Poured this one into a Jailhouse pint glass I got from touring the brewery a few months back.
The body has a gorgeous, almost shimmering copper color to it and the creamy tan pillow of a head starts out 2 fingers tall then sinks to a healthy skim.
The aroma is rich in caramel malt--like breaking open a Snickers bar under your nose. Very nice.
I taste a lot of slightly toasted caramel malt oomph like I expected, along with some very subtle fruit notes. They keep this thing balanced out perfectly with their choice of Liberty and Willamette hops.
The mouthfeel is smooth and easy with a low carbonation that make's this a real mellow brew.
Overall this is a great brew, and if any beeradvocates what to tour a really cool brewery in the Atlanta area, they should check this place out.

Appearance: Quite clear, apropos amber-hued body with a very, very thin head -- due mainly to a to-the-top pour from the Taco Mac bartender.
Smell: A scent of barley grains given a thin layer of toastiness, followed by a sniff of crystal malts, florals, and reserved citrus.
Taste: Mildly toasty, bready malts tipping towards a moderate crystal sweetness. Hoppy qualities of florals, herbs, and citrus. Well-rounded, yes, though all very subtle. Medium-low bitterness. Dry, faintly toasty finish with a lingering near-muted floral tone.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Jailhouse delivers a likable, easy-drinking amber. A beer I’ll cheerfully opt for a second or third helping of.

Pours a lovely coppery red-amber with a decent eggshell head. Aroma is not too strong, but invites with malty and fruity notes plus a hint of caramel. Pleasing flavor has a malty core plus notes of apple, pear and caramel and just a hint of hops. Smooth texture has a good amount of fizz. Hardly a misdemeanor if you give this one a fair shake!

Appearance is dark amber. The flavor is very nutty & oaty with a slight maple finish (imagine a tasty oatmeal). The body is very light and refreshing; it drinks like cold ice tea. It has a very mild strength with low acidity. This would make a good year round beer. Reasonably priced as well. Very good beer (staple worthy, I think).

Dark reddish beer with a medium heavy body. Pleasant to drink and lots of flavor. Served with grilled steak and chicken and accompanied them very nicely Not accustomed to reviewing beers so don't know the lingo! Just know I liked it and would buy more.

16oz pour. On tap at Taco Mac (Alpharetta, GA). 5.25. Served in a pint glass.
Pours a deep orange amber with about a half finger beige head. Most lacing is from the initial head but other spots appear as it goes down.
Smells sharp and earthy. Maybe those are some grassy hops I smell with some hay and mild spices mixed in. Not much to the nose.
Taste is a nicely balanced. A good mix of malty sweetness and mild grassy hop bitterness. A little bit of sweet bread, some spice and a dash of roasted malt.
Feel is light bodied with fairly sharp carbonation. Dry earthy and mildly bitter aftertaste. No noticeable alcohol whatsoever.
This is an easy drinking amber. Well balanced and pretty tasty. Not overly complex, but it sure is refreshing.

22 ounce bottle -> Samuel Adams Perfect Pint glass
A- very amber/red on the pour, clear with a one finger head, world class retention, and world class lacing.
S - a fairly strong bready smell, not bad but sort of one dimensional.
T - fairly mild tasting with a bready rye bitter finish, some spicy notes.
M - Adequate carbonation with a bit of an aftertaste.
O - nothing spectacular, but very drinkable.
