    Chestnut colored body, filmy white head, and slippery lacing. Lots of caramel and butter in the aroma. Honey roasted peanuts and perhaps a bit of coffee. Light mellow body that's balanced but finishes too short. A boatload of butter in the flavor, minor roasted caramel and that's about it. Strange brew, one was enough.

    Thanks to Blue Lou for letting me try this one. Pours a not very attractive muddy reddish brown colour. Aroma is actually decent, some sweetness like cinnamon, coffee and malt coming through. Taste is very light. Not bad but not a typical amber. Actually very reminiscent of the Leine's Red. Sort of thin. It also reminds me of Railhouse amber. Semi sweet and fruity like raisins.

    From fargingbastige6. Has a orange colored pour with a small head and no lacing. Aromas of soured butterscotch and old apple cider with a touch of sweet malts. Flavor is again a sourish-butterscotch that overwhelms anything else. At least there are some beers coming out of Alabama but they need to get better.

    I've given this beer the benefit of the doubt a few times now... I want to like it, I want to support breweries in my state, but dammit, they just need to brew something good. The beer is beautiful, but I didn't buy it to look at... There is a hint of coffee, some malt, but sadly very little hopiness. Embarrasing, really.

    Pours a weak stool brown , light fancy man lacing .. . empty two day old coffee carafe and twig aroma .. . weak mouth and a lame attempt at a session beer .. . . Lots of my friends have babies, but I don't have any babies, but I have lots of friends - babies don't have any friends. They all have those baby-monitors so they can hear the baby from the other room, which I consider a form of wire-tapping. One day there's gonna be a really smart baby who makes a fake recording of some fake baby noises... Gonna crawl out of the window and go to Italy.

    I really liked the flavor of this, but alas, the rest just didn't measure up. Aroma was malty, with a slight nutty background. Poured brown (as expected) with little to no head. Laced very lightly down the glass. Average mouthfeel, could have been a thicker, chewier but wasn't. The flavor was good for a brown, with a very good balance of malt with slight hop notes. I didn't see the metallic flavors noted by others. A very average brown ale. I'd like to see 'Bama breweries do better, at least get us something worth mentioning.

    Beer looked beautiful on the pour...fluffy head that wouldn't go down for nuttin'. Dark amber color...a little darker than the typical amber ale. The aroma was typical and I was excited to drink it. I think bfeldmann and eaglefan538 were having palate issues from too much drinking that night (coffee?). Okay, there might have been a touch of roastiness in the flavor, but I didn't notice coffee. When hitting the tongue, the beer seemed like it was going to be really good. The malt hit you, but didn't finish with the sweetness that an amber ale is supposed to have. It left me wanting more (not more beer, but more flavor)...it almost tasted stale. Mouthfeel was okay, not overly thin, but not sticky either...maybe a little overcarbonated. Flavor didn't improve as it warmed. I guess this isn't a horrid beer, but there are many better ones out there...at least outside Alabama.

    Ba humbub yet again. Poured an amber color with a huge head, didn't lace though. Aroma was of coffee??? Flavor was of coffee and citrus fruits. Mouthfeel was thin yet again. Thanks to eagle for the beer from bama, but won't drink from there again.

    Poor Alabama!!! I've never had an amber ale with coffee in it. I've also never had a coffee citrus combo flavor like this one. A sad beer. Poured with a huge head that didn't lace too well. The aroma was foul, some coffee and chemical aromas. The flavor was coffee and citrus, but not much caramel or any hop presence. Man, do they regulate flavor along with ABV in Alabama? Mouthfeel was acidic and weak, although there was cloudiness present in the body.

    Poured from a bottle, with no head and a orangebrown color with tons of little floaties in it. Smelled of sour apples. It almost tasted like a hard cider type of brew. Maybe they got to creative with this....not real sure..not a very good beer.
