Often referred to as Burning River Pale Ale’s big brother, this stock ale is remarkably balanced for such a highly hopped beer. A rich deep blood red color makes this beer scary enough to be served every Halloween and a few other times of the year.

Bottle 12oz thanks to Seth at BP-Clough in Cincy. Poured a dark amber with large off-white head. Good aroma of brown sugar. Medium to full body. Complex flavor of hops and malt with a small bitter finish. Another very good brew from GREAT LAKES.

omhper (23713) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 14, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2005 Bottled. Amber colour. Caramel aroma. Sweet with dense mouthfeel. Intense grapefruity hoppiness over a lovely malt character and a lingering very bitter finish. Like with almost every Great Lakes beer this is perfect quality.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - JUN 10, 2005
Poured a mostly clear dark amber color with a reddish tint and a medium off-white head. Sweet thick aroma. Fruity with notes of brown sugar. Sweet malty flavor mildly acidic with a bitter middle through the long dry finish. Full body is soft and silky. Nice and tasty with the alcohol completely hidden.

Malty sweet aroma. Maltiness caries well throughout providing just enugh backbane for the high bitterness. A little harsh but enjoyable.

Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - APR 14, 2005
Dark orange with a foamy tan head. Full sweet hoppy and caramelly aroma. Flavor is sweet at first with a bitter end. Fruity, hoppy and candied. Sharp but nice.

A hazy amber beer with a disappearing orange head. The aroma is sweet, very hoppy, with notes of caramel. The flavor is very sweet with notes of alcohol, caramel and a lovely bitter dry end.

Bottled: Orange coloured. Hazy. Light brown coloured. Spiced, light fruity and hoppy aroma. Flavour is hoppy and fruity with some nice malty accents. Is very bitter in the end. Quite delicious beer. Thanks to BBB63 for this.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 15, 2005
Reddish amber body. Nice off-white head. Sweet fruity hops in the aroma that remind me of fall. Maybe its SNCA. Slightly spicy component in there as well. More tropical fruity sweet hops in the taste. Quite balanced, but maybe too sweet? There is some underlying hop complexity, but its a little too simple.

BeerandBlues2 (12191) - Escondido, California, USA - MAR 8, 2005
Thanks to jsquire for this brew. Pours a cloudy amber to copper with an average light brown frothy head. Good patchy lined lacing. Aroma is heavily malty with caramel and faibt yeast, kind of like buttered toast. Hoppy initial flavor with warming caramel malts and finishes with a lingering spicy hoppiness. Warm and full-bodied thick palate, almost syrupy.

balke13 (156) - MIssoula, Montana, USA - MAR 8, 2005
Cloudy light brown with orange tints and a thin off white head. Carmel, sweet malt, and hops permeate from the glass...smokey sweet malt and well balanced hop finish...not quite as "strong" as I had anticipated but decent nontheless.
