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!

Ungstrup (34696) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2007
Draft at the brewpub, July 2006. An unclear orange-red beer with no head. The aroma is very light with notes of berries. The flavor is sweet malty with notes of berries, toffee, and hints of alcohol, before the abundant use of bitter hops gives it a long lasting bitter finish with a note of citrus (my guess is Chinook).

(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.

light taste and mouthfeel. Some hops, and malt/caramel. Least interesting of lineup that I tried.

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 24, 2006
Hazy dark straw pour with aroma of hopcit and some fruit. The flavor is of caramel malt at the heart with a firm hopcitric presence and some apricot notes.
Earlier Rating: 12/6/2004 Total Score: 4
On draft at GLI, non-cask version. Deep copper colored with medium head. Aroma of malt, caramel, toffee, dark fruit. Tastes malty, fruity, with finishing notes of nuts, caramel, and toffee. The finish had a refreshing sweetness and crispness that makes this one stand out in my mind. This is not your father’s amber ale.

MartinT (9411) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 13, 2005
The Lure:
Nondescript hoppy subtleties play around the fruity caramel. Simplicity is evoked, as are futures of chugging.

The Festivities:
Pleasant caramel malt roundness agrees with the prevalent fruitiness. Some tartness rakes the back of the palate, which isn’t really necessary for one’s enjoyment of this amber ale.

A recalcitrant student.

JoeMcPhee (9325) - 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.
