Pours deep ruby tinged copper with a lasting head.
Nose shows a rich mix of hops and malt. Big piney, resinous, earthy and minty notes from the hops, while the malt adds prominent caramel, nutty and toasty characters. Very nice!
Very similar hop profile as flavours, but in the way of malt only the nutty characters continue to stand out. Really needs more caramel to flesh it out.
Body feels a little watery.

Bottle from Beer Deluxe. From notes.

A - Poured bright with a deep brown colour. Strong carbonation coming up to a three finger, overly aggressive growing head of fluffy light brown. Good big chunk of lace left and a good finger of retention.

S - Dark fruit, some sort of spirit, earthy hops, caramel.

T - Malty, dark fruit, caramel. Not much hop at all. Candy malt sweetness. A bit buttery.

M - Medium body and good carbonation that borders on strong with a sweet finish.

O/D - Seemed quite malty for an American interpretation. Hop profile needed a pickup. A bit buttery as well. Overall, really not that bad, just a few flaws making it a bit boring.

It pours a ruby red hue with decent carbonation that leaves behind a two finger creamy head and a rim of lacing,the smell is xmas pudding,raisins,caramel and toffee,it has a light-medium bodied mouthfeel and has tastes of candied figs,raisins,caramel,toffee and finishes with a light tinge of xmas pudding and overall not bad and a very sessionable Amber cheers.

From notes - on-tap at Baxter Inn, served well-chilled and light supplied by not much more than candles.

Interesting as I did not know what the beer or style was when delivered to me.

Poured deep copper, one finger coarse head.

Aromas of sugars, malts, caramel, and some hop notes. By now I was thinking American Brown Ale

Taste continued aromas with more sweet notes, and less hops to balance.

Mouthfeel light and well carbonated

Not sure about style :-)

A - Pours a fairly clear dark copper colour with a 2cm off white head that falls fairly slowly leaving a thin whisp and some light lacing.
S - Smell is dominated by toffee & caramel maltiness. Hops are barely discernable under all the malt character.
T - The faintest of faint floral and citrus hop notes are in the taste but they are quickly overshadowed by the dominance of the toffee maltiness.
M - Medium to full bodied, close to feeling under attenuated. Mild bitterness.
O - Even for an amber ale this is too dominated by toffee malt character. Glad to see Two Brothers do an American style beer but this doesn't hit the mark.

Clear mahogany colour with a very small, light tan head.

Deep toffee notes with hints of chocolate. Moderate citrussy hop aroma which is also a touch grassy. Interesting but not quite aqn American style amber.

Lots of malt with plenty of sweetness. Dark toffee. Mild fruity character. Mild bitterness. A little dank and slightly odd.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. It's okay but the carbonation seems a little unintegrated.

I'm not convinced that this works as an American Amber. In fact, the brewery calls this well hopped. I think it's a touch too malty and fruity.
