I have this beer on tap every Indianapolis Indians game I attend, I get a season ticket package. This is a hazy amber color with a foamy head that fades pretty quick. Moderate carbonation. Has a sweet malty smell to it. The taste is sweet and malty as well with a nice hop finish. As far as I am concerned, this is a must have while at the ball park. Nothing better than watching a ball game with some good local brew.

Had two at Victory Field 07 July 08, when the Indianapolis Indians took on (and beat 3-2) the Colubus Clippers.

Pours a great dark red color with great head and nice lacing, with a fair bit of carbonation. It has a nice deep earthy scent, malty without being overly sweet. Great taste, a very deep draught with nice malty overtones, well balanced, with a nice sweet-and-sour finish, not quite an Irish red finish. It goes down very smoothly. The best beer to get at an Indy Indians game.

Appropriately hazy, brownish-amber in color with a small amount of foam that drops away pretty quickly. The smell is relatively weak but pleasant enough, with sweet, grainy malt leading the way. Taste has more balance than I had thought it might based on the nose. A hoppy crispness gives way to a sweet, somewhat chewy malt base that--while not doing anything too interesting--lingers a bit. Mouthfeel falls nicely between crisp and chewy. I get this because it isn't 't Bud or Bud Light. Even beyond that good reason, it's worth a try.

This beer is only available at Victory Field, home of the Indianapolis Indians minor league baseball team. It's similar to OB's Indiana Amber, but with a higher malt profile. Deep amber color, very little foam. Very malty in nose and flavor, without being very sweet. A slight touch of carmel and diacetyl, and just enough hops to balance the flavor. Medium mouthfeel... very refreshing and very drinkable. This is a wonderful amber, and I might just go back to see more games just to drink this one!
