Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 9, 2008
Dark red/cherry colour with a pink head. It looks like a kriek...not sure where that colour comes from. Some caramel and wood aromas. It’s sweet, thick on the palate, with caramel, toast and a modest earthy hoppiness and a slightly dry alcoholic finish. An odd duck, but similar in structure to the Sword Swallower.

argo0 (11316) - Washington DC, USA - OCT 24, 2008
(22oz bottle) Large salmon-colored head atop hazy pink-red body. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel/bread, light nut, toffee. Taste is medium sweet, nut, some caramel, earthy, light bread. Light-medium body, light acidity. I found the appearance off-putting, but clearly it was intentional, so to each his own.

bhensonb (10689) - Woodland, California, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Bottle from Wine & Cheese Place in (near) St. Louis, MO. Cherry red with a humongous pink head - now this really is freaky. Red dye #1 in my beer? Damn stuff even smells of red dye - pardon, of maraschino cherry. Near medium body with near creamy carbonation. Flavor is bitter noble hop over very light cherry and pale malt. This is bitter stuff, once your mind comes off the ceiling. Every sip is cherry sweet, but eventually it’s bitter as heck again. Served in a black mug it might pass as a normal and really good beer.

Tmoney99 (10396) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 29, 2008
Bottle from Crown #19. Poured hazyr red color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate fruity citrus aroma. Medium body with a soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met with a very interesting beer.

Lubiere (9728) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 27, 2013
A reddish marzen with a thin pinkish white head. In aroma, sweet tobacco strawberry with signs of oxidation. In aroma, sweet fruity malt with leather, oxidation, not very good. Shared with GRM.

Ratman197 (9436) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - NOV 19, 2008
Bomber poured a clear blood red with a small lasting dark pink head. Aromas of toasted malt, carmel and light fruittiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of toasted malt, earthiness, light carmel and a hint of fruittiness with a smooth malty finish.

BeerandBlues2 (9355) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 1, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear red with an average, pink, fizzy head, somewhat lasting with fair lacing. Aroma is average malt (grain, meal, cereal), average hop (herbs, grass), average yeast (dough) with notes of wet paper and dust. Medium bodied, gritty texture, average carbonation, and a bitter-dry finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness. Blah.

daknole (8851) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 10, 2008
I must say that drinking something this red and not tasting fruit was weird. Pure red pour with a reddish/purplish head. Aroma is very plain and malty. Some hints of hops can be found on the nose, but not a lot. Beer is a little better than some are rating it here. Malty flavor gives way to an odd bitterness at the end.
