The first time I had the Briarpatch Amber I fell in love. There was so much flavor, an explosion of flavor, I didn’t know what to think. I will try to pick it apart for you...great golden amber color, with a pillowy head...so smooth and easy to drink...plenty of malty, caramel, honey sweetness with enough hops to make it so that it’s not syrupy, or unfocused. There’s definitely a lot of flavor in this beer, and it’s definitely not unfocused. One of my new favorites, for sure, especially in the Local category.
From bottle. Amber color; a bit murky. Some hops and sweetness in the nose. Taste is solid with some fruit and grass; aggressive for a amber. Some sweetness in the finish that I didn’t care for. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 9, 2013
Amber pour with a large off-white head. The aroma has some toffee and plastic notes. The flavor has some toffee, strawberry, grass, cocoa and earth notes. There is also a bit of plastic bucket in there, like in the aroma. Still, the flavors work together fairly well. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Great to pair with spicy foods, barbque, smoked meat and tex-mex. A great overal ale makes it a saple T our house. thirdeye11 (6160) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2010
(12oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear copper, lasting creamy tan head. Nose is funky, old corn, and cardboard. Taste of meaty stewed tomatoes, light and old grain, very faint citrus presence. Oily thin body.

Copper-amber pour into thick, off white, frothy head that dissipates quickly into sticky lacing which melts down the glass. Aroma of toasty caramel malt with hint of carmelized citrus. Initial flavor of malted caramel that fades into a spiced hoppy finish. Soonah (1120) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - APR 15, 2010
Poured a hazy copper color with a foamy white to off-white head. The aroma was citrus, malt and possible infection. One sip verified my initial thought. This one had a bug in it. Drainpour.
