3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Humperdink’s Addison, TX. Pours honey-gold, like a nice glass of whisky. Aroma has hints of chocolate and malt. Medium-bodied mouthfeel. The flavor is more reminiscent of an IPA than an amber, but it still retains a nice toast flavor with a decent balance between the sweetness and the sourness.

Draft in Alrington, TX
This was one of the best brews of the night out of the 8 beers I tried. Really has no new taste that grabs me, tastes like most ambers.

Draft in Indy. Dark amber color with average off-white head. Aroma and flavor was a medium malt and caramel. Medium to full body with small sweet finish. Matchs style well.

I thought they served me another "Big Red" judging by the deep coppery brown color. Aromas gave it away... without a hop presence, but a slightly yeasty, caramel malted quality. All-malt flavor was sweet to the point of cloying. Medium-bodied with a syrupy texture.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the Ram in University Village, Seattle. Dark tawny color with virtually no head. The nose is a combination of caramel and nutty malt. Soft, but not too complex, and lacking of anything but malt flavors. Decent but boring.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at RAM, Schaumburg,IL: Darker almond color with a thin fizzy head that disappears almost as soon as she puts the pint down. Graininess, as far as malts go, some bitter hints at the finish, but overall it’s a bland and nearly tatsteless beer.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2005 Nothing very complex here. It pours a nutty brown color with a near non-existant off-white head. Has a roasted malt aroma. It’s got a smooth mouthfeel, solid malt flavors, sweet & roasted. Lots of carbonation with a crisp finish.

Definately amber with thin white head...aroma all malts, much like a brown...the only complex thing about this beer, is the hop bitterness first, then a caramel nutty finish, seemed sort of reversed to me...the sad thing is that this beer might really be "The most complex of their beer line-up"
