A: The beer is clear dark reddish brown in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a half finger high dense beige head that died down, leaving a thin head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of caramel malts are present in the nose along with some notes of citrus and evergreen.
T: The taste has an interesting mix of caramel flavors from the malts and citrusy and woody flavors from the hops. A slight amount of sweetness is contrasted by a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied, a little crisp and slightly smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Although none of the aromas or flavors seem to stand out in particular, the malts and hops are well balanced and work together. This beer is quite drinkable because the alcohol is well hidden from the taste.

Mostly what you'd expect with the pour. It's a combination of dark reddish brown, chestnut, thoroughbred horse color. It's dark, but still relatively clear. It's opaque due to the color, but still appears filtered. However, the head is a beautiful bright white. Sticks around an average amount of time, but it's as nice a looking head of bubbles as I've seen.

Very malty on the nose, but still a slight flowery hop presence. Somewhere along the way, I picked up cinnamon as well.

Just the opposite on the tongue as there are heavier hop notes than the malty nose. Somewhat resinous, like some pale ales. Almost piney.

Almost balanced, but a little more bitter than the malt can offset. Reminds me a lot of Santa's Private Reserse. Not quite a pale ale, but close. Medium- to full-bodied. Full bitter, stick finish.

The bottle claims it has lactose sugar, but I didn't detect any sweetness other than the caramel matls. Not a bad beer, I can see it going really well with their pizzeria, but a little bitter for regular drinking.

22 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a reddish/copper color with a half inch off-white head that fizzled away somewhat quickly. There's a small amount of lacing. Aroma is sweet, it smells mostly like caramel malt, along with some bready malt and a sugary/cream like aroma (I assume it's the lactose). The brew tastes like caramel malt, dried fruit, cream, toffee and some light citrusy hops. There's also a slight bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's creamy and has a moderate amount of carbonation. I think this is a solid brew, it's definitely worth trying. $7.49 a bomber.

This beer arrived a couple weeks ago. Hoosier Daddy pours a light bodied chestnut brown with amber highlights and a slight off white lacing around the glass. It's pretty dark for an amber, and is a borderline brown. It isn't what I expected. The nose is pretty typical, somewhat sweet amber malts with little else. The flavors threw me for a loop. I expected an amber cream ale with a different lactose finish. What I got is a slightly hoppy amber with a strange bitter finish. There's actually a lot of hop presence. It's odd, and too bitter for the style despite only being 35 IBUs. I'd say it drinks almost like a pale. It drinks light in body and finishes dry with an odd after taste. Overall this beer was just ok. I feel that this beer is imbalanced and disjointed. Like the other beers from them in a bottle I'm left disappointed and wanting something more.
