Aroma is of caramel with a little grassy citrus in there. Pours a clear red amber color with decent white head. The taste is mostly balanced piney bitterness up front with some smooth sweetness on the end. It was light to medium bodied. Nothing really stood out to make it great but overall a good and smooth red ale.

Watery chemical tasting bland amber ale. Could do with more body, character and bitterness.

BrownALEx (300) - Portland, Michigan, USA - FEB 21, 2015
Caramel and malt dominant the nose. Dark amber pour with a gigantic head. Seems a little over carbonated. Taste is more caramel with some slight hop bitterness. Palate seems a little light for the color. Overall, a good amber but not one to seek out.

Very good 'drinking beer'. Nicely red/ golden. Nice fruitiness up front (mostly crisp apple) but finished with a perfect caramel. The starting and finishing flavours go so well together, it draws you in for another sip as the caramel lingers beautifully. This is an anytime beer.

Fukito (845) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - DEC 25, 2014
Solid Amber color with golden hues and a medium white head. Ruinous piney aroma with citric notes. Bittersweet flavor with caramel and piney notes with a gentle bitter sweet aftertaste. Medium to light palate

esox (1156) - Oulu, FINLAND - DEC 5, 2014
Bottled. Tan head is thin and slightly lacy. Deep amber color. Creamy caramel aroma with light toasted malts, some dried apricot, hint of raisins. Hops are slightly floral and resiny, a hint of grass. Round caramel flavor but not sweet, finish is surprisingly toasty, some molasses. Round bitterness, lingering finish. Medium body, smooth and rounded caramel malty texture.

OK Amber with respectable hop bitterness. Absolutely nothing special. Clear Amber color. Average aroma and body.

jandd1983 (2893) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - OCT 22, 2014
On tap at the brewpub. It poured a reddish/amber color with a small white head. The aroma was of toasted malts, grassy hops and some toffee. The taste was similar to the aroma with some hoppiness. Decent.

arkurzynski (1632) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 21, 2014
Reddish amber pour. Nose of herbal citrus and pine with big toasted malt and mild dark fruit/raisin. Flavor is herbal pine with more toast, raisin, and mild candied malt. Lingering citrus rind and toast.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2014 Excellent with a well balanced flavour. Lovely colour with lasting after strength and good on palate aftertaste. Caramel aroma.
