Bottle--well, it looked good, nice copper color with a small head, but that’s where the good stuff ended. Something like a malt aroma hit you in the nose. The taste was like the color, copper. None of the sweetness of caramel that was expected. High carbonation. Petty’s 1.99 desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Draft at WOB Viera. Medium amber body with little head. Mostly sweet maltiness and a bit thin on the tongue. Not bad but pretty forgettable. JHeath99 (1678) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - MAY 24, 2014
Tap from Lazy Dog. Pours a darker amber with a ring of cream colored head. Aroma and taste of malts and not much else. ttroha (516) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Bottle from Ale Yeah! Hazy amber with frothy white head. Aroma of bread, citrus and hops. Taste of bread and bitter hops. Bitter and tangy aftertaste. Lots of carbonation. It’s okay kevdwiz (7) - - MAY 3, 2014 does not count
A bittersweet malt, literally. Taste is: sweet caramel malts, bready, bitter, with some fruit. Pours a nice head.
Good beer to try for those getting used to bitters

Super malt heavy. Garnet in color. Sweet caramel malts with an astringent aftertaste. Toffee notes are also in there. Nothing special. hotstuff (5141) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - APR 3, 2014
Rated on 3-25-2011 (Bottle purchased at Total Wine & More-Ft. Myers, FL) This beer has a large frothy, fizzy beige head with a lengthy retention, transparent amber body, fast rising carbonation, and soapy looking lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, bready, suggestion of citrus, earthy hops, sweet, spicy, and light fruitiness. The taste is lightly bitter, light citrus hops, caramel malt, and bready. The mouthfeel is tingly carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This is just an ok beer for me as it does not have a lot of character to speak of and the flavor was semi-bland.

Draft. Amber with small white head. Aroma of sweet fruit (raspberries) and caramel. Light body that is very sweet throughout, fruit, and some stale notes (cardboard). Malaclemys (464) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Draft pours burnt copper with frothy white head. Aroma of caramel, raspberry, malt, doughy. Taste is fruity, alcohol, solvent, sweet up front with a bitter sweet finish. Very light body along with aromas and flavors and seemed to have an off flavor of acetone. aleichter (31) - - JAN 18, 2014
This is a dark amber with a very good and complex taste. Not to mention the bottle looks pretty sweet. One of my favorite amber beers I have ever had.
