bottle, pours light amber with a medium light tan head. Aroma is toasted nuts, toffee. Flavor is toasted malt, very thin, clean finish, nothing going on. doboy (424) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUL 29, 2010
Poured a dark copper color with not much head, any disipated before the beer was gone. Goood Carbonation. Rich malty aroma. Taste was very malty, with a bit of a sharp afterbite. I wasn’t really excited by this. joergen (27970) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 6, 2010
Bottle at Nya Tröls, Malmö.
Clear orange coloured with a small off-white head.
Malty aroma of caramel and roasted bread.
Fruity flavour of caramel, bread and hops.
Hoppy finish. potbeerjob (1343) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 1, 2010
Bottled. Hazed amber thin lasting head. Aroma is caramel. Flavor is light caramel and bland sweetness. A funny lasting aftertaste is the only part that stood out--caramel but also long and thicker lasting on tongue. Simple and good

So far I have not been impressed by Thomas Creek. The Amber however is better imho than what it is rated. Decent smooth drinker but still far from impressed. KUEric (975) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JAN 18, 2010
I like Ambers. there is nothing great or good about them, but there is rarely ever a bad amber. I’ve read on here many times the word non-offensive and usually its meant as a negative. I don’t always see it that way. If it’s not bad, that’s better than bad. And consider how easy to drink ambers are I think that would classify as enjoyable. Not world-beating for sure, but enjoyable is what I look for in a "session" beer.
That said, Thomas Creek specifically. A nice little hop profile with emphasis on little with crystal-y malt flavors. The appearence, like the flavor was nondescript and nice.
All in all the word to use for this beer, just like one of those girls you had a good time with on the date who was a 6 in looks and 6 in personality but you wouldnt want to date exclusively or take home to mom and keep forever or anything.

Pours clear ruby amber with a thin beige head. Aroma is plain with alcohol and caramel. Taste is caramel, toasted biscuit, thin body and finishes a little sticky. Dogbrick (12912) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Sample at the Day Before Labor Day party. The beer is a clear amber-copper color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Sticky rings of lacing. Malty aroma with notes of caramel and mild hops. Light body with caramel malt and weak hops flavors. The finish is malty with a short sweet aftertaste. Really nothing positive or negative to say about this beer, it simply exists.
