COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As our brewmaster dreams of the sun going down over the Pacific, this medium bodied, malty Red Ale was his first brew at the General. Caramel and toffee flavors blend with imported English hops in this extra smooth ale. Consistently one of our top sellers, the brewer spends a lot less time dreaming of sunsets and more time trying to keep this beer flowing!

Draught at TJ’s: Aroma of diacetyl and malt. Poured amber in color with a small, creamy, rocky, off-white/tan head that diminished but lasted throughout as a film on top of the beer, as well as around the edges. Hazy. Slightly sparkling. Flavor is medium sweet. Tastes of malt, caramel, light diacetyl, light strawberry, fruit, light grain, hops, and sugar. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, hops, grain, berry finish is light to medium sweet and dry.

Draft. Pours amber orange with a thin off white head. Sweet malty aroma with light hoppy notes. The flavor is well balanced, with floral hops and sweeter malts. Nice.

Pours a hazy red. Smell of sweet malt but tastes more on the sour side. Not bad but I think the lines might have been funky.

Deep amber color with strong red hues. Average size white head. Mainly malty and caramel aroma with a hint of hops! (shocking for the GLI!) Flavor adds a little spicyness. Dry palate.

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 18, 2009
Deep red-amber colour. The aroma is quite earthy with a light resinous hoppiness. Chewy and malty flavour with crackery malt base under some sweet crystal. Fairly straightforward with a body that is thinner than the sweetness would suggest.

DSG (5731) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 29, 2009
(11/12/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in Lafayette Hill. 5.7%. Hazy red color. Aroma of malt, some toast and caramel. Sweetish caramelly flavor with hints of fruits, and mild earthy hoppy bitterness in the finish. Medium-bodied.

Dorwart (2371) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - JAN 15, 2009
Thin head of very fine bubbles. Excellent carbonation. Weak aroma though with some light malts and a little bit of honey. Color is a slightly hazy dark reddish brown. Strange flavor. Very herbal with some parsley, basil, light malts and some dryness on the platae. Finishes dry and sharp with lingering spicy and herbal notes. A decent brew but not what I expected.

Nate (3710) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2009
On cask at the brewery. Light bready-yeasty aroma, with mild wood-rot or mushroom earthiness. Mild hop character and some roasted grain. Raw buckwheat honey tang. Cloudy dark amber-copper with creamy off-white lacing head. Medium silky body with smooth carbonation. Starts with light woody esters, mild brown sugar and alcohol-ester vapors. Mild floral hop bitterness. Smooth and tasty, this is a really nice presentation of a red ale. Smoooooth.
