A special blend of malted barley - lightly to darkly roasted - creates layers of toasty sweetness, balanced by the citrusy notes of Cascade hops. Burnt orange with a laid back finish, this is the beer of Austin.

Pours a deep copper colour with a fluffy head. Sweet malty aroma, but its pretty mild. Flavor is all malt. Almost no hops here. Not a malt bomb, but light malt. It’s not a bad beer.

Pours amber with a small, light tan head. Smells a bit toasty with hints of toffee. Taste is a bit bitter with hints of toast and toffee. Medium-bodied with a mostly smooth texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Independence Brewing Austin Amber finishes with hints of sweetness.

Roasty, lightweight Amber. Bitter aftertaste, feels very uninspired. This beer just put me off.

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 wouldn’t 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 (6900) - 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.
