3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
THOUGHTS: A little harsh, actually. It didn’t do a great job disguising the alcohol content. I prefer more malty red ales.
TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, dark, slightly reddish, amber with a small, off-white head that mostly diminished and left virtually no lacing. The aroma contained moderate to heavy; grain and caramel malts; hints of chocolate; and moderate perfume, pine, citrus and earth hops. The initial flavor was moderately sweet and lightly bitter; while the finish was heavily sweet and moderate to heavily bitter with a long duration. There was caramel malt, lemon hops, grain, pine hops, perfume hops and rye. The medium body was a little syrupy and then very dry with fizzy carbonation and a light to moderately alcoholic finish.

bottle @ Vino Bellissimo / Lima OH --- Clear dark amber, 1" tan head, swirls and streaks of lace. Taste is caramel malt that grows fuller and richer in the palate, adding mild hops on the swallow, all parts joining on a solid lingering finish. Highly recommended.

Very hopped up beer. It is really red and fun to drink in the winter and fall. A good stock ale with a great label.

Bottle. Slightly clouded red color with tall offwhite head. Aroma is fruits and caramel. Nice bitterness up front with hints of citrus and pine. The bitterness is well balanced by the fruity sweetness of the malts. Medium body and carbonation with a crisp finish. I really like this one!

On tap in the Pittsburgh airport, Bar Symon. I smell wood smoke, toffee, black pepper. Clear orange brown with moderate khaki head. Flavors of toasted grain, resin, peaches, alcohol. My mouth likes it a lot. Fine balance of malt complexity with hop edge.

Bottle to pint glass. Pour is deep copper with an off white head. The aroma is hoppy with some red apples. The taste is a well balanced hop and fruit combo. Not citrus but other fruits. The finish is moderately carbonated and easy. Good beer.
