Growler courtesy of kp sampled on 1/4/07: Pours a slightly hazy copper red with a thin, wispy white head. Aroma of lightly sweet, toasty crystal malts and a mild citrusy hoppiness. Body starts with a lightly sweet toasty, earthy maltiness toward a blander bittersweet finish. An average red ale.

Growler. Poured a hazy dark orange copper color with a small off-white head. The aroma was mildly hoppy with notes of oranges and some citrus with a sweet candy malt underneath. Malty cereal flavor with some citrus and sweet fruit. There was a hint of tartness on the finish.

Tap at Brewery: hefty amouts of carbonation, thin to no head... nice deep red color. A little thicker palet than most marzen/ambers... an ever so slight hop, but lots of malt flavors. Nice light smooth eazy drinking brew. a very safe, but nice beer

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep red hue with an off white head. Almost not aroma as you start to sip. Very little to set this apart from a commercial beer. Too bad. The aftertaste reminded me of cough syrup. Not a bad beer, but their stout and gran cru are far better for me.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is one of those beers that has the potential to be great, but just slips and falls by the way side. This is just lacking a few key ingredients. It really needs a strong malt character to back up the flavor. Just too light for my taste.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2004 Perfect red-brown color. Mild aroma. Well balanced red ale with slightly sweet malt flavors, with a nice hops finish, especially once it warms up.
