread touched with honey. Taste is sour apples and slight tart cherry. Aftertaste has some herby-grassy hops and chocolatey roasted malt flavors, and is really the best part of the beer. Palate is light-medium, fairly smooth and kind of fizzy-airy at the end.

I only have one note for the Amber, Pilsner and Red Ale - "bland" and I gave them all the same scores. I guess wasnít into writing much at the time.

chadcs (76) - Westminster, South Carolina, USA - SEP 20, 2007
Bottle - Mostly a standard Amber ale... a little over carbonated to my liking. This one didnít really inspire me. Donít think I would prefer to drink this one again.

UPDATED: APR 10, 2010 Rerate Must have really gotten a bad bottle last time around. Solid caramel flavor with some nice nectarine accents. Original 2.1 Chattanooga, Tn. - Riverside Spirits, 12 oz bottle. Murky, medium copper pour, light, but long lasting off-white head. Heavy diactyl aroma - slightly off-putting and thick. Flavor is slightly sweet with some caramel but is dominated by the same diactyl notes found in the aroma. Slighlty buttery, and not too good! Mouthfeel is a bit harsh. Thomas Creek seems to be hit and miss.
