Drake (13152) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2008
12 oz. bottle from Sam’s Quik Shop. Deep red color with a quickly disappearing head. Malty with a fruity hop aroma. Candy-like but still pleasant. Taste is thin with vegetal hops and lots of sugary malt notes. Thin body.

Bottle. Poura s clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma is a faint caramel and raisin malt. Decent lacing on the glass. The taste is a bready malt with a light carmel. Easy to drink with a nice dry finish, didnt taste the "hop finish" as advertised but glad to see AB finally coming around to the craft brews.

jcwattsrugger (12298) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - SEP 27, 2008
12oz bottle-pours a thin tan head with large bubbles and copper color. Aroma is medium malt-caramel, secondary citrus/perfumy hops. Taste is medium malt-caramel, dry and bitter citrus/perfumy ops, some cherry. Rougher than the original American Ale by Cricket Hill. Also a bit over carbonated. Thanks decaturstevo for picking this out.

Bottle @ CBF, 2010.
Pours clear amber with a small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma is sweet, lots of caramel. Highish carbonation, fine dry mouthfeel. Flavour has caramel, sweetness, light metallic. Some citric and metallic bitterness. Not impressive.

Dogbrick (12252) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Sample at Montgomery Inn in Dublin. The beer is a mostly clear amber-brown color with a medium light beige head that recedes quickly. Thin rings of lacing on the glass. Mildly sweet toasted malt aroma. Light body with sweet caramel malt flavor and faint hops. The finish is sweet and malty and does not linger long. About what I expected overall.

On tap inside Sea World, San Diego. Hey, it was free. Poured a medium amber color with a small sized off white head. There is really not much I can add that 400+ other people havent already said...

Sammy (11516) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2009
Bomber, where is good till date? Pours amber with foaming head, that does leave some lacing. Mildly barleywine aroma. Some bitterness, and barley, barleywine-red cross style. Drinkable. About average mouthfeel, creamy by the foam. Above-average carbonation. Not bad for Bud.

shrubber85 (10959) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2008
Bottle. Creamy caramel malt aroma with a hint of hops . Dark amber color with small head. Caramel malt and moderate pine hops flavor. A very nice amber ale - probably won’t be a hit with regular A-B drinkers though.
