3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle poured into a Samuel Smith pint glass.
A: Pours a glowing reddish orange color. Small yeast particles seem to be suspended in the body. The head is a three finger offwhite shade featuring good texture and lacing
S: The aroma features a good mix of caramel malts blended with some grapefruity, piny hops. Nothing particularly out of the ordinary, at all really, but it works well.
T: I swear this almost has a chocolaty flavor to, especially near the front end. The midtaste transitions to burnt toast and caramel, while it finishes with subtle grapefruit peel and black pepper. Quite biscuity in its general flavor, as well.
M: The body itself is creamy smooth until the piny hops dry out the palate some. Otherwise, the finish is mostly a vaguely sweet linger that could use a touch more delicacy. Befitting the style, itís weakly carbonated.
O: This is a decent example in a style that Iím not a huge fan of, with one glorious Hershey chocolate-covered exception. This will satiate me nicely ítil Nugget Nectar arrives in my area, but I doubt Iíd buy a 4 pack of it.

Nice amber-reddish color with a two finger head. Aroma is hoppy, citrusy, slight sweetness. Taste is hoppy and somewhat sweet with a nice bitterness that last. A favorite one.

Muddy red colour. Aroma and taste of hops; lack of the red malt vibe here sadly. Used to live this one, but muchprefer the founders red rye over this guy.

Bottle from Lazy Dog. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin layer of light tan head. Aroma of floral hops and pine. Taste of malt and hops. Like a slight hoppy unsweet tea.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Good looking beer in the glass, creamy burnt amber color with off white thick head. Taste is hard to describe. Hints of citrus, caramel, pine, and malts. Starts off bitter on sip but finishes smooth. I will get this one again

Lovely beer, a sweet caramel maltiness pervades with slick citrusy hops in the finish. Easy to drink, flavorful as hell.

Malts, fruits, caramel and resin in the aroma. Amber with a off white head. Medium to heavy sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Medium body with a average carbonation. Bitter and dry finish. Overall a nice hoppy ale with a rich flavour.

Bottle (12 fl. oz.). Murky reddish amber colour. Half-inch off-white head, retains well, leaves an uneven film and a band of lacing. Aroma of fruity hops, resin, caramel, dust.
