True to our pirate roots here along the southern border of Louisiana. The French called the local pirates Jacques, but our Brewster insists on the female spelling Jaque. Amberjaque is a light amber ale made with Pale malts, Rye, and Caramel malts. A wonderful refreshing light bodied ale, it’s the perfect starter beer. The aroma hops provide a hint of spice, but there is no bitterness in this beer. Second only to Southern Pecan as one of our signature beers.

Hazy light amber colour. Aroma is sweaty and caramelly. Body is mainly caramelly wiht light doughy notes and a hint of toast from the hops, which seem fuggley. This isn’t made with extract, is it? It has that gasoline-like note and slight underattenuation I had in a lot of my old extract homebrews. Nonetheless, my head’s in Mississippi. Cheers, Jay!

Draught at Mellow Mushroom - Ocean Springs, MS. Pours clear amber with an average frothy white mostly diminishing head, fair lacing. Aroma is average malt (caramel, grain, nutty), average hops (flowers, pine), light yeast (sweat) with notes of vegetable. Light bodied, oily texture, average carbonation and a bitter finish. Average duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

easty, hoppy, bitterness, malt and yeast finish with spice again. Nitro creaminess. Acidic palate. Bit of lace. Yeast at bottom of bottles. Medium mouthfeel. Unusual, Southern experiment. What’s next for this brewery? Thanks JoeyC by way of Aracauna.

3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 25, 2005
12oz bottle thanks to SpringsLicker for the new state. Has an interesting smell of honey, butter, fuesal scents, and some heavy malt extract syrup. Semi-sweet over the middle, but finishes very putrid, with some burning rubbish or burnt vegetable flavors. Very hard to swallow. The rye is evident, I guess, it seems to be present in a roasted and grainy, sour flavor. Not as bad as some that I’ve had, but difficult to swallow at times.

Ernest (7887) - 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.

Radek Kliber (7501) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - MAY 24, 2005
Strong earthy British hop character, lighter fruity malt character. Neat dark gold brew with creamy top. Biter front, very smooth, good finish with gentle hopping. Interesting beer.

BBB63 (6567) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAY 19, 2005
Handbottled by Jay and sent by Jacob: Hey I been to Kiln sadly when I lived in Biloxi. How can Kiln support a brewery? Well who knows...on to the beer. Pours a hazy coppery hue with a big frothy head and good lace. The aroma has notes of bready and caramel malts, some floral qualities and an off nose that is soapy in nature. The taste starts malty and slightly sweet with some bitters in the background. The short finish has a touch of rye but little else. The feel is lively and easy to drink. Well, it’s a Mississippi rating that I so rightfully deserve. The beer is get so-so at best. Will try the Southern Pecan next and hope for better things.

Pailhead (6543) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - JUN 29, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of wolhfs. Roasty, nutty, hops, and something else that’s a little funky and throws things off. Pours a cloudy orange with an insignificant white head. Roasty and nutty with a light hop finish. Like the aroma, there’s something in the flavor that’s just off.

goldtwins (4319) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 10, 2005
Thanks to Aracauna for bringing this to our AA meeting. Hazy amber color. Aroma was malty and even a little nutty. Caramel and malty flavors with a light hop finish. Light to a slightly medium body.
