Tap at Churchkey for the CBC. Poured a pretty clear light brown color with a small off-white head. Aroma was caramel toasted malt notes, some light sweet chocolate and a touch of citrus notes. Flavor was light roast, with notes of citrus. Toast. Pretty refreshing after a number of high ABV brews, especially since this is in a style I don’t normally like. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 15, 2011

Tasted on tap at Beer Revolution on 5/4/2011. This amber ale pours a medium amber color from the tap. Small to medium sized off-white foamy head. The aroma is roasty malt, caramel, fruity, nutty and sweet. A medium bodied amber/brown ale. The malts are roasty, caramel and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Nice carbonation. Not sure if this beer is a hoppy amber, a hoppy brown ale or a mix of the two. Sort of reminds me of a roasty Bitter American. Very drinkable beer, a little high in alcohol for a session ale, but it would work as one. There is a touch of residual sweetness at the finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. BMan1113VR (7930) - Los Angeles, California, USA - MAY 3, 2011
On tap. Pours with a very lightly hazed, deep amber-bronze hued body with a lasting off-white head with some lace left behind. Aromas are a bit roasty, caramel, toffee, chocolate, some esters. Way roasty for an "amber". Brown sugar. Flavors are roasty, decently bitter, caramel (strong/deep), brown sugar, nutty, some esters. Neutral balance. Creamy mouthfeel with medium to lively carbonation. Lingering bitterness and no astringencies. Essentially a brown ale in all but color.
