TizzleJizzle (791) - Garland, Texas, USA - JUL 20, 2014
12 oz bottle. Poured an deep amber color and slightly unfiltered with a thin tan head. Taste of caramel malts, sweet malts, and dough. Low-medium carbonation, medium body. Wow, very surprised by this beer. One of the better offerings from Franconia and a damn fine amber.

kevinator (2171) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUL 9, 2014
One of their better beers. Deep amber brown color with a small white head. Aroma was slightly sweet and malty. Medium-weight palate with low carbonation. Pretty smooth. Robust flavor with caramel and roasted malts. The hops bitterness was low. Good beer.

legion242 (2344) - Richardson, Texas, USA - JUL 2, 2014
Poured a pretty deep russet. Medium head. Nose of sweet malt in a good way. In the mouth it is a tiny bit thin but the flavours of mixing malts is nice.

SudsMcDuff (8294) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - JUN 1, 2014
a slightly different take on an amber .. deep tawny .. . head is quite good, as is the lacing .. . my sandwiches are burning .. . medium grain, harsh sweetness, and pretzel crust .. . easy mouth .. . not a bad amber at all, but different- not exactly sure why, just different .. . .

DATE TIP: Hold doors. Pull the chair out for your date. Burp your date. Change your date.. oh god! you are on a date with a baby.. ok, stay cool......

On tap at BTBF 2014. Amber in color with an average sized off-white head. Aroma is of malt, grain and leaves. Taste is of grain, woody hops and toffee.
