UPDATED: JAN 28, 2005 Had on tap at the brewery (1/05). Nothing very special about this beer, but I did think it was one of their better styles (I’m a pale ale drinker and I did not like their pale ale attempts). I could not detect much aroma but what I did note was nice and malty. I found the beer to malty as well as crisp and well balanced. scoobyluv (511) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JUN 24, 2006
tastes like raisins and nutmeg. it does have an alcohol burn that i must say that i enjoyed. not a very impressive beer but not bad Ughsmash (7502) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2007
Bottle, picked up in Chattanooga. Poured clear, lighter reddish-orange with a short-lived cap of white head. The aroma picked up lots of over-sweetened caramel malts with the slightest bit of toast to ’em.. fainter dark fruits emerge with warmth, along with some herbal and earthy notes. The flavor again found too-sweet caramel and dark fruits with fizzy herbal and floral bitterness falling off the sides of the tongue.. sweet, tacky finish. Lighter-bodied and too sweet on the palate, but refreshing.. this was certainly drinkable. DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Clear copper color with thin white lacing. Thin up front with bold and slightly aspicy lingering finish. Good overall. haddon90 (1634) - Newport Beach, California, USA - SEP 27, 2003
Nice copper color with some white head. Not much though. Some malt in the aroma and flavor. Smooth and enjoyable. On tap at the brewhouse in Chattanooga.

Draft-Big River Brewery-Chattanooga, TN. This beer had a small sized white head that contained fine sized bubbles that was mostly lasting. The body was uncarbonated and transparent with an orange hue. It had a malty nose and a bitter and hoppy flavor to it. The mouthfeel was bitter and fairly smooth. This was a light-medium bodied beer that was just so-so. PorterPounder (8359) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAY 30, 2004
Had on tap at the Chattanooga location. Dark golden appearance, good sized head. Sweet, malty aroma. Has a slight nutty taste to it. Very smooth mouthfeel, quite pleasant to say the least. Above average for a brewpub lager. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Sweet malty nutty flavors. Very smooth and easy to drink. A good session beer. beeryum (652) - Norcross, Georgia, USA - JUN 20, 2005
Draft, light copper. I got a malty aroma on this. Beer was thin but malty, and hints of subdued spicy hops. Slightly bitter finish, and decent mouthfeel. I felt this was one of their better beers I had, behind the stout and IPA.
