(On tap at Top of the Falls in Niagara Falls, NY) Aviator Red is a solid, slightly sparkling red ale with a small, soft off-white head that is fully diminishing. The aroma is of fresh wooden hops, some resin, a bit of caramel malt and peppery alcohol. It is soft and smooth in the mouth; medium bodied and a bit flat. It is well bittered with a wooden resin flavor. The malt is tart and a bit sour. It is a slightest touch sweet when it first touches the tongue. Itís pretty well balances but perhaps a bit raw. It leaves the mouth with a chalky feeling. I thought perhaps this was a Scotch ale, but with more hop presence than I would expect from one of those. I guess this is what an Irish ale is like-- the first one Iíve reviewed, I believe. Not bad at all.

Bottle. Pours a murky brown with a small off white head. The smell is very fruity although I was unable to determine which fruits. The palate is soft and refreshing. The taste is similar to the aroma, fruity with a touch of spice, nutmeg.

(draft) carmel and mollases is the prominent aroma and flavor. generous malt makes for a smooth drink. a decent red but nothing that will blow your socks off.

On tap @ Coles Buffalo NY. Decent locally made brew. Tries to appeal to the masses rather than the knowing. Can have one here & there

UPDATED: MAR 10, 2008 bottle- want to support this beer, being from the area, but it really is not my style. Fairly caramel like malt flavor, not much hop presence or aroma. Not that memorable. draft rerate- 3-10-08- more enjoyable from the tap as the roasted/toasty flavors really come out. Not as bad as originally thought.

Bottle. Cloudy amber body with very thin head. Aroma is of malt, caramel. Flavor is sweetened by the malt and a big caramel flavor. Very metallic taste. I was in a mood for a lighter beer on a warm day but this one feel short despite my thirst.
