Bottle. Slightly hazy orange-amber pour with a smaller head. Sweet caramel malts, a little bready, a bit of citrus zest, and some grassy hops. Pretty solid amber ale.

Pours amber with a thick mane of light tan foam. Nose is malty. Very creamy on the palate, its a flavorful beer full of lusty malt flavors with a moderate hops balance. A pleasure to drink, this beer pairs well with cheese and crackers.

Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Bottled. Poured clear light-medium orange with a short eggshell head. The aroma picked up soft caramel and buttered biscuity notes with big orange and grassy hop accents around.. I didn’t like it at first, but it grew on me. The flavor found pale and bready malts at the core, with bitter orange peel, some grainy sugars, and a touch of earth around.. finished a touch sour with citrus leading. Lighter-bodied with low-ish carbonation on the palate.. decent balance, but a little more sour than I wanted.. overall quite drinkable.

Thunder River Amber Ale 4 oz. pour from 12 oz. bottle, split with friends while watching the bowl games. Thanks, iradog, for picking this up in Green Bay and sharing. Pours a light amber / orange / tan color with a bit of haze and a small amount of beige head. Smells of caramel, sharp apple, and leather. A touch of Indian food in the aroma and flavor. Interesting, spicy flavor features sharp apple, quinine, and white grape juice as well as a spicy, dry aftertaste. Very interesting and quirky taste overall. Medium body. Lively palate. The second and my favorite of five Thunder River beers I sampled in a row.

Pours a copper color with a foamy off white head. Has a very light hop aroma. The carbonation is high and the taste is rather hoppy, similar in style to a traditional irish ale. The flavor also has a trace of caramel malt with a light fruity note and a bitter finish.
