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.

(On tap) Nashville. Clear, pale amber with a creamy, off-white head. Fresh, lightly citrusy aroma from the Cascade hops. Medium body with a vague hint of caramel. Distinct, hoppy finish. 290306

12-ounce bottle left over from WBC ’06. Very nice red ale but not distinctive in any way. Straightforward balance of malt and hops, good red color. Well made but unexceptional.

Nothing special - just a hint of Caramel malt to add some flavor, and a hint of hops as well. Nice flavor and color.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 16, 2006
Nashville. Lord, help us. Transparent, magnifying copper in color with the slightest accent of red. First aromatic deviation of the night. Sweet honeyed bread with a simcoe-esque bitter-sweet sensation. Spicy toffee flavor might be a stretch, but the special effort is appreciated and noted. Weak, hopped water. Dammit. Takes on a trait of werthers originals sitting in a dog water dish for a year plus. Putrid copper pennies that made their way into the flower planter come through in the finish.

PorterPounder (7335) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 11, 2006
On tap at the Disney Boardwalk loction. Pours a medium to dark copper color - decent white head. Fresh, floral aroma with hints of citrus, perhaps a bit of malt in there. Flavor has a touch of caramel and chocolate, some sublte citrus notes - very good balance. Overall a decent brewpub amber and the best of my latest vist to Big River.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - MAR 6, 2006
Nashville. Hazy orange brown in the glass with an off white head that mostly lasted and left behind some lacing. Faint hoppy aroma. The flavor reminded me of a weak IPA. Nice citrus, some pine, and a light bitterness. Light to medium body that was enjoyably smooth and left a slight bitter aftertaste.

hopdog (11560) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2006
On tap at the Disney World Boark Walk location. Poured a very dark orange color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of stronger citrus (mainly oranges) and some caramel. Tastes of lemons, grapefruit, and somewhat nutty. Lively body.

decaturstevo (5788) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - JAN 28, 2006
Deep copper red wtih about 1/2" of white head that goes away quickly, but maintains the slight moon ring down the glass until the end. Strong aroma of hops a beer that tasted alot like it smelled. It leaves a medium bittering on the back of your tongue. Not a bad brew at all I would be proud if I could clone it. I could drink it every day but couldn’t drink it all day.

morrdt (715) - Dirty Mo’, North Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2006
Draft. Very dark amber with a nice light head. Rich tones of hops and a nice malted scent to it. Clean, sweet finish and a very drinkable beer. They should bottle this stuff.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JAN 22, 2006
Draught at the Charlotte, NC Rock Bottom location. Orange color with thin off white head. Malty molasses and citrus hop aromas with similar flavors that are accented by raisin and dried cherry undertones. Finish is slightly bitter.
