Part of a sampler at the brewery - full body, poured a dark red-brown color. It smelled great - lots of chocolate malt and sweet tones, but was very bitter and bland on the taste. I didn't really taste any of the malts at all - more just the bitterness of the hops.

Sampler, from 2001 notes. Their menu describes the use of chocolate malt. Really? Looked more to me like a pale ale, as there was more of a hop overtone than anything else. Other than that, I can't call it much more than average. Still, a nice beer to have in a pleasant converted warehouse brewpub setting.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark amber color. Medium bodied with a decent carbonation. Sweet caramel malty smell. Taste is of sweet malt and spicy with a hint of black pepper. Finished with a decent hop bite. The brewery pours this beer too cold. Had to let it warm up a bit to enjoy the full flavor of it. Not bad.

appearance- brown and red in color with a half finger head that stays for most of the time. minimal lacing.

smell- traces of hops and sweet smells.

taste and mouthfeel- mainly mild hops and roasted flavors with a dry mouthfeel. a bit too thin.

drinkability- easy to drink. when i lived in Edmond, me and my friends would drink this all night at Old Chicago's.

Hazy dark amber with thin covering of light tan head.

Pretty evenly balanced between the darker crystal malt notes of caramel, toffee, and plum and the floral/citric flavor and lingering bitterness of Cascade hops.

Fairly full in the mouth considering the ABV. Not a terrible beer by any means, and it's not a bad session ale at $1.75/pint at happy hour.

I am really unsure about this one. It reminds me of Abita's amber, drank this one with pizza at Old Chicago restaraunt. Not to bad but it did have a bitter feel to it, which I tend not to like with my ambers. Overall this one had mixed feelings for me.

This was one of my favorites from Bricktown Brewery for a long time. Still good, just not my favorite anymore. This is essentially the same as the Copperhead Amber Ale, only with a darker roasted malt, and some caramel. Also, named after the red bricks that make up the streets in Bricktown, a small area of Oklahoma City. Pours a nice reddish brown color, minimal head, but again, mostly due to the server pouring it out in favor of more beer. Minimal lacing. Smelled of bready and roasted malts, some caramel hints there. Tasted is bready malts upfront with a light hoppiness in the middle. Some light fruitiness and roasted malts make up the finish. Full bodied and creamy mouthfeel. All around a decent brew. I would recommend that you at least try this.

Tried on tap at the brewery 6 Jun 2009. clear bright ''brick red'' color. aroma is light. carmel malts but that's about it. dry roasted nuts, almonds, filberts. no lingering finsh, medium to light body. Almost flat too. not much else to say, pretty bland beer.
