From a can from Charleston friends. A honey colored pour with a decent head. Nice balance of malt and hops. You can taste them both and neither overpowers. If it were local, I'd buy more.

Nice caramel malt backbone. Balanced well with hops. Not too sweet. Crushable.

I'm trying this at Capt'n Woodys on Hilton Head island. It poured a clear amber with white head with no lace. The scent had hints of caramel malt. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it was a solid beer.

On tap at the Red Fish in Hilton Head poured into a pint glass:

Look: Pours a nice copper color with about an inch of head.

Smell: Malt bomb with some caramel and bread as well.

Taste: Taste follows the nose. Malty, caramel, and some bread with some sweetness mixed in.

Feel: Medium bodied.

Overall: Decent amber ale but nothing popped out that would make me want to grab this again! Glad I got to try this while on vacation in Hilton Head!

Kind of a light colored Amber. Smells like caramel and hops. Lightly sweet, caramel, malt, hoppy. Nice carbonation but light mouthfeel. Pretty decent beer.

Very drinkable amber lager with very little carbonation making it very smooth; has your typical amber darker but transparent color with a beige head; smells of caramel, grain with a sweetness but needs more malt, grain and slight piney smell; the taste is that of a typical amber but with well balanced hops that balance out the sweetness, and malt, maybe could use a little more malt; crisp and hoppy with a sweet beginning and slightly toasty end. Overall a good beer that's very drinkable but not the greatest coming from a native South Carolinian.

From a tap at the Blossom restaurant in Charleston, SC. Pours slightly haze amber with a thin tan head. Aroma of caramel. Sweet initial malt flavors, smooth and balanced malt to hops. Only lightly carbonated and good but average body.

Not bad. Tastes more like a Marzen than A Red/Amber Ale. Pours an almost clear amber color with a medium size off-white head. Good retention and lacing. Aroma is malty with a finishing bitterness. Flavor is more of the same. The malt is not sweet like a typical Amber/Red Ale with caramel malt. he bitterness is subtle, reminding me of German hops. Mouthfeel is crisp and slightly bitter. Overall not a bad beer but there are many better representatives of the style.
