This one has a thin, white head, and a nice malty aroma. I’m lovin’ the clear amber color and it’s medium malty flavor and slightly bitter finish. Jlo7399 (218) - Florida, USA - SEP 18, 2011
Pours a reddish amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma is bready malts and a little brown sugary sweetness. Tastes of bread, grapefruit and a little hoppy bitterness on the finish. Clean finish. A good red ale. Cashazza (217) - Morganville, Maryland, USA - AUG 4, 2004
I picked this up at a little pub in the Smokey Mountains, not expecting to find anything good...This is a very nice amber ale! Dark copper color with a thick, creamy head. Malty with caramel, wood, citrus/fruit, and hopped nicely, too. beerandrugby (210) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 3, 2004
Nicely done ale! I loved the balance of the malt with its slight fruit notes and the bite of the hops. tobias (208) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - NOV 17, 2004
bottle: the pour is golden copper with a nice offwhite head. nice sweet carmel malty aroma, with some citrus. the flavor is sweet and fruity. nicely balanced by the bitterness. a very drinkable beer.

Bottle. Really smooth malty aroma. Not too sweet. Caramel, honey. Taste is very malty for the style, but surprisingly balanced with a light bitterness to finish. Very good. BlackWarrior (203) - Spartanburg, South Carolina, USA - AUG 29, 2011
Light brown/copper pour with some haziness and lingering khaki head - good lacing. Aroma of toasted malts, some piney hops and nuts. Carbonation was aggressive at first, but faded almost immediately. Medium body and bit creamy in texture. Malty sweetness, with some dark chocolate and sweetbread notes. Balanced, but on the malty side with a dry finish. Subtle lingering bitterness. I like this one.

On tap in Knoxville Mellow Mushroom: Great reddish amber color. thick creamy tan head. good lacing. floral hop aroma. full mouthfeel with great bitterness. It was very nice. Hopswagger (199) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 8, 2013
P: Clear amber brewed tea appearance with minimal khaki head. A foamy halo rest on top leaving the occasional leg of lace behind.
S: Toasted italian herb and cheese Subway bread, toasted caramel and orange juice and bitter orange peel.
T/M: Toasted caramel, bready malt, orange peel and spicy pippali pepper. Finishes dry with lemon zest and toast. Prickly moderate body. Once the beer warns it starts to have a metallic aftertaste to it. It’s not bad but does throw it off a bit.
O: Well balance and simple. An easy drinking ale to throw back after a long day of work. The spicy kick at the end really makes this. Without it I think it would be dull. DEbeer (192) - West Virginia, USA - JUN 8, 2003
I am really not an amber fan, so I may not be doing this beer justice. It wasn't bad, but it did seem to have too much of a carmel-candy taste after a few drinks. The aroma was nice, however.
