FROTHINGSLOSH (8377) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 7, 2018
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy honey brown color with a huge foamy tan head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweetish and toasty with bread crust and honey notes. The flavor tangy and sweetish with honey, tobacco, malt and bread crust. Medium length finish. Medium body. Decent.

Stubby bottle. Cloudy dark amber color with a small beige head and minimal retention. Sparse lacing. Medium mouthfeel. Light caramel flavor followed by a short carbonated finish. It's okay. Kinda bland. katrinaez (2412) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2017 thick, rich malty aroma, taste not as strong as the smell but malts present with a lingering sweetness, bottle. dwyerpg (6582) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 7, 2017
Not a huge amber fan but this was decent. Medium malt body, a body that isn't too thick or thin. Tasty. Subliminal64 (263) - London, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 14, 2017

2015 BJCP Category: 19A American Amber Ale
AROMA: Sweet confectionery-like malt presence (caramel, toffee). Slight lemon sherry presence (oxidation). Minor earthy hop character. 8/12
APPEARANCE: Deep mahogany brown/almost magenta. Hazy, no visible CO2. Small off-white head mostly dissipates. 1/3
FLAVOR: Moderate caramel malt flavor throughout (especially up front). Sweet, but far from cloying. Moderate earthy hop presence and bitterness; enough to offer balance. Some lemon sherry/cardboard presence lurks in the background. Though it’s more to spec than not, the palette is too mild and oxidized to be appreciated. 11/20
MOUTHFEEL: Medium body with medium-low carbonation. Quite smooth and comfortable. No residual sweetness. Plenty of flavor and drinkability for 5% ABV. 4/5
OVERALL IMPRESSION: There’s probably a good recipe to this beer, but the finished product doesn’t do it justice. What should be a classic example is just meh. 5/10
TOTAL SCORE: 29/50
Cool bottle. Read pour, thin white head. Aroma of malts. Flavor is similar. Simple, malts, caramel. It’s sweet. Decent. alexsdad06 (11414) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - NOV 4, 2016
12 oz stubby bottle at home. Pours a clear amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have light toasted malts, caramel, floral, grass, mostly just a regular boring amber, I won’t revisit this. RobertDale (7052) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - SEP 14, 2016
Sample at KC Beerfest 2016. Comes a dark amber with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, caramel, and fruit. Taste is malt, caramel, dark fruit, and some grass. Just average. AndrewTeague (14) - Arkansas, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Enjoyed the maltiness and the lower hops bitterness. Not much aroma. Clear in appearance
