Not one of my favorites. This beer pours a reddish brown color with ok head. This beer overall is weak in flavor,. Wanted more hop bitterness but got a mild malt bitterness that wasnt that great. Seems a little watery and lacks the robust flavor of a good amber ale....Won't revisit, sorry

Had this on-tap at the Green Parrot in Virginia Beach. Served in an ice-cold pint glass so the head was fairly suppressed. Nice reddish amber color and some filmy lacing on the glass.

Aroma is fairly mild, some hoppiness and more than a touch of Belgian-type yeast.

I had this with fried oysters and onion rings and the flavor worked well with food. A bit more hoppy than malty but there were elements of both. The yeast thing I noticed in the aroma was more prominent in the taste. Seemed to work well with the other flavors and added a bit of novelty to the taste.

Mouthfeel was crisp with a nice touch of bitterness.

I would order this one again.

12 oz can.

clear medium amber color. thin off-white head that fades. malty sweet aroma, a bit nutty. a bit of butterscotch in the taste, not bad but not real great flavor. medium body and carbonation.

Served on tap at Smartmouth Brewing Company. Pours a nice amber with decent head and lacing. Aroma is not the strongest in the world, but the taste is pretty crisp with decent, dry finish. Overall not a bad amber.
