The winner of Baltimore Magazine’s “Best Beer in Baltimore 1998.” We’d like to thank the smooth, roasted malt flavor. The mild hop presence. The little people.

aroma was full of malty sweetness with a bit of roasted presense in the backround. beer was dark amber, just a shade less than the brown ale, pretty dark amber ale. flavor was malty, and roasty with just enough hops for balance. I would have liked a little something from the hops though, some spiceiness to go with the sweetness would have been nice. medium palate. an okay beer.

NicerInPerson (337) - North of Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 4, 2007
The aroma consisted of a light toast with a slight bit of chocolate malt, but otherwise not much there. The beer was brownish red with a creamy long lasting head which laced the glass. The flavor was light chocolate malt coupled with caramel and a bit of a toasty presence. The bittering emerged in the dry finish but was restrained elsewhere. The body was medium light with a moderate level of carbonation. A nice beer but a bit boring.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 25, 2007
Tap @ Arundel Mills: Poured a clear mahogany color with a small persistent off-white head. The aroma was malty with a mild fruity character. The malty flavor had notes of toffee and nuts. The flavor started with a mild fruitiness and finished malty with a hint of chocolate. Light bitterness on the finish which was the first time the hops came through. Semi-dry with a light-medium body.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - JAN 18, 2007
Draft, Bowie. Pours a dark, rust-colored appearance; off-white head with decent lacing. Light aroma, predominantly candy sugar. Light-to-medium mouthfeel: chewy malts, light citrus; basic, drinkable amber ale. Mildly dry finish, less dry and crisp than one would expect.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 8, 2007
Draft at Arundel Mills location Not much aroma. Pours dark amber with a faint off white head. Flavor of toasted malt and caramel, nicely balanced by spicy hops. A simple beer designed to pair with food.

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2007 On tap @ Arundel Mills-Poured a clear amber color w/a very slight head. Had some lacing, not a lot. Kind of a "standard" amber. Roasted malt up front w/a somewhat bitter finish. Nothing wrong w/it, but there are a lot better examples of this style out there. Average brew.

Rerate-Was here again this Christmas & found this brew much more enjoyable this time, don’t know if it was them of me. Seemd much fresher w/a crisper malt flavor. Definite sesson Ale.

biggcb (464) - Harleysville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2006
Tap @ Bowie. Amber color with a moderate head. Aroma is fairly split between malt and hops. Somewhat sweet, but relatively balanced. Easy drinking. Average and unoffensive.

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - DEC 9, 2006
Deep brown-red and clear. Can’t smell it over the cigarettes at the bar, but it’s lightly sweet-malty. Briny , dry, lightly astringent. A soapy flavor in the back of the palate which makes me wonder if the glass wasn’t washed well. Not very bitter. medium body. Better fizz than the others here.

I really liked this beer. It was Rock Bottom’s Racoon Red, without as much hop presense. It wasn’t their best, but a very strong/solid offering.
