A mostly pleasing aroma with just a whiff of ethanol. Not as off putting as it sounds. The taste is dry but juicy at the same time. A quick drop in bitterness and a somewhat tingly sensation at the end

I don’t know enough about American Strong as a category, but it seems that this might be classified differently. Pours red gold, nice pillowy white head. Moderate aromas - floral, yeast, hops. Taste is very well balanced and subtle - a gentle bitter, with a neutral malt framework. Good substance, a little chewy, I fond it to be very drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Not the best red ale. Cloudy copper color, good lacing, rocky head. Bitter at the beginning, alcoholic/hoppy in the middle. Almost no linger/aftertaste. Bad for the style but not undrinkable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Btl pours slight hazy, light amber color. Massive off white head that hangs on forever with very heavy lacing. Smells of floral hops,bread and molasses. Sweet candy/cookie taste that is followed by crisp, dry bitterness. Medium body,creamy texture with moderate carbonation. Very nice easy drinking beer considering the alcohol content. Nicely balanced, smooth ale. The hops chosen for this brew are fantastic. Beers like this make me like reds more and more.

On tap at BridgePort. Clear red with a thin beige head. Not much aroma to speak of. Taste is creamy, caramel malty, with a dry bitter metallic finish. Surprisingly plain for a "double" red ale.

At Epic Beer Fest 2013. Clear amber under a thin foamy white head. Nose is really funky like hippie BO, with a floral resinous hop undertone. Flavor is really hoppy with some floral and pine resin up front, followed by some boozy sweet yet bitter caramel undertone. Too bitter overall without much hop nuance.
