This differed from red ales I have sampled previously in its fortunate lack of metallic tinniness in flavor and stale hop smells. However this beer differed from most all beers in is medicinal candy syrup punch present in the state. The aroma was intoxicating, but difficult to define--having a certain anesthetizing quality. After awhile, I determined it has muskiness to it--that of dusk on a hot summer night as humidity holds pollen in the air a bit longer. The blend of 5 malts (a secret) is certainly the key to unlocking this enigmatic brew.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a clear ruby amber body with a small fizzy off-white head. The nose is slight sweet for the style with some lighter husky and toasty malt. The flavor is pretty poor, thin weak caramel and minimal toastiness, itís not dry at all. Medium bodied with soft fizzy carb and a slightly sticky finish. Pretty poor example for the style.
