One of my favorites, I’m pretty surprised with the lower reviews. Amber colored ale, creamy smooth taste, nice flavor. Not a giant flavor, but exactly what I want in an amber.

From tap. Pours clear and golden orange with a small off white head. Aroma is toasted malty. Dry and slight breadish. Bitter and toasted malty finish.

"i wasn’t expecting much from this style, as it has limited potential, but this was one of the better alts i’ve had. very smooth, with a nice balance. pleasantly surprised. too many times, a flagship beer is the breweries weakest offering...not the case here."

Draft - Sweet caramel and some light grain. Clear gold with a nice head. Toffee, light grains and a light balanced twig bitterness. Easy drinking.

decaturstevo (6339) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JUN 17, 2014
Deep amber pour with creamy off white head and lace. Aroma is light caramel malt and some resiny hops. Caramel malt front with a resiny hop bitter finish, decent bitter too. Light to medium bodied and a tad fizzy.

Not sure how I haven’t rated this one either. Pretty much exactly how the description makes it sound. Nothing fancy, nothing really special.

Had on draft @ the Pearl Street brewpub, Buffalo,NY .. . scary name for a beer .. . mild malts .. some berry .. unique upfront bitterness .. a bit muddled .. an ok beer at best .. . . Ah, look, it’s just an old, creaky mirror, y’know, sometimes it sounds a little like it’s sneezing, or coughing, or talking softly.
