Pours amber with a thin wispy tan head. Notes of woody, herbaceous hops, grassy, vegetable (onion), acidic and tart citrus. Medium to full bodied, moderately resinous with lively, smooth carbonation.

This is a very cloudy amber color w/ a nice white head of tight bubbles and big stripes of lace. The nose is very malty but veering towards toasty warm biscuit aromas more so than deep, sweet ones. A bit of earthy hops float in the background. This comes off dry and highly carbonated at first but sweetens and coats the tongue a bit as it lingers in the mouth. I’d still say it’s a bit overcarbonated though and it does affect drinkability a bit. It finishes w/ a firm, earthy bitterness. This is not a bad amber, a bit uninspiring but decently put together.

Hank1980 (966) - Athens, Georgia, USA - OCT 18, 2010
Bottle. Poured a clearish red with a big soapy head. Nose is of toasted malt, sweet malt, and earthy hops notes. Taste is similar mix of bready, biscuity malt, with some sweetness and some slight hop notes. Finish is sweet and lightly hopped. Overall, an interesting and okay brew.

3.4
merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - OCT 17, 2010
12 ounce bottle pours a clear coppery amber body with a small beige head that drops into some patchy lacing. Aroma is malty caramel with hints of red apple and spicy hops. Body begins light medium but thins considerably as it warms. Taste is sweet caramel, balanced by spicy and floral hop bitterness and an earthiness that lasts into the aftertaste. A decent amber but not very exciting.

3.7
nearbeer (5559) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 29, 2010
Bomber. Copper with a crunchy lasting foam. Light nose of dry spice, caramel and white pepper. Taste is the same, with a toasted nut and ginger note. Light-medium body is very sessionable, dryish and watery, with no notice of the 7.2%.

SSSteve (4006) - - SEP 11, 2010
12oz bottle. a clear dark orange under a large, creamy, white head. aroma has a bit of nuttiness in the malts with some bitter hops. the flavor showcases a nice nutty, bready malt with a balanced amount of bittering hop for the style. drinks like it’s 5% abv. medium body. really good stuff.

Bottle pours a semi cloudy orange/amber beer with a thin off white head. Scent is malt and fruit. Taste bready and hoppy.

3.2
PorterPounder (8226) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 4, 2010
Savannah, Ga. - Habersham Beverages - 22 oz bomber. Dark orange pour, slightly murky, soft pillowy off white head with good lacing. Aroma has a hint of spruce, some sweet cherries. Flavor has a nice subtle bitterness to it with some citrus accents, a hint of caramel and of course some nuttiness. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Overall, decent.

SrSilliGose (3331) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - AUG 26, 2010
too big to be sessionable, and not good enough to want to sip on it for an hour. would have preferred a hoppier, much lighter beer to this grainy caramel fruit hop contraption.

3.5
ContemplateBeer (2089) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Aroma of pine hops, caramel and grapefruit. Appearance is translucent red\brown with tan head. Flavor matches the nose with a slight imperial booziness. Palate is creamy.A pretty nice Amber Ale.
