phaleslu (10326) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 2, 2013
22 oz. bottle via NC trade. Thanks, John! Pours a clear amber on the lighter end of the spectrum with a small off-white head. A later pour was cloudy from sediment in the bottom. The aroma is earthy, leafy, toasty, and nutty; good balance. The flavor brings the same four primary characteristics. Hops are present, very leafy and earthy, with some toasty and amber malts. Light-bodied, with a clean, earthy mouthfeel that finishes toasty and has moderate carbonation. Really nicely done.

12oz can, thanks to Alicia M for sharing! Sticker-on-can. Amber-red color. Half hazy, with fine particles suspended in the body. Thin off-white head, leaving decent bits of lace. Nice toasty and caramel malt. Lightly spicy. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Good hop balance to this, mild earthiness. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp lighter carbonation with a dry finish. Pretty nice amber ale -- good bitter balance to this.

b3shine (8931) - Indiana, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a slightly cloudy Algerian orange with off-white head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells mildly hoppy with a touch of grain and caramel. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Not bad.

drfabulous (8088) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - JUL 26, 2010
22 ounce bottle shared, that probably came from Bruisin Ales. Dark amber with caramel and sugar. Very tasty and a top notch amber.

Suttree (6415) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 20, 2009
darker than what I consider amber - more of a mahogany, I think. Nice aroma of caramel and dark bread. Surprisingly full bodied. Very bready - pumpernickel, maybe. Crisp finish.

decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - OCT 13, 2009
Amber pour with creamy white head and lace. Light caramel malt aroma with a bread chaser. Light caramel malt, toast, and a very light bitter. Just thin but very drinkable.

Cybercat (5879) - Georgia, USA - MAY 25, 2013
Comes out of the tap a transparent mahogany with a thick, fine-bubbled light tan head. Strong, malty aroma has fruity and subtle hoppy undertones. Satisfying malty flavor has hints of caramel and cloves. Texture is fairly fizzy, if thin. If not outstanding, still worth ordering a crater.
