COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A deep amber colored American ale, featuring a rich malty body. Cascade and Willamette hops add a complex hop flavor and aroma. This ale is exceptionally balanced between malty sweetness and delicate hop bitterness.

Dark amber with big tan head. Aroma is light bread. Taste is malty bready. Some hop flavors and bitter but not until the finish. True to style goes well with salted pretzel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Rated from notes taken 4 Feb 2012 -- My favorite red, smooth melding of malt with a lot of caramel that gives way to a nice roast. Easily my favorite red of the 2011/12 timeframe but haven’t drank since then.

Dark amber, clear pour with an huge head. One full finger of fluffy off-white head in the glass. Tons of head retention. Large malty nose. Good taste. Huge malty caramel sweetness. Drinking at the beach and goes well.

Bottle. Dark orange color, light head. Very malty and sweet. Palate is a little syrupy with long costing finish.

Absolutely sure I’ve had this one, but never rated it. Had it at a wedding this past weekend, so here we go. Poured a slightly ruby amber color with a small white head. Aroma was some toasty notes, floral hops. Flavor was caramel malt, lightly floral notes. A decent amber. More malt sweetness than anything else.

EyeAmBaldman (318) - Illinois, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Pours a deep amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is sweet malts, caramel, and grains. Feels oily on the tongue with a front end bitterness and a hint of sweet malts. I really wanted to like this beer, but it just is off for me. The overpowering sweetness ruins this beer.

Pours an amber, with an interesting grapefruit hue. Sweet malts, syrup on the nose. Malty, bready taste with caramel and hints of brown sugar. An excellent amber ale.

On tap. Pours an amber color with white head. Caramel, malty aromas. Caramel, slight piney hop flavors. Not bad.
