Beer 208: Scuttlebutt Amber Ale

I was going to begin this post by writing about my love of the word scuttlebutt, but decided nothing I could write would compare to this definition from the Scuttlebutt Brewing Company's website.  I'm also not feeling very motivated today.  Work is work and I would much rather be retired right now.  So there's that...

Anyway I found the Scuttlebutt Amber Ale at The Brooklyn Oyster House in Seattle.  It accompanied a few dozen oysters quite well. 

It was a lovely and deep shade of amber with a thin head.  It smelled of caramel malts and the taste was full and round.  The caramel rings through and there is just a hint of earthy hop at the finish.
