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 (30467) - 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...

blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 20, 2006
brewpub: before this i never really got into the red ales. Had a nice red color, and a really nice flavor. But a little too yeasty. Kept it from excelling

BuckNaked (1230) - Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2006
On draught at brewpub: Hazy redish amber colored body with a small, creamy beige head that has nice retention. The aroma is sweet malt, caramel, toasted malt, and hints of dark toasted bread. The taste is earthy caramel, toasted malt, lightly burnt toast, and what seems to be a bit of a house yeast character - earthy, very slightly salty yeast (I like it). Light-medium bodied, medium carbonated.

lamas (1443) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 31, 2005
On tap. A prune-colored body with a thin light-tan head. Aroma is quite estery with plenty of dark berries present. The taste is equally estery. Full of blackberries, raspberries and strawberries. A thin, sweet and sugary body. Just a touch of nutty malts and cocoa along with a dry finish. A little too sweet.

I love the names these guys give their beers. This started off pretty good, the malts were strong and had a chocolate roasty edge to them (reminded me of a mellower St.Rogue Red), but then it started getting a weird sweetness to it, almost chemical in the aftertaste; that kind of ruined it for me.
