Pour from a 12oz bottle. Clear amber brew, huge tan red that settles down with good head persistence. Aroma of bread, nuts, caramel, fruit. Taste is bready, nutty, with a fruity / sour finish. Enjoyable. fiveacestx (970) - Texas, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Bottle - Tea brown in color with an overly large chunky head. Has a bready malt aroma and taste. Has a bit of caramel sweetness but not much else. Darkmagus82 (2302) - - SEP 3, 2014

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a copper amber color with a one finger off white head. The head fades relatively quickly to leave a nice lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is of a roasted malt flavor with some aromas of caramel and a lightly roasted nut smell. Mixed with these smells are some lighter notes of an earthy and herbal hop smell.
Taste – The taste begins with a bready and lightly roasted malt flavor. Some caramel flavor is present upfront which transitions more toward a toffee flavor more toward the middle as some lighter buttery flavors come to the tongue. With this transition comes some nut flavors of an almond nature. A very light earthy hop flavor joins that tastes at the end to leave a smooth and lightly roasted sweet and caramel flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the rather average to slightly thinner side in terms of its creaminess with a carbonation level that a bit on the higher side. The thinner body and higher carbonation are good for the abv and for making for a rather easy drinking brew while still being heavy enough for the roasted and lightly earthy hoped flavors of the brew.
Overall- A decent drinking brew with a fairly nice flavor profile and a easy drinking feel. Nothing exceptional, but a pretty nice drinker overall. Bork (455) - Rosewood, Georgia, USA - AUG 3, 2014
UPDATED: SEP 20, 2014 Not a very well rounded amber with fruity notes, lingering acidity, and bready malts pointing in different directions. davey101 (751) - Connecticut, USA - JUN 24, 2014
12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Not the freshest. Pours a, well...amber body. Nose is grassy with some caramel and cereal grains. Taste is caramel and grains. Decent and drinkable, albeit a little bitter. Better cold then warm. Pretty spot on representation of the style.

Bottle @ home, picked up in Charlotte. Thanks to jcnielsen for shipping to me. Pours a dark rust orange appearance with a brown head that dissipates kind of quickly. Caramel and apple sauce in the nose. Somewhat spicy. Twangy, tart pear/apple fruity flavor. Some toast and caramel. Not all that great. Heavy carbonation. eRock_2013 (469) - South Carolina, USA - APR 20, 2014
Officially classified as an amber ale, although reminded me more of an amber lager... either way a decent but unexceptional offering from Duck Rabbit, not as memorable as their milk stout I have sampled previously. Clear amber appearance with long lasting white head, grainy caramel aroma. Taste is a bit weak, although features a nice slightly roasted and sweet interplay of malty notes, almost like a more sophisticated Yuengling lager. A bit thin on the palate as well but still refreshing. On draft this is a reliable and drinkable stand-alone beer. Tstamba (775) - Maryland, USA - APR 20, 2014
Clear amber with white head. Malt and toffee notes on the nose and palate ... Easy to drink thus one, not a bad effort... tnkw01 (1753) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle. Nice copper color with a medium head. Aroma was lightly roasted grains with just a tad of candy corn. Taste was a tad weak but with caramel, roasted grains and toast. MarkSachon (1023) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2014
From the 12oz bottle purchased from a sampler case. Low gravity and density leave a few things to be desired. A slightly acidic taste. Ho hum, this is left as a mildly disappointing review. I expected more from a brewer who has some top-notch beers in their cellar.
