Not much aroma. Maybe a little hoppy aroma. Flavor is pretty bland. Color is light and cloudy. Finish is gloppy and the best part. Definitely drinkable but not much to it.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Mad Med Robinson. Pretty nasty stuff. Drinkable, but thatís it. Aroma was weak. Light toast and beer smell. Pour was actually nowhere near red. It was a medium gold with no bubbles or head. Taste was flat. Uncoarbonated and not much flavor. There was roasted malt notes that were weak and finished as quick as they started. Blah.

This was a decent Red Ale. Easy to drink, tasty, but nothing memorable or exceptional.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bomber from Finger Lakes Beverage, shared with Phil, served cold in a highball glass. 26MA12.
App.: Deep amber, chunks of yeast, greenish-yellow head.
Aroma: Nice rich caramel malt, some raw malt, a bit mashy/savoury, somewhat vegetal, not bad.
Palate: Medium body and soft effervescence.
Flav.: Fairly strong caramel, a touch vegetal, heavily malty, decent; dry with limited bitterness and a fairly malty, grainy finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bomber poured into a shaker. Pours orange with about a finger of white head. Aroma is very malt-oriented. Lots of bready caramel with minimal citrus hops. Taste is lightly bitter. Bready citrus hops with some caramel on the back end. Medium bodied with a somewhat slick texture. Lively carbonation and a decently long finish. Overall, better than I though it would be. I would drink this again.

Thanks to 5000 for sending me this bottle, which was poured into an Elysian pint glass. Always glad to try a new beer from Elysian.
The beer pours a hazy, dirty orange color with a white head. The aroma has quite a bit of toffee and biscuit malt, along with a little bit of sugary sweetness and some pine from the hops. The flavor is very similar. The toffee and biscuit malt really come through and add some sweetness. The hops are hidden deep in the background, but I think I can pick out some pine and orange notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
