Medium copper red color with minimal head. Sweet caramel malt body with decent palate, but a bland finish. Your standard "red ale".

Ibrew2or3 (6890) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 2, 2006

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Bottle. Pours a clear ruby tinged amber with a medium to large sized beige head. A touch of oxidized paper on the nose, sweet malt and a touch of a hoppy backbone. Medium bodied, very smooth. Lots of caramel and more oxidization, raisins and paper. Finishes a bit warm and boozy with more sweetness. Interesting.

Bottled. Malty caramel nose, earthy, chocolate. Nice malt flavor, chocolate and caramel, very rich and rounded with fruit and a good level of sweetness. Bready. Nice and drinkable.
