Pours clear amber with a finger of tan head. Aroma has some faint caramel malt character to it but the rest just seems to be some musty yeastiness. Flavor is not much of an improvement. I try to pick out at least one part of the palate that is enjoyable, but can’t really find any. This is a sub-par amber.

Amber ale is one of my favorite beer styles. This beer has a heavy body and I don't like it as much as their Red Ale offering (which has a lighter body).

Have enjoyed this fresh on tap in downtown Greenville and also from the bottle at home in Columbia, and from both sources this is an exceptionally full-bodied and flavorful classic amber ale. Pours a transparent but dark mahogany wood color with a healthy amount of foam and an aroma of unsweet caramel. Rich toffee and caramel in the flavor but with less sugary sweetness, not much hoppy contrast. Takes a more malt-centric approach to this style and tends toward the burnt end of the caramelization spectrum. Personally, I prefer the less overt sweetness of this flavor profile much more than Thomas Creek's River Falls Red Ale, which I used to get this beer confused with.

Pours a clear dark amber with light head. Has a strong caramel malt aroma. A mix of flavors including caramel, roasted malts, grains, and some fruits. A lingering caramel malt aftertaste.

Light malty smell, little sweet off the bat...turns a touch bitter, a bit toasty over time...decent but a little too watery

Pours reddish-brown like coke with a thin off-white head. Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. A little sweet. Dusty, astringent finish. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Old rating. Decidedly average and boring amber with all that entails…color, malty body, some sweetness, medium body.

Bottle shared by Dr Silverworm. Poured clear brown hue with medium frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Medium aroma of toasted malt. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium flavor of sweet malt with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Smooth drinkable brew.

12oz bottle, purchased on 2/23/15 from Habersham in Savannah. Shared with tmoney99. Bottle is labeled 6.8%. Mostly clear amber-brown color, with some dark particles in the body. Little ring of bubbly off-white head, few bits of lace. Toasty malt, and some caramel. Touch of dark fruit. Mildly spicy and earthy. Moderate bitter, light to moderate sweet. Medium to bigger body. Lighter, slightly rough carbonation. Mild slick finish. Surprisingly, one of the better Thomas Creek beers I picked up (I was beginning to get more and more nervous every time I popped a bottle open). Good bigger bitterness on this, good bigger flavor. A solid, darker, earthier hoppier amber ale.

Tap takeover at Matthews Beer Temple. Very average amber ale. Well balanced but not memorable at all. Pass.

Pours a clear amber with a bit of lacing. Spices, brown sugar on the nose. Roasted malts, molasses, hints of sugar. A really unexceptional amber ale. The worst Thomas Creek beer I’ve tried so far.
