COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The warden of JailHouse Brewing Company Certifies this summer seasonal red ale to be your well-deserved reward for good behavior and expects you will find its enticing flavors and aromas may carry through the long, hard, days of summer. Conjugal Visit is a medium bodied American Red Ale with a nice bed of malt roastiness, complimented by a titillating smack of centennial and palisade hops. The slight linger of bitterness is a reminder that this may be the last Conjugal Visit for quite a while.

Ratman197 (10094) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 8, 2011
Bomber courtesy of Craftbeerdesign (thanks Geoff) poured a clear dark reddish asmber with a lasting amber head. Aroma of caremel, toasted malt, earthiness and light fruittiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, earthiness, toasted malt and a hint of fruittiness with a smooth lingering malty finish. A solid malty amber but I prefer a little more hops in an Amber.

Dogbrick (8507) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - OCT 21, 2012
Sample at GABF 10/11/2012, thanks to Bluemeow76 for assistance with note-taking. Reddish-amber color with a medium off-white head and strings of lace. Aroma of roasted malt. Light body with flavors of caramel, sweet malt and a touch of hops. The finish is short and malty. Just average overall.

ChainGangGuy (4395) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - SEP 12, 2011
22 ounce bottle - $8.49 at Olde Crabapple Bottle Shoppe in Alpharetta, Georgia. Hopefully, each of these subsequent future one-offs wonít see the incremental price boost of the releases so far.

Appearance: Pours an opaque, amber-brown body with a tall, sudsy, ecru head.

Smell: Malty aroma, both bready and toasty and with some slightly sweetish, nutty butterscotch notes on the perimeter. Grassy, lightly citrusy hops.

Taste: Bready, deeply toasty malts with just a sliver of roast to start things off. Modestly sweet. Earthy, citrusy hops with a punchy though not overbearing bitterness. A bit of growing grassiness as it beings to warm up a tad. Also some more nuttiness and a hint of diacetyl showing as it goes along. Drying, earthy finish with some bitterness enduring into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Itís decent enough, both amply hoppy and malty (though not particularly sweet). Iím not so certain itís nearly nine bucks decent, but still.

unclemattie (4248) - Georgia, USA - AUG 29, 2011
22oz bottle. Medium reddish-brown color, white head. Aroma of fresh cut pine, caramel malts, some herbal florals. Good amount of toasted malts, harsh / sharp pine bitterness. Overall, this beer seems to be missing something. Perhaps a bit of buttery diacytl?

dmac (4161) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 27, 2011
Bomber from Thebeersommelier, thanks Matt. Poured a chunky brown body with an average sized foamy head. Aroma of bread, caramel, grains and grassy hops. Medium to fuller bodied with average carbonation. Flavor is loads of malts with lots of grains, toast and a light dirty citrus hoppiness. Solid amber ale.

drfabulous (4131) - Lexington, Kentucky, USA - NOV 7, 2011
22 ounce thanks to Debi. Big malty caramel flavor. Something akin to a brown ale. Lacking the hops overdrive I expect from a big red. I may be drinking this too long after it was bottled and the hops have had some fade. Somewhat tasty finish.

emacgee (4096) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Pours sharp reddish orange with one finger sandstone tan head. Nose is citrusy and herbal, peanut hull and bready malt. Moderate bitterness, piney and sharp hop character. Straight peanut hull.

burg326 (3840) - Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2014
Poured a deep amber red almost brown color from the 22 ounce bottle with aromas of sweet bread, caramel, light hops, a touch of fruit and some light bitterness. Flavors match the aromas with some maltiness and booze in the aftertaste.

bottle. deep amber, almost brown, with a small white head. nose is toasty malts with a light floral hop note. flavor is malty with toasted malts and nuts. no sweetness. some bitter hops that donít really flavor the beer much except to add bitterness which is fine for this style. i would prefer a little more sweetness overall because without it seems a bit astringent.
