Capped 750 from Guerde. What trading is all about! Thanks Andy! Pours almost cherry red with a slight beige head. Aroma is heavy malt - sort of like a rye wee heavy? Full bodied. Boy it is malty. There’s some roast malt, something a little nutty perhaps, and there are rye spice notes. It doesn’t finish exactly dry, but it is pretty close considering how malty it starts.

ABR 2010. I liked this. Tons of malt aroma and grainy, malt flavor on the palate with bread. Just a light hint of roast. The rye gives a very light sourness. Red/brown color.

Tasted this at it’s release party in minneapolis. Thought it was a tasty Red Ale, well balanced and unique, and smoother that the ABV would indicate. surely worth a try.

On tap at Muffuleta's - boy is this nice. Dark ruby pour with a light white head. Malty nose, a heavy red ale that coats your mouth with a nice balance of malt and hops. Really nice! If this was $6 in the stores I would be buying a ton of it!!

Bottle. Dark amber pour, very light carbonation and an aroma of spicy rye and caramel. Flavor is also some spicy caramel, hints of medicinal raisins and dry & a little warming on the finish. At $10 bottle, I’ll probably only pick this one up once; but good nonetheless.

Sweet malt with a rye spice in the background. I’m getting some dark fruit and hop bitterness in the finish. This is really smooth beer.

750 mL bottle. Red brown with a moderate orange tan head. Caramel, grainy alcohol, light rye dryness, malty and light vanilla. Taste is sweet, but fades to an alcohol dryness. Body is heavier with a syrupy feel.

Tap at Northbound Smokehouse. A better than average red ale with a strong amber appearance. Light on the lacing but still strikes a fresh visual. Tastes mild without much aggression. More malt than hops but decently balanced. Aftertaste not its strong point...definitely leads with its best foot forward. A good option from one of the best MN breweries.
