3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this beer on 2/11/1998. Color is a deep rich red, good carbonation and nice head. Aroma is a mild scent of toasted malts, no noticeable hops. Taste is a heavy but smooth flavor, it stares off with a creamy body full of roasted malt flavors. Goes down well and finishes buy leaving you with a nutty malt taste and a slight hop bitterness. Its a very well rounded beer with rich flavors all the way around. This would be a good beer any time you’re in the mood for a nice full flavored beer.

Yes, I have found some old notes. Rudy copper color with a moderate off-white head. Simple caramel aromas along with a touch of raisins and floral hops. Flavors follow aromas in simplicity, but things are a touch dryer than the fruit and caramel suggest. A bit like dry toast.

Oh, come on! This is beyond doubt the worst beer I’ve ever tasted. It’s filth. The stench alone is enough to turn most stomachs.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Reddish brown with a very thin head. Nose is slightly vinous, slightly sour with a hint of toffee. Flavor is earthy and slightly medicinal. Not one of my favorites.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Very strong hops in the nose and the sip. Very overpowering. Not very appealing, not my style admittedly. Good appearance and mouthfeel. Just too hoppy for me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Ruby red in color with a thin head. More malt than hops in the aroma. Reminds me of Killians red, the Coors version. Not bad if you like the style.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not really bad, but not exactly good. The appearance was nice with a big fluffy head that lasted for a while and seemed really dark for this color of a beer. The beer was dark for an amber, verging on brown. The aroma had me thinking this would be something worth drinking, nice sweet malt, slight fruitiness, but the flavor was a little bland even ending up a bit dry.

Deep amber red colour. Fruity esters are too strong in the aroma. Flavour is overtly malty and fruity with a hint of chocolate malt, it definitley needs some more hops to balance. I agree with TrappistAlesRules in that this is reminiscient Of Mad River Jamaica Red. But I think that is a bad thing.
