On tap @ the Jefferson St. Brewing Company (Lynchburg, VA) on 2/6/10.
Pours a clear coppery amber, with a smooth covering of bright-white head. This stays fairly frothy around the edges, leaving a nice looking creamy cascade of lacing back. The aroma is floral and a touch spicy smelling, with a lightly toasted tanginess to it from a combo of roasted caramel malts and fruity citrus.
The taste is more sweet and tangy up front with toffee and citrus, before getting a bit more roasty feeling towards the back. A moderately spicy hop presence offers up some balance, then lingering past the finish with an earthy feel. The mouthfeel is medium bodied (maybe a bit lighter) with some sharpness up front to it but this gets much more smooth and creamy across the palate as you swallow.
This was a decent stab at an Amber. This seemed rather pedestrian at first but I have to admit that the roastiness of it won me over a bit the more I worked on it.

Poured from a 2L growler into a nonic pint glass. The growler was filled five minutes earlier at Fry's Spring Station. From notes. Reviewed July 2011.
A: About one finger of head which fades quickly. Very reddish brown. High clarity.
S: Beery and lightly fruity. Neutral grain.
T: Malt is startlingly chocolatey. Some light initial fruit before the drying maintaste. The aftertaste is toasted, bready, and dry. Very malty.
M: Full, round, and dry. Little carbonation.
O: Mediocre beer. Very forgettable. Neither recommended or unrecommended. Probably won't have again.

64oz growler, filled 8/4/13, drank 8/11/13
A: Pours a nice "amber" color. Vibrantly clear. Thin layer of bright white head. Sticky lacing bits. Still has come carbonation after a week in clear growler.
S: Smells lightly hopped and nutty. Definitely pulling those caramel malts.
T: You get a touch of bitterness up front. Very mild. Nutty malt character comes in. Sweet caramel touches. Finish is fairly dry.
M: Light medium bodied.

Amber, on tap at Jefferson St. Brewing Company, as part of a tasting flight. This review is a few months old, but I'm just now catching up on my backlog from this particular period.
Appearance: A filtered pale amber, appropriately enough, more of an orange caramel than red, really, capped by half a finger of lightly tanned head with surprisingly good retention that in turn leaves surprisingly good lacing and a nice, thick dusting. A solid beginning.
Aroma: Bready and husky notes dominate, insofar as anything dominates in this aromatically distant brew. Slightly roasted, but largely empty and minerally.
Taste: Very hollow again, and almost sort of musty. Faint, distant husks of caramel malt, faint toast, and dry bread crusts accompany a distant citrus hop twinge - probably pelleted Cascades - and a definite chemically aftertone. Very dry.
Mouthfeel: A little overcarbonated, but on the whole a fluffy, bold mouthfeel, bright, and inoffensive. Moderately bodied and dry enough for this to not be problematic.
Drinkability: A step up over the Honey Wheat, that's for certain. Not a standout amber, but a drinkable brew that I could see myself going back for if I was here to eat.
