ben4321 (6142) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - FEB 20, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 23, 2012 Location: 12 oz bottle at Moonshine Restaurant in Austin, 2/20/12

Aroma: It has an aroma of sweet malts, caramel, and some toast
Appearance: This one pours a clear amber color with minimal head
Flavor: The taste is medium sweet, on the malty side, with a fairly light bitterness
Palate: This one is fairly light and drinkable on the mouth, it borders on watery
Overall Impression: This is a drinkable beer, but nothing too exciting. It was fine, but I wouldnt rush out to try it again.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2012 OK, it?s not great but it was nice to drink while checking out the 6th Street scene at Austin. Easy to drink, not very hoppy. Nutty malt flavor.

Average nose with notes of barley and some hops and caramel followed by a much better impression on the tongue, where the toffee and caramel notes shine, especially in the aftertaste. I also love the label. Good session ale overall.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2011
Bottle:   Oklahoma Suks bottle, deeper amber, a little dirty, large rocky off-white head, nice lacing.   Soft malty notes on the nose, even a smigen of fruitiness.   Low hops.   Straight foward maltiness up front, decent body, clean finish.   Nothing fancy, nothing out of the ordinary, but I actually liked this one because it was fairly smooth, clean, minor sweetness, malty without being grainy, and it has a low hop profile.   Enjoyed this more than I thought I would.   Thanks Bill for the bottle!

(12oz bottle dated 4-21-11 thanks to mar) clear amber with a ring of fine off-white bubbles. Nose of stale grain, bit like trash, old fruit. Taste of raw grain, toasty, a bit spicy and watery in body.

Too sweet and little hop presence. Taste is of nutty malt and mild chocolate. Not much going on here.

Austin Amber has a thin, beige head and a clear, brown or copper appearance, with some streaming bubbles and a little bit of thin lacing down the glass. The aroma is faint, but a tad bit of roasted barley is detected. Taste is of barley malt, mild coffee, and water. Almost no hop bitterness presents itself. The mouthfeel is light and watery, and Austin Amber finishes dry and dull. To me, this is more characteristic of a lager than an ale. Overall, I found it to be borderline and bland. RJT

Pours with an old worn penny color. Slightly hazy, but good luminescence. Nose is malt and caramel. Carbonation is light, which is a positive for this style. Rounded taste of brown sugar is nicely offset by hops in mid-palate. Bready undertones add some depth. As ales go, this has winner winner chicken dinner written all over it.
