This beer has a deep red/brown color, bordering a brown. It has a pronounced chocolate presence. It has a wonderful malty nose, however it finishes somewhat sweet and in my opinion, not the ’perfect balance of hops and malt.’

CapFlu (4370) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 25, 2003
(Draught) Poura a almond head and a amber body. Slight malt nose. Lacking flavour and character. Average at best. Smooth as mentioned below...

Average amber ale, nothing too special about this at all, it was smooth & a bit drinkable, decent balance

Had this at a brewfest too. Veyr good. Pleasant to drink. Smooth and hoppy. Well balanced with hops. Thin head. Very tasty. I enjoyed it.

Another water-fest from ABC. What's with this. Nice color, but somehow the beer was still watery. Needed a lot more overall flavor.

Dickinsonbeer (5076) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2003
Nice red color with very good lasting beige head. Aroma is malty with slight hops. Malty and hoppy flavor with slight fruitiness, and a good mouthfeel. A little bland overall, but nice.

A better than average Red Ale.

Slovak34 (99) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 24, 2002
Hopefully they don’t use the river water to make this beer. It is tasty, however it’s not the best beer at ABC.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2001
Not ABC’s best - Dark ruby color, rather cloudy appearance. Malty flavor isn’t bad.
