COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Red Ale was brewed to bring out the most malt flavor possible. Made from numerous styles of caramel malts, used in near excessive quantities. Our red ale defines malt flavor. A brilliant scotch like color and pleasant toasted malt aroma are complimented by a bold caramel finish.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2014 Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a dark caramel-amber color with a medium sized foamy beige head that left decent lacing. The aroma was faint overall with hints of vague fruits, maltiness and caramel. The flavor was malty caramel, crystal malt and hints of dark fruits and tobacco. Medium finish. Medium body. Meh.

From old brief notes. On draft at the brewpub in my hometown. Pours a deep red with small creamy white head. Aroma is bland malts, caramel, a bit of candy I guess. Flavor follows with bland malt, some bitter hops, and not a particularly clean finish. Not terrible but not something I would revisit.

Draft. Pours reddish-amber with thick, frothy, light beige head; short retention and some lacing. Aroma is bread malt, caramel, plums, and light oak. Flavor is heavy malt, light hops, and medium esters; somewhat flat with a dry finish. Light body with low carbonation and warmth.

Red and clear, like amber. Malty with very little hop character. Like a barley tea. Pleasant.

Block (1520) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - SEP 6, 2011
They brew a lot of beers that seem really similar to me. Light caramel malt flavor with just a touch of hops. Decent and over exaggerated in their description.
