Draft @ Slainte. Poured a deep copper color with a finger of eggshell foam. The nose is a touch of cardboard and sweet caramel malt. The palate is buttery and sticky... lots of oxidized dactyl qualities... popcorn, caramel, and a little burnt onion rings on the finish. Blah

I bought a single of this few months ago to try out. The beer store had singles on "sale" that they were trying to clear, so I figured I’d give this a shot. I am glad that I did, otherwise I probably wouldn’t have tried it. I’d say better than expected....slightly. Basically a red ale...mostly sweet and malty. I would buy again if it’s in the $7-$8 range for a six, but I think it’s closer to $9 here....so for that price there is probably better............................................ 11/20/10- They had this on sale for $8 a 6-pack so grabbed one to try again. Liked it still so went back to grab another. They offered me a case for $20 so jumped on that and took some camping. Got back and grabbed another case for $20, so now still got a full case and getting a little Lobster Aled out...but for that price it’s a no-brainer!! Has that "New England" feel and flavor.

Minderbinder (2470) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 2, 2015
Bottle 355ml. Pours dark amber/reddish with low-medium beige head. Nice lacing. Aroma is of malt, caramel. Taste is of caramel, malt, bitterness, slight acidity. Palate: Medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall: OK. Straight-forward and not really complex, but well done. Decent malt.

odinstyr (593) - Howell, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2015
Pours an amber red. Smells of bread. Taste is overly sweet, cloying minimal hop presence. Not worth drinking.

Malty red. Not that good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foamy head that lingers on top of copper brown body. Sweet malt earthy aroma. Roasted bitterness on the taste buds. Hint of sourness. I can’t help but wonder if I have beer gone bad. Has maltiness with a hint of sweetness but seems flat if not sour.

Enjoyed on tap at Lobster Joint in Brooklyn, NY. This choice seemed appropriate. Appearance is a dark amber, light white head. Aroma is mostly malty, it's decent. Taste is also malty, and also just decent. Not really a fan of this guy, but lobster rules.

downender (6880) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle. Copper coloured with a thin, white, head. Sweet caramel and yeasty red fruits, a hint or roastiness and rather boozy finish. A bit crude, but drinkable.

GIJOE (920) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - AUG 11, 2014
Pours a ruby-tinted brown with a thin, bubbly head that dissipates within a minute or two. Nose is a touch sweet with cider notes. Taste is lightly sweet at first with a crisp, hop-tinged rye finish. Light body, lively carbonation. Good brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A quite nice red. Pours a beautiful deep red with a white head. Smells of molasses and vanilla. More vanilla in the taste with a bit of hops in the finish, nicely balanced. Had on tap at Front Street Pub in Maine.

Red-brown with small tan head. Aroma malty, light hops. Medium body. Fruity off-dry flavor, malty. Not complex or anything but reasonable.
