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.

Pours out in a clear amber colour with steady low head and medium body. Nose of caramel and hops. Taste of mild hops, light malt, nuts, caramel, flowers and straw. Easy and nice to drink with some light metallic finish.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle, 12oz. An almost clear one, reddish dark golden in color and with a creamy, light beige head leaving lacings. The aroma ismalty with a faint sourish touch. Caramel and a generic fruityness too. Pale malts, caramel, something almost milky sour and a decent bitterness in the flavor. Medium body and pleasant carbonation. Pleasant bitterness in the else malty finish. A forgettable one. 131004

Azand222 (171) - Westminster, Colorado, USA - DEC 15, 2013
bottle pours a dark hazy red, thick foamy head colored light tan. The aroma is floral. The taste is medium bodied, malty and earth. I don’t really get much hop. Overall kind of one dimensional.

RickTheRick (467) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 17, 2013
Une lancinante dentelle se dessine sur les parois du verre au moment du versement de cette bière rousse aux accents cuivrés. Les yeux sont les seuls organes stimulés de façon positive, cette bière étant insipide et sans caractère au nez et en bouche. Le malt et le caramel ressortent, mais ces saveurs tombent à plat très rapidement pour ne laisser qu’un vague souvenir d’une bière générique dont la supposée présence terreuse du houblon Williamette ne se fait aucunement sentir.

radagast83 (5087) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - NOV 15, 2013
12oz bottle. Poured a relatively clear, ruby red color with a medium sized off-white head, lots of carbonation - like a soda. Aroma was light, sweet malts, notes of caramel, some orange zest. Flavor was caramel, toffee, some light earthy hops. Actually pretty tasty.
