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.

raymow (958) - Bensalem, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 1, 2007
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).

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.

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 (20568) - 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.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2007
Good looking beer, a deep red with a tint of orange and a tall, creamy beige head. The aroma is sweet and malty, has a touch of toast, apples, and berries. The flavor is toasty and sweet, fruity with a light earthy bitterness to balance it out. Good session stuff.

Hangover (1086) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - APR 8, 2007
Nice dark red color but has a very thin, filmy head. Aroma is of wine/grape and some woodsey malts. Sugary taste, red-wine towards the finish. Finish is bitter but not harsh and has a bit of piney hop resinous. Pretty good.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - APR 7, 2007
Bottle. Pours a bronzen ruby with thin beige head. The aroma is light toast, a dark sweet note, berries, and a faint note of fudge. The taste is much more like fudge, some nutty notes, toast in the finish. Quite interesting.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - APR 5, 2007
Deep copper color with a medium head. Head dissipates quickly, leaving spare lacing. Aroma of caramel and brown sugar and earth. Mostly sweet. Medium-light body. Fairly dry finish.
