Notes / Commercial Description:
The Duck-Rabbit Amber Ale is a medium bodied beer with a lovely tawny copper / bronze color. The lightest of all our dark ales, this is a great introduction to full flavored beers. This brew emphasizes malt complexity with layered caramel malt flavors. We put a lot of effort into getting The Duck-Rabbit Amber Ale just right and we're extremely proud of the result. Enjoy!

Poured from 12oz bottle into schooner glass. A healthy 2" frothy head drops slowly with plenty of lacing. Mostly clear amber color with abundant streaming carbonation. Aroma of pleasant malt bread dough, raisin, plum and some floral hops. Mouthfeel between light and medium with an easy going dry finish. Flavors of caramel, raisin, plum, a hint of molasses blend well with the earthy and floral hops. Really enjoyed this one.

Pours a amber/reddish. Slight aroma, non distinctive. Effervescent mouth feel, malty back taste. Not hop heavy, would go nicely with most any meal.
Not bad, not note worthy, not regretting the buy, just wouldn’t search it out.

The world of amber ale is so diverse. Maybe too much....But THIS . Is. Amber as I prefer it. Absolutely rich and delicious. Destroys Abita amber,flat tire and so many others. Richness that reminds me of Green Man ESB, but not quite as dense or heavy on the palate, which is fine. Fat, caramel, toffee heaven. Pours beautifully. Will definitely be getting more of these!

Is it a duck, or is it a rabbit? Is it a good beer or a malt bath? Looks like a duck, quacks like a malt bath, as it ought to. It is a decent light dark beer. Really ideal for Thanksgiving dinner. Excited to find this at a Target, of all places.
