2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hey, cool. a red unexpected ale but its really kind of pale yellow from the looks. Free 6 oz sample at the Fox & Hound in North Pgh. Rather interesting, nice mild hop bite. Fun, some unexpected hay. Easy to enjoy, likable and not over the top. Qyuite interesting, glad to have had the chance to taste this. Different yet enjoyable. Good finish which is not too bitter yet bitter enough to let you know it is a little hoppy. Leaning away from pale lager fer sure.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Had this at Fox and Hound in, i think, Arlington Heights. I’m not sure whether I’m surprised or not that this is an A-B product. I mean, it sucked, but not as bad as most A-B beers. Maybe this is what Bud’s "American Ale" is like? It’s not good. It’s thin, watery, metallic. Just a very plain, boring ale if you ask me. Makes something like fat tire seem amazing.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap at the Fox and Hound in Philly. Orange tint with virtually no head. Very light aroma of malts, but nothing else. Taste was very bland but had a weird aftertaste - I think cinnamon. Very boring beer.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Draft at Fox and Hound near Wake Forrest. Not awful, but very far from being a good amber. Pours a clear topaz with fair off-white head. Sweet malt aroma was not offensive. Malty and bitterness in the flavor and a bit earthy. Astringent, Metallic, and cloying in the finish. Try it only to gain a rating.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copper-red color with a white head. Smells of light malt, toffee and carbonated seltzer water. Taste is wet malt, caramel, toffee, very typical amber flavors here with the exception of trace cinnamon. Ending is dry, lemony hops fade and crackle the tongue. White lattice lacing all over the glass is impressive. Sampled on draught at Bailey’s Pub in Arlington, VA.
