3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a very nice red. Pours a light amber with red hues. The aroma is mostly sweet malt with caramel and a hint of honey. The flavor is malty sweet with the caramel and a nice hop balance, just enough to temper the sweetness. Finishes dry and crisp.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at GTMW ’11. A bright copper color with pleasant grainy nose. Has a bready taste and gentle bitterness. Full-flavored but high gulping potential.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours copper in color with a tight soapy off white head that dissipates to a thin film and noticeable lacing. Aroma sweet malt like cream and dry vanilla. Taste is more sweet malty flavors with some vanilla and muted sugar and grain that finishes faintly bitter. Palate is thin to medium with a sticky dry chalky finish. Very easy drinking brew that is quite nice!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Served at a cool temperatue with a nice sized, cream colored, foamy, slightly frothy head that settles down and plenty of lace. Color is a clear, honey amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is mild - malt, hints toffee, fruit, and hop. Flavor’s like nose and just about as mild with good carbonic tang to balance the bitter and sweet. Body and carbonation are good. Finish is like flavor, of average length, and easy drinking. Not bad overall for a basic, malty amber.

Bottle. Pours a darker copper color with small white head and very faint lacing. Aromas of bread and sweet caramel. Taste is similar; caramel, yeast, and a bit hops. Medium bodied with a dry finish. Nothing spectacular here.

Tastes very light. Just not my cup of tea being an IPA/Double IPA kind of guy but certainly was not bad.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a deep golden color with a small white froth. Aroma is blandly malty sweet caramel and some bready grain notes. A bit of a flora hoppiness. Flavor starts sweet and floral, picking up some of the caramel and toffee notes. Finishes sweet and cloyingly candy sweet. Medium body and a crisp carbonation. Bleh

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep amber color with a thin white head .Aroma is overall very light with only a light toasted malt presence and some flowery hops. Flavor has a light malty flavor, some honey notes and a very flowery hops presence at the end. Body is light, slightly fizzy with a hint of wateriness toward the end. Overall not too bad for a light brew. Definitely nothing against this brew.
