Appearance: Served up a clear, though quite dark amber-hued body with a thinnish, but lasting, white head.
Smell: Pale malts, some inclusion of toasted bread and a sweetish caramel glaze paired with light notes of citrus fruit and herbs.
Taste: A common start of pale, toasty, and caramel-minded maltiness. Medium-light sweetness throughout. Woodsy, lightly floral, lightly citrusy hops and bitterness. There’s a growing herbal, tea-like hint in the background. Bittersweet finish with a lingering spiciness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: It’s pretty good, fairly drinkable, and likable for an amber. emacgee (4704) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2009
WBF. Pours a dark amber with a onef inger offwhite head. The nose is shows some citrus rind bitterness, sweet caramel malt, mild leafy character. Flavor is sweet, mild bitterness, caramel, well balanced malt to hop ratio. Palate is a tad bitter with a residual sweetness. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2010

Draft sample at KBJ2010. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted malt and hop aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Sampled at the brewery. Good brew, but the selection of styles was causing the beers to run together in my mind at this point. Amber, pale ale, ESB, etc... none of them really stood apart from the others.

On tap at the brewery whilst waiting for our to-go pizza - turns out they don’t deliver to Knoxville. Dark caramel colored, with a thin tan head. Nutty, ever-so-slightly smokey aroma. Earthy malt flavors up front, with some caramel notes. Mildly bitter finish. aracauna (3651) - Georgia, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Quite quaffable. This won’t be remembered in the morning but the caramel malt sure kept me from having trouble drinking it. Drake (14059) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 5, 2009
