Bottle. Pours amber with thin off white head. Aroma of malt and bread. Taste is mostly malt and caramel. Thin mouthfeel. Bland and boring. nqualls (1452) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 2, 2008
Bottle. Poured a clear copperish color with a one finger off white head. Aroma was of malt and some floral notes. Flavor had sweet malt and bready notes. I was decently impressed with this offering. ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JUL 15, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, mahogany-hued body with a 1½ inch head of off-white foam.
Smell: Faint bready malt aroma with slight herbal notes.
Taste: A blend of bready and biscuity maltiness with a touch of caramel sweetness. Very faint touch of fruitiness. Herbal, tea-like hop character with a mild bitterness. Touch grainy near the drying finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A tolerable Vienna, though it does leave me hankering for an Eliot Ness. jzzbassman (1634) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2008
Draft at Downtown Chattanooga location
Poured a deep ruddy color with an almost white head. Aroma was hidden so well had to foam my nose to find it, but nice when I found it. Flavor is light bodied for the style, but has nice toasted malt and bread flavors as expected.

Hamilton Place. The body was light copper with an off white head. The aroma was rich bread and caramel. There was also some iced black tea. The taste was black tea with some dusty caramel. Good for the style.

Had a bunch of these on draft attending a Chattanooga Lookouts game, then tried it a month later at the Brewery. There is some herb or something in it that just didn’t appeal to me. I know it has won some awards so my review is just that – my opinion. I don’t find a very clean finish – sometimes grassy or herbal that leaves a funky taste with me.
