A - Poured out a clear, light amber color with a one-finger, off-white head of bubbly foam. It left some sudsy trails of lace.

S - It smelled of sweet caramel malt and some floral notes.

T - Sweet malt and caramel dominate the flavor of this one. Very light bitter hop bite.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A light bodied ale with a dry finish.

O - This is an okay amber ale. Not the best I've had from Blind Tiger but it could be a good beer for some one just getting into craft beer.

On tap at the brewpub in August 2009. Reviewed from notes.

Pours a moderately deep amber color with an off white head and a good number of lace rings. Nose brings slightly sweet and toasted bred and a bit of earthy hops. Taste and feel come together to present a somewhat dry beer with moderate sweetness comic from caramel and toast. Drinks fairly well and is one of the better beers that we had at this location.

Deep red color and light cherry aroma belied a weak malt character with an even lighter hops "balance." The finish was slightly dry. I was disappointed and wished the brewer would have committed to something besides the color, unfortunately the flavor spectrum didn't match the visual spectrum.

Dark crimson in color, with little head. Light malty aroma, with a heavier earthen or floral aroma that I take to be the hops.

Smooth malt sweetness up front, with more of the earthen/floral hop bitterness at the end. Smooth mouthfeel, but a bit too thin.

Not a bad amber, but the hops seemed to be a little too dominant, not a good balance between the malts and the hops.

Color of orange-brown with a thin white lace on the glass. The aroma is soapy with a light malt undertone. The heavier body uplifts a generous malt profile with a light bitter spicy balance. Tasty offering.

Clear light bronze hue, topped by a one fingered, tight off white head that leaves loose lace. The aroma is a combination of medium caramel sweetness, mellow biscuit and an earthy hop nose. All around, this brew exhibits balanced malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Lightly floral Goldings hop flavor. Lightly bodied and a touch weak in mouthfeel, but quite quaffable. A hint of diacetyl butterscotch is present as an undertone. Finishes lightly sweet, but otherwise clean and crisp. A well rounded amber, but a bit understated and certainly not outstanding.
