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!

A: double-poured from bottle into frosted mug. Three fingers of cream-colored head, recalls whipping cream. Head dissipates over 3 min, lacing the mug nicely.

S: sweet and fruity, with hints of apple/pear.

T: hits with sweet caramel apple, then moves into ever-so-slight roasted malts. Finishes with simple, bitter sugar taste on the back of the tongue.

M: a bit airy for an ale, after the head dissipates it becomes very drinkable. Really activates back portion of tongue as sweetness fades to bitterness.

O: This so-called amber ale could be more accurately described as a light brown ale--just doesn't have the roasted/burnt malt flavor to constitute true amber ale. But enjoyable, session ale that North Carolina beer advocates can get behind!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

(A)Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into pint glass. Nice amber/dark gold body with a finger high light khaki head that clings with light lacing and stays around just long enough for bubbly appreciation.

(S)Notes of light caramel with slightly grassy undertones and maybe a hint of citrus.

(T)Some biscut with caramel undertones upfront balanced by a slight hop bitterness with some of the citrus almost lemony tones to finish.

(M)Slightly dry with medium carbonation and a good body.

(O)Almost a little too generic for me, has decent characteristics overall but nothing that makes this stand out from other offerings. Could maybe use more of a fuller malt profile. Not my favorite from these guys but not the worst amber I've had either.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has an amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of malts and caramel. Taste is also very malty, caramel, just a touch of hops are present. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall this is an enjoyable and easy drinking beer.
