12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy reddish/orange/copper color with a 1 finger dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of big caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of dark/bready malt and light earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of big caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light herbal/grassy/spicy hop and roast bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of caramel, brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/roast, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Slight dryness from hop/roast bitterness, lightly increasing through the glass. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready/grainy, and slightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5.3%. Overall this is a nice standard amber ale. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/bready malt and light earthy hop flavors; very smooth and easy to drink. Well round malt complexity with just enough earthy hops to balance. A nicely enjoyable offering. tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Bottle: Body darker than amber. Kind of copper-ish with a strong red hue throughout. Off-white head quickly settles to a small ring. Aroma includes heavy CaraMunich malts, gummy toffee, toast, sulfur, & some herbal grassy notes. Flavor is not sweet like the nose indicates. It’s very thin, vapid, astringent, & just strange. Metallic, light dry caramel powder, staleness comes in the finish. Hint of earthy hop in the finish, but this whole thing is just a mess. Pass. Frank (4194) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2014
This is the malt-forward style of amber. It is supper cloudy in the glass, red brown, with a small head of fine bubbles. Nose is all toffee-like malt, some earthy hops and a touch of spice I assume comes from the yeast. It is a bit sweet but light enough that it doesn’t cloy. There is just a touch of hops to balance and this finishes with a light herbal bitterness and some lingering sweetness. This is definitely one of the better brews from this brewery. If it had the same amount of malt flavor and was a little less sweet and more bitter, it would be great. rumproasts (5359) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2014
bottle. Amber with small head. Caramel malt and the signature Schmohz blend of off flavors. Rather awful. BlowOffTube (501) - Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Same shit different name. Same malt extract flavor with a hint of attempted hops. Same amber looking color but lucky enough this is supposed to be an amber beer.

Pour from a 12oz bottle. Slightly cloudy mid tone brown ale with off white head. Aroma of sweet malt, roasted malt, a little nuttiness. Taste follows the aroma - sweet malts balanced with roasted, nutty, a slight dryness in the finish but little hops character. Many characteristics of a brown ale. Nice on a cool evening.

Pours a dark red. Small head that disappears quickly. Nice taste, malty and sweet. Good amber, can’t wait to try it on tap. A Royal Flush Girl would never talk to me.

Beautiful, enticing, red head who fascinates and flirts, then delivers bountiful glory. Wonderful. strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - FEB 22, 2013
Bottle. Very sour, medium body, a little cloudy, light head. The sour taste surprised me as I was expecting a more std amber.
