COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A smooth, rich red ale without the bite (5.5% alcohol). This 3-time gold medal winner is a combination of 5 different styles of malts, and several different Yakima Valley hops. The use of ""crystal malt"" in the brewing process imparts a rich caramel flavor. This combination creates a flavor packed red ale like you’ve never had before!

SDalkoholic (2185) - Linda Vista, California, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Bottle from Fresh & Easy: Aroma is faint with caramel malts with a chance of hops. Appeared a dark brownish amber color while a thin patch of foam will flatten out. The flavor is bland with only a minor taste of sweet malt but with a dull bitterness from the hops. Taste like a macro amber recipe.

rosenbergh (7515) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 5, 2014
12 oz bottle. 142402114. From alesbymail.co.uk.
Dark clear reddish brown colour with a small light tan head. Sweet caramel malt, mild darkish hops, sugary sweetness and a hint of bitterness in the aroma. The flavour is sweet malt, mild bitterness, woody dryness and some mild hops. Very typical American Amber Ale.

George999 (168) - Colorado, USA - OCT 1, 2014
Darker than I expected, a bit more roasted flavor, good malt balance, I feel like it needs a little hops.
