3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Aroma has a fruity hoppy thing going. Pours a clear orange amber with a none lasting off white head and minimal lacing. The taste has a slightly sweet quality with citrus hops being the predominate flavor. Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Overall, an interesting take on a red. A little happier than I normally like.

Tap. Pours with clear bronze body with a small tan head. Decent lace. Aromas are fruity, tons of caramel, raisins, medium esters. Pine and grassy hop notes. Flavors are fruity, very estery, dark fruit (special B?), caramel, crystal malt laden. Bitter without a huge hop flavor. Lively carbonation, but a bit sticky.

Draught at Black Sheep Lodge, Austin, Oct. 20. Pours a deep orange-amber with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Slightly mild aroma (for an Imperial) of caramel malt, a good amount of hops, some fruit and some alcohol. Malty flavour along with a good amount of hops and a hint of alcohol. Dry, bitter finish. Medium bodied. Pretty good stuff for a "Red".

Half pint cask version at DH- served a semi transparent darkened orange color, a very small head formed even though it was in one of the smallest glasses at the joint. Aroma of pine hops and wood. Hits the mouth with a high light body, malt gets lost in the hops and wood, some cream in the middle (cask effect), finish is just mildly acidic. Mkay...

Another good one from Texas. Some sweetness and a hint of alcohol, but an easy one to drink - I had two.

Tastes imperial. I mean rather imperial. I mean impish. (thumbs through dictionary) I mean, it tastes bitter and my lack of ability to describe beers makes me rather bitter, but I rather fancy this beer and had numerous ppints this weekend and still want more and thus I end my rating and head back to the fluidity of imbibing.
