Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: rich, dark amber hue which shines bright red in the light. Body is haze-free with a moderate effervescence and a thin layer of tan foam. Color is wonderful, though I wish the head were a little more prominent.
Smell: rich, sweet caramel character -- this beer exemplifies how caramel malt flavors should be done. That said, it lacks complexity and intensity; but the purity of the aroma which is there is just great.
Taste: rich, brilliant caramel, along with a little breadiness and just a bit of toast and biscuit. Quite good, and although ambers are not really my thing, this does a pretty good job of it.
Mouthfeel: medium body with a good carbonation and a nice creaminess. I don't know what it is, but every beer I have tried today has had a great creaminess. Something in the atmosphere, maybe?
Overall: as I said, I'm not a great fan of amber ales unless they are extremely well-done. The caramel in Scurry really is something to experience, and, while some of its surrounding flavors don't float my boat, I do enjoy this beer.

A dark brown color, this beer looks a lot like cola both in the color and the bubbling near-effervescence. The off-white head spritzes down quickly, and it looks more soda-like as the edges lighten and thin. There's not much lace, but a little.
There's a mingling of tangy and sweet on the nose, toasty and nutty in a particular way, with an unusual note I can only think of as grist. There's a slight dry bitterness, too.
The flavor brings a bit more roast, downright toasty in the middle, with strong notes of dry and soft malts and grains. There are fruity esters throughout, a little leafy bitterness that seems almost woody as it dries, and a finish of baker's chocolate.
The body is just short of effervescent and rests on the border of light and medium. It's starts off with the promise of a bigger body, sweetness, maybe even creaminess, but dries out (which is nice) and still keeps some smoothness. It does go a little thinner than the style calls for, but all in all it's good stuff.

A- pours out dark brown and appears black in the glass. A very thin off white head that fizzles out and leaves a white ring around the glass.
S- very grainy, dark wheat, earthy aromas
T- similar to the nose very raw and grainy, finishes with a subtle sweetness that lingers pleasantly. Honey comes through nicely.
M- thin body with moderate carbonation. A good amount of residual sweetness for a 5 percenter that rounds the beer out.
O- I'm glad I grabbed this in my travels. It's a very tasty, easy drinking beer. Surprised by the blend of raw grain and sweetness.

T- light roasted malts, caramel, toffee, honey, coco, a bit of bitterness.
M- light-medium bodied, nice and smooth. a bit thin and water.
