on tap @ Fifty West / Cincinnati OH --- Clear medium / dark amber color, ivory head cover, streamers of lace. Taste is malt with mild oak overtones that cruises through the palate to a mildly hopped finish. Quite drinkable, but light, and, ultimately,not memorable.

Patrickctenchi (6692) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - SEP 4, 2015
Draft: Clear amber with a short white head. Toasty, caramel aroma. Taste has a little breadheel, caramel malt..... A little earthy/nut bitterness. Not bad, just a bit plain.

Draft to taster at 50W. Looks solid; not like an amber though. Harvest. Gold with eggshell head that quickly dissipates into lacing. Smells mildly malty with soft notes of grain and a touch of toast. Tastes like it smells with some hops as well. Mouthfeel is medium-light to medium-bodied. Solid beer.

Draft pour at brew pub pour amber with moderate ecru head. Nose clean caramel malt, mild toffee. Taste typical toffee and malt. Light bitter mid palate. Fairly clean flavors throughout.

alexsdad06 (10641) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Draft at Fifty West. Pours a clear amber color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted bready malts, caramel, herbal, earthy, and grassy hops, mild plus bitterness, dry, solid amber ale.

phaleslu (10553) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 1, 2015
Draft at The Brass Tap - U Square. Pours a clear amber on the lighter end of the spectrum - golden-orange, perhaps - with a small off-white head that laces the glass quite a bit. A little bit of grassy and earthy hops accent a nice amber, lightly sweet, lightly toasted malt profile. A little bit of cereal and bread character, too. Light-bodied, with a really smooth mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Incredibly drinkable and impeccably balanced. I really dug this. I find it preferable to the 6% version of yore. Well done.

Tmoney99 (14860) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 17, 2014
Tap. Poured a clear dark amber color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate soft hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Good sweet session beer.

4oz on tap at the brewpub. Mostly clear amber color, with a thin off-white head, leaving good ropes of lace. Really nice kind of herbal, grassy hop to this. A lot less distracting than the hop profile I usually encounter in a hoppy amber, seems much more appropriate for the style. Light to medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation, light slick.. Some caramel, good toasty bready malt, mildly spicy. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet, pleasant dryness in the finish. A tasty, balanced amber ale with a very pleasant appropriate flavor profile. I dig it
