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.

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 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.

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.

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.

TURDFERGUSON (4024) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 28, 2008
Pours a deep red with a mall white head that fades very fast. Aroma is seriously lacking here. A bit of malt. Flavor is malty and slightly bitter, but lacking any sort of distinction. Not a very good amber at all.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of Naka. Pours a dark, ruby red with a small, caramel-beige, foamy head. Nose is sweet caramel with a hint of chocolate and roast. Notes of hop in the nose, but not very present. Taste is lots of caramel and toffee, a touch of roast that mixes with some hope bitterness, but no real hop flavor. Watery taste to it. Thin and lacking, but it sticks to the back of the throat. A weird, chocolaty roast flavor. Thereís a lot there, just not in the right order/quantities. This is a perfect example of when "complex" is too much.
