Vigorously poured from growler into beer glass.

A: Nice amber color with a very nice two finger head.

S: Malt, caramel, a little bit of hops

T: Same as the smell, caramel and malt but has more hop presence than the smell. Very good though.

M: Excellent mouthfeel! Very smooth but still has good carbonation. Chewy aftertaste that lingers and is amazing.

O: Definitely try this beer if you make it to Flat 12!

Had this on tap at a Broad Ripple bar. Served a bit darker amber color with a one and a half finger off white head. Had a slightly sweet smell with a slight hint of hop. I found this to be a great rendition of an American Amber. Great hop flavor in the backend. Lots of maltiness throughout, just what I want in an amber. Very drinkable.

Pours dark, cloudy amber red in color. Thick frothy head. Looks pretty sturdy for an amber ale. Smells sweet and malty, dark cherry, dried fruits, toasted wheat bread. The taste mirrors the scent except that it finishes with a great hop bite. Really nice blend of malt, grain and hops. Really well balanced and excellent flavor. Mouthfeel is between light and medium bodied, moderate carbonation, and a thin, soft finish. Overall a really great tasting amber ale, very drinkable and fulfills the need for hoppy bitterness too.

Something with the pours of these Flat 12 bottles,just gushers.Pours a hazed medium amber with the large gushing slight off white head,a smack of citric hops is very nice with some brown sugar and caramel notes underneath.Love the flavors going on here a big dose citric and herbal hops over top of caramel and toffee maltiness,I even dectect a little nuttiness.Well the pours and feel of their bottled beers leave a little to be desired the flavors of this amber is top notch,the hop and malt profile is top notch.

Pours an amber red color with a really attractive head. Nose is cookie, caramel, and grain malts with a little bit of hops. Taste starts off with a lot of malts - a combination of caramel and cookie with a touch of toasted malts. Ends with some bitter pine and citrus hops. Not assertively hoppy, but the hops aren't subtle either. Pretty well balanced. Overall, solid amber ale, I was pleasantly surprised by it.

12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a mostly clear reddish/amber color with about an inch frothy tan head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. The brew smells like toasted and bready malt, caramel, nuts, and some herbal/spicy hops. Taste is mostly like the aroma, but with the addition of some citrusy hops and dark bread flavors. There's also a good amount of hoppy bitterness in this brew. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's smooth and has low/moderate carbonation. Also easy to drink. It's one of the better amber ales I've had recently. I wouldn't mind trying this one again in the future. $2.49 a single.

Attractive cloudy amber (not a surprise), with a thick head of off-white bubbles. Substantial 2-3 finger lacing, too. Good.

Nose is rich caramel malts. Sturdy and alluring.

Taste is brisk, with tones of roasty caramel. toasted grains, and a bit of a sharp citrus hops kick near the finish. Quite enjoyable, and a surprisingly tasty amber ale.

(Served in a globe glass)
A- This beer pours full glass of light tan head that last a good bit and settles into a clear amber brown body with a strong carbonation.

S- The lightly toasted dry biscuit malt flavor has just a hint of spice to it in the finish.

T- The biscuit malt has a nice lightly toasted quality to it but it stays dry with a cinnamon quality to the dry green hops in the finish. The hops turn a bit more like green wood as the beer opens up.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle fizz texture and no alcohol heat noticed.

O- This is a nice full malt flavor that is a bit 1-dimentional but the hops support it nicely. The carbonation is way too big but there was no sign of infection.

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.
