COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our Panama Limited Red is a hoppy, robust yet smooth amber ale brewed with nine different malts and four types of hops. With its deep amber color and rich malty body, our Panama Limited Red will smoothly transport you into the wonderful world of complex and flavorful handcrafted beers. Bottled Panama Red was a one off project and was brewed under contract. The bottled product IS NOT representive of our house brewed beer which is much hoppier and by far more malty.

This marked the transition from the session beers to the stronger styles. Some people seem to like it. To me it was not a bad example of the style but at the same time I was not that impressed with it. It may be that I am not a big fan of amber ales in general but whatever the reason, this is an average beer at best.

Aroma / Appearance - The caramel body gave off the scent of hopped peanut butter and pumpkin pie. It was a bit of a change from what I usually expect from a red ale as it reminded me more of a west coast style ale than a midwestern beer. Perhaps given that everything so far had a trace amount of hops I should not have been too surprised.

Flavor / Palate - The introduction is hopped up caramel, apple pie and lemons. The bitterness is strong but not overwhelming. A chewy mouthfeel releases peach cobbler and graham crackers at the end before washing away in a resiny aftertaste. It was enojyable but not enough to blow me away. I might take a pint if offered but given the other options on tap would probably not choose this one again.

On tap (I swear I had rated this, guess not): It has a red tint (duh) with a small head and some lace. The aroma has a nice citric hop nose with some grassy undertones along with caramel and biscuity malt additions. A sharp quick bitter bite greets the drinker and is supported by loose malts and a hint of clove spice. I found a note of dusty yeast and mineral upon the finish. The mouth feel is sharp and dry yet it is softly carbonated. West Coast Amber Ale indeed! Almost IPA with the hop characteristic, more than I expected, very nice.

Pours a clear amber color with a thin offwhite head. Good aroma of citrusy hops with caramel. Good flavor of citrusy hops and caramel with a strong, lasting, bitter finish. The body is light with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Good stuff.

Sampler flight at Flossmoor Station. Dark red pour with a semi-thick long-lasting head. Hoppy on nose and in flavor, nice blend of hops and malts. Simple. I liked it.

Had this on draught at the brewpub in Flossmoor, Illinois. Dark amber pour. Very hoppy throughout, with a pronounced hop and roses in the nose. Hoppy and bitter and that’s about it, nothing complex about this one.

UPDATED: FEB 14, 2007 Had this beer on tap and wasn’t to bad for my first flossmoor beer. poured an amber body with a small cream head, a little hoppy nose with a little citrus and toffee. The flavor was suprising to me with the amount of hops that i tasted different than any other red ale i had but definetly good, also has a nice malt taste as well.Very nice a must try bought a growler while i was there of this ale.

(draught at resaurant) Deep amber/red. Small cream head. Not a lot of aroma - some malt. Flavor is sweetish comples malt with a solid hops kick in the finish. Quite hoppy for an amber ale.
