A robust red ale that combines a rich deep malty flavor from our British Crystal malt, with a classic hop bitterness from the large dose of Cascade hops. An aggressive ale brewed for the beer connoisseur.

Red-orange with a light tan head. Aroma is toasty and caramel maltiness. Taste is the same toasted malt, caramel, citrus and pine hops.

Avengedpoet (329) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUL 7, 2009
On tap at the brewery in Nashville. Deep red/amber color. Crystal malt and citrus hop aroma. Taste is hoppier; more bitter than flavorful or aromatic. Interesting for an amber beer, but definitely not my favorite.

On tap at Big River Grille, Nashville. I don’t know...I feel there was something wrong here. Taste is off while aroma and appearance are good. I need to retry this sometime.

On tap at Big River Grille, Nashville. Pours dark brown/red with nice head and good lacing. Nice floral hoppy aroma. Good hop hit and nice sweet malt taste.

Ughsmash (7182) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 24, 2009
On tap at Big River – WDW. Poured clear coppery-amber with a short cap of beige head.. left sticky lacing as it descended. The aroma picked up sweet candied, toasted caramel with lesser notes of dark fruit.. some citrus overtones, but they were mostly suppressed by the sweetness. Sweet caramel and dark fruits on the flavor’s core with a decent dose of hops showing up (scratchy, rough pine and citrus primarily).. rough and bitter again on the finish. Light-medium bodied with a good moderate level of carbonation.. bitterness was too rough for this to be enjoyable.

Tasted as part of a sampler at Big Rivers’s Fla location....huge taste of diacetyl, truly unpalatable. I hope this was just a bad batch, as the other beers in the sampler were at least "OK"

BREWMUSKCLES (2302) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2008
good citrusy hops in a moderate body of good caramel type roasted malt that is slightly sweet and flavorful with %5.5 abv as stated on the menu this beer is a tasty amber dry enough to satisfy clean memorable finish slightly sweet

I ended up drinking several of these at Disney World because it was about the best beer I could find. A nice hoppy amber ale. Good malty taste with a nice citrusy hope presence as well.

beerbill (3538) - Laurel, New York, USA - SEP 2, 2008
On tap at the Seven Bridges brewpub in Jacksonville, FL and labelled as Seven Bridges American Red. I had this beer with my lunch on the return trip from Disney, and oddly enough, this beer’s rating is almost eactly the same as the three beers I drank on the way down. Anyway...arrived at the table a clear reddish amber with a moderate off-white head that faded to a ring at mid-glass and left a layer of foam with each sip. Aroma of malt with a few notes of pine. The flavor is malt up front followed by some pine and grapefruit. If I were blindfolded, I would swear this was an east coast IPA and not a red ale. Went well with my burger.
