COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A striking ruby hue and spicy floral nose punctuate the pleasant sweetness of this brew. Crystal malt coalesces with the earthy flavor of Willamette hops. A hauntingly beautiful combination.

mhelgason (495) - Salem, Oregon, USA - APR 13, 2008
bottle. average fizzy head (mostly dissapating) into semi-sparkling murky brown body. good lacing. aromas of moderate hops (resin) and malts (caramel). flavor is moderately bitter throughout. dry texture. long finish duration. above average carbonation. Actually not bad amber.

CelticBrew (912) - The Crystal Coast, North Carolina, USA - APR 11, 2008
Poured from 12 oz bottle, a deep amber, light brown foamy head. Aroma of some hops, malts and the like. Flavour was of a typical amber beer, nothing special here other than an easy drinking brew. Rather boring and unremarkable. Spend your hard earn green on something else.

Brewbie (475) - New York, USA - APR 9, 2008
12 oz bottle. amber, small head that quickly disappears. different taste at first sip, the hops and sweetness mixing well, with a nice hoppy finish

Smells strongly of dark chocolate roasted malts. Thick and chocolately, a little sweet. Tasty

tap at the brewpub - Pours red (duh) with a thin, light tan head. It has an aroma thatís mostly lightly roasted caramel malt. The flavor is mainly caramel malt as well though it has a decent hops bite. Still, the commercial description saying this is their "hoppiest specialty ale" is kind of puzzling. The hops isnít strong. Anyway, itís a very straightforward red and quite quaffable.

Bottle. Dark red body, not much nose, tan head. Malty, moderately sweet, some hop character. Drinkable.

ross (2139) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - APR 4, 2008
Bottle from Total Wine. Pours out a dark red color with a thick brownish colored head on it. Smell is full of malts and perhaps even a slight touch of coffee. I did like the smell alot. Taste was smooth and easy to drink, very rich and sweet but not overly sweet. Something I would drink again, this would go over nice with people who donít really like good beer yet.

beerheart (237) - Erie, Colorado, USA - MAR 19, 2008
This poured a nice amber red color with almost no head. Aroma is sweet with some roasted malt. Thin body. More bitter than most ambers Iíve tried. Nice hop bitterness. Caramel notes. Finished with a thin watery and metallic taste.

Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2008
A deep red brown color. Small beige head that disappears quickly. A sweet floral hop nose with some malty cotton candy. Chocolately caramel flavor with some metallic notes. Just a touch of bitter at the end. Pretty average body.
