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.

Poured a reddish amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, caramel malts, toast, toffee, and a bit of nuts. Taste of grapefruit, citrus fruits, woody hops, pine, and light tobacco.

Clear amber color. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is somewhat sweet fruity malts, grapefruity and floral hops. A medium bodied pale ale. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are grapefruity and floral. Nicely balanced Pale Ale, a touch on the sweet side. But a nice APA. All the bad stuff I said about the Micro Beer of the Month Club last month I take back, as long as they keep shipping beers like this and the Oak Barrel Aged Stout. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

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.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2009
Tap at Dullas airport. Clear amber-red with small white head and splotchy lacing. Nice sprucey hops in aroma. Nice crispness. Finishes clean. Is herbal, dry, and piney with a nice malt backbone. Balanced and drinkable.

Draught @ Brewery: No scent. No dry finish. Brown color. Small diminishing head. Not dry enough. Not red. Creamy.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4918) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2006 I like to Oak Barrel Stout from this company but this was my first time trying anything else of theirs. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer pours a chestnut color with a small tan head. The aroma is nut, molasses and hops. The flavor is hoppy with your typical red ale sour malt and nut presence. Not bad.

EithCubes (4895) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 2, 2007
Bottle. Above-avg strength citrus and resin aroma. Expecting oiliness. Amber pour with a wee little beige head that quickly faded into nothingness. Medium-light watery body with a mf somewhere between prickly and smooth. Mild and inconspicuous. Light rubbery bitterness, a touch of woodiness, and little else. Slightly grainy. Just not enough flavor for a potentially explosive style.

Pailhead (4812) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAR 23, 2005
Bottle: Cookie and light hop aroma. Pours a transparent amber with a nice off-white head with good retention. Malty up front with a good amount of caramel. Finishes bitter and then the caramel sneaks back into the aftertaste. Well balanced APA.

UPDATED: JUL 5, 2003 This is a re-rating from a beer I had on Tap at Hero's in Manassas, Virginia. I bought this in a bottle from Whole Foods in Vienna, Virginia. The colour is a little odd, darker amber and a nice white head which leaves decent lacing behing on the glasss. The aroma is almost purely hops, but that is a very good thing! The taste is pretty balanced, although a bit vinegary--even from the bottle. Good hoppyness balanced with adequate maltiness combined with decent sweetness. A pretty good pale ale, the first time I had it, it wasn't good at all...but this time in the bottle, I'm pleasantly impressed. One to pick up if you are in Washington or Virginia!

Bottle. Light copper color. Fruits, caramel, and nice and hoppy. Great pale ale.
