COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich, red ale is made in the American Pale Ale style. It has a strong hop character, medium body, dry finish, and floral hop aroma. We use pale Two-Row Brewer’s malt, Caramel 80 and 40 Lovibond malt, and Munich malt. For bittering and aroma Willamette, Cascade, and Tettnang hops are used in the kettle and as dry hopping in the fermenter.

guzzler67 (1501) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - SEP 19, 2003
Copper colored with a fair sized head. Laid back aroma that was a bit spicy and hoppy. Taste also displayed a dry and spicy style that was offset by some good malt backbone. Malt was also apparant in the finish.

TheBeerGod (5249) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - AUG 11, 2003
Pours a nice brown with a puffy white head. Nose is malt with some hop character and a slightly metallic tinge. The tongue is full of malt and hops and leaves something on the tongue when finishing. Decent beer and worth trying but nothing spectacular.

pilsnerrogge (2497) - Finspång, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2003
Amber coloured, nice head. Hoppy aroma. The flavour is filled with floral hop. Long bitter finish (more hops). I really liked this one.

Cobra (1100) - Banned City, - JUN 30, 2003
12 oz. bottle from the brewpub. Freshness date of March 27, 2003. Poured out a dark amber color, some orange highlights. Aromas mostly of malts, with some hops in the background. As it warms up, the hops aromas become more prevalent. Tastes of malts, with a surprizing hops finish to it. Bitter, but not overdone. This beer is in much better condition than any other beer in a bottle I've had from this brewery. More like a Vienna than a pale ale, in my book at least.

Kinz (3286) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - MAY 24, 2003
Looks decent, sort of a thinnish coppery color. Smells fantastic, burst of fresh hops. Taste, falls a bit short. The hops overwhelm the malt, and are predominately a vegetal flavor, without enough bitterness. A slightly cooked flavor as well. I know this is typical with many Cascade heavy brews, but it just isn't a style that is to my liking. Improved and became more bitter as it warmed to room temperature.

LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - MAR 19, 2003
UPDATED: APR 1, 2003 Re-Rate: Bottle - Color and aroma are very similar to the draft, but much fresher. It is better than the draft, but could use more malt. A little light in the flavor category and has a slight metallic aftertaste. Better, but not much. I just may not be much of a Pale Ale fan given my preference for much more flavorful brews. Old Rating: Draught- Sweet nose and amber color. Light malt, medium bitter and hops. I fear this may have been old beer because it wasn't that good. AR - 4, App - 3, FL - 5, Pal - 3, OV - 12

Very impressive looking copper with white head beer. I also was shocked with incredible fresh, complex aroma. Other brew masters watch and learn! What else do you want? This very aromatic brew also got nice mouthfeel. With time also gives you soft warm feel. Great Brew!

DougShoemaker (3147) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 9, 2003
Very hoppy aroma, copper, with a medium sized vanilla head. Majestic hops flavour, fine bitterness, nice tongue tingle. A really enjoyable beer, seems like an I.P.A. Thank You Radek.

Excellent APA, copper in color, nice lacy soft white head, had a floral & citrus-like aroma, the flavors included some very nice spiciness as well as a dry & bitter mouthfeel, the aftertaste was dry & bitter as well, all-around a very nice pale ale
