12 oz bottle.
Pours a orange amber with a small white head that dissipates quickly.
Malt and hops are the first thing I smell.
Taste is that of malts, some hops but has an interesting flavour of lemon.
Mouth feel is light with minimal bitterness.

12 ounce bottle consumed with lunch, on to the beer:

Beers don't look better than this. Its brass orange color glows in the eyes, yellow hues mix in a second color. Lively bubbles rush through the body. At the tops rests a thick, creamy head which not only maintains its size, but keep a thick canopy all the way to the end while splashing the glass walls with froth. The aroma comes out soft, but with notables flavors of semi-sweet chocolate, diacetyl, earth, and a brushing of hops.

Over-The-Rhine doesn't taste like a beer inspired by such river. Instead, it tastes like it was inspired by the River Trent. That's not a problem here, as this beer is riddled with little notes of goodness which keeps me coming back. There a note of toffee mixed with baker's chocolate. Soft pine, earthiness, orange, and a relatively clean overall flavor work together. The beer is light bodied, gentle, and is a quaffable ale.

A dark horse in the land of over the top ales. Over-The-Rhine takes a step back with the intensity, but come out two steps ahead with overall joy.

Thanks to @WesMantooth for this one.

Pours beautifully. Amber with a hint of ruby. Slight head froths and dissipates quickly.
Smells like an Amber Ale, malty with a crisp hop note.
Taste is initially a nutty/sweet malt followed a slight dry woodiness.
Finish stays with more of that dry woodiness.
Pretty good(sure I'd drink it again, you buying?), but nothing to write yo mama about.

I liked most of this experience. If I could find it locally I would buy more.
