2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle...Pours a brownish-red hue...not much froth produced on this. Aroma is full of malt, carmel...not very intense though...Drinks pretty much as expected...body seems lighter than it is because the beer seems to be lacking in CO2...so it comes of a bit lifeless and flabby. Malts dominate with carmel being the main character. Sweet, but some slight lingering bitterness shows up...though not quite enough to balance out the crystal malts. This is something I can drink easily, although a more prominent hopping would help add some depth and balance. Thanks Brent! I enjoyed it.

12/15/2013. On tap. Amber color with a white head. No surprise here. Caramel aromas with light malt. light fruit, caramel and malty flavors with a semi-sweet finish. Nothing remarkable.

Pour on tap at the brewpub, clear red pour with thin white head, aroma is caramel, toffee, spice, toasted malt, hints of grass, slight touch of grain, hints of earth and biscuit notes as well, pretty decent. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, slight grass, hints of spice, finishing earthy, dry. Eh.

Enjoyed from On tap at the Ram brewery/restaurant in Salem, OR. This is an alright amber. High marks as an amber but definitely not a "red". Moderate malts, nice and smooth. Solid amber, light red in color. The head is a nice thick white foam. 5.8 BD

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.

On tap at Ram, Tacoma. It’s a pale amber colored beer topped by a small, off-white head. The aroma is a tad buttery, and too much on the toffee side for my likings. Some pleasant malts and fruityness too. The flavor is pretty much the same, but with the added joy of bittering hops. Medium to full body, pleasant carbonation. Well, it’s not foul in any way, it’s just not my kind of amber. 130629

By far I think this is the best beer from Big Horn. Everytime I get a chance to go to C. B. & Potts I get this beer. They have good burgers also.

Dradt taster at RAM, Schaumburg. Brown beer with plenty of light edges. No foam after I’ve gotten to it on the sampler tray. American hop notes finally come through my stuffy nose. Yet it’s the malt that leaves the first impression on my tongue. Followed by a tangy caboose of bitterness. Pleasing fruity esters keep the hops from taking over.

Draft. This one was pretty bland. A little caramel and not much hop presence to speak of. Pass
