8/29/11. 12oz bottle. Almost clear amber pour, almost red, with a soapy khaki head that fades quickly and doesn’t lace much. Light malty aroma with touches of caramel, butter, and cardboard. Bitter malt flavor with chocolate, caramel, and a dose of metal. Meh. PorterPounder (8402) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Liquors - 12 oz bottle. Pours a very dark copper with a soft thin off-white head that leaves a small trail of lacing. Aroma has a faint fruity essence to it with hints of coffee. Flavor has some nuttiness, faint traces of unsweetened chocolate and a hint of day old coffee. After my third Napa Smith today - I am detecting a bit of a house strain of yeast. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Overall, not bad. unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - MAY 31, 2011
12oz bottle. Copper color, off-white head. Toasted bread scent, with a touch of butter. Very dry body. Some caramel, some hops. Great lacing. It is a good example of an Amber Ale. Someone did their homework. Seems to be very simple, but just right to style.

The aroma is not that good. It’s got paper, slightly tart fruit, malt, and light hops. The appearance is light amber with a smaller head and some floating particles. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall not such a good beer. Barreras (1689) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - APR 17, 2011
Pours a clear amber color. Aroma is slightly sweet, smells like caramel with a dry hops fragrance. Taste is clean and dry, not very complex. Taste of caramel and slight citrus. An okay amber ale, not something I am running back out to drink.

22 oz. pours golden amber with a small beige head. I smell caramel and nuts. Taste: Caramel malts, nuts and a metallic taste a little wierd. Mouthfeel is thin, hops are almost nonexistent and the finish is dry and short. Not bad but not good. rjplumer (1267) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - APR 2, 2011
Pours a deep clear amber color slightly tan head. Has a mild fruity aroma. The taste also starts of with a mild fruity, almost wine like, taste with a touch of bitterness to add character. It finishes dry and clean. This brew is a pleasant surprise and well worth a try. It has a nice balance and doesn’t overpower an any one category. argo0 (14127) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 29, 2010

Bottle pours a filtered amber with a nice size head, some lace. Nose is bready, caramel, some citrus and fruit. Taste is sweet, lightly bitter, and little fruity. Body is medium and lightly carbonated. Overall, a decent ale. Nothing too great. fluffy (2461) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - OCT 29, 2010
the packaging is really nice, kind of like a wine bottle. pours cherry red with a soft foamy head. aroma is somewhat grainy. flavor is dough and mildly tangy with a somewhat malty. its ok, but not really that interesting.
