3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Jamaica Red, African Amber, Panama Red...all right, enough of this silliness. Those places don't brew great beer so cut it out!! Yellow-amber. Huge dry-hop aroma - citrus, cedar. Long, woody, bitter palate. Big hops loaded onto hops. Faint toasty malts (at Flossmoor...no way!) but really one-dimensional.

clear amber, fine beige head, nice lace, sweet caramel malt aroma with a nice vienna and fresh yeasty biscuit character, thin body, overly bittered malt flavor, the caramel is nice but the thin body and agressive astrengent bitterness kills it,

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Lovely, crystal clear ruby brew. Light brown creamy head with great lacing.
The aroma is malty and floral. Very crisp and clean.
The flavor is perfectly balanced with blasts of caramel and butterscotch up front. Moderately bitter and tangy on the backside.
Full-bodied with a syrupy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Medium-length, bitter, dry finish. Very close to being a world-class brew!
