COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A quaffable, well-balanced red ale with character. Its malty complexity and coppery color come from a combination of two caramel malts, pale malt, and a hint of maple syrup.

Pretty happy red with a low enough maple addition to not take away from this. Light bitter finish. Pours amber with good head and lacing. Thanks to radagast. Bottle at scion.

A good amber. Substantial hop aroma aroma and dry flavor of hops and grain. Dry all around really, especially in the finish. Nice copper color and a substantial head. More of a pale ale really.

12oz bottle shared. Poured a medium orange with off white head. Minor lacing down the sides of the glass. Aroma is medium to heavy malt and hops and caramel. For an amber ale this has a nice hop bite to it. Quite malty on the front end. Overall pretty solid amber.

From bottle. Clear amber color. Aroma is citrus hoppiness and crystalized maple. Taste is tart citrus like grapefruit and a lot of caramel and maple malts. Both nicely bitter and sweet.

robbienate (113) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2014
Pours a brilliantly clear, deep amber color; modest head formation (creamy texture, off-white); tight lacing. A fruit-forward, slightly syrupy aroma: a lot of candied sweetness, plus ripe red fruits; a light dose of earthy hops, but mostly focused on the sweet parts; I can’t say I’d immediately peg this as maple syrup from the nose. Medium body or a touch higher; medium-high, fine-bubbled CO2; there’s a tinge of warming alcohol here, at least when it warms; following the nose, plenty of red fruits, a maple syrup/slightly caramelized sweetness, and a little more bitterness than was suggested by the aroma.

Butelka 0.33L.
Wygląd: Miedziane, klarowne z iskrą. Piana obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, w kolorze ecru. Dość trwała i firankuje.
Aromat: Słodki, pieczone jabłko, syrop klonowy, karmel, pieczywa, cytrusy, mango i minimalnie alkoholowy.
Smak: Przypieczone ciasto, toffee, karmel, podpalany cukier, ciemne pieczywo a bardziej skórka przypalona ciemnego pieczywa, lekko metaliczne. Goryczka niska+, lekko wyczuwalny alkohol, szczególnie w posmaku.
Odczucie: Ciało lekko poniżej średniego, nasycenie CO2 średnie do wysokiego, faktura kremowa z suchym/wytrawnym finiszem.
Całość: Całkiem fajne red/amber ale, ale trochę za bardzo alkoholowe i lekko metaliczne.

radio_nowhere (893) - Maryland, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle into pint glass, cloudy coppery-amber color with tan head. Aroma of caramel malt, faint maple and slightly fruity. Taste adds notes of stronger citrus/pine hops, toast with toffee/maple showing up near the finish. Medium body, low carbonation, dry with lingering light citrus/hop finish. Hoppier then aroma led on, subtle maple accents rather then leads. Very nice treat.

zizzybalubba (1476) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 11, 2014
12 oz. bottle from The Hop Yard, Raleigh, NC. Reddish-orange pour with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of pine, pineapple, and caramel malt. Taste offers juicy citrus upfront, with some bitterness on the back end, and finally maple syrup to round it all out. The end result gives just a hint of autumn warmth to a fantastic amber ale.
