12oz. bottle poured a dark reddish color with a small slightly off white head that leaves a few specks of lace around the glass.
Smell - slight floral hop aroma and a hint of caramel malt.
Taste - lots of bland club soda like flavor up front with a very mild hop presence and a bit of dryness towards the end.
Feel - over carbonated, a bit dry and sticky in the aftertaste.
Drinkability - I can finish this one but I just don't understand what Duck-Rabbit was thinking when you compare this to the other quality brews they offer. I may give this a second chance some time and hope this bottle was not what they intended their beer to taste like.

12 oz bottle, poured into a pint glass
Appearance: Pours a murky brown color, not amber at all, almost muddy, with a quarter of a finger of white-head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that almost completely covered the top of the beer in wispy clouds.
Aroma: Very malty and bready, with some pronounced sweet aromas of honey and toffee.
Taste: Malty up front, quickly followed by some pronounced but not overpowering hoppy bitterness. There’s practically no sweetness present, just a lot of pleasant hops.
Mouthfeel: Medium with some good carbonation to tickle the taste buds. With an ABV of 5.5%, there’s no presence of alcohol on the palate.
Overall: This is a pretty solid amber ale, and unique to other ambers that I’ve had (Fat Tire, Honker Ale, etc.) in that it’s much more hop forward that I’m used to, but in a very tasty way. I’d certainly have it again.
