Draft at source. Earthy toasty malt aroma. Light bready flavors. Not too bad for a style that most places just brew to have. The earthiness is really pleasant and dry without all that crappy caramel sweetness to it. Solid. jrob21 (3874) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - DEC 31, 2015
sample as part of flight at the source. Nutty caramel. A little grassy bitter on the finish. Caramel flavors and candy sugar sweet. Nice to style amber. Itzjerm (3172) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - NOV 10, 2014
A nice sweet malty pale ale. Not much aroma other than pale ale and amber ale. Malty aroma fading pale ale sweet enjoyable. good decent feeling on tongue ffrom pale ale. Not amazing but average and good. woodychevy (874) - - NOV 7, 2014
From the can. Pretty drinkable, but just not that exciting. Considering it was brewed as a session ale for an outdoor summer arts festival it’s probably about right, but hard to get excited about. Pours about right for an amber- slightly cloudy, almost copper. Decent, thick white head and lacing. Taste is on the malty side- toffee, caramel, earthy. Drinks smooth with some balance/ citrus/ acid from hops but definitely on malty side. Finishes smooth. Average and not that interesting, but totally drinkable.

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.

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. jhliesen (836) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle--pours a bright, boxcar red with a medium and good lacing. Aroma was light on the nose and mostly medium, roasted malts. Taste was metallic until the brew warmed and then some toffee was noted. A slight touch of bitterness on the finish. I was disappointed, I remember it better before.

Tap @ Pisgah. Amber color. Aroma of amaretto, toasted almonds, caramel malts. Flavor of toasted grains. SESSION BEER!!! I love it. (3905) phaleslu (10895) - 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.
