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.

Clear amber beer with a good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and a little crisp. Light malt cream. Medium sweet bubblegum is well integrated as are tangy fruits and a little maple. Whisper of spice. Comes together very well. Finishes semi dry.

fiulijn (15217) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 21, 2013
Best before 10/2015
Dark amber with generous head. Simple aroma, some paper and some vanilla. Dry mouthfeel, dry caramel flavor, traces of biscuity malts, strong bitterness; the final bitterness is a bit too vegetable (chicory-like).
And this is pretty much about it.

harrisoni (14104) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 14, 2013
On tap at Tap East Stratford. Amber brown with a slight haze lasting near white head. Oxidised aroma. Some ok toffee caramel malt in the mouth not much hop on the finish. Flavour is better than the aroma. It’s got some ok fruit peel flavour a bit like an esb. Oxidised aroma is poor though.

yngwie (14008) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 17, 2014
Bottle. A slightly hazy amber colored beer with a dense, light beige to off-white head leaving some lacings. The aroma is caramel-ish and lightly bready and nutty, with a nice piney and citrus peel-ish hoppyness. It’s full-bodied and lightly warming, with a nice carbonation level. The flavor is quite bitter, the hops overpowering the malty sweetness. Pine cones, hazelnut, some bread and caramel too. Lasting bitter finish with a lot of maltyness but it’s far from cloying. Sure a solid one, tasteful too. 140617
