(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.

12 oz. bottle via trade with jasonmech77 - Cool bottle label. Pours a deep copper color with a one finger thick light tan head. Nice lacing. Has a nice toasted caramel malt aroma. Has a sweet caramel malt flavor. Medium body. No off flavors. Thought this was a pretty good Red. Thanks Jason.

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

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - MAY 7, 2007
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.

jason (1819) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2007
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.

12oz bottle acquired in trade with doclock. Opened to a very loud pssst and proceeded to pour all head. Poured a medium orangish color. Aromas of caramel and roasted nuts. Tastes of the same. Thin body. I found this one to be really boring.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 9, 2007
Nice polished-copper body with a modest, filmy off-white head. Notable edge of roasted barley lends a coffee quality to the aroma; also has some toffee and light hop spice underneath. Flavor is grainy and lightly astringent with some sweetness that reminds me of cola syrup. Chalky quality on the palate. Overall, this is not to my liking.

I didn’t recall seeing this on anybodies favorite list so I have passed over it for about 3 months at the beer store. A malty red ale it says. Has a nice picture of americas finest historic prop fighter on it. After two lighter lager beers I’m looking for something with a little kick in it, and I found it. Pours impressively dark brown in my steeler stein. Has a light alabaster head that just sits there. Has a very slight aroma of roastyness to it. Taste has a good dose of hoppy or maltness to it. I can’t really see any red in the color. It says that they are trying to please their harsh critics and if their harsher critics like astringent bitterness it is getting there. Not as hard hitting as an imperial stout but has some qualities of an IPA or Dunler Bock. Since I don’t particularly care for beer that is bitter and lingering, this is not one of my favorites. Finish is impressing and lasts for a while; you get your moneys worth on the lastingness. On par with carlow ohara but not as good as smithwicks. Im betting this is +5% alky.
