Aurelius (4109) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 4, 2003
Nice, nutty, hoppy aroma. Superb, rich brown-red with creamy head. Lightly sweet, nutty, well-hopped. Good mouth, but goes a little flat. Quick woody, medium hoppy finish.

Draught at the brewpub. Pours copper with offwhite head. The aroma is toast and slight caramel with a roasty touch and a hint of lemon. The flavor is toast, a little bit of caramel, and slight roast. Distant earthy hops and a slight metallic note are in the finish.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JAN 10, 2007
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.

DrinkEmUpJones (1062) - Georgia, USA - JUN 2, 2010
Amber with good lacing. Nose is very light. Clean mouth feel with a light nuttiness and a short, bitter hoppy finish. Different for a "red" beer. Nice, but not great.

On tap at Aiken Brewing. A clear amber pour with off white head. Malty scent. Taste was balanced with a dry finish. Nice
