12 oz Bottle. Pours a dark red-copper with a half finger of tan head. Settles quickly with a little lacing. Aroma is malty, nutty. Flavor is malty up front, fading into nutty, slightly fruity tones. Moderate carbonation and medium-light body. Crisp, light, drinkable. A pretty solid brew.

Deep amber/red moderate cloudy. Nice lacing. Sips full with slight caramel and hop flavor. Nicely balanced brew with a higher abv. Sneaky strong!

On tap poured a cloudy orange-brown hue with large frothy beige head. Moderate sweet malty rye aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a bold bitter finish of ling duration. Tastes are rye, caramel, brown sugar, hay, and pine. Full bodied. It may be one of the longest lasting finishes of any beer I've had.

Yikes. A lot wrong with this one. Looked decent once poured, hazy amber without much of a head. Small ring of white foam, nice lace. Aroma was malty, caramel dominated, maybe some fruit in there, not much hop. Could be a yeast presence, fruity like esters. Flavors were lightly sweet and fruity. Mouthfeel super thin and watery. Nothing good about this one.

On tap with Jeff at Bridgeport. Pours red with off-white foam. Smells sweet. Tastes sweet with a light caramel and enough bitterness to keep me interested. Seems like a sweet ESB. Itís one of the better double reds Iíve had (not that that says much...)

12 oz bottle pours and amber/red color with a nice tan head. Aromas of malt, light floral. Medium mouthfeel, but the flavors donít mix as well asi they could. A little disappointing

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I picked up as part of a M&M 6pk from Woodmanís in Sun Prairie late summer 2012.
Pours a reddish/orange color with a slight off-white head. Scent is mild with malts and slight hint of hops. Taste is bold with wheat, rye, and hops. After taste is slightly crisp and bitter. Drinks smooth but has a good grain taste that is hard to pass up. Made quite well!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amber pour, white head. Aromas of candied grapefruit, wet wood and spice. Medium bodied, slightly spicy with wood and and grapefruit flavours. Also some perfumey/floral hops. I like the hop/malt profile.
