travita (4150) - Frisco, Texas, USA - OCT 15, 2014
Tap at the brewpub. The look is reddish in color, a beige colored head, and a slight haze. The smell is toast, burnt, malt, ash, and ok. The taste is fruit, caramel, toast, and grain.

Pailhead (5061) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 18, 2014
On tap: The aroma consists of light fruit, caramel, and toasted nuts. It’s a transparent dark amber with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is some hints webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light-moderate caramel and light fruit. The finish has light toasty notes with faint roasted nuts. It’s light bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty standard Amber Ale.

DesertDevil (542) - Arizona, USA - JUN 11, 2014
Pint at the brewery. Mild roasted malt and slight baked apples highlight the moderate aroma with some caramel. Pours a nice semi-hazy deep auburn with a cream-colored head. A sweet nutty tone is the prominent flavor early with a moderate chewy toffee note, mild whole-grain toast, and a medium earthy hoppiness. Medium body, spiced long finish. Solid brew.

Draft - Toasted malts and caramel. Clear amber with a beige head. Just like it smells with a sweetness in the finish.

FlacoAlto (3810) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Arrives from the tap with a thinish, tan colored head that quickly disappears. The beer is a deep red color that is a bit hazy when held up to the light and shows a gold tinged red / amber hue. The aroma smells like an Irish red; lowish hop character with a malt focus that leans towards caramel, touches of toffee, a bit of light caramelized fruitiness, as well as a light caramelized nutty note.

Lightly sweet up front, it gets more sweet with fruit and caramelized notes becoming more prominent as it slides across the tongue. Touches of sweet tea, caramelized crystal malt, light nutty notes, and a hint of toasted whole grain character. The hop character is quite light; this has a touch of bitterness to it, but barely there, with the sweet, caramelized malt dominating the hop / malt balance, and there is perhaps a hint of herbal hop character. The body has a nice chewiness to it for a beer of this strength.

Not bad, actually a fairly good take on the style. I am personally not really a huge fan of the style, but if you are then this is a well made one that you should try.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - NOV 4, 2013
(Draught) Pours a hazy amber-brown body with a medium cream head. Aroma of caramel, brown sugar, and raisins. Flavor of caramel, light roasted grain, earthiness, some bread, and raisins with a moderately dry finish.

kcorum10 (325) - Arizona, USA - JUL 30, 2013
Pours a copper/amber color with thin off white head. Aromas of of English hops and the flavor of a traditional Irish red.

Tmoney99 (11059) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 12, 2013
Tap sample. Poured reddish amber with an average frothy off-white head that lasted and produced excellent lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet bitters flavor with a sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer would go well with spicy pizza.

Tap at the brewery. Rating #9. Nice amber/red color and a little dark with those colors with an off white head. Nice maltiness too it with a very light hop presence. Good stuff. (2773)
