COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A deep reddish brew with medium body and carbonation. This stronger, maltier, and hoppier pale ale has a depth of hop taste and acidity in the palate and finish. Cascade dry hopping gives this popular brew a fresh, floral nose.

More bitter aroma than its taste. Hops and caramel also make up this dark red, thick-headed beer. Unique.

12oz - Aroma of piney hops and sticky carmel malts. Pours deep dark red with a big cream colored head and great lacing. Flavor matches aroma with a stiff malt back. Palate is sticky. Different and tasty.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2006 This is my staple beer. Though they just started bottling it, Iíve only ever had it on tap at the brewery. Here, it varies batch-to-batch. Generally itís full with great malts, and a clean, bitter hop finish. Both refreshing and satisfying, itís just what I want out of an ale. Hoppier of late. ......Bottle, October 2006: Much darker color, fuller body and flavor out of the new bottles. Simply fabulous.

Rated on draft at the brewing co. the day before my Lear approved ass chewing. Pours a hazy ark brown with a light head. Light spicy aroma. Sharp grain and malt sweetness moving into pine bitterness that lingers and becomes strong. Wood notes. Full dry body. Fair beverage, and fairly strong for a bitter.

The body was dark copper colored. The aroma was iced tea and toffee. The taste was toffee. The finiah was a hint of chocolate. A little roug, but still a decent session beer.

hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2006
On tap at the Arbor Brew Pub. Poured a deeper and cloudy dull copper color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of light roast, citrus, some caramel, and very light spice. Tastes follow the same. Light lacing left on the glass.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Semi-translucent and brownish-copper in color with a creamy white head and sticky lacing as we go. Sweet liquefied brown sugar over honey roasted nuts come calling in the aroma, along with whole wheat brown bread, and a touch of nutmeg spice, mild pumpernickel and rye traits. Flavor is a touch lucid, projecting spicy bitters. Rye and peppered grain. Nutty composites with spicy hops. Medium-bodied, titillating with natural bitters serving for carbonation. Finish is entirely hop harmony. Well done.

Tmoney99 (10453) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 3, 2005
Darft at Arbor Brewing. Dark red color with medium head that diminished slowly. Good complex aroma malt, citrus and sweet tone. Light to medium body with smooth texture. Above average flavor with a well balanced medium finish.

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - JUL 15, 2005
Sampled on draught @ Arbor Brewing Company in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Burgundy color. Fresh, citrusy, grapefruit hop aroma with hints of caramel and roasted malts. Complex roasted malt flavor with toasty tones and a fresh, crisp floral cascade flavor. Great texture, intensifying and melding all the flavors. Like most of Arborís stuff tonight, this was impressive.
