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!

Fatehunter (2249) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Pours a half finger of head on a clear, but dark red colored body. The aroma is a nice wet grain smell. The taste is big on the malt side, though not too sweet. There’s some caramel and mild lemon bitterness. Nicely balanced. The texture is smooth with moderate carbonation. It’s a easy drinking brew.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2014
I never expect anything special from this style (Amber Ale), but I have an open mind (read "loose"), so I’ll give it my fairest shot. It pours a dark amber/brown body with a modest tan head. The aroma is sweet and caramelly with a touch of floral notes. The flavor is more of a dirty caramel/toffee taste, a touch of pome fruit, and a solid earthy bitterness. It won’t be a "go to" beer for me, but it’s an okay drink.

12oz bottle on my daughters patio on 21st May 2016, into a Corsendonk tulip glass. Dark mahogany body, off-white wisp and collar. Malty blend with semi-sweet molasses ruling the nose and taste. Decent, but a bit ’one dimensional’.

12 oz bottle from Tipsy’s. Amber reddish and clear appearance with an average light tan head. Mild aroma of caramel, toffee and light earthy hops. Similar flavor, medium sweetness and light bitterness. Average body, creamy and smooth with soft carbonation, easy to drink. Pretty simple, straight forward amber ale.

Ok. Decent flavor but nothing to write home about. Easy drinking but really uneventful.
