Bottle in LA. Hoppy amber ale. Not sure where that bastardised scotch ale is. Decent amber ale.

ttoadee (1269) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2015
Clear dark amber pour, thin tan head. Malt and hops in a tug of war for the nose. Bittersweet. Middle is big roasted malt footprint, sweet caramel notes, toffee lurking at the edges. Finish leans sweet, but there is still some piney kick there.

Barnacle_Ed (49) - Milpitas, California, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Bottle to glass. Deep murky red with white head. Pine, earthy malt, bread, caramel, and some sort of light fruit I can’t quite put my finger on. Persimmons, maybe? Oily mouthfeel, bitter finish, and pretty heavy. One to enjoy slowly.

Nice hoppy bitter after taste. Tinges of malty caramel complements the hops well ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22FL OZ ($5.99) very good flavors here. worth it and then some. so far bear republic has been very good. The red is not over powered but you can distinguish the levels of flavor. slow drinking is the best for this.

Prolitariat777 (102) - St george, Utah, USA - AUG 14, 2015
For sure a full bodied amber ale. Almost a big red ale. Loads of delicious malts and then come in the hops. Piney and citrus. Great balance f hops and malts. Excellent beer.

Brentv (646) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 8, 2015
Pours from bottle a hazy red brown with a very thick off-white pillowy head that sticks to the glass in clumps and doesn’t fade until the bottom of the glass, and even then, retains a bit of its head. Aroma is a rich malty caramely sweetness and the taste follows the same. Some hoppy bitterness, but the malts win the day here. This is almost a barleywine. Full mouthfeel and bittersweet finish.
