5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Ruby red color with off white head. Caramel malt and piney hop aroma. Citrus and piney hop flavors balanced by caramel sweetness. Chewy, medium bodied, medium-high carbonation, great mouthfeel. Finishes semi-sweet to dry with a nice hop bitterness to balance out the malty sweetness. Unique, but appropriate style characteristics.

Brewhaha. Poued reddish amber color with a decent off-white head. Decent amount of hoppy aroma which is promising. On the lighter side of medium bodied. Decent balance with a decidedly hoppy finish. Fair to decent beer.

Aroma is malts and light but crisp hops. The flavor is fruit, mildly sweet malts, light citrus and a bitter finish.

Pours a dark red with with a creamy looking white head. Aroma consists of caramel, nuts, some floral hops, and bread. I don’t get a whole lot of bread or the hops in the taste. Instead, I get all caramel and nuts. It is slightly bitter. Nutty aftertaste. This one is lighter in body and slick, with some flatter carbonation. This is very drinkable, but it isn’t terribly exciting.

I got this as part of an M&M 6pk from Binny’s in Downer’s Grove, IL in spring 2012.
It pours a reddish brown color with only a slight head. The scent is mild with bitter hops with some toasted malts lingering behind. The taste is very true to the red ale characteristics. It is very smooth with a good toasted malt flavor that finishes with a good crisp after taste. Very well made indeed.

Bottle from Binnys sample rack. Pours foggy red with thick head...slowly dissipates. Hoppy nose with a edge of bitterness in the initial taste. A little put off by the immense head...like I shook it up...but now getting to the taste...quite good.
