Inspired by the legendary "Nain Rouge" (French for Red Dwarf), our signature beer is full in flavor while remaining very balanced and crisp.

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2014 This is a very tasty malt forward beer. My favorite beers are English Strong Ale, Scotch Ale and Scottish Ale. I need to try different Altbiers and my be adding this style as one of my favorites.

On tap at Ford Field. Pours a clear amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has grain and biscuit notes with a crisp grass backing. Flavor is mainly sweet with grain and biscuit with a bit of grass coming out in the finish.

Large head on top of a copper brew. Malty nut flavor with mild hops. I probably should have had this a little colder, but heck, just got to the beach and I couldn’t wait.

Bottle-starts with a foamy head that quickly disperses, but the lacing sticks around. The color is a deep copper and some haze. Aroma was hard to pin down, perhaps some caramel and sugar/molasses, whatever it ends up being, it’s not too strong. Taste is of toffee and some vanilla and a slight background of bread. The finish is bitter, showing some evidence of hops and hits the stomach in a metallic finish. ABC mix pack.

Pours an otherwise dull orange-amber until you hold it up to the light, where it transforms into a slightly hazy yet largely clear flaming orange-crimson. Soft looking beige-eggshell head that descends to a thicker ring and leaves touches of lacing. Nose is faint, "lager-y" with noble hop notes. I almost catch some melon in there. Taste is not very sweet at all, somewhat bitter, almost a touch salty. Somewhat limp palate, softer carb and lighter bodied, with a fairly lengthy tacky hop-bitter finish. I don’t think this is a bad beer, but for me it doesn’t possess any distinct qualities that I’m enjoying a lot, aside from the appearance. No idea on the freshness of the bottle.

11/26/12. 12oz bottle. Clearish red amber pour with a nice enough khaki head, not much lacing. Sweet aroma of bread and a hint of metal. Sweet grainy flavor with bread and toasted caramel. Eh.

PorterPounder (7332) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - 12 oz bottle. Pours a dark copper with a thin but persistent off white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma is sweet with a vanilla twang to it, a bit of caramel. Flavor has some toffee notes, a hint of vanilla, some toffee notes and some baked bread. Mouthfeel is crisp. Not bad at all.

The aroma is dusty with molasses, caramel malt, and grassy hops. The appearance is amber with a foamy head. The taste is like the aroma and very bitter. The palate is average. Overall it’s almost good.

Aurelius (5070) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2012
Musty, slightly smoky, lightly candied malt aroma - sort of reminded me of dubbel. Darkish tea color with a short, dense tan head. Standard US longneck, old world label. Molasses notes up front, very tinny on the lips. Dry, finish commences immediately and lingers, with a tongue-curling bitterness. Sometimes brothy as it warmed. Faint molasses in the finish. ABC, Bull Run. Not a fan.
