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.

Tmoney99 (11809) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2007
Bottle from Belmont Party. Poured a reddish brown color with a moderate fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate tart citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 26, 2007
12oz bottle. Aroma: Deep caramel and sweet maltiness, dark fruits and chocolate. Appearance: Deep red in color and clear. Khaki head was medium and frothy with fair retention. Not much lacing. Flavor: Lots of caramel and sweet maltiness. Raisins and plums, chocolate and cola. Light bitterness. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: Kind of like a scottish ale meets an Amber. I liked the caramel flavors here, but the beer overall could have used some more ’oomph’.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 19, 2007
Bottle sampled. Pours ruby with a decent size off-white head. Aroma of hops, caramel, and slight fruitiness. The flavor is citrus, fruit, caramel, and finishes bitter and dry. Thin body, decent brew.

It is malty and it is red - retro, I’m not sure but whatever. This was definitely drinkable but nothing to write home about. I’d say average (but with a pretty cool label).

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - MAY 22, 2007
Clear mahogany body with a small beige head. Aroma is caramel and burnt toffee with grassy hops and a hint of citrus. Taste features sweetish scorched malts, citrusy orange and grassy hops. A note of soy sauce jumps into the finish. Interesting, and somewhat engaging, but jumbled.

wingman333 (333) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - MAY 20, 2007
12 oz. bottle. The only thing retro about it is that is reminded me of Killian’s which I drank some years back. If you like that you will like this. This was to me a very one-dimensional brew.

omhper (20921) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 6, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2007 Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Clear deep ruby, rich head. Crystal malt aroma with some cherries and shampoo. Sweet with medium bodied and clean malt profile. Some spicy oraengey hops, notes of rye bread. Finishes with medium bitterness. A competent solid straight forward amber ale.
