3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
355 ml can courtesy of Robeerto # 079. Clear dark red copper, big rocky tan head slowly settles and lasts the whole ride. Aroma of rich dark roasted malt. Sweet dark burnt caramel malt taste, kinda dirty. Soft carbonation, medium bodied, low hopped. Earthy in the finish. Nice enough, but needs more hop balance. LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)

An interesting red. Malty and creamy. Though I prefer a hoppier amber ale,

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Single can purchased from Zyn Liqour on 02/05/2012. Colour: Dark brown and deep red with minimal beige head. Nose: Lots and lots of candy apple malt, dark rye dough, wet earth. Sweet but enticing. Taste: Medium sweet, medium light bitter, light sour. A mix of candied flavours dominant, glaze, candy apple, caramel, marshmallow. Late in the journey some woody bitterness does emerge but mostly this one is a candied treat.

Can. Big head on dark copper. Light malt scent, a little woody perhaps. Flavour is woody and malty. Tastes warm even when served cold. Finish is a little muddy, a mix of wood, root earth and a bit of hops. Maybe a touch of vanilla and a trace of a metallic note. Woody and vanilla but seems a touch thin in taste even with a noticeable palate. Kind of ESB-like.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can at home, shared with Cole, served in a Maudite glass, of course. Pours mahogany, quite clear, with a 1-finger cream-coloured head; spotty lacing. Nose is creamed corn, some cheap maple syrup - like imitation maple syrup, like you get at Dennyís; red candies, and clean malt. A vague roots-and-berries note emerges as the beer warms as well. A last gasp of hops? Who can tell? Flavours of light, fading hops; loads of corny red fruit and malt. Short finish. Inoffensive, but bland.

Pours dark brown with a thin head. Aroma is very malty and sweet. Slight favour of burnt toast caramel and butter not great.

The pour is a dark amber with a thick foamy beige head that dies to a thick spotty cap. Some good carbonation in the glass. The nose is sweet and malted well with toffee and a light hop predominant. Tasting this one, we have a sweet chewy malt in the middle and a lightly bittered hop on the finish. Light carbonation and a nice medium body. Overall, not fantastic, but a good malty session brew.
