Palate: Medium carbonation with a medium mouthfeel. Medium, malty finish.
Overall: Pretty ho hum in the wide world of amber ales.
Rebuy: Probably not. Just not that inticing. jcwattsrugger (12418) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - JUL 11, 2009

Pours a nice amber color with a white head. Aroma is caramel, toast, fruity, and an earthy roast. Flavor is caramel, roast, roast, some fig, and a slightly earthy bitter finish. unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - NOV 12, 2009
On tap @ Asheville Pizza.
Lighter copper color. Creamy head. There was a problem with the lines which made this look like a nitro pour. This actually added to the character of this beer. Aroma has a bit of butter. Flavor is a light toasted malt. Sweet malt. Wooded hop. Sessionable. Tastes smooth and creamy.

Drank from the tap at the brewery. Pours a light brown body with a thin dissipating white head. Taste is very earthy, slightly bready with a crisp aftertaste. Nothing special here, just an average amber. dimenhetfield (2486) - , Florida, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Has a decent color for this style. Darkish brown with a little bit of red tints. The aroma is a little malty with a hint of spice, but overall somewhat bland.
