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. Its 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.

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 doesnt 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 (5267) - 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.

Onslow (1437) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - OCT 16, 2013
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.

BrownALEx (444) - Portland, Michigan, USA - AUG 2, 2013
Pours a dark red. Small head that disappears quickly. Nice taste, malty and sweet. Good amber, cant 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.

Sammy (11487) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle from Champanes Cellars. Pours somewhat amber colour, with above average carbonation. Aroma first of the hops and then of toasted malt. Taste is some caramel and mostly the toasted malt. Hops are there to give it a botter finish and make it interesting and drinkable.
