The beer pours a hazy, dark amber color with a large, creamy off-white head. The aroma is a little bit hoppier than I imagined, with some grass and orange citrus notes, as well as some toffee malt. The flavor is similar, with some bitter pine and orange citrus hops, as well as some biscuit and caramel malt. The bitterness is fairly high for an amber ale. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

12oz can poured into a Duvel tulip.

Pours a very nice but surprisingly dark ruby/amber color with a small lightly yellow head along with generous fine lacing. Nose is slightly sweet, malty and rich.

Taste is very well balanced with a light crisp bitterness upfront followed by a nice sweetness of malty honey flavors on the finish. The mouthfeel is a bit too light and watery for me but I think it makes it a good transition beer for people trying to get into darker beers.

Tin Roof "Perfect Tin Amber"
on tap at The Industry Bar, NOLA. 4/13/12

Appearance: Mostly clear amber. Appears more brown in the full pint. A short head of frothy light tan holds well. Average lacing. Big bubbled carbonation (probably a dirty glass with lots of nucleation points).

Aroma: Hoppy and malty with a bit of a nuttiness. Minor yeasty fruitiness. Some mild background chocolate too. Grassy.

Flavor: Malty. Hoppy. Solid beer. The distinctly bready, caramelish and toasted maltiness appears upfront, accented by some chocolate and nuttiness. Some fruitiness follows, and grassy highlights rise across the middle. A drying bitterness appears and lingers into the finish as the hops fade and the nuttiness returns.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, moderate carbonation. Smooth.

Overall: Fairly impressive as it's not just another bland "run-of-the mill" amber ale... its maltiness almost hints at being a kind of a northern English brown ale. Nice.

4.23/5  rDev +20.5%

Pours a deep copper with a delightful aroma of caramel, toast, and citrus hops.

Sweet toffee is the foremost flavor with the grapefruity hops adding some bitterness at the back end. Rather big flavor and very full, round mouthfeel for an amber ale. Not terribly complex, but the toffee and roasted malt pair together nicely, with the hops adding a pleasant contrast at the end.

Good flavor, and clocking it at 4.5% ABV, a great all day beer here. Geaux get one!

A big thanks to Evan (optimator13) for this great extra. Cheers!

Appearance – Pours a dark amber color into a tulip. About a finger of slight off white head is achieved with a moderate pour from the can.

Smell – Some nice slight hops, caramel, a nuttiness, and slight charred/roasted malts.

Taste – Quite similar to the aroma. Slight floral hops hit the tongue first but fade to a nice mellow caramel and toasted malts (almost earthy). A hint on the sweeter side.

Mouthfeel – Medium bodied, medium to a bit lower carbonation, finishes with just a slight dryness.

Overall – A darn quaffable beer. Easy to drink, not too many in your face flavors; nice and mellow. I enjoyed this beer.

Thanks to woodychandler for coming through with yet another canned beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a pretty deep bronze color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, a touch of chocolate. Taste is of piney hops, a tad bit of chocolate, bitter at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

3.25/5  rDev -7.4%

Poured a 12 oz can into a clean goblet and got the following

A. Cloudy brown with 2 fingers on fizzly tan head. Chestnut body color.

S. Smells like crystal malt and a little bit of nutty breadiness.

T. Slightly earthy and choppy with some sweet background crysyalliness.

M. Very good balance of sweetness and gravity and good carbonation.

Overall not bad but their pale ale is much better. Would buy again if in baton rouge again

Thanks to optimator13 for hooking me up with a nice canned craft brew.

Pours a somewhat dark amber with a wispy white head.

Smells of bread and caramel. No hop presence is detectable in the aroma.

Starts off with a slight caramel tinge. A strong pungeant earthy flavor takes over the finish. Not an overly complex beer. Still few detectable hops.

Mouthfeel is a tad light and carbonation levels are good.

Decent amber. A little one dimensional and the harsher finish affects drinkability somewhat. Still would be a good go to for canned beer if distributed here.

4.43/5  rDev +26.2%

Tin Roof Perfect Tin Amber has a thin, off-white head, with little lacing left behind, and a clear, dark brown (amber, under light) appearance with a good amount of bubbles streaming up. The aroma is caramel malt and bread, with a dash of hops. Taste is hop forward and spicy, but not in any way harsh. The caramel malts are present for sure, and the body is sweet and full. This beer finishes fairly crisp and most certainly refreshing. Even though it is not particularly complex, it is quite excellent in its simplicity. A bit of sourness showed up (on draft). They did a wonderful job with this one, and I highly recommend it.

Consumed 4/13/12

Appearance: Dark caramel/light brown/dark amber - clear, pours with a minimal head, retains a little ring, some spotty lacing

Smell: Caramel malts and a ton of grass - like, toasted grass clippings - some nuttiness, and some weirdness that I can only describe as musty grains - some caramel sweetness

Taste: Better than the aroma, with some nice malts - caramel malts, pale malts, slightly toasty - some light fruits, and some darker notes, a touch of toffee and caramel - mild bitterness, hops are overly grassy

Mouthfeel: Medium body, adequate carbonation, a little bit sticky

Overall: Good, but not particularly exceptional

This has some decent malts, but overall it's a pretty average amber. Pretty tasty, but nothing to write home about. I appreciate the presence of the hops, but I am not a fan of the grassiness.

3.58/5  rDev +2%

12 oz can pours a crystal clear red color with a thick cap of tan head. Nice retention and lacing...a very pretty looking beer.

Nose is caramel, toffee, nuts and papaya. Interesting and decently bold. Nothing spectacular, but smells solid.

Taste has a nice nutty aspect with moderate sweetness while toast and toffee make up the majority of the malt flavor. A grassy, bitter bite on the finish cleans things up nicely. The mouthfeel might be the best part about this one, it really has a creamy, dense feel to it going down the hatch. It does nothing fantastically, but everything solid...its a well-built beer that is an easy choice for something tasty and can-portable while hanging out in Louisiana (CenLa in my case as I found this tasty treat in Alexandria).

3.48/5  rDev -0.9%

12 ounce can, no freshness date. Poured into a snifter. Light tan head, moderate retention on a clear, dark copper body. Aroma includes caramel malt, butterscotch slight brown sugar and molasses and some nuttiness and a slight roast. Taste follows suit. Quite sessionable and not bad at all.
