look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass.
Aroma- Has a slight hop aroma with yeast, faint but inviting.
Appearance- Pours a reddish brown with a small white head.
Taste- Has a rather malty flavor that I enjoy with that is more toasted malt than anything else, there is some hops in the background.
Palate- A light to medium bodied beer with mild carbonation.
Overall- A thoroughly enjoyable beer, I will drink this again. (422 characters)

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 (289 characters)

Poured from a can into a shaker pint, the beer is a deep, vibrant, copper coloring with a filmy, foamy, clingy, off-white head. Aromas of sweet caramel, nutty notes, hints of roast, and cream highlights. Flavors are heavily roasted forward, with tangy caramel and nut sweetness to follow. Very rich and sweet throughout, with a subtle bitterness to clean up the palate a bit. Round and full bodied, but light and drinkable. The aftertaste is a slightly cloying nut and caramel blend, with hints of chocolate. Smooth, light, lingering finish. Not bad, but nothing overly remarkable. (581 characters)

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. (653 characters)

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. (216 characters)
