JoeMcPhee (9267) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 17, 2005
Copper-coloured beer with a creamy white head. Sweet malty aroma, faint caramel, toast, sweet candyish finish. Could use some more hops in here to balance the sweetness that tends to get cloying.

rickgordon (3851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAY 4, 2005
Draught at the Empire State location. Cloudy darki red-ish. Earthy nose, little roasty. Cocoa powder notes. Earthy roast malt in flavour along with toffee and caramel. American hops makes the difference, from what would have been a boring beer. Nice hop bitterness.

notwoohoo (109) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 2, 2005
Served in 5oz. sampler glass. Very grainy and slightly smoky aroma similar to an irish ale. Definite munich malt in the nose. Brilliant red color and sheet lacing on the glass. Flavors of toffee, smoke, and grains. Overall a good irish red ale, recommended.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 16, 2005
(On tap) Pronounced darkish brown colour, nice slightly burned malt character and a good hoppiness (which turns out to be a house characteristica). Very typical fruity/flowery notes. More akin to a Brown Ale I’d say. 5,5% ABV

Dark reddish apperance to it. Had a nice sweet aroma with pretty decent flavor.

boto (2086) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - FEB 25, 2005
Draught @ Times Square location: This one pours a clear copper color. There wasn’t too much head to it at all. There was a slight roasty aroma to it. The taste was somewhat roasty with some malt sweetness, but there was some mild hops balancing the sweetness. Definitely nothing spectacular, but it is just a decent amber ale.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2005
Average Amber ale. Good red color with modest head. Hoppy yet balanced nicely with crystal malts. Reminded me a bit like boont amber but this one had less body. Pretty good overall though.

waveman352 (178) - Saratoga Springs, New York, USA - JAN 12, 2005
Ruby red color with a thin white head. Sweet flavors and aromas with a very bitter aftertaste. I would have liked to see some more lasting flavors considering its finish is kind of strong and harsh. Pretty good beer.

spkldhenlvr24 (517) - Newburgh/Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 28, 2004
Good clear, ruby body, small white head. Decent roasted, sweet aroma. Slight harsh aftertaste. Nice roasted, spicy flavor. Good.

LilKem (1213) - Marietta, Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2004
this was decent, and better than i expected. amber with golden highlights in the glass with medium white head. a bit on the spiced side, with almost a carmel undertone... really hit the spot after a long day at work.
