I had this beer a long time ago and was completely blown away. By far the best beer these guys have brewed, and I’m sorry to hear that they discontinued it, unless I’m mistaken. Seems that biz is booming, so I hope that one day they’ll bring it back. It had a rich body, sharp rye bite, and a very very clean finish as all their beers have.

UPDATED: NOV 23, 2007 This and other beers were tasted at the Mellow Mushroom in Ocean Springs, MS. They state that have fifty beers to try. This a local beer and they had 4 on tap. The Amber Jacques was the best. I had two pints The head was a frothy white with a clear amber color. The caramel flavors were evident with a nice balance of hops and malts. It was not quite medium in body. It is smooth beer with a clean finish. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007

On tap @ Hal&Mal’s A really odd I assume rye aroma is kind of nice, definatly unique. Nice amber appearance with short lived cream colored head. The uniqueness of this brew hits you right away. The rye comes through nicely, has an odd mediterranian bread taste too it. Don’t know where it comes from, but I picked up a mild mixture of bread and herbs. Fairly thin palate with nice bittering that works well for this flavor profile. Overall drinkable, fairly unique, I’ll have it again.

On tap at the Mellow Mushroom in Flowood, MS. Nice aroma, not much of a head. Nice amber color. Great flavor, not as strong as the southern pecan but very tasty. Uffda43 (3) - Gulfport, Mississippi, USA - DEC 28, 2006 does not count
I have found a beer I absolutely love! tried one on draft at a local bar and went to the nearest supermarket that sold it and bought a party pig (mini keg). I am almost out and already have a back-up waiting. Best American Amber Ale I have tasted so far. I like it better than my old favorite, Newcastle Brown Ale. pojo41 (315) - Hattiesburg, Mississippi, USA - NOV 18, 2006
Draft. Smooth tasting without any bitterness. Creamy head but, it didn’t last. Pretty tasty stuff from Mississippi’s first Brewery. jzzbassman (1634) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 11, 2006
Party Pig: Pours a copper color with a compact head. THis is really hurt by an unpleasant garbage like aroma, although it is faint. Flavor is much better, with the rye subtle, although more noticable as it warms. A nice session. Ernest (7696) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 28, 2006
Multiple samples at GABF 2006.
Body is light amber.
Aroma is lightly malty (cookie), with a strong note of buttery diacetyl.
Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter, unclean.
Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
Pretty much a diacetyl bomb with an unpleasant aftertaste to match.
