2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a very clear amber color with a small off-white head. Nose is a little bitter, like some hops in there have turned old. I can get a little caramel in there, but itís subtle. Taste is also old and a little bitter. Very little substance, and itís clearly been on the shelf too long.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Looks exactly like their "pale ale" and frankly tastes almost identical, too. Yep, itís amber. Very even keeled and clean, with little to distinguish it in any way whatsoever. Mild caramel malt, sweet finish, light hop kiss. (#5393, 12/1/2013)

Pours cloudy amber with a thin off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a way too sweet red malt flavor with a slightly bitter finish. Not much taste.
