3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle consumed on 11/17/2010 in Whistler, British Columbia. Purchased from the Brewery. Colour was strikingly red with slight traces of brown. Nose: Apple, caramel, roasted deep malt, pecan, firewood. Quite nice. Taste: Medium sweet, light bitter, medium sour. Pot roast, hot caramel, cough syrup. Sweet but not overly, great mouthfeel and exploding with malt. Great stuff.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark red amber, nice head. Malty caramel aroma, sweet caramel malty taste... needs more hops to balance it out, but still enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
1L flip-top bottle. Pours a redidsh medium amber with a thick and lasting peral head. Earthy aroma. Tastes very malty - notes of caramel, bread, some chocolate, with a slight earthy hop bitterness. Finishes with a good malt taste, same earthy bitterness. This is a pretty good ’malty amber’ type beer, well worth future purchases...

Redish amber color with tight tan head. Aroma is all malt. Taste is mellow and finishes nicely at the roof of the mouth. Nice and smooth.

Very Light but fragrant nose, slight flowers
Taste sharp hops up front, spicy malts give nice round flavour. Good light starter beer, basic but well done light red ale. (What Rickard’s Red wishes it was.)

Tried in bottle at ~15C. Pleasant but mute nutty nose. Smooth drinking red with enough (though modest) hops to liven things up.
