COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep amber in color with a dense rich foamy head. The flavor is dominated by toasted malts with hints of caramel and very well balanced with English hops.

On tap at the brewery. Red-brown body with a somewhat weak head. Light aroma with a bit more malt than hops. Flavor: earthy hops and roasted grains: not enough malts of style. Feel: Medium body with overly light carbonation. Overall: disappointing.

Pours a clear amber brown on tap with thin ring of off-white head that leaves moderate lace. Aroma of diacytel again, buttery and malty. Taste is more toward the noble earthy hop and malty toastiness, again diacytel is covered. Meh, one of the better ones.

On draft at ABC. Nice clear amber color with a thin off-white head, vaguely malty aroma. Caramel flavors with just enough hops to balance. Light style.

On tap at Aiken Brewing Company. Pours a copper color with white head. Caramel, malty aromas. Caramel, slight piney hops, malty flavors. Pretty straight forward red. Nothing exciting.

Brevival Trip Beer 52. Draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy red color with a thin creamy tan head. Decent head retention. Weak aroma of grain and caramel. The taste is caramel, nuts, grain, herbal hops. Thin bodied.

Nicely malty. Very toasty malt. Moderate hop bitterness to balance. Very good red ale.

Pint at the brewpub. Looks pretty darn red without any head formation. This is malt leaning ale with flavors of caramel and biscuits, maybe just a grassy note here and there. Very inoffensive even for this style. I don’t have much to say about it.
