Poured as a 4 oz taster in Greensboro pub. Surprising dark coffee notes, malt, beautiful color, sweetness counters the coffee enough that the wife, who doesn’t like coffee, likes. Went very well with the burger for lunch.

I enjoyed this one for the style. Ambers are hit or miss for me. Nice balance with a semi-creamy texture. Malty with mild hop content....almost like a lighter brown. Friend from GA brought me a few beers from this brewer....all were decent.

From tap. Pours cloudy orange with a small off white head. Aroma is toasted malty with a slight caramelish note. Bitter, toasted malty. Dry, bitter and caramelish malty finish.

cheap (5413) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Bot. Smells like a big malty brew. Looks like a yuengy. Big malty taste. Middle goes a little medicinal. Some carbonation. Slightly cooler than room temperature. A little fruit in there sometimes, alky soaked fruit, just a little. Gets a little difficult near the end. Yes, malt effects are prevalent throughout the session. Not sure if any hops are detected or not.

HourGlass13 (664) - North Carolina, USA - MAY 29, 2016
Pours a nice copper color, with a medium, bubbly, off white head. The aroma is toffee, nuts, raisins, and some light cardamon. Sweet flavor throughout.. Medium body, a little crisp and harsh. This is a good, malty amber ale.

Bufordbrewer (37) - Georgia, USA - MAY 12, 2016
Draft at Black Pelican in Kill Devil Hill, NC Sweet, caramel, malt, no bitterness at all. Clear amber color with tan head. A bit thin and unimpressive.

kingaugusta (250) - Georgia, USA - NOV 30, 2015
coppery and a little hazy with a quick white head. nose is a fairly generic amber ale with a little bit of sweetness and a touch of oak. Flavor profile is similar but a little sweeter and with tones of breadand just a little bit of hop bitterness. Backside has almost a pasta feel to it. a little weird but unremarkable

hopscotch (10707) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 4, 2015
Bottle... Pours clear and dirty-orange with a small, white head. Toffee and bready notes, along with a port/golden raisin-like ester are the aromatic highlights. Light-bodied with zippy carbonation. The flavor is medium-roast malty and very well-balanced. Crisp, clean, refreshing finish. Well done. Good amber ale. Bottle courtesy of Tinkerbell!

Pours clear amber with white head. Aroma of caramel, grass, and toffee. Flavor of caramel with grass. Nothing really else. Bitter lingers. Palate is thin like water. Its ok

Outstanding Amber / American pale ale. I see it’s listed as an amber, but it to me, it definitely drank like an APA. I enjoyed two pints of this beaut on draft at Sugar Creek in Nags Head. The beer poured a bright and clean copper color with an ample off-white head. The head laced nicely around the inside of the glass. The nose was very inviting with plentiful notes of fresh, spicy and bold hops. The flavors followed suit, with a ton of full and bold happiness. There was also plenty of bready and biscuit flavored malts. The finish was smooth and slightly creamy with more fruity and spicy hops. Really nice ale!
