Zymurgeist2 (1649) - Redwood City, California, USA - APR 9, 2015
Bomber to pint glass. Aromas of overt rich malt but also a hint of cardboard in the background. No detectable hop present - how unusual for an American Red! Pours clear amber-mahogany with an off-white head that retains as just a collar and a dusting across the top. Taste is bread and biscuit malts. Moderate high carbonation with a thin mouthfeel for the malt. Back half of palate is a rough bitterness that seems a little medicinal and finishes astringent. Some good aspects of this beer tail off in the taste, especially as it warmed.

Great aroma of caramel and nuts with a bit of chocolate. Deep ruby red color. Very caramel and actually a bit hop forward in taste. Slight smokiness. Smells better than it tastes. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vaiz (4182) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - SEP 26, 2013
Draught @ the Beach Chalet restaurant. Clear deep golden to amber pour. Aroma is spicy, some herbs, yeasty and with some grains. Flavor is slightly bitter, grainy and malty. A bit watery and boring.

brokensail (15271) - San Leandro, California, USA - DEC 25, 2012
Dark amber pour with an off-white head. Toasted malt, toffee, and bready hops. A hint of fruit esters, floral and grassy hops, and some celery notes on the finish. The flavor has a bit more pronounced celery/vegetal quality. Sweet bread, toast, and toffee malt base to the beer. Some light hop character, same as the aroma, and a very mild hop bitterness.

Draught @ the brewpub, San Francisco. Rated on 18.10.2012.
Pours a copper brown with a small head. Aroma of toasted malts, nuts and mild bready notes. Flavour of toasted malts, nuts, raisins, sweet caramel and some grassy notes. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a malty, nutty finish. Good.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2012
From sampler at the brewpub, 17/08/12. Pale ruby with a cream foam draping the tube. Peach confectionary and rose aroma. Sweet, peachy malt and flowers departing blandly with a hint of strawberry yeastiness. OK.

Some strong toasty and caramel taste. You can really feel the hop bitterness. But honestly speaking just not my favored taste.

Im not a huge fan of your average red ale, and this is a bit beneath average. So, I would pass on this.
