Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a copper color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts, a touch of caramel. Taste is malty, some hops are present, a bit of caramel, easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a refreshing and enjoyable beer.

330ml bottle. Pours a dark rusty hued amber with a large beige head, good lacing. Aroma and taste is caramel malt, grains, light yeast, mild fruity notes. Palate is a medium body with moderate carbonation. Finish is caramel malt, grains, some yeast and , moderate hops bitterness with a mild nutty flavor. Aroma and flavor seems to improve as it warms up, but need a bit more backbone. Overall an ok brew to try, not too bad.

Poured into a Dogfish Head pint glass. Pours a light to medium coppery amber with a one finger off-white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of biscuit and caramel malt, grassy and mildly piney hops, a hint of nuts. Medium bodied with good carbonation. This series of beers has been better than mass produced beers, but not quite up to craft standards, usually adequate renitions of the style, but not too exciting. This one, however, was quite nicely done, a classic amber (approaching a red) ale profile with a very nice malt base supporting good hop flavors. Maybe I got a great batch, and I'm bucking the trend here thinking this was a very nicely done amber/red ale and one I'd buy again in a heartbeat. I'm pleasantly surprised.

I had picked up four of the six beers in this series during a Veterans Day beer run to State Line Liquors in Elkton, MD and during my trip to Norfolk, VA last weekend, I stopped in at Total Wine & More and scored to other two. I LOVE the label art, I gotta say!

I used an aggro pour to get a pseudo-cascade going, which formed two fingers of fluffy, rocky, tawny head with nice retention. Color was Light Copper to Copper (SRM = > 13, < 17) with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a pleasant caramel sweetness. Mouthfeel was thin-to-medium. The taste was slightly bitter, unexpected, given the nose, but not unpleasant. Finish was semi-dry, more bitter than sweet, but not a bad iteration of the style. I remember in the early days of microbrewing, the Amber Ale was a staple and this was highly reminiscent of that period.

I poured this beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer looked promising as it was a nice light amber color. The beer poured a nice tan head. HOWEVER, the beer absolutely stunk and my wife and I agreed that it smelled like stinkin feet. The beer also had an awful sour taste to it. The beer was just plain yuk. I will never ever buy again for sure.
