This beer was bottled for the first time a couple weeks ago. Flat 12's Amber pours a medium bodied dark ruby red in color with little carbonation and no true head. It smells like an amber. There is a touch of sweet malt and a slight hop bitterness in the nose. It plays the part. The flavors are very approachable and on par for the style. There is slightly sweet amber malt with a touch of hoppy bitterness. As with all ambers it isn't overly complex but for an amber, this one is pretty good and very sessionable and easy to drink. If you like the style this beer will be right up your alley. It's an upgrade over Bells, Flying Dog, and Fat Tire.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Very Copper, Too small of a white head, dissipates way too quickly, no lacing.

A hint of hops but I can't figure out what it smells like. Perhaps a touch piney.

Taste: Mellow piney. A real letdown.

mouthfeel: watery, boring

Overall: A generally piney concoction, better than average, but still disappointing.

12 oz

Pours a deep hazy brown. Head is thick and yellow-tan, dissipates very slowly.

Smells of biscuit malts, walnuts, and dry bitter hops.

Tastes of biscuit malt with a hint of grape sweetness over pecan and walnut with a flavorless bitter hop finish.

Medium body with soft tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

A nice solid ale with some good flavor and body, drinks pretty easy and is worth trying.

12 oz. bottle poured into a craft pint.

A- Brownish red, with some good amber highlights. Healthy off-white head. Lots of yeast suspended throughout the body. Lacing is nice.

S- Piney/floral nose, is a bit harsh. Almost, cleaner/solvent like. Just a faint toast.

T- Mild toast with earthy and floral hop tones. The scale tips more to hops, but still decently balanced. Some caramel comes out as well.

M- Pretty clean throughout. Wet finish, but a dull bitterness hangs on to the tip of my tongue.

O- Okay. A few off-characteristics. Aroma and the higher bitterness, mainly, for a standard amber.

A- Pours a very rust-like amber in color with a small, 1 finger head. Retention is good and lacing is also good. Body of the beer is very hazy, with visible debris in suspension.

S- Very faint overall, with a hint of slight hoppiness coming through. Amber malts are also a evident and just a touch on the sweet side. Actually just a hint of chocolate sweetness comes through too.

T- Starts with mild hops bitterness and transitions into more malty flavors rather quickly. Hops are only a little bitter, with pine flavors being the primary flavor. Malts are grainy and bready in flavor with very little sweetness when compared to the scent. Malt flavors linger for a little bit after the drink.

M- Easy drinking, highly carbonated, and a little thinner than expected on the tongue.

Overall, just your average, small brewery, flagship amber ale. Worth trying, not worth seeking out.

12 FL OZ. bottle
Served in a tumbler

A - This beer pours a deep amber color. A normal pour produced a ton of tan head.

S - The aroma is sweet caramel malt, and I get a berry scent. There is a little floral hop aroma, and a tea-like smell.

T - It has a floral tea taste to it. At first I got some bitterness.

M - Moderate

O - This was a random pick up in Indiana. I had little expectation. It had a little more going for it than I anticipated, but I wouldn't buy it again mostly because of the millions and millions of beers that I have yet to try.
