A rich dark red. Lightly sweet with a hint of caramel. Malt is not over powering. I’d give it ’Best in Class’ without hesistation. Truebrew69 (19) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Smells of toasty nut flavors. Appears rich golden amber color. Tastes like a full bodied maltier amber ale with chocolate and some toasted nut tones. Pleasing on the palate, a bit hoppy on the finish which I tend to like. Overall a great amber ale in my opinion. Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 20, 2000
A mild beer, malts and hops well balanced for a very drinkable beer. ....... ChainGangGuy (4918) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAY 26, 2009
12 ounce bottle - $1.69 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a clear, dark amber body with a large, frothy, off-white head. Fair amount of lacing on the way down.
Smell: Malty, lightly sweet-smelling blend of caramel and pale malts with, as the taste, some toasty hints. Light fruit notes. Spicy, earthy, maybe even a tad herbal hop scent.
Taste: Pale and caramel malts, a tad toasty, and with a medium amount of slight candyish sweetness. Touch of fruitiness. Spicy, lightly earthy hop character, seemingly English, and with only a medium-low amount of bitterness. Finishes dry, malty, and with merest bit of lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Drinkability: A pleasant, reasonably well-balanced amber ale. I liked it well enough. Though, if you’re interests reside with the bitter, tongue-pinching West Coast ambers, you might want to look elsewhere. apost8n8 (123) - USA - OCT 25, 2004
Clear Amber head with a white head. Interesting fruity nose with a smooth finish. Not my favorite but I was happy to have it offered on the menu.

I tend to favor local beers whenever I get the chance; TC definitely qualifies as a local brewery for me. Of the three I sampled (Amber, Doppelbock, and Pilsner) at dinner, the amber was my least favorite; HOWEVER, it was stellar with my dinner entree: she-crab soup and Vietnamese duck spring rolls! The very quality that drove the beer down in my book -- too sweet on the tongue -- married it perfectly to the food. yespr (47002) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2010
