Tomahawk Amber Ale

Brew available “exclusively” at Turner Field for Atlanta Braves home games although I suspect it is the same beer (certainly similar, if not identical) to this one;

Thanks to BA, AKSmokedPorter for the info.

As AKSmokedPorter says; “They’ve proven they can brew a beer like this, why not do it regularly for the general public????”

With reference to the Tomahawk Amber Ale;

It pours a decent dark brown color with a nice, compact head (nitro-type) that lasted. A nice drink with a sweet malt start and finish with plenty of caramel tastes and a decent hoppy backbone. Good mouthfeel, not a bad beer at all. Put it in the context of a baseball game and you have a (relatively) tasty macro offering. Quite drinkable if you can swallow the utterly ridiculous $7.00 price tag!

In the words of AB themselves as a response to my email inquiry;
