Just found an old rating I had for this circa Sept 2008: Pours a deep dark copper mahogany with a thin-lacing off-white head. Aroma of toasty dark caramel and toffee maltiness with some grainy character and noble hops. Body starts with average fullness and effervescent carbonation with some lightly sweet toasty maltiness and a drier earthy bittering hop presence before a crisp bittersweet finish. An ok red ale, but could use a more assertive hop character.

Thanks to l1br4r14n for sharing his growler from the brewery. Pours a nice deep copper color with a thin off white head. aroma was some sweet malt a little bit of fig and caramel. Flavor was fairly tame. some nice malt and dark fruit notes. Mouthfeel was a little thin, but a nice passable amber.

Growler from the brewery. Pours reddish-brown with a decent tan head. Sweet caramel malt flavors, some dark fruit and toffee along with just noticeable hop flavors. An okay sessioner, but not my first choice.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - MAR 6, 2009
Draught at the brewery. Red-amber color. Light caramel and tea aroma. Caramel and lightly roasted malt, some tea, and very light hops. I’m not the biggest on lightly hopped reds, and this didn’t make much of an impact among the range, though it wouldn’t be a bad call for having a couple pints.

DocHop (278) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - FEB 9, 2009
Pours a clear red,, copper with a small beige head. Light aroma of caramel that’s a little roasted. Flavor is also mildly sweet with a little caramel, a little oak, and a slightly smokey finish.

Mellow, kind to you. Good stuff for session, but lacking in much flavor.

Ungstrup (29332) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 1, 2006
A hazy red beer with no head. The aroma is sweet with light notes of hops and caramel. The flavor is dry toffeeish, and leads to a subdued hoppy end. Forgetable.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - OCT 3, 2006
Draught @ Brewpub Amber, ruby color. Light head and lacing. Nose of light toffee and caramel, some light hops. Flavor is semi-sweet. Not that fun or noteworthy. I’m moving on...
