Brewed with imported pale malt, Honey malt for flavor, three types of caramel malt for color and flavor, Vienna and Munich malt for body. The ruby red color hints at its rich caramel maltiness. Hopped with a good amount of German hops to tame the sweetness. This is a perfect middle-of-the-road beer for those who do not want a beer that is too light, too dark, or too bitter. 35 IBUs O.G.= 1.056 s.g.

[Tap] Amber colored pour with very little head. Aroma is of dusty grains and caramel. Mostly caramel in the flavor notes. Lighter honey and fruit notes as well. Low carbonation and slick mouthfeel. It’s OK. Tasting notes from 11/2011.

Pours an amber brown. Minimal head. Some lacing. I think this one was infected or the lines needed cleaning. Tasted very astringent. Somewhat sour and a bit like rotten fruit. Yuck.

Had it on tap at Hog Haus. Aromas of malts and citrus permeated the beer. Initial taste of maltiness and caramel. Not a bad beer, although not too memorable.

Deep copper body with a khaki head. The aroma was strong caramel with some pecans. The taste was light orange peels with some biscuits. Lightly bitter with some tobacco notes. Decent.

On draft at the pub with Brett and Hannah. Pours a golden to light amber color. The aroma was bready/biscuity with a touch of caramel. The flavor was rather malty for an amber or pale ale, and while the caramel-bready/biscuity base was interesting, something in this thing (either those combination of flavors or something else) was too medicinally / chemical tasting to enjoy this one. I was hoping that after each sip this taste would go away, but....

On tap Hog Haus Brewing Co. All around good beer crisp, clean, smooth and refreshing... Again I ask you, what kind of beer is it? Ratebeer describes it as an American Pale Ale, Hog Haus’ website describes it a Pale Ale, there menu describes it as Irish Style Red Ale... Worth a try

Real roasted caramel, fresh bready aroma. Dark red-orange with a thin, white head. Rich, roasted, chewy caramel and a hint of licorice in the finish. Very nice, but my complaint is that the finish is very abrupt. Medium to light body with an almost creamy texture. Not so much a pale ale, but I liked it.
