Little aroma, dominated by Carmel malt. Looks great. Medium amber body. Good malt taste with just enough hops to balance.

Unanimous choice for a drainpour by five tasters at the brewpub in Seattle. Seemed to be flavored by added syrup. Not a nice beer.

Bottle: (12oz). Hazy Red. I was having trouble coming up with a way to describe the taste that I did not like on the tail end and another rates called it metallic. I have never thought of that as a flavor, but it does a pretty good job of describing it. Not need to try again.

Draught at Hales Ales Brewery and Pub
Hazy amber color. Dry mouthfeel, with almost no aroma, traces of caramel flavor, fairly bitter and a bit metallic.
This is really the darker sister of their Pale Ale.

12oz in Seattle. Copper. Pale amber aroma. metallic, quite musty. Nothing terribly interesting, nor unappealing. Ok.

Lenin would be proud to drink this stuff. Hints of caramel. Very little foam... low carbonation (or did I just get an old bottle of this stuff).

Pours a cloudy dark amber with a moderate off white frothy head. Aroma is caramel with a nice earthy hop flavours. Taste is caramel and a nice earthly hop bitterness.

Dogbrick (8680) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2012
Sample at the brewpub. Hazy reddish-amber color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates steadily. Short strings of lacing. Caramel malt and hops in the nose. Medium body with flavors of dank malt, caramel and citrusy hops. The finish is mildly bitter with a malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Malty aroma, not too much, though. Fairly decent slightly roasted malt flavour. Watered down feel.

reebtogi (4388) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 30, 2012
355ml bottle pours an orange amber color with a finger of white head that leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel with some hints of chocolate and roasted barley and citrus. Taste is bold caramel malt sweetness with some roasted grain and citrusy hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, very malt forward brew with some light hops and was respectable but not a great example of the style.
