Medium to dark copper. Smokey corn aroma. Taste is a bit sour, of stale malts and maple syrup. Can't say much more, just not enjoyable.

This has a dark caramel color and small creamy head; aromas of toasty bread, and a hint of lemon; the flavor is uninspired and weak. Next...

Tap@The Pilsner Room, Portland. Shouldn’t have had this after the Imperial Porter, because i couldn’t taste much. A fairly bland red, sweet, with the standard toffee and nuts, some tangy hops.

A bit different than the average Red ale. A very wierd finish. A bit of a woody flavor. Just weird. A slight hoppy finish. I won’t buy this again

Not really a great summer/spring brew. Pours average, and stays there throughout. Suffers from wateriness and lack of balance from start to finish. Better than the mass market stuff but not by a lot.
