Sweet and malty up front with a good citrusy hop flavor and bitterness. This was my favorite of the sampler.

Good overall color and head. Average aroma. More a classic Amber than a Red Ale, more malt than hops. Still balanced and roasty. Good with a Steak and Mushrooms. One of the Brewery’s two best for me.

Pours a cloudy murky brown color with a thin off-white head. Very malty taste, sweet, with hints of caramel and toffee. Aroma was very sweet as well, malty and rich, with a almost nutty quality. This brew was so sweet it was almost unnatural in a beer, still not bad though.

On tap at the Ram/Big Horn in Rosemont, IL. Pours a coppery red amber brew with an average off-white head that dissolves to a fine film and good lacing. Aroma of light caramel, toffee, mild malt, and a touch of citrus hops. Taste is medium body, lightly carbonated with a slight hop bite. Finish is sweet with a touch of citrus peel dryness.

I liked this amber. It was pretty good. A nice balance, however slightly muted. Deep dark reddish brown mahogany color with a fluffy head.
