Had at the grand opening. Served from tap into a NoDa shaker. Pours deep red orange with a two finger off-white head that subsided to half finger slowly. Maintained phenomenal lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, caramel, earth, caramel hop, butterscotch, and subtle sweet milk. The flavor was of sweet malt, caramel, earthy, earthy hop, subtle citrus, and butterscotch. It had a medium feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. The flavors were very well blended and complimented each other quite well. This made this brew quite easy to drink and could be a good intro brew for n00bs to craft beer. Tick.

On tap at Duckworths in Ballantyne. Served in a pint glass

Clear deep copper/amber color with reddish highlights. About two fingers worth of off white head recedes slowly leaving behind an impressive amount of lacing.

Rich caramel and bready malts are the most noticable aromas, but there are some interesting toasty notes, and some slightly citrusy and floral hops.

Bready, toasty, and caramel malt notes top out the flavors. Hops are slightly citrusy, but more floral and earthy. Medium bodied and moderately carbonated with a very smooth mouthfeel. Very drinkable, solid beer overall.

I wasn't really sure what to expect from this beer. NoDa seems to have a real affinity for beers on the hoppyer end of the spectrum, I almost expected something much hoppier like a Red Rocket or Big Hoppy Monster. I was surprised and impressed with how this beer turned out, very nice easy to drink traditional amber ale... Nicely done
