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!

Great look, but more orange than red. Cookie dough aroma with less hops than desired. Good brew. Good slam.

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

Wonderful, sweetish aroma. Sweet, malty, caramel? Hoppy - with a hoppy finish. I like this one quite a bit. I think itís underrated currently.

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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at McNellieís Oklahoma City. Pours a clear orange. Moderat beige head with good retention and moderate lacing. Mild aroma of swet dried fruits and caramel. Flavor is fruity, with a nice dose of tropical fruit hoppiness to go along with the caramel sweetness. Dry finish and a little undercarbonated for my taste. I think itís a better beer than what the overall rating above would indicate. But that said, itís also not a beer Iím going to go out of my way to get again.

Really good, well made but the rye isnt a favorite taste of mine but really adds another layer to this red. The hops shine through and pick it up, gives a little bite and pretty good, I liked it alot

This was surprisingly hoppy but I was slightly disappointed at the quick finish. This is a good beer
