Had this on 2014-12-08 in Gallatin, TN from a bottle

Light bready aroma. Sourdough, slightly herbal hops. Not much caramel for an amber. Light body and medium high carbonation. Refreshing and fairly interesting for a lower ABV brew. Worth a try.

Bottle of local brew, here in Nashville.
Pours a clear, amber color with a decent looking head, leaves just a thin trail of lace behind.
Smells of caramel malt and some grain husk. Minimal hop aroma.
Taste starts with the caramel malt up front, all around more on the sweet side.
Grainy, bitterness comes through at the end.
Mouthfeel and body is light to medium, with moderate carbonation.
Decent for the style, but I have had a couple better examples. Still pretty enjoyable on a hot
humid day.
