4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Finally a local beer from Decatur! Let’s see if it can contend with the mainstream craft beers...
Appearance: amber/red, typical frothy head, nice lacing
Flavor: Mildly biscuity, light malty nutty flavor. It is a good red/amber with a lot of flavor, surprising for only 4.5%. Not at all like an ’American’ red ale with too much hops. Something is unique about the aftertaste and bitterness... the malt / bitter is so balanced that neither becomes apparent by itself - perfect harmony! Very impressed.
Palate: Mild, long, and delicious!
Awesome taste, very sessionable.
Glad I got to try this - it’s probably one of the best red/amber ales I’ve ever tasted.
It’s hard to deny this beer room in my fridge from the growler shop.
Need to find it around more places in Atlanta!
Pours a hazy copper red on tap with fluffy tan head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of nice toasty malts and a mild fruity ale yeast on the back, taste follows with a hint of roast. One of the better ones of the day for sure, super drinkable. jb (3253) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 8, 2017
Listed elsewhere as an Irish Red, this was different than a typical amber, lots of roasted stout-like character. Very very light as it was a session ale. Enjoyable. bytemesis (8384) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 8, 2016
Tap. Pours clear Amber, large off white head, dissipate slowly, nice lacing. Aroma of dust, caramel, root beer. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, dusty. Light body. Odd. Suttree (6385) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 2, 2016
So, it a session amber? Isn’t that kind of redundant? I mean, I just usually assume an amber is a session ale, unless they call an "Imperial Amber" or something goofy like that. Anyway, this was a little malty, with hints of toast and chocolate, and and subtle, woody hops. ordybill (1758) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - APR 29, 2016
Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a reddish brown color with a giant thick tan head. The aroma is hops and malt. The taste is a heavy on grain and has a metallic aftertaste. If the metal taste was removed it would have a much higher score.

12 ounce can. Amber red in color. Lots of caramel notes. Ok overall, but nothing too amazing. jw0406 (1275) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - NOV 30, 2015
12 oz can pours a dark red color with a nice white head. Aromas of caramel, sweet malt, light good. Light bodied, nice offering

Sample at the brewery. Nice, cloudy ruby-brown color, with crap-tons of foam (but that was probably the idle tap line, not the beer). The nose is bready malts, black tea, and caramel. The flavor is malty, but relatively dry, with not much hop bitterness, and a touch of roastiness. Medium body, grainy, and thick. This is a nice, easy Irish ale. Great malt character, and a unique flavor. chinchill (4995) - South Carolina, USA - APR 12, 2015
Hoppy for style, like a red APA. Nearly as hoppy and bitter as an IPA.
O too bitter for style, especially in the aftertaste. Travlr (24759) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Draft at the source. Beautiful golden amber color, thick tan head. Nice aroma of fruit and nuts. Taste is toasted fruity caramel. Nice.
