Looks good - they got the head and Lacing right, combined with ruby clear pour. Finishes on bitter side with even a little wooden astringency. Creamy texture. Evident barley crisp here as well. Soft carbonation. Tap at brewpub.

[Cask] Complex nutty and sweet roasty aroma with some red fruit hops. Hazy red-dark brown under a thin film of off-white. Sweet and bitter chocolate and fruit flavour. Pleasant and unexpected roasty note. Medium body, low carbonation, lingering medium bitterness.

On tap @ Clocktower Ottawa. Pours a dark translucent red with a moderate off-white head. Aromas are sweet, grainy malts, some hay and barnyard but some mild hop aroma came through as the beer warmed. Taste surprisingly had considerably more hop presence than the nose would indicate but still plenty of caramel-like malts. While I normally call a bitterness as either citrus or pine-oriented, this one is different, more generic? Smooth and creamy on the palate, plenty of carbonation, and a gentle lingering bitterness. Not too shabby. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Dégustée en fût sur place (Bank St) sous le nom de "Clocktower Red". De couleur ambrée et claire. Nez de grains de malt sucrés et légèrement rôtis, léger de houblon herbeux aux notes florales avec des notes fruitées (agrumes) ainsi qu’avec quelques traces de pain grillé. Moyenne-mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen ainsi qu’une texture légèrement huileuse. Léger goût de levures fruitées (agrumes) avec un goût de pain grillé lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute un goût de grains de malt légèrement sucrés et rôtis puis en finale l’on retrouve une légère amertume asséchante de houblon herbeux aux notes florales. Post-goût moyen et un peu sec, légèrement amer de rôti et de houblon herbeux avec des notes de levures fruitées (zeste d’agrumes). (5 avril 2013)

On tap at the brewpub. Decent red overall: nice pine, burnt caramel, and biscuit balance.

worldbeertaste (1619) - AUSTRIA - DEC 24, 2011
Filtered - Fruity red plum smell with a sweet malt and rasberry element. Smells great. Redish brown with a thin lacy white head. Smooth light thin body with a soft carbonation. Ruby flowery taste. Nut, light bitter roast adn a slight sour finish. Rich Malt roast. Alright but I got board of it.

Originally rated February 2006. Pours a deep copper colour with nice lacing. The nose is very light, with hints of malt and caramel. The taste is floral with grain malt. Nice dry bitterness in the finish, and dry mouthfeel. Great tasting brew that is awesome for session... and with the onion rings I had that night.

Has a very faint barley aroma. Body is a modest dark-copper-brown with little head. Flavour is great rust-like body with a hoppy-ish finish; it reminds you of walking into your favourite pub for a pint, tired after a long day (or a long flight from the arctic, but I digress) and filled with hints of caramel and barley. It’s a very good beer, and there I am, turn that page.
